Exploding with soul, this first offering from producer Miss Tofelees showcases just how Hypomanic explores the music of the past whilst adding a contemporary twist. Releasing music of this quality for free, it's easy to see why the collective has already begun to receive admiration from its peers.
"Crisp hip-hop beats - and at my favourite price. Always good to see people doing it for the music, not for the dough."
- Roots Manuva (MC)
"The beats have that classic Hip Hop essence, just so soulful"
- Just Muz, MC & Spoken Word Artist (Radio One)
"I like the concept, but MORE SO the ethos! THIS IS WHY I DO MUSIC!"
- Paradise the Prolific (MC and founder of MOBO-nominated 57th Dynasty collective)
