The New Math – “Get Bodied”

(@lifeafterhiphop @books_one)
On the heels of releasing their album, titled Time and Mind, San Jose hip hop duo The New Math are back with a new single. “Get Bodied” finds Dem One traveling through time to deliver a hip hop banger, spitting boastful bars about what they bring to the party, over B.O.O.K.S. One‘s beat of 8-bit electronics dances alongside hard-hitting drums and recognizable vocal samples. Listen below, download for free, and let that music of the future vibrate in your ear.

The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats (part 3)

Good morning, readers! I am proud to announce that the third part in my The Monsters Are Due On CrayonBeats compilation series is out TODAY. If you aren’t familiar with this concept compilation series that I have curated, let me briefly explain what it is.

As an 80’s baby and a child of the 90s, I read the Goosebumps books as a kid and, boy, did a lot of them scare me. In my years, I’ve also seen all of The Twilight Zone episodes, and continue to watch the series when it marathons during holidays. Similarly, they are really cool, innovative creations that tell tales involving themes of horror, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, comedy and beyond–they take your mind into strange and scary situations that are based on dream and reality.

B.O.O.K.S. One – “Yeah Yeah Yeah”

California-based producer B.O.O.K.S. One (@books_one) dropped a brand new beat yesterday, and it’s called “Yeah Yeah Yeah”. Looped vocals bounce around chunky drums, echoing claps, bubbly effects, and twisting synth lines, giving us a unique spacey hip hop tune to bump out of our speakers and nod our heads to. This track can be found on his forthcoming EP, titled TIME and MIND.

When I asked B.O.O.K.S. One about the EP, he said: “Well, I have many sides to my production and really felt like letting people hear this side. There are five tracks. Almost all original beats. Only one musical sample on a track called “Hard To Burn”. It’s slow, too. Slow in a grimy way… neck snappers. There isn’t a lot out there like this.” There you have it! Listen to “Yeah Yeah Yeah” now, and look out for more!

The New Math – “Chromatism” video

Back in 2012, I made a brief post about San Jose-based duo’s The New Math‘s self-titled EP. Comprised of Dem One on the mic and B.O.O.K.S. One on production, the two released a brand new album, titled Greetings From The Future, on December 16th, 2014, via Low Self Discipline Records.

The full-length album has 16 tracks in total, and based on the album sampler up on Bandcamp, it’s heavily rooted with hip hop drum breaks and spacey, electronic sounds that make it seem like the future they are talking about, is that of living on another planet. There’s a great sci-fi sound throughout it all, which I’m totally loving. Soon as I hear the album in full, I’ll let you know more (review).

The New Math – “Origin”

I haven’t talked about The New Math (@lifeafterhiphop @books_one) in two years, and it seems that they haven’t been active since then either. The San Jose-based rapper/producer duo changed that on May 22nd, though, when they dropped a brand new single. “Origin” is a 9-minute song that finds them posing a scenario in which they travel back in time to the early 90’s and make a demo tape that warns the world of what lies ahead in the future.

Dem One and B.O.O.K.S. One are The New Math

Dem One on the mic and B.O.O.K.S. One on the beats… for a classic emcee/producer collaboration. “The New Math” was released on June 26th via Low Self Discipline Records. If you’re in the San Jose area tonight, hit up Clout at 7:30PM for The New Math listening party (see the flyer below).

You can watch a couple of EP teasers, as well as a couple videos where Dem One and B.O.O.K.S. One talk about one another. Funny shit. Then, stream the “That’s Me” single.
