Neak, Add-2, Sincerely Yours)FULL MIXTAPE:[/b] 1773 -Mixed Signals Vol.1, Hosed by Donwil (of Tanya Morgan)The first of five releases of 2010, the gentlemen of 1773[/b] emerge from the bone-chilling Chicago Winter having spent the past 5 months in full-on production mode. Featuring beatmaker talent from across the globe and a myriad of local Hip-Hop artists, their lead mixtape titled Mixed Signals Vol.1[/b] (release date 5/28/2010) began as a single release but the overwhelming response from guest MCs necessitated two installments.Typically, 1773 limits guest appearances to 2-3 per release, so for Mixed Signals the fellas decided it was time to up the ante. ?Chicago gets branded as ?Haterville? but on this release we aim to transcend any superficial boundaries created by that moniker? explains MC Just Jay. Essentially a musical experiment pulling from Chicago?s varied Hip-Hop scenes; as an end result, Mixed Signals Vol.1 is more than a mixtape but rather an all-city showcase.Hosted by Donwill (of Tanya Morgan), Volume 1 features include: Visual (Molemen/Community Service), Elevation (Fordafresh), Love Jones, MC Sick of Pseudo Slang (Fat Beats), Neak, Add-2, Sincerely Yours, Verbal Kent (Gravel), Phero, Itch13 (Superheroes of Sound), Cerebral Vortex (of Vertual Vertigo, MPM), Philip Morris, Awdazcate, and K-Sera. Certainly one of these names rings a bell, and if not consider this a wakeup call!As a bonus, 1773 has joined forces with Austrian beatmaker Trishes whose highly regarded edits of classic Soul songs by Bill Withers (?Make A Smile?) and Darondo (?Didn?t I?) are revisited here with MC?s Just J & Wisdm O.N.E. meshing almost preternaturally with the heartfelt lyrics and Trishes? boom-bap arrangements. Other guest beatmakers include: THIR13TEEN (South Africa), Arkiv (Australia), and the city-central Sound Prophets (Chicago).Download 1773?s Mixed Signals Vol. 1 for FREE here[/b] or via music.1773live.com.
