Dropping March, 2009
Anticon is proud to present the newest addition to the Themselves catalog, a 39-minute-long free album of sorts, theFREEhoudini. Featuring guest appearances from Buck 65, Aesop Rock, Busdriver, Lionesque, Slug of Atmosphere, D-Styles, DJ Baku, Pedestrian, Sole, Serengeti, and Yoni Wolf and Odd Nosdam as cLOUDDEAD (not to mention the whole entire mixtape being mixed down by Nosdam as well), theFREEhoudini serves as Doseone and Jel's return, posse record that never was, and contribution to the mixtape medium circuit so tied to hip hop's history.
To provide another incentive for signing up and downloading, Themselves will be giving away a one-of-a-kind piece of art created by Doseone, which serves as the original drawing from an inside panel of the limited deluxe CD version of theFREEhoudini's artwork - view it here.
This download will be hosted for free for 90 days. For more information regarding the limited and numbered deluxe CD version (which contains an additional 16 minutes of audio and guest appearances from Passage, Alias, and Fog's DJ Andrew), click here. It is now up for pre-order. theFREEhoudini deluxe version will also find it's way to digital retailers soon for a similar bargain/EP price.
Themselves, the Bay area duo of Doseone and Jel (both also key members of the group Subtle), have returned from a six year hiatus with a flurry of activities and releases planned for 2009. It's no mistake that this resurrection comes hot on the heels of the Anticon label's tenth anniversary - Themselves have long been one of the label's flagship groups.
First up for Themselves is a tour, including stops this week at SXSW and Coachella in April. In August 2009 Themselves will drop its third official full-length album, CrownsDown which Dose refers to as such - "CrownsDown is our statue - to rap as it reered us - and the arch and arrow, of what it is to be us, in a decade of music made and the temperature of these two thousands." It's also worth pointing out that theFREEhoudini mixtape and CrownsDown will be the 19th and 20th releases of Doseone's career, respectively.
