NEW RELEASE. Son of Sam. Come A Long Way feat. Masta Ace & Large Professor
Artist: Son of Sam
Title: Come A Long Way feat.
Masta Ace & Large Professor
Label: Tea Sea Records
From the forthcoming album 'Cinder Hill'

Son of Sam are a bunch of funk soul brothers living on hip-hop's live rail, and 'Cinder Hill' is their Everest. The rhythm section consists of John and Joe Sam, who have criss-crossed through various bands (including Leroy Hutson & Incognito), but are now at the forefront of a unit taking hip-hop from staircase to stage. Richard Halligan brings keys and sax, while Tom Caruana, producer to the cream of UK hip-hop and a prestigious remix opportunist whose credits include DITC, MF Doom, and most infamously, an initiation of
The Beatles into the Wu-Tang Clan, handles production.
 
Originally formed in around 2003, Son of Sam's playing of original hip-hop samples, taking inspiration from the goldmine left by David Axelrod, Galt MacDermot, The Meters and James Brown, lead to them supporting rap royalty such as KRS-One and Raekwon. "We wrote our own stuff but never recorded it properly or had any vocalists involved. In 2011 we booked into a shed and recorded over 30 beats in one day: drums, bass, keys and guitar. Then we called on various musicians to help us give it depth beyond the rhythm tracks, including harps, strings & brass."
 
Sending the beats out in stages to rhymers who Caruana states "had to have some common ground, linking from one MC to another", 'Cinder Hill' is a triumph of networking and hip-hop knowledge. From old skool essence keepers to underground big guns, J-Live, Sadat X, Guilty Simpson, Prince Po, Quelle Chris, John Robinson and many more have the album vibing at the lyricist lounge and getting heads craning from the front row.

The first act is a classic retrospective tale from two of hip-hop's grandest designers.
'Come a Long Way' has Masta Ace and Large Professor taking the long road travelled, a reassuring retrospective taking on the crossroads of life, giving thanks to the mundane and mythical, and cruising into the land of head nod thanks to Son of Sam's break-of-dawn blend of organs and boom bap.
