‘The Sinking’ LP is the latest release from Conscious Route (CCF/SOS) who teams up with producer Sean El (United Front). The pair teamed up after meeting at a Soul Mischief gig back in 2012 and since then have strengthened their link by collaborating on tracks over the last year, most of which are included as the back-bone of this release. Eighteen tracks of deep, the long player is a brilliant collection of Boom Bap fused beats complimented with a feast of conscious flows and controversial punch-lines. It’s no wonder they’ve got the Internet going nuts with a string of solid reviews on leading Hip-Hop blogs.
The album has a host of features, including Wolverhampton’s Big Dutty Deeze, Cambridge’s Dillah from B-illa, Edinburgh’s Werd & Jordan Butler (SOS), Blasfima Sinna, London-based singer Anna Fontana and many more. With Sean El also dropping in on the raps, this diverse LP was mostly spot-written, apart from four tracks, with the recording of the beats and raps all completed in just a five hour period! With a very diverse beat selection there seems to be something included here for every kind of Hip-Hop head, even turning the ears of Hip-Hop non-believers and haters to maybe even liking a track or two! Basically, this is a must listen!
