Milwaukee’s Hip-Hop landscape is by and large a male dominated entity, per capita speaking. But, that is NOT to say that Milwaukee doesn’t have some extremely dope women doing fantastic things in the medium of Hip-Hop.
Last decade gave us two women who are super nice on the M-I-C, crafting a great sound within their respective groups and also as solo artists. One of those artists is Element Everest, one of the members of the now defunct Black Elephant. The other person is Lunaversol9 of Def Harmonic.
Lunaversol9 teamed up with Listening Party to release what they are calling a mini-album, A Novel Slur, which contains 5 tracks of poignant lyricism and groove based beats, creating a nice atmospheric (and I’m not talking about the Slug/Ant Atmosphere) feel to the music.
My favorite track, “Hellbent” is the lead track of the project and features JTodd on production. The rest of the project is produced by Brusabardis, and it features vocals from JTodd and Epcot. The artwork was done by Samantha Sanborn.
Listening Party is offering the album up to you as a “pay what you like” consumer experience, and you can get it RIGHT HERE. Go over and check out Listening Party’s WEBSITE as well and see what else they have to offer.
On a sidenote, Def Harmonic’s new album is set to be released Oct. 12th with a party on Oct. 9th, following a pre-sale period that begins Sept. 28th. They’re pressing vinyl for the project as well, but only 500 copies…so make sure you get your order in once that pre-sale hits.
