blame it on JES7 June 11, 2017

It’s hard to imagine, but Souls Of Mischief‘s undisputed classic “93 Til Infinity” will turn 25 years old next year.

Earlier this month, Rolling Stone named the timeless song #93 (how fitting) on their 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time, dubbing it “a transporting blast of youthful talent,” while the song was heard blasting in a Gatorade commercial during Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

“While rumors abound about the crew working on a new Hieroglyphics album, for now they continue to bless their loyal following with new music and concepts as they & Elevation Nation present The Hierotrope Series; which will act as an outlet to present cataloged material and new releases,” reads a recent press statement promoting a new song from members First Light (Opio and Pep Love).

The Hierotrope Series will offer something truly unique, giving “its listeners/viewers a truly unique bonus value, adding an extra layer of visual stimuli to the beloved physical act of playing a record, as the collection of 7” 45 singles includes 2 sided on-record phonotropic artwork that comes to life, animating when viewed in a camera/phone in direct light (The more direct light the better – see below for details).”

With the series set to kick off next week, Opio and Pep Love “offer up two previously unreleased First Light tracks that were not included on [their] The Fallacy Fantasy album,” “Livin’ The Life” and “Fu2.”

Listen to the two tracks plus a preview of the upcoming “phonotropic artwork” 45″ single below.
