01- ECID - Burn Everything by ECID published on 2013/03/01 02:22:54 +0000 At first glance most would think a skinny, blue-eyed hipster looking dude in a flannel with obnoxious Nike’s to match, would be in a post-electro indie-band. But this is the 90’s for the third time and one of rap’s most exciting new voices, ECID, is not your average newsstand heartthrob. In 2012, with the release of Werewolf Hologram, he saw his sound realized in a major scope. The album reached #20 on the College Music Journal’s Top 50 Hiphop Albums of 2012 list among many other accolades. It was an album fueled by life’s harsh kicks to the family jewels and a newly found passion for heat yoga which completely changed his creative DNA. ECID was shiny and new again. Embracing the chaos of his artistic evolution, 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year for Ecid. With a new studio album, Pheromone Heavy nearly finished, he is set to release a companion EP, Post Euphoria as a sneak peek of things to come. Realizing his best asset as an artist is himself, the songs are more vulnerable, yet more playful than ever. A hopeless-romantic at heart, Ecid has finally found a way to bring his true charm & unique creative quirks to the surface, making you root for him that much more. His new style is matched by sexier beats, marrying big synth lines with choppy samples. It is tailor-made for blasting out of a stolen Mazda louder than a blow horn attached to a stadium sized amplifier.
