after well over a year in the making –
we are ready to present the world to one of my favorite groups,
& their official debut album, We Get It In True.
Well… not quite yet -
but it IS coming!
& today, we let you in on the first sneak peak of the project.
Since combining forces in early 2010,
TxE (pronounced “T And E”) –
made up of MC’s Tope and Epp,
& producer, G_Force (AKA Calvin Valentine) -
all three solo acts in their own right,
have come together to form
one of the most well-rounded groups hip-hop has to offer right now.
& through relentless live performances, collaborations & self-released projects,
they’ve quickly worked their way to the forefront of the burgeoning PRTLND music scene -
& with this first full-length project from the group,
TxE hope to take that worldwide as well.
Shot last October (hence the Halloween get-ups in the live show),
by wiz kid, Paulius Kontijevas,
this EPK, “Day In The Life Of TxE,”
is meant to serve as an informal (re-)introduction to the group -
showing the true friendship & casual camaraderie of its members in their everyday life,
& how that translated into the studio
when it came time to record the album.
Included in this Day is the group recording the track,
“Nothing New” -
one of the newer songs on WGIIT,
which found G_ pulling out some makeshift bucket drums
to give the track a more live feel,
which then inspired Epp & Tope
to write some of their more personal verses to date.
You can watch the full EPK below -
& look out for much more from TxE & WGIIT coming very soon,
including leaks, music videos & finally… the full album for free download.
