Illogic & Blockhead – “Capture The Sun” (Release)
A week and a half ago, Columbus’ Illogic and NY producer Blockhead released their collaborative Capture The Sun album. I’ve been meaning to post this since then, but just now got around to sharing it to you. Stream below, cop on iTunes, and check their special merchandise bundle here. Buy this album. Also, watch their mini-documentary in three sections below.
With collaborative history dating back to 2000, two established independent artists in Illogic and Blockhead are teaming up for their first full-length, Capture The Sun. The Columbus, Ohio emcee/poet and Manhattan artist/producer agreed to the project during a creative intersection in their solo careers: Illogic wanted to “step outside of himself” to focus more on storytelling and relaying the feelings of his present, as he pursues his dreams while serving as a father and husband; Blockhead, fresh off a string of instrumental releases that followed extensive work with Aesop Rock earlier in his career, wanted to once again collaborate with rappers. Through virtual sessions, Illogic picked through hundreds of Block beats, and began bringing the long-developed theme of Capture The Sun to words. Over 40 songs were recorded, with two free EP’s released prior to this album. Now, on April 16th, Illogic & Blockhead will release Capture The Sun, along with features from Slug (of Atmosphere), Blueprint, Abstract Rude, and more has just been released on TK via Man Bites Dog Records.
