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.

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 Chicagos current cultural landscape.
60 minute live mix from G4 member & Germanys own, DJ Bizkid.
Mixed live at Twenty One Soundbar, Paris, France.
February 24th, 2010.
