Vast Aire - A Space Iliad EP
Today marks the release of Vast Aire's lates EP, A Space Iliad. The project is a collection of remixes and B-sides from the rapper's previous album, OX 2010: A Street Odyssey. Even though they weren't worthy enough to make the album, the tracks that make up A Space Iliad are all quality selections. Tracks like "Royal Purple Bag" are spacey, moody head-nodders with real ambiance, while "Monster (Adrenaline Mix) invades your ears with a dusty, old soul electric guitar and a menacing, distorted chorus. Those are just the EP's samplers. The other 8 tracks prove that Vaste Aire is still a force to be reckoned with in the world of hip-hop. He remains sharp, clever. and lyrically challenging.
