Chicago rapper Xception and Amsterdam producer G-DO will release their official debut album ‘Mood Of The Music’ on 26 July 2010. After becoming friends almost two years ago in Amsterdam, G-DO and Xception have been working on new music continuously. 'Mood Of The Music' will mark the first official release from both artists. The album showcases a mature, soulful, jazz-influenced style of Hip-Hop. Some might say the sound reminds them somewhat of Slum Village or Reflection Eternal, but it’s best to decide for yourself!
Xception’s rhyming combines a Chicago flavour with introspective lyrics and clever wordplay, while G-DO creates musical landscapes that are a combination of funky, jazzy sounds combined with hard-hitting drums and live instrumentation. To record this album, G-DO and Xception met up both in Amsterdam and Chicago, eventually finishing the album by sending music back and forth through the Internet. The album features North Carolina singer Multiplist, whose distinctive multi-layered sound adds a soulful touch to two tracks on the album-- ‘Grown Kids’ and ‘Always’.
The lead single ‘Fly Away’ and, B-side, ‘Paint a Picture’ are already gaining increasing attention in the Underground Hip-Hop scene. You can now download the album or individual tracks for free at Bandcamp [ http://g-doxception.bandcamp.com ].
