Denizen Kane - Tree City Legends + more news
July 23, 2002 by Jeff

What’s up, now?! It’s been a minute, but we’ve been hard at work on some new Chicago summer heat.

Finally, we have remastered and repressed the Typical Cats vinyl LP. Sound quality is improved, and full color cover art is still intact. Available here at the product page and everywhere else that knows hip hop.

DENIZEN KANE PRESENTS TREE CITY LEGENDS - Street Date July 9th, 2002

As a member of both the spoken word group I Was Born With Two Tongues and the underground hip-hop group Typical Cats, Dennis Kim (aka Denizen Kane) has proven his versatility as a poet, a lyricist & an MC. On "Tree City Legends", his first solo album, he shows his talents as a musician & songwriter, spanning everything from straight up hip-hop to experimental instrumentation & vocals. Beats are provided by DJ Natural (Typical Cats), KP the Illustrado (The Pacifics) & Anacron (The Netherworlds). Additional production was handled by Denizen Kane & DJ White Lightning. One of the jewels of the record is the inclusion of the first new Typical Cats group track to be released in over a year and a half. "Calling Card" is a raw, fierce track that showcases the 3 MCs, Qwel, Qwazaar & Denizen ripping the mic to shreds over banging DJ Natural production. Also featured are the singing talents of Tina on the heavyhearted "Drown (Bless The Dead)". "Tree City Legends" is an introspective expression of Denizen’s life experiences in Chicago, New York & Oakland. This 8 track EP is just a taste of his artistic vision. Look for more from Denizen Kane on upcoming Typical Cats projects as well as his appearance on Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam on HBO.

OFFWHYTE "THE FIFTH SUN" - September 2002

The new Offwhyte LP will be released in the U.S. by Galapagos4 & jointly in Europe & Japan by Galapagos4 and British electronica imprint Peacefrog Records. The album features beats by Meaty Ogre, Openi, Alias, the late Metrognome & Offwhyte. Guests MC’s on the album are Qwazaar ("Get a Hold"), Qwel ("Masonry"), & Psiv Abs ("Text"). Just wait...

QWEL "THE RUBBER DUCKIE EXPERIMENT" - September 2002

Oh hail yeah... All new full length follow up to the "Pawn Shop". Production by Dwight Lightnin, Meaty Ogre, Maker of TBA, Jackson Jones...

Beyond that... you’ll see...
