An Acquiredtaste Required 72thesign UK Wide An Acquired Taste Required is the result of a long journey. This is 72thesign's first Album, 15 tracks that he feels set a personal standard. The album features Artist such as Battle Kat, Paul "apprentice" Lipsey(losttribe), Chucc Stone(Killuminatti), Excess Penwork, Mandy Dineley, Richie Mac(480), Eric "Genie" Walden (480) X the Detective, Nexus Beats, Heartless D(480) Drunkn Monk(ssorm), Addis D(480), Pete Dineley, Sativahh Beats. Two tracks on this album have been self produced by 72thesign and show his ability to expand and make tracks independently. 72thesign has a real passion for hip hop and is in every way and form a b-boy. You can hear the old school flows and retro links when he spits yet still has a modern appeal. His rhyme pattern alterntates and runs off on a tangent bringing you back with a bump. His vocabulary is extensive yet not pretencious with a twist of the rediculous. At times his rhymes are released against the grain of the track and cut a path of their own but still capture the timing of the beat, his style definately does not drone. His "f**k you" attitude on certain tracks can get right up in your face and the metaphors fly thick and fast. Tracks like going for the juggler are musical attack mode raps delivered over a head banging beat while broken jumps to other end of the scale. The album is well constructed and tracks like International Barz and Fuck up the Format definately get funky. 72thesign has received positive feedback on the album so far and is looking forward to starting a new project entitled "The Collabs" . Future projects currently underway include The 480 Collective demo album coming out in February 2011 entitled "no more no less". The Richie Mac Project should be ready for release around summer 2011. Eric "genie" walden will also be dropping his solo album. As part of the 480 mixtape I aim to put down a track with an up and coming MC called TANGENT.
