A killer flow from California’s Mighty Joe, paired with Ishu’s big beats and sample trickery, Way To Go is the first peek at the new album Hand Made, due for release in November, 2012.
Produced after they met in Melbourne and worked on the MoneyKat album release, the track discusses the topic of which direction to take in life, with conscious lyrics and driving hip hop beat.
An apt topic for the duo, who met when Mighty Joe was travelling from his native land of the USA, not long after Ishu’s debut LP A World In Progress which was written whilst travelling abroad. A World in Progress enjoyed support nationwide earning the producer a spot on various stages including the Dub Shack at Peat’s Ridge Festival, and the support slot for Joelistics Voyager tour. The main single Progress (feat. Mantra) was chosen as Catch of the Day on triple j’s ‘Mornings with Zan’ show.
The new album Hand Made will be available in November and features artists Mantra, Jeswon (Thundamentals), Candice Monique, One Sixth and Omar Musa. Equal parts dancefloor ready hip hop and downtempo electronic soul grooves, Hand Made’s production ranges from chopped sample based melodies to synth infused rhythms, drawing the listener in to an epic soundscape from start to finish.
