New signings to First Word, ASM (A State Of Mind) are a globe-trotting hip hop crew of some distinction. Principally composed of multi-national lyricists Green-T and FP, as well as MPC-wizard Fade, the ASM vibe of rhyme-flipping nerdery, deep funk grooves, soulful horn-lines and neck-snapping boom-bap drums has gained them international fame. This lead single features two hip hop heavyweights on vocal duties as the boys rope in Stones Throw stalwart Wildchild and bonafide legend Sadat X to add their unmistakable flows to the ASM vibe. Root To The Fruit is a lilting reggae-tinged track perfect for the summer festival season. The former Lootpack MC is on great form on the track which is already becoming a firm favourite in ASMs live shows. On the flip, Certified Organic sees Brand Nubians finest dropping rhymes over an infectious horn-led hook. From these tracks its easy to see why ASM Have been compared to Ugly Duckling, A Tribe Called Quest & De La Soul. Both tunes are taken from their debut album Platypus Funk which also features contributions from DJ Vadim (BBE), Wax Tailor (L Aborotoire), kidkanevil (First Word), Bonobo (Ninja Tune) and Warrior Queen (The Bug).
