ALL URBAN OUTFIELD is the brainchild of two Seattle-based rap mutants, p.WRECKS and K. Clifton. Both have a long history in the hip-hop scene around the Pacific Northwest, both as producers and emcees – All Urban Outfield finds the two working together to create a new vocabulary and aesthetic for underground hip-hop, inspired as much by the science fiction beatdowns of Kool Keith as the raw powerviolence of Spazz.
This is hip-hop that deals with isolation, psychedelic visions, imminent apocalypse. This is the sound of graffiti-covered basements ringing to bass-heavy MPC beats; of dusty beats on tape as you traverse the decaying urban sprawl. Two emcees holding the mic with confidence despite the world's ignorant turning towards Molly-addled peace and love bullshit, ultra-capitalist fever dreams and incipient species death.
Drawing on a tradition that nods to the best of Def Jux, Rhymesayers, Doomtree and Anticon, they make hip-hop for outsiders, freaks, and kids with their hoodies pulled low over their eyes. They are All Urban Outfield, and this is Sacrifice Fly.
The full album drops digitally on Black Lantern on 24 May, 2014, alongside pre-orders for a deluxe, limited edition CD (dropping September 2014). Look out for limited edition All Urban Outfield art prints, coming soon from Black Lantern.
