Burnside Album Details
Green Seed, The, Drapetomania CD
Drapetomania is brimming with lyrics of fury courtesy of emcees R-Tist and C.O.M.P.L.E.T., the stabbing attacks of DJ FX and Jeff C, and a sound world layered with textures and trunk-rattling beats. With producer Jeffrey Cain (Remy Zero), engineer Kyle Ginther, and mastering guru Paul Logus – R-tist’s beats hit dizzying new heights. You’d be forgiven for thinking that Drapetomania wasn’t the product of the Dirty South rather than the grit of J Dilla’s Detroit or otherworldly productions of Lex Records. Also a feast for eyes showcasing the artwork of EHQuestionmark – the design collective behind much of Lex’s output (Neon Neon, DOOM). Drapetomania contemplates bondage – artistic, romantic, etc. – but, ultimately, it’s a soundtrack to Freedom… And whatever comes next. The vinyl component contains a digital download card.
