MMG Recommends Castle's "Ditch Effort"
Okay, we don't normally do this, but I caught myself listening to this project from Castle that he just released on his Bandcamp page and felt like I ought to tell some people about it. This isn't an MMG album, simply something we were listneing to that was dope. Ditch Effort is not a project of bangers, it is a project with a lot of introspective joints for laid back relaxation. So, if you're into checking out new independent artists, this one's worth your time.
A little background on how we came about hearing the project: Castle is the guy who did the graphic design and artwork for Has-Lo's "In Case I Don't Make It". So, when I heard he had created a new project, I went to listen. Turns out, he's a dope musician. The album was written and produced entirely by Castle. Here's what his Bandcamp page says about his new project:
""Ditch Effort" is a loose-concept album about me leaving planet Earth behind and venturing off into space. It's very existential, moody, and self-indulgent. I actually had no intention of releasing this album, but it didn't feel right bidding everyone farewell with another instrumental album.
This is the last solo project I'll be releasing for a while. After performing for almost 20 years (since I was five), I've grown tired of seeking a record deal or independent recognition. Giving up music is not my intention. I don't think I ever could. I can, however, give up the "grind."
I don't plan to leave the grind behind forever either, but I have no idea when I'll return to it. To those who've paid attention to me over the years, I appreciate your love and support."
I got the sense after reading the description that Castle just needed an audience with open ears. I know MMG fans are some real music connoisseurs, so I figured a lot of you might appreciate this one. If you have some time this weekend and dig homegrown, quality Hiphop, take a listen. Peace.
