  2. 'We gain freedom when we have paid the full price.' 

    ~Rabindranath Tagore

    During the time in which this music was created, I’ve had ‘freedom’ on my mind. Kinda dominates my present experience…this yearning if you will…a quenchless thirst.

    And it’s had me kicking around this self-imposed ‘koan’, that if I am to truly experience absolute freedom, would I even continue to exist? Or is it only possible with the metaphorical death of all things I relate and cling to as me?

    Well i’ll be fucked if I know…but it sure as shit spawns some good music. ;)

    may your ears be tickled and your soul soothed.

    in joy…The Beautiful Conspiracy

    'Seeker of Unearthed Sound'


  15. Today’s release showcases the work of up and coming producer, eu-IV (Pronounced you-four), a beatmaker hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. eu-IV brings something different to the table, with raw, minimalist cosmic hip hop energy bursting with dark overtones, progressively shaping the foundations set by prolific artists such as J. Dilla and Flying Lotus.

    This new single ‘Outchea’ simmers with primal energy. The song commences with clanking, rolling percussion which serves as a backbone for an energetic eruption of anger. Kick drums thump with purpose as abrasive synths glide over the dark, dissonant scene set by eu-IV.
