“Eternal”. Seamlessly weave ship hop instrumentals with live instrumentation and sampled records with string quartets, The Upside Eternal is the duo’s most confident and mature work to date, all while keeping the ethnic and percussive core that has branded their music since the beginning.
There are few groups that really capture the original artistry of hip-hop better than Alert312. The Chicago based duo are vets in CHH and have made some beautiful music throughout their career. Their tenure with Humble Beast was highly productive. Alert was able to create some visually stunning and beautifully artistic hip-hop unlike anything else in CHH. Now that their time with Humble Beast has come to an end, it is fair to question what to expect from Alert312 with there new record The Upside Eternal.
If you are a fan of Alert312, there is no need to worry, because their unique style of making music hasn’t changed a bit since setting off on their own venture. The analogue style Alert has used all throughout their career was on a near perfect display on The Upside Eternal. The analogue style I’m referring to is what the group calls their style of music. It essentially means that they are personally responsible for the sounds you hear on the record. It is a very hands on approach that isn’t something you hear a lot of artists doing. With this creative process of making music and Moral One’s talent and history on the drums, it’s no surprise that The Upside Eternal is heavy on drums. Read More Here
