NEW RELEASE. Son of Sam. 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 handles production.
 
Producer to the cream of UK hip-hop (collaborative albums with Wordsmith, Dizraeli and Dr Syntax), and affectionately described as a boutique bootlegger due to the quality of his prestigious remixes, Caruana's 'Rough Versions' series has taken on 
Large Professor, Brand Nubian and DOOM. In the grand scheme of 'Grey Album', under-the-counter infamy, his prodigious piecing together of polar opposites lead to a Wu-Tang/Beatles soundclash of unerring precision. Even if record execs were less than enamoured with Caruana's opportunism, Shaolin aficionadas dug it, encouraging another inspired Wu-Tang reimagination caught in a Jimi Hendrix-inspired purple haze. 

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", means 'Cinder Hill' is a triumph of networking and hip-hop knowledge. From old skool essence keepers to underground big guns, J-Live,
Sadat X, Masta Ace, Guilty Simpson, Prince Po, Large Professor, Quelle Chris, John Robinson and many more have the album vibing at the lyricist lounge and getting heads craning from the front row.

Smoothing out the spotlight while rhymes and beats glow with intuition, 'Cinder Hill' comes primed for a live environment while souping up the snugness of your headphones.
