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.
