In my previous post, I introduced you to Oh! The Beat Nomad and my collaboration with hip hop producer OlogistBBB. At the end, I was writing about further collaborations without more details since it was a bit too early. Now, it is official, I'm proud to show you the record cover artwork I did for Ologist, with the precious help of my good friend Herve from RVPB who did the overall design
Actually, it is not a solo album, rather a beat tape showcasing the instrumentals of a dozen underground hip hop producers from all over the US who joined Ologist, such as J Clyde also from the Better Beat Bureau who has worked with Pharoahe Monch, Ras Kass and Lord Finesse.
And when I talk about a beat tape, I mean a real tape. Don't worry, the "When Crate Creates" compilation will not only be released as a limited edition tape, but as a digital release as well, so no need to go worry about finding your good old boom box.
For all of you who want to have a bigger version of this artwork, you can also purchase a bundle with the tape and a color poster. All you have to do is go to the "When Crates Create" band camp page to have further info, listen to a preview of how dope it sounds and of course to purchase this great compilation.
As a bonus threat, here is a picture of the original black and white china ink drawing before being photoshopped with 90's style colors, to be in line with this hip hop compilation reminiscent of the golden age of 90's boom bap.
