Offsetmusic Debut EP. Instrumental, turntablist, electronic funk.
A long time ago we all got the message that it’s like a jungle sometimes, and Koncept wants to remind us all that it ain’t the adversity you face… it’s the way you face it. Koncept opens up a window into his world, and if you look through it you’ll find that there’s a lot of soul to be seen as we “Watch the Sky Fall.” Koncept tells it like it is, spitting verses about the obstacles in his path and the dreams he clings to as he struggles past them. Despite the apocalyptic title, there’s a current of optimism that runs through the record. Given the list of friends dropping in to help out; there should be. This may be a solo outing, but Koncept still has the support of his Brown Bag family (J57, The Audible Doctor and Soul Khan all make appearances) – as well as a bit of help from the likes of Royce da 5’9, Marco Polo, and DJ Brace.
Brown Bag AllStars — they’re doing their thing…To hear a younger generation still keeping it raw like that lets you know that we can’t stop.” – DJ Premier

The idea was that the two artists record their first feelings.
The studio work which was applied later to document this collaboration used many mixing techniques to accent the live recordings. This album is very live and ‘off the top’ sounding but care was taken to make sure it had a long life in the ear of its listeners.
After winning a Juno for best instrumental album of the year with Nostomania, Brace decided to start his own label by the same name to honor music of a similar kind. Nostomania records has already released a 7”, entitled Everyday featuring ESL Artists, Ancient Astronauts, and Brown Bag AllStars.
Synesthasia is the second album from Brace’s Electric Nosehair Orchestra Project.
Part of the concept for Nostomania was the idea that sound can pull up long neglected memories. Synesthasia is something like a crossed wire in the brain where one sense connects with another; a color might have a certain smell, or maybe you can taste a sound.
Once again visual artists were asked to provide images inspired by the songs on the record, but this time around don’t think about the places you’ve been.
Synesthasia opens with something that sounds like a mothership landing at some distant port of call. That’s the first clue that you’ve arrived in a strange land. Suddenly an unknown voice gives you the instruction to relax, and it’s time to let the music take control of your senses and guide you on your journey.
While there are some familiar elements from the last time around, it’s no longer what you’ve heard, seen, tasted or smelled before. So don’t be afraid to forge some new connections, and be sure to take a mental snapshot of whatever you might find.
All the songs on “Unity Amidst Chaos” were composed within one session, ensnaring those creative peeks and inspirational blisses. As a result, every song encompasses the genuine entity of these specific moments. In turn, many of the songs on this album might sound incomplete, or lack certain textual elements. Nevertheless, the root of these subtle deficiencies ironically substantiate what I believe to be true artistry.
