Everything Test (Toni Smoke Remix) is the latest release to be dropped by Scotland based rapper Conscious Route and his producer True Note. The track was originally on the Lost Routes LP and this time the track gets a re-work by Toni Smoke which gives the track a Drum and Bass jump up feel.
Conscious Route is a rapper, MC, poet and singer-songwriter who was born in London before moving to Edinburgh over a decade ago. In 2020 he unleashed the collaborative - ‘Lost Routes’ album, alongside producer True Note which went on to receive a 4-star review in The Scotsman upon its release.
Conscious Route and True Note are back with the Proper Gander Remix by Konchis aka Jetsam. Delivering lyrics with precision, staccato flow and shotgun power Conscious Route again puts his skills, refined over years, to good use. Complementary high energy production gives a new feel to the original.
The Frontline remix by Edinburgh's Monosapiens (Rik and Si Mono) brings a junglistic vibe for an energetic dance track. Frontline is taken off the forthcoming Lost Routes: Flip Tape by Conscious Route and True Note. The Flip Tape has a release date of 20.10.2021 scheduled. Available via True Hold Records.
On this release, Conscious Route's abilities as an MC are matched by the rich production of True Note (aka Mert Pearson), as they delve into themes of things that lurk in darkness, both from a metaphorical and a literal perspective.
Edinburgh-based Conscious Route teams up with Paisley's own Kryptik to present his latest single 'Trojan' produced by legendary UK Hip Hop producer Forest DLG (aka Chemo/Telemachus) who serves up a slice of 5-star Boom Bap for Conscious Route and Kryptik to go back-to-back, bar-for-bar.
Not your typical Scottish MC. Conscious Route has a more varied background and frequently delivers a more Golden Era style. With True Note on the beats this one has a powerful up-tempo electronic feel. He got is latest long player 'Lost Routes' doing the pre-release rounds right now and Brothers is culled from it.
Following a brief hiatus, Edinburgh-based rapper, Conscious Route has joined forces with producer Tzusan for the new single, 'Father and Son'. Over an electronic synth vibrato Conscious Route delivers in a more spoken word style.
