"GO" is five songs that will pique your artistic curiosity. Meaning "five" in Japanese, "GO" is Offwhyte's first official release in as many years, and on this digital EP he is paired with renowned Japanese beatsmith KK.
Co-released by Galapagos4 and KK's own label Lo-Vibes, the sound on "GO" reflects much of what KK has been doing within his own faction for the past several years. A fixture of the Tokyo music scene, KK aka The Khaosist has been trying to accomplish a bigger sound. On "GO", dubstep and glitch influences are present amongst KK's impeccable sample sequencing.
Themes on the EP shift from Offwhyte's immovable ideology and opinionated stubbornnes ("Divider") to current methods of communication via technology ("Mediums"). Offwhyte's usual themes of inner struggle and retaining individuality shine bright on all five tracks here, culminating on the EP's lead single, "Country of Islands", a tribute to his native homeland of the Philippines.
USアンダーグラウンドレーベル、シカゴのGalapagos4所属の天才MC、Offwhyte (オフホワイト）と、Lo-Vibes KKが、2008年リリース"in the Khaos '69"制作で邂逅。その後の交友から、ここにがっちりタッグを組んだ傑作EPが完成。どっぷりドープな楽曲から、エレクトロニック、ダブステップ、ベースサウンドなどを取り入れた多彩なビートに乗って、相変わらずスキルフルなオフホワイトが蝶のように舞います。必聴盤！
