Blu & Nottz - Gods in the Spirit, Titans in the Flesh (Album)
Emcee/Producer Duo Combine Previous Material for a Titanic Reissue
By: Coalmine Records
There is a care and attention to detail to this project that goes well beyond a standard reissue that clumps the previous projects together. GITS, TITF is a complete upgrade from the ground up with stunning new artwork by Dan Lish, remixed and remastered audio (handled by Carl Roe and D-Sane, respectively)
All of these fine touches really make the project a treasure for diehard fans, newcomers, and collectors alike. Blu personally wanted to restructure the tracklist because he believes it flows better than before, a sentiment that hits immediately when "Atlantis" kicks things off. And then there's the one-two punch of hearing "End Of The World" (feat. Rashad) and "Heaven on Earth" back to back, which reveals the true nuances of these songs.
"Being some of my greatest material to date and the strongest lyrical follow-up I've constructed since 'Below The Heavens,'" Blu says, "I feel more than honored to have both EPs officially commemorated as an LP to stand out amongst a band of classic full lengths produced by Nottz, like Asher Roth, Kardinal Offishall, Rapper Big Pooh and so on."
For Nottz, it's all about showcasing the hypothetical Hip-Hop beast dwelling beneath the surface of the previously released EPs. "'Gods in the Spirit' was the beginning—an eye opener to the madness that me and Blu were about to unleash," he says, "While 'Titans in the Flesh' unleashed the wrath."
"With both EPs now combined, it's a wrap—the kraken has officially been released with reckless abandon," Nottz adds.
Gods In The Spirit, Titans In The Flesh is due out April 13th, and will be available on digital, vinyl, CD and cassette via Coalmine Records.
