NEW ALBUM: "2030" from g-do & xception

Two years since it's completion and countless light years traveled throughout the ether, 2030 is here and ready to serve it's purpose. Using an advanced technology, developed by Himalayan rocket yogis, G-DO & Xception traveled to the year 2030 in search of a funk, feeling, and future where hip hop is essential for moving bodies, uniting life, and lifting minds with every pulse. Vibing in far galaxies, recovering universal jewels of vibration and perspective, upon their return G-DO & Xception went to the lab and grew 2030.

Having observed the intense connection between cultures of the future, the far out, and now, G-DO used the newly discovered discunkture scale to compose a foundation of music that communicates across generations of soulful bounce with hard-hitting drums, spacey funk, and an eclectic palette of galactic sound samples recorded in the Andromeda galaxy. Understanding the language of the music, Xception penned it’s reflection for the conscious comprehension of the listeners. Consequently, his rhymes float through both complex and comfortable flows mirroring the unified diversity and wisdom of timelessness discovered on the journey to 2030.

Coming in at 14 tracks, 2030 is a journey like none other indeed. The album is completely produced by G-DO with features from Goal Music Group family Mark Nieuwenhuis on trumpet and Shishani bringing some vocals to backup Xception's total hold on the verses from top to bottom. Grab your ticket and come along for the ride, careful though, there's no coming back from here.

Music: New Album "Hermetic Chambers" from G-DO & Xception

A couple of days before the new Wu-Tang album dropped, G-DO was inspired to hit the lab and in two days sent Hermetic Chambers to Xception, at home from Amsterdam visiting Chicago for the holidays. Xception went to work immediately, writing the album from top to bottom in the following two weeks. The result is here for your listening pleasure. 

Cop the new album for name-your-price download over at G-DO & Xception's Bandcamp here or click on the album cover below. 

Audio: New Single "I Wish" from G-DO & Xception

"I Wish" is the first single from G-DO & Xception's new album 2030. "I Wish" initiates the listener through a burst of kicks keeping the pace, laced with an eerie bass and graginharp (created in 2022) to create a deep groove of movement and attention. Xception is right there from the first beat almost daring you to come along on the ride. Immediately, his flow hits as hard as the beat, but like the beat, falls into a brooding groove and carries through with a collage of 2030’s trip straight through the end of the track - when the transmutation actually begins. The track is available below, on the G-DO & Xception Bandcamp page, iTunes, and Spotify. Stay tuned here and to the duo's facebook page for more as we move closer to the release of 2030.
