BROTHERS STONEY - SAFE AS SOUND - coloured vinyl 7"
For the first time on vinyl!
25th Anniversary of Lazy Grey's 'SAFE AS SOUND' featuring Len-One.
Hangmad Productions proudly present "SAFE AS SOUND'' the 1998 Australian underground Hip Hop classic. Rescued from the High-Speed dubbing cassette decks at skateparks and backyard BBQs on its 25th Anniversary, and freshly mixed-down from the original tracking sessions, and re-mastered for vinyl and digital release 2023.
SAFE AS’ first featured on Blunted Stylus album “3” (cassette only) 1998,
Written by Lazy Grey and Len-One, the combination of their lyrical flow and broad Australian accents, combined with simplistic, witty rhymes, engrained countless catchphrases into the mind of the listener. Samples composed by Lazy Grey, tracking recorded and mixed at Jigzaw's Chop-Shop, Coopers Plains, Brisbane.
"No one can stop this rhyme-duo, from East to West…" Lazy Grey.
SAFE AS SOUND (Remix) appeared the same year on the Lazy Grey album 'ON TAP', feat' Len-One. Produced and pieced together by Blunted Stylus, solely composed of Australian Jazz/rock/funk samples, it takes the mood dynamics to a completely different soundscape.
"Now watch this unfold, as I break this down, the Australian crown, a distinctive sound…" Lazy Grey.
