After a decade behind the boards, maticulous breaks his silence with a carefully arranged, fully-formed EP that resonates with the time-honored tomes of New York's underground. Seamlessly interweaving the thump and swagger of DJ Premier's hardest post-Gangstarr productions with Pete Rock' easygoing, blissed-out jazz, maticulous's pristine beatcraft is elevated even higher by instantly classic contributions from RA the Rugged Man, Ruste Juxx, and Rock of Heltah Skeltah. maticulous builds on the tradition of New York legends to deliver a melodic, intrinsically old-school EP that reaches beyond boom-bap to achieve a sound wholly his own and tastefully progressive.
"maticulous represents a dope new generation of beatmakers that respects the culture," Duck Down's Marco Polo says, "And he's definitely someone you should check for."
"maticulous proves to be another emerging force within the indie Hip Hop scene. Head nodding tracks and a great selection of spitters for that authentic sound. Definitely will be getting some play on my show."
