|San Diego emcee ODESSA KANE re-emerges with his eagerly awaited EP, CUETES & BALISONGS. Working exclusively with his brother, producer/emcee, Infinity Gauntlet aka Scatter Brain, this EP solely presents ODESSA KANE over that raw, gritty Infinity Gauntlet sound. This album speaks to the need to sharpen up on multiple levels. It amplifies the local/global struggles of the people, pays homage to roots and our hoods, while still maintaining that cold-killin Kane lyricism we all know.|
Hardcore witty lyrics provided by Odessa Kane over spine tingling beats produced by the very busy Infinity Gauntlet make this a dope EP for cruising the S.D. streets. The feel of Infinity Gauntlet's beats are seriously heavy, dark and trippy. One of my favorite tracks is ''Pancho Bonifacio''! The guitar is ominous, there is a little outer space sound to it, and the programmed drums pound. On the track Odessa says, ''I go beast mode!'' And ''If life's a game then guess who got the cheat code?'' This one is for the lost youth, justice and the truth!
CUETES & BALISONGS follows his 2003 solo project, Briefcase Narrative, and the collaborative album with Autopsy, Civil War (2005) (produced by Infinity Gauntlet), plus various singles released over the past 2 years.
