Public Transit Recordings (PTR) drops yet another gem for the crates. After appearing on PTR classics like 'BB Girl' and 'Next Move', Voice steps into the limelight and unleashes her lyrical fury on her new 'Mediocre/LA Contradiction? EP. Listening to Voice drop her incisive rhymes on life and living will no doubt cause you to continually call for rewind. 'Mediocre', 'LA Contradiction' and 'Sign Where'' are all seeped in clever wordplay, thick beats, and have 'classic' stamped all over 'em. Voice gravitated towards her love of Hip Hop culture at an early age, studying the pioneers like Public Enemy, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, The Pharcyde, Eric B. & Rakim, MC Lyte, KRS-ONE and many more blasted beats and consciousness that crept into her headphones through the years. Inspired by them and more recent movers like Bahamadia, Big L, Aceyalone and Medusa, Voice strives to channel the passion, commentary, innovation and delivery that made them great into her own style and flow on the mic. On this 'Mediocre/LA Contradiction? EP, Voice uses her innovative style and razor sharp delivery to comment on the state of Hip Hop in 2005. On Mediocre, she takes aim at the less-than-stellar talent flooding the mainstream hip hop industry, catching wreck over the chopped up breakbeats of Canadian beat maestro Moonstarr. On L.A. Contradiction and Sign Where?, Voice collaborates with Murr (aka Mr. Murray of the Da Grassroots / LAL) to create two serious headnod inducers. On LA Contradiction she rhymes about the realities of living in Los Angeles, laying it out that its definitely NOT about the glitz and glamour. And Sign Where? posts a warning to all emcees planning on signing a major label deal to watch that fine print. Voice's combination of conscious lyrics and classic beats will make her a force to be reckoned with. This woman has flow, style, and wit for days. And this is only the beginning: watch out for her full-length album Gumbo, due out in late 2005 on her own label Featherperm Records in conjunction with PTR!'
"In the fine tradition of Bahamadia and Medusa, New Orleans' comes strong and clear over a jazzy mid-tempo beat by Moonstar?perfect for the summer barbecue jams and sunset parties"
Toph One, XLR8R
"Production by Da Grassroots and Moonstarr ensures the music is as creative as Voice?s lyrics."
Phil Phloe, XLR8R
