Without sacrificing their soulful disposition to hip-hop, legendary Bay Area group Souls of Mischief have been able to rework their sound over the years to produce consecutive classics. While the title track to their 1993 debut LP ’93 ’til Infinity continues to receive airplay from across the board, the Oakland group have been hard at work with new concepts and sounds. The latest project finds the Souls of Mischief collaborating with acclaimed composer Adrian Younge on a conceptual album titled There is Only Now – a 19-track LP made up of retro hip-hop riffs and intellectual lyrics. In the latest HYPETRAK TV episode, the duo break down the album’s core motifs while we also get a glimpse at their studio jam sessions. Slated for an August 26 release, stay tuned for more from There Is Only Now which will feature guest appearances from Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg and Ali Shaheed Muhammed. Check out the feature above and keep up with the latest music over at HYPETRAK.
