Cas One Vs. Figure - So Our Egos Don't Kill Us (LP)
Known individually throughout the independent music world for their ferocious talents in front of the mic and behind the boards, long-time collaborators Cas One (raps) and Figure (beats) have made their artistic union official and signed with Strange Famous Records for their first full-length group album, "So Our Egos Don't Kill Us," out on April 21, 2017!
These monsters of the Midwest hail from the miniature metropolis of Evansville, Indiana, USA -not the first place on the map that leaps to mind when considering incubators for cutting-edge compositions in the indie rap and EDM worlds. Despite lacking the benefit of big-city support systems, both Cas and Figure have managed to build cult-like followings and gain national notice for their individual endeavors over the years.
"So Our Egos Don't Kill Us" displays the masterful result of the meshed talents of the duo, melding their starkly individual styles into a complimentary blend of dense, kinetic sounds and bold, thoughtful wordplay.
On the first single, "Staying Gold", Cas casts legendary literary character Ponyboy Curtis of The Outsiders as one of the 4 Horseman of the Apocalypse, navigating the universal struggle of remaining true to one's self over Figure's dark and driving electronics. Soulful horn bursts pierce the atmosphere of 'The Devil & Jacob Snider", as Cas scribbles smoky confessions to the backdrop of a "pitch black parade where the world is on fire."
Cas and Figure are joined by an cadre of indie rap all-stars on their debut outing, including Strange Famous founder Sage Francis and his Epic Beard Men partner, B. Dolan. Doomtree emcee P.O.S. appears on "Never Stop Running", and hip hop legend Del The Funky Homosapien joins the fray on "Lone Wolves."
For those unfamiliar with the history of the pair: Cas One is best known for his stellar 2013 solo LP The Monster & The Wishing Well", and respected by peers and fans alike for his passionate live performances. Figure has built a devoted following worldwide with his signature brand of bass-heavy music, touring the festival circuit and drawing an enormous fan base that bridges the EDM and hip hop communities. He has released a popular multi-volume series of "Monsters" albums, which marry his love of the horror genre with his immense production skills, to massive critical acclaim.
