Underground Sounds

Geology is the next album by New Orleans based producer and multiinstrumentalist Ryan T aka Friendkerrek, and his second album for underground hip hop label Grilchy Party. Geology was created from the ground up without genre in mind, instead focusing on the very bedrock of the Friendkerrek sound. After some reflection, the toolkit took shape: knocking drums, heavy bass, warm synthesizers, and plenty of atmosphere were chosen as the primary building blocks. The resulting songs were largely a departure from the normally sample heavy production of kerrek's older records with faster tempos and more hand crafted melodies. Whereas previous Friendkerrek records fit comfortably into the "instrumental hip hop" genre, Geology spans this as well as many other labels: electro, funk, and house music were all big influences as well. The album's title comes from the scientific practice of the same name. The earth tells it's stories if we know where to look for them, just as there is much emotion and meaning to be found in an instrumental album if we pay attention. Grilchy Party has always appreciated varied, diverse, productions and instrumental albums. This one right here takes things up a notch as it introduces the label as a multifaceted outlet for talented artists who are not afraid to experiment and expand.
