While rumors abound about the crew working on a new Hieroglyphics album, for now they continue to bless their loyal following with new music and concepts as they & Elevation Nation present 'The Hierotrope Series'; which will act as an outlet to present cataloged material & new releases.
Carrying on Hieroglyphics' tradition of innovation, landmark creative quality, & independent ideology, this series gives its listeners/viewers a truly unique bonus value, adding an extra layer of visual stimuli to the beloved physical act of playing a record, as the collection of 7" 45 singles includes 2 sided on-record phonotropic artwork that comes to life, animating when viewed in a camera/phone in direct light (The more direct light the better – see below for details). Marrying art, music, & technology, 'The Hierotrope Series' promises to be on-going treat for Hip-Hop heads, vinyl heads, & tech-heads alike. All design/animation of the series is created by Unjust via Elevation Nation, long-time Hieroglyphics collaborator.
Last week, Mass Appeal previewed 'The Hierotrope Series' by premiering two First Light (Opio & Pep Love) tracks "Livin' The Life" & "FU2" along with a Q&A that delved further into more of what Hiero has in store.
Today, Mass Appeal officially unveils the debut installment of 'The Hierotrope Series' with the lead-single, "Let It Rain" (b/w "WatchOuttt!!!") from Tajai & Unjust's 'Rap Noir' album which will be released on 7.13.2017; along with a Q&A from both members.
