Broken Vessel is the second video from U.G.’s new album, Portals. Again, you will not find a style similar to that of U.G. around. And neither will you find the production stylings of IDE. This project was molded and crafted for years…literally. The ear for perfection can be heard throughout the project. In the video description of this track, the words “mechanical” and “orchestra” are used. That sounds appropriate. This is a “mechanical orchestra” by U.G. and IDE leaving a unique stamp in 2016.
Well after waiting approximately three years, today was the day that U.G. (Cella Dwellas) and IDE released the magnum opus, Portals. I honestly thought this project was never going to drop. So today I am proud to spread the word on something amazing! Portals is an incredible endeavor in the crafting of boom-bap.
This video is just the tip of the iceberg for what you have in store when you cop this album. The lyrical diversity of U.G. and IDE’s sterling production make this a must have.
UG’s forthcoming album, Portals, is my White Whale. I have been waiting for it forever and for the longest time, I thought it was never going to drop. I thought it was just going to be shelved. But now we have proof of life with the IDE produced single, The Mystic. On this track you get to hear UG flip a one of a kind style over a production that actually caters to the word…”mystic”.
Even greater news is that we have a release date for the new album. It’s dropping on October 21st. Make sure you notate that on your calendar.
