Sapient, Slump CD
After 8 years defining the sound of Northwest Indie Hip Hop, Sapient has crafted Slump, a genre-defying masterwork written, arranged and performed by the rising producer/emcee. Slump takes his well-known sound in a fresh direction: arpeggiated beats contrast with melodic guitar and piano pop choruses, creating a lush texture for his singing voice to shine. The ethereal, lyrical sounds echo Sapient's childhood, reflected through the lens of his experience as a working artist and new father of a young family. Slump is an honest account, at times both hilarious and somber. Cultivating his creative vision to its full potential, Sapient is pushing his own boundaries and claiming place in our musical lexicon with Slump.
