      It’s easy to overlook just another name, in the game oversaturated and flooded by emcees, crews and predictable marketing schemes. Even the most attentive ears - that would me mine - can miss or have a low tolerance when listening to yet another rap LP. Hailing from Milpitas, California, Encore’s no newcomer, already with a lengthy [cont.]

Congratulations on your first 12″ coming out off your new album and your tour with Heiro and Little Brother; I saw you guys when you came through here, it was a dope dope show. Thank you. For those of my guests that don’t know who you are do you want to go ahead and do [cont.]

Like some early ’90s 12″ that has more remixes than you can count, Encore brings mo’ flavor to this new 12″, offering three songs, three remixes plus two instrumentals. Dig through and I think the “Considadis (Unsung Heroes Remix)” for “Considadis” rises to the top. For one thing, the lyrical interplay between Encore and Grand The [cont.]

Encore’s “It’s Time (Ode To Breaking Atoms)” is the alpha and omega of this 12″ and the other artists sharing space might as well have recorded 3.5 minutes of static. I mean, does anyone really remember what the B-side of “The Choice Is Yours (Revisted)” was? Did anyone really care for the remix to “One [cont.]
