Surging Retro-Soul Movement Stings The Killer Bees

If you’re still trying to beat Interdependent Media’s game Super Finale, then here’s extra incentive for you to exercise those thumbs and try harder. For his new album, A Pipe Dream and A Promise (April 7th), Finale teamed up with Hieroglyphics emcee, Casual for “One Man Show” (A Rival 8 Bit Remix), available as a free download when you beat the Super Finale game (and from this email if you’re lazy!). It’s a Bach “Invention” meets synthesizer in this remix, as the independent melodies intersect to create a futuristic sound reminiscent of 80’s babies video games. The distinct music, however, does not take away from Casual’s rhyme, Black Milk’s production, nor Finale’s solid voice that declares “I’m a giant that sit at your doors / ask around I beat up a track.”

The Background:

Before making his entrance into hip-hop, Finale worked as an automotive engineer promising to one day follow his dream of becoming a rapper. Making the rounds at local Detroit open mics and emcee battles, Finale began to mingle with local talents like Guilty Simpson and One.Be.Lo. After emailing some joints back and forth with J Dilla, Finale finally met him backstage at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), where Dilla introduced him to Madlib, saying that he was one of the best in the game. “It was an honor and definitely a defining moment,” says Finale. After realizing his passion and talent for hip-hop, Finale decided to finally quit his day job, follow his true passion, and make music a full-time career. After a handful of Fat Beats released singles, an album released with European producer Spier 1200 as a part of The Rawkus 50, and numerous appearances on independent releases from Invincible, eLZhi and others, Finale’s official debut LP, A Pipe Dream & A Promise, will be released in stores and online on Aptil 7th via Interdependent Media.
