Hy-Definition "The Voices"

13 Sept 2012

Hip-Hop duo, Hy-Definition (Producer SoulChef and Lyricist K.Wiz), present their latest project "The Voices".

The Voices pays homage to five distinguished artists who have inspired Hy-Definition's sound. The music of Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, David Ruffin, Michael Jackson, and Selena represent the dichotomy between talent and tragedy. Each Song on the EP is sampled from these 5 legends. These artists were all taken from us before their time and all we have left are their voices their recordings.

The Voices is produced entirely by SoulChef who lays down the foundation with Soul Sampled, boom bap beats. While K.wiz expresses through lyrical wizardry about family, life, self reflection, music and future hopes. Featurings by Nieve, Noah King, Trace Blam and Marie add the finishing touches by adding a bit of contrast to K.wiz's Vocals.

We will all leave this earth one day, yet the captured memories will remain forever. Remember The Voices.
