VESTIGE (Supastition x Stoupe)
Project title: The Inanimate Life
Produced by Stoupe
Release Date: Summer 2013
Supastition and Stoupe (formerly of Jedi Mind Tricks) have joined forces to create the music collective, VESTIGE, which will focus solely on releasing concept albums based around one common theme. The first project will be entitled 'The Inanimate Life' which documents the fictional life story of a man born to an unfit mother and how his life spirals out of control due to her actions, as well as his own mistakes. The story and lyrics were written by Supastition with Stoupe and his production team (Bad Tape) handling the music which meshes together hip hop, downtempo, and live instrumentation.
VESTIGE combines the renowned storytelling abilities of Supastition matched with the cinematic feel of Stoupeís production. The MC/producer duo have been crafting the concept album for the past year while agreeing not to publicly discuss it until its completion. Vestige: a trace of something that is disappearing or no longer exists.
Supastition is also in the studio working on an upcoming EP with German-based producer, Rik Marvel. 'The Guilt Trip EP' continues Supastitionís return to vintage sounding hip-hop with Rik Marvel handling all of the production duties. The EP will be released via Supastition's Bandcamp tentatively scheduled for July 2013.
