Typical Cats CD repress!
June 17, 2010 by Jefe

Finally, after a few years of being out of print, we have a new repress of the 1st Typical Cats CD.

This CD came out originally in February 2001 and helped establish Galapagos4 as one of the premier independent hip-hop labels in the world. It's considered a Chicago and/or underground classic by many.

77Bros label launched / Perseus Noble digital release
June 13, 2010 by Jeff

Galapagos4 introduces new side label 77Bros

77Bros is a label created and run by Justus Roe aka djwhitelightning and longtime G4 art director Josh Grotto. The aim is to put out more rock oriented material, with the help and guidance of Galapagos4.

The first official joint release is the digital release of the debut album by Perseus Noble.

Perseus Noble is a band of fellows founded by the spirits. The inspiration for the electro psychwave phenomenon that compiles their works is demonstrated in the audio nuances collected from passing alien vessels. The founder, main guitar player, singer, and song writer for the group, Justin D. Bushman is a self proclaimed bio conduit for the chaotic reality waves that pulsate through our infinite chaos. Justin found that the best place to harness these waves is the middle of the desert. So that is where he went. It worked. A new sound was born in the sunset sheen.

With strange pals Justus Roe on the key boards and electro rhythms, and production, and Travis Yarak on dueling counter rhythm guitar functionality systems and back up vocals, the sounds become a beautiful gathering of audio kinetic phenomenon. With catchy licks and unforgettable fuzzy electronic tonal jizz all over the place, few will not enjoy at least a couple of the dynamic hits on the album.

Check out a track here: http://www.galapagos4.com/sounds/Perseus_Noble/Perseus_Noble_-_Shift_Your_Eyes.mp3

Perseus Noble's debut self-titled album will be available digitally everywhere on June 15th 2010.

May 18, 2010 by Jefe

AVAILABLE NOW on galapagos4.com, iTunes, Amazon and all of your favorite digital music outlets.

Venerable rhyme spitter and Galapagos4 co-founder Offwhyte serves up a brand new digital single for 2010, entitled "Ebbs and Flows Remix". Produced by up-and-coming Chicago beatsmith Young Live (The Basix, Starters DJs), the track exudes a genre-breaking, uptempo sound complete with Offwheezy's signature razor-sharp flow and scratches by Germany's DJ Bizkid.



The original "Ebbs and Flows" is a song by Galapagos4's own experimental rock band, Royce. "Ebbs and Flows" was featured on Royce's Tuff Love album, with Royce laying the sonic groundwork for raps by emcees Offwhyte and Mestizo. Offwhyte re-worked his lyrics from the original song and added some more lyrics which he found relevant to the vibe of the new track. The title track is mixed by Wes Restless.

FREE B-SIDE TRACK

Purchase the "Ebbs and Flows Remix" Digital Single on Galapagos4.com and get a free bonus track - "Grasp the Wind" produced by and featuring Chicago underground legend Gilead7 (Reserved Records) with scratches by DJ Seanile.

Break The Mold: A Chicago Mixtape
April 8, 2010 by Jefe

’Break The Mold’ is a mixtape by DJ Bizkid, who was asked to compile Chicago tracks from Galapagos4 & extended family into one 80 minute mixtape. The result was ’Break The Mold’, an in-depth look into the past 10 years of innovation in Chicago hip-hop from the G4 perspective.

Featured are classic tracks, joints you may never have heard or forgot about, exclusive never-before-heard cuts from Robust & Hellsent, mixes, mashups and other Chicago related material all sewn together and sliced apart again by the skilled technician from Germany.

This is a tribute to Chicago from G4, as well as a look into our contributions to the music side of Chicago’s current cultural landscape.

Enjoy.
