'always something' by rawbeartoe & variex OUT NOW - 7/27/16
Lyricists Rawbeartoe (Seattle, WA) & Variex (San Francisco, CA) approach hip-hop with an introspective, honest perspective. Producer Variex sets the mood with dusty, jazz/soul-inspired instrumentals, over which the duo trades verses on existential misfortunes, social observations, and what it means to be human. At times cynical, other times sarcastic, Rawbeartoe & Variex are always passionate in using their craft to spark a makeshift light at the end of a dark tunnel. From harmonic melodies to rapid-fire raps, the contrast between the emcees breathes a dynamic, no-gimmicks energy into mellow, gritty rhythms. Their new album, "Always Something," is out now on Variex's new label, Red Tempo Records, and available through all major digital outlets.
