Erik L & 7even:Thirty - Rhyme Travelin. Swedish producer Erik L is back again with the fourth release on Soularp Records. This time in collaboration with Jackson, MS emcee 7even:Thirty. Erik L is known for his soulful and funk driven instrumental music, but also his work with the groups Favorite Flava and Supersci as well as artists like Frank n Dank and Cerebral Vortex to name a few. He plays a mixture of live instruments to attain his characteristic harmonic style. Since a young age 7even:Thirty, who also is a producer has worked diligently at developing his own sound, a sound he describes as a “futurefunkylectrosoulop soundscape for the ears and mind.” His first LP “Star”: The Seven Thirty Experience” has been cited an album that fans of good hip-hop music can spend some serious time enjoying and has been moving off of shelves, both physical and virtual, and out of the trunk of 7even:Thirty’s spaceship. The Rhyme Travelin EP features the Philadelphia emcee / producer Hezekiah on the track Future Flow along with guest appearances by Fulgeance, Paul Mac Innes and Stray. Out now on Soularp / Vintage Noize!

Thanks for sending this through, just had a quick listen to the album, and DEAM it's sounds real ill to me man. The track "Don't Push" it's too DOPE! - Jose, www.thewordisbond.com
The new release is simply raw excellence! We always love this brand of future beats and the combination with the awesome Sa Ra-esque vocals (especially on Time Travellin' - far and away our favourite track of the bunch) make these must play tracks!! Make Her Dance is also sure to get a play in the coming weeks - lovely vibe! - Black Athena Radio
Hey There. Fulgeance was sending me this. Soo strong by the way :) Love it. - Vaiper Vitalijus Despotin
yes sir, another soularp gem !!! really diggin' it !!! 5/5 !!! - mark (further in fusion).
Don't Push" is my favorite. Really like the p-funk synths and processed vocals. There's a phrasing that is perfect for Erik L's productions: Mad Skills. - With equal emphasis on mad and on skills. - Jonatan 'Ernesto' Bäckelie (Rakkaus Records)
Big UPS! - Illum Sphere (hyperdub)
Erik L’s dark and sinister, yet sleepy grooves overlaid with 7even’s flow is a treat to the ear. - Vanessa Warren (www.muphoricsounds.com
I like Fulgeance's remix which is both a good beat and fits the song. - ALex CHase (One Handed Music)
