Group: Grand Invincible
Release: Winter 365 b/w Dead the Situation 7″
Format: orange-vinyl, 45 rpm, limited to 300
West Bay hardcore rap’s grandmaster grimies, DJ Eons One and Luke Sick (Grand Invincible), have teamed with SF’s illest MCs (Agentstriknine, Eddie K, and Z-Man) to release the 7” Winter365 b/w Dead The Situation, coming Dec 2011/Jan 2012 on 625Thrash. A pre-cursor to their upcoming releases, Winter365 EP and Dust Cigar: The Gurple Tape (both due out in early 2012), the 7” is two songs of raw rhymes, heavy drums and gritty, cue-burn adorned samples with the b-side track featuring guest verses from the aforementioned artists.
Grand Invincible gained secret infamy and invisible acclaim from the cutty-est and most crucial critical heads with their 2009 debut self-release Ask the Dust as well as their 2010 release Cold Hand in the Dice Game thru Alex Pardee’s Zerofriends collective. Since then the two man crew has been record digging and rhyme-writing like a couple of late night hypes on a serious jag, diligently pursuing the hardcore hip-hop ethos to the best of their ability while also coveting a uniquely identifiable style. Spending much of their time in the thrifts, the dive bar live venues and the lab, Grand Invincible has fostered a productive collaborative relationship with other likeminded artists on the Bay Area DIY scene, and it seemed only fitting to bring it all together for this release.
The 2-track 7” will be pressed on orange-vinyl with original cover art by Michael A. Freeman and be available thru Ebullition distro (www.ebullition.com) in late Dec 2011. The first pressing is limited to 300, on virgin vinyl at 45 rpm. Immediately following this release, both these tracks will be available for digital download as part of the entire Winter365 EP thru a yet-to-be-named digital provider. Winter365 7” is just an appetizer for more than a couple main courses to be served up by GI throughout 2012.
