Emerging out of the most unsuspecting location, Metabeats debut solo EP, ‘Metaphysical’ shot him firmly onto the UK scene, being hailed as the ‘Writers’ Top Hip-Hop LP of the Year’ by Plan B Magazine. He then went on to form Darkhouse Fam, on the Earnest Endeavours imprint, working with the likes of Om’Mas Keith of Sa-Ra and B.Bravo, furthering his reputation as a front runner in the generation of emerging UK producers.
After releasing a spate of singles that have found support in international radio and press alike, he set about concocting a second solo LP that would truly showcase the full spread of his talent and the wide musical styles that fall under the banner of hip-hop in 2013 and beyond.
To help take the musical journey, Meta has handpicked some of the US and UK’s most respected and creative emcees, each selected specifically for being masters of their own inimitable, ‘chamber’. From the likes of NY’s Action Bronson, DC’s Oddisee, to Detroit’s Marv Won, or the West Coast’s Zeroh each brings their own style to the table. With additional co-production from multi-instrumentalist and producer Ed Boogie, and a select list of singers, ‘Caviar Crackle’, should cement Metabeats as an exciting addition to the list of international hip-hop producers operating today.
