Album Bio - DecadeLater (parts I & II) 10 years in the making by the best band nobody ever heard of. A retrospective/remix/best-of all wrapped in one. One complete full length split into two EP's. Part 1 was left largely untouched, with the original samples still intact. It represents a snapshot in time, capturing some of the most innovative underground hiphop made during ughh's golden era (98 - 04) Influenced by Rawkus Records, El-P, Mr Lif, Violent By Design, Blackstar, Binary Star, Reef Invisible Empire, Self Scientific, etc). The record is for promo use only and is free at http://www.thestarvingartists.bandcam... Part 2 was completely remade from the ground up, and features 100% original instrumentation & production by MC Escher (aka The Electrician). Built up & torn down countless times during an insane creative process by MCE. A preview of what's to come for the band (brand new EP "The Renaissance" coming Summer 2013).
About The Starving Artists Growing up in Philadelphia, PA, Michelangelo (vocals) and MC Escher (vocals/production) fused elements of underground hiphop with elements of indie rock. They released their first tape in the summer of 2001. Six albums and countless b-sides, live shows and recordings later, they hung up their mics, having let life (and the economy) divide & conquer what was once one of the most promising hiphop duo's ever.
Years later, in the spring of 2011, MC Escher was going through his archives and stumbled across the old sound library. Touched by it, he vowed never to let it collect dust & die on a hard drive. Work on Part II started the very next week. 6 months later it was completed. And 6 months after that, Part I.
