Our homie Profisee's dope new release


'ZONING' // 'WHAT IT SEEMS' EP
PROFISEE X EPROM
Label: Cloak X Dagger
Vinyl X Digital

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


"On the run like I'm Logan......"

Cloak X Dagger are proud to present their first release on plastic and digital formats. You have 7 days to download your exclusive "Zoning//What it Seems" package before it terminates.
Enjoy.........


The Zoning E.P is a collaborative project envisioned by the Scotland's resident MC Profisee and San Francisco based producer Eprom. Both artists operate outside the conventions and rules of traditional hip hop and dance music culture, which is what makes the Zoning E.P all the more special. It's regional, global, progressive... and best of all, sounds ballistic on the club floor. Futurist beats collide with introspective vocals, bass heavy and zoned out to its core, taking their style to another dimension.

Prof is no stranger to the mic, over the years he has worked with the likes of Neil Landstrumm, Process Rebel, Yard Emcees, Hexstatic and forthcoming joints already bubbling with Poirier Sound.
Now is the time for Profisee to solidify himself as a solo artist.

The vinyl release will include an exclusive tribal reworking of "Zoning" from LuckyMe head honcho's The Blessings, plus reduxes of both tracks on the digital format from Vigilante, (Great Ezcape) possessed by Beethoven. Edinburgh's own hip hop impresario Nasty P and new artist RVLT.
The Zoning Ep is set to break the mould and cast off any stigma attached to regional UK emcees.

Check it out and let us know what you think... Profisee will be available for radio/press interviews and sessions. Please get intouch.

THE LIST MAGAZINE TOP TEN SCOTTISH ACTS

1212 IN THA TOP TEN ALONG WIT HUDSON MO,PROFISEE ETC. IN THE NEW LIST MAGAZINE

David Pollock selects ten of Scotland’s brightest hip hop talents

MC SOOM T
Combining fierce vocal ability with commercial versatility, fast-rapping Glaswegian Sumati Bhardwaj has opened for Basement Jaxx and Aphex Twin, and performed diverse styles such as reggae with Mungo’s Hi-Fi and folk alongside The Burns Unit.
www.myspace.com/mcsoomt

PROFISEE/CLOAK X DAGGER
Around since the days of the Scotland Yard MCs, Profisee is a solo artist and the former co-promoter of Edinburgh’s Volume dubstep and grime night. His partner Ema Johnson used to be involved there too and the pair now record together as Cloak X Dagger.
www.myspace.com/profisee

YOUNG FATHERS
Starting out as a boyband in their teens, the Edinburgh trio have grown up (sorta) and grabbed attention in NME, Front, Arena and of course nabbed a List cover for themselves. The commercial face of Scottish hip hop, they’re a crew of effortless party-starters.
www.myspace.com/youngfathers

CAPITOL 1212
A throwback to the good ol’ days when a rap single wasn’t a rap single without a massive string sample from an old soul track over the top, Edinburgh producers Fly-T and Professa Fresh make fine music. Also check out their DJ sets around the country and their debut single on Mungo’s Hi-Fi.
www.myspace.com/capital1212

TIGERSTYLE
Influenced as much by Dr Dre and Ice Cube as they are desi and bhangra sounds, Glaswegian brothers Raj and Pops are fixtures on the local scene and set to go further. Bobby Friction is a fan and they’re signed to the Panjabi MC-breaking Nachural label.
www.myspace.com/tigerstyleonline

NORTHERN XPOSURE
This isn’t a time for Sugababes and Girls Aloud, is it?’ asks Northern Xposure’s Eunice Olumide. ‘But that’s what the bourgeoisie want us to listen to. As long as we don’t think about reality while they make their money and ruin the economy and the economies of other poor countries suffering in the world.’
Not the kind of thing a Scots-Nigerian girl from a council estate in Edinburgh’s Sighthill should be concerning herself with, right? Wrong, of course. The only one of her peer group who went to university, Olumide would travel to London in her mid-teens and rapped on the same stages as a pre-fame Mike Skinner and Estelle. She’s toured the world since with her older brother Ibrahim and the Northern Exposure crew – a bunch of kids from the local area who help with performing, production and crewing. ‘This band isn’t a youth club,’ says Olumide, ‘though sometimes it feels like it’.
www.myspace.com/nrnxpo

HUDSON MOHAWKE & RUSTIE
Call it ‘aquacrunk’ if you like, but there’s more than a bit of hip hop in the squelchy, space-adventurer sound of the LuckyMe Collective’s most well-known, Warp-signed artists. Also see; Jay P, The Blessings, Dema, Nadsroic, Mr Copy, Éclair FiFi.
www.thisisluckyme.com

KYON AND DYEMS
Also on Crystal Wish, the elusive Kyon and Dyems post only childhood photos of themselves on MySpace, but make atmospheric electronic pop with a large amount of Scots-accented MCing going on.
www.myspace.com/kyonanddyems

HYDRO
The Glasgow-born, Bronx-raised MC does big, beefy, high-gloss jams and raised his profile previously having collaborated with N.O.R.E. and Busta Rhymes.
www.myspace.com/hydroglasgow

S-TYPE AND JAISU
Mates Bobby and Olly from Edinburgh work together and separately on a range of old-school productions with an electro edge, which are earning them work with artists like Prince Po and Sha Stimuli. Bobby’s older brother is in Found, which is a good eclecticism indicator.
