The brand new EP from NC's Omniscence featuring 6 new tracks + 4 remixes, all produced and mixed by me.  The vinyl comes in a full picture cover sleeve limited to 300 copies (200 x clear gold w/ black mix, 100 x clear with blue/red splatter.)  Also available on transparent orange cassette (limited to 50 copies) and digital formats.

K-Hill & Debonair P - Truck Jewels & Filters (Vinyl / CD / Digital)

I hooked up with another underrated North Carolina MC K-Hill (who appeared on Omniscence's last EP Sharp Objects) for a new EP project featuring 4 new tracks + 5 remixes, featuring guest appearances from Prince Po of Organized Konfusion and Omniscence and all production from me.  The vinyl comes in a full picture sleeve limited to 300 copies (150 x clear with black mix, 150 random coloured vinyl.)  Also available on CD and digital formats.

Omniscence - The Raw Factor 1996 LP (CD / Cassette / Digital)

Test Pressings

Very limited vinyl test pressings are available for both new records (10 copies of Omniscence and 5 copies of K-Hill.)  These test pressings are the only place to get this music on black vinyl, and are limited to 1 copy per customer.  Both test pressings come with a custom sticker.

There are a couple different bundles available to help you save a couple of dollars... Bundle options are limited, so get in quick!

All orders for physical products come with a free digital version - please check the Bigcartel Confirmation email for the download link.

No Pre-orders / No Bullsh!t - PLEASE READ

All the above items are already manufactured, so you can purchase now without the risk of waiting a long time for records to be pressed etc.  Just a couple of things I want to inform you of:

- Shipping commences in early January. This is so we can avoid shipping over the busy Xmas period, and also so that vinyl customers have the option to combine shipping with the new release dropping in the next couple of weeks from Heavy Jewelz Records.
- When your order is shipped, I will send you a confirmation email
- All international orders are marked as a gift with a low customs value
- If you have a question about your order, please email me at: gentlemansrelief@gmail.com - I aim to respond to all emails within 24 hours.

As always, thank you for your support.

[GRR017] Omniscence - The Raw Factor (1996) - CD / Tape / Digital

 



Originally scheduled for release way back in March 1996, The Raw Factor by North Carolina native Omniscence is one of the last of the unreleased mid-90’s albums to see the light of day. Despite being awarded The Source’s coveted ‘Hip Hop Quotable’ and dropping two well-received singles (’Amazin’ and ‘Touch Y’all’), record label politics meant the full-length Raw Factor album was never released and fans were left wondering what might have been.

More than eighteen years later, The Raw Factor is finally being released on CD, cassette and digital formats. Featuring punchline-driven lyrics from Omniscence delivered in his unmistakable cadence, and backed by head-nodding production from Fanatic, the album is a must-own for fans of 90’s hip hop. The 18-track long-player comes with liner notes about the recording of the album, and also includes all 4 songs from Omniscence’s 1993 random rap grail The Funky One Liner EP, available digitally for the first time.

Pre-Order the CD and Tape from the good people at UGHH: BUY HERE

In Europe, Pre-Order the CD and Tape from HHV: BUY HERE

Pre-Order the Digital release from: BUY DIGITAL HERE

All formats will be shipping / made available on November 11th.

We will also have some copies of the CD and tape available direct from GRR to coincide with our next vinyl release in November (so that you can combine shipping.)  Regardless of where you pick it up, many thanks for the support!

Debonair P - Commodore 64 Mixtape (Digital / CD)


Here's a mixtape I recorded in 2010 using music from the Commodore 64 8-bit computer, which was a mainstay in my household from 1988 until 1996/7 (long after the machine's official demise).  Some classics, some obscurities - not for all tastes but you might enjoy it.  I finally got around to uploading the mix (stream or download below) and you can also get it on CD in full quality for $6.
