Product Description

It's been roughly 2 decades since the Jigmastas first emerged in the late 90's. With a classic album, a classic EP, a worldwide fanbase and stacks of timeless singles under their previous imprint, Beyond Real, indie Hip Hop as it exists today would not be the same without their contributions. The duo consists of MC Kriminul aka Krim, one the most lethal mc's of his era and DJ/producer, DJ Spinna who arguably is the hardest working man in the industry. The immortal GURU of Gang Starr, spoke profoundly in 1998 on how he and DJ Premier employed "certain formulas and updated with the times". Those words of wisdom apply to any art form and the same can be said for the Jigmastas. Ironically, out of mutual respect and admiration, the group would collaborate with GURU in 2002 on their 12", "So What". The scene and business has morphed dramatically over the last decade and when both men focused on adapting to change, their output as a unit gradually slowed down leaving fans across the globe asking, "Who, what, where and why?" Rest assured, the Jigmastas are still intact. Though it is very common throughout history we see our favorite teams disassemble, these brothers cherish their musical union.

With a new album on the horizon, Krim and Spinna prepared 2 potent selections for their first release in over a decade. The lead single, "Magnetize" resumes, exactly where you remember these guys. At their finest, "Magnetize" is "JIG's" all the way from edge to center label. Kriminul is witty and righteously aggressive while DJ Spinna provides his signature yet futuristic soundscape. The track is fluently so magnetizing, it's infectious. True heads will certainly appreciate the raw amped boomin' boom bap for 2015. On the flip, "Resurge" is a B-side offering the perfect contrast. Identically strong as it's lead, "Resurge" shows maturity in the gentlemen. Full of punchlines, Kriminul's lyricism graces over everything from social and political issues to how seriously he takes his artistry. Spinna's track is a superb setting of melodic chords and groovy bass for the mc to reflect on. Released on black vinyl on Beyond Real Records, "Magnetize" B/W "Resurge" includes a full color jacket to compliment the 7". On the strength of this release, listeners can only crave more. According to DJ Spinna, there's a lot more in store, but for starters, he and Kriminul just want you to know, "We're BAAAAAAACK!!"
