The balancing act of my life flows through multiple mediums of creation. This page, like my music or art, is an extension of the same creation and like most of my creative endeavors it must be spared some attention from time to time so another can grow. Of late I've struggled with writing while also feeling massive growth in production so new music is chugging along similar to that small engine that could. While swimming the seas of uncertainty and art multiple droplets of inspiration have hit my forehead recently, the most potently creative one imaged in the above photograph. 1,2. a brain child of Sacramento based Producer/MC Wrathmatics, comes as a 5 track EP featuring the title track 1,2 an Acapella, a Remix, and the Remix Instrumental. Linking with Sacramento native MANik tha MC the duo audibly paint a story of a young inspiring MC's first concert. From the anticipation of waiting in line to the tension of the room when the lights drop before the headliner, MANik takes you on a 360 of his younger self's experience. Layed over an erie flute like sample, a booming bass/kick combo and hi hat that pushes the MC along like a hot knife through butter, 1,2 delivers in all areas of correctness.
