tree house allstars


waddup fam

mathematik and citizen kane from canada are one of the top names when it comes to indy rap from canada. over a decade passed and their debut releases still are in high demand. now, i don't want to focus on these today, but about 2.5 years ago i spotted two new records by the tree house label. with the help of france they put out an ep and three 12"s in '05 and '06. of course the tracks were newer sounding, but i felt them pretty much (and i don't like a lot of the new stuff in general).

the first release was called "headnodz ep" and features citizen kane, zaki, reign, mathematik & dubb ill, who already had his part on the reality and facts 12". all tracks are produced by the headnodz aka nick holder & kaje outta toronto.

HEADNODZ EP '05

1. CITIZEN KANE FEAT. ZAKI "LIES"
2. REIGN "HAPPY ENDINGS"
3. DUB ILL "CALL IT"
4. MATHEMATIK "AROUND"



the second record is a 12" by mathematik and has three joints on it. besides the track "around", which is featured on the headnodz ep as well, you'll get another two joints. again, productions by the headnodz and the fishermen, of which i've never heard before.


MATHEMATIK 12" '05

1. ON TOP
2. TONIGHT
3. AROUND


in my opinion both records are pretty slept on and didn't get a lot of promotion. check them out, pretty mellow stuff.

the other two 12"s i was talking about were single releases by zaki and ill dub. the zaki record is more soul than rap and the dub ill 12" i never bought.

tree house also released a 13-track strong cd longplayer with these artists in 2006.




enjoy
