“COGNITIVE DISS” (full album)

CARPETFACE's 2nd solo album is scheduled for mid-summer digital release with limited edition T-shirt / download bundle, a 12” Vinyl LP release to follow late Sept, a remix-album release planned for Novemver and various short-run vinyl TBC. A collection of tracks centering around the themes of paradigm shift, entering maturity, compassion in the face of corporate corruption and channeling angry energy into constructive solutions for future generations, told from the point of view of a single father sick of raging at the machine. Guest rap vocals, production collabs and turntable contributions come from DONALD D (RHYME SYNDICATE) UGLY DUCKLING's YOUNG EINSTEIN, DJAR ONE (Beats House Records), DJ MONEYSHOT (THE ALLERGIES / Jalapeno Records), with remixes from a host of producers.

Digital Single “Painstaking Arranger” ft DONALD D

Released on NEWBIAS Records

A slinky Curtis Mayfield/Miles Davis-influenced track about jazz-clubs, musical legends, crate-digging and playlists, also featuring vocals from rap veteran DONALD D, (frontman and co-founder with ICE-T of legendary group RHYME SYNDICATE) 7” Vinyl to follow later in Summer with a DJ SUPREME remix on the B-side.
