Project: Full Melt
We at GhettoBlasterMagazine.Com are excited to share this with you all…see below for information on this project…
“Few artists excel at both music and the visual arts. But even fewer succeed in combining the two cohesively. Following up his work producing for First Light, a project from Hieroglyphics crew members Pep Love and Opio, fellow Hiero Imperium artist Unjust releases Full Melt, his own instrumentalalbum and self-directed audiovisual project.
Unjust first became involved in the hip-hop world as a designer, and his artistic talents landed him design work with luminaries including J-Dilla, E-40, Rakim, Tech N9ne, Ice Cube, and many others. Yet Unjust never saw any separation in the two worlds; he explains, “…whenever I heard a song as kid, I’d see colors and shapes, and vice versa with art, especially my grandma’s paintings and mom’s stained glass…I never thought of [Full Melt] as just an album, but an experience.”
Unjust spent five years collecting samples from 1970s and 1980s TV shows, cartoons, and commercials, and he spins the material into a whirling psychedelic display that transplants the viewer to another era. Sonically, Unjust melds the ebb and flow of J-Dilla with retro synths and samples that are purely his own.”
