everyone had a great Christmas/New Year/Valentines/Pancake days since
the last blog post. I do apologise that it's taken around two months to
put something new up, but be ready for this update because it's kinda
Around this time one year ago, Bernard James
and I were locking horns in the midst of a friendly beat battle, which
flowered into what you might remember as The Great British Beat Off.
For around 12 consecutive weeks, we took an hour on a Wednesday to
create tracks in an hour time frame and have them judged by the
public, annoucing the winner of each battle by that weekend.
here's the clever bit, we were actually testing the water to see which
beats people would enjoy, so that we could form the foundation of a
brand new project on Preciptoman. 'The Honours' was born. A new
collaboration between Bernard James and myself, taking all the best
beats and binding them with some freshly baked lyricism. The album has
been in the works for around 11 months now, with 85% done and will
hopefully be wrapped up very shortly.
the meantime, The Honours took part in the RPM challenge. An
international contest, which focuses mainly on trying to break down
creative blocks, speed boost inspiration, and have a final product
in the form of an EP or album - all in one month. Every part is to be
done in the month, the writing, recording, mixing, artwork, etc. So,
whilst we had been eager to finish up our EP by the deadline (the end
of February/yesterday), illness and life got in the way, as per.
However, we will be putting it up for free download within the next
couple of weeks in the lead up to the album release which will (fingers
crossed) be soon after.
Proof that the EP is real and not just a hilarious hoax comes in the form of the EP artwork.
here it is, The Honours - Nothing for the Sake of it. Due out mid-March
and will be available for free download here at Preciptoman.
Until next time, (I promise it won't be as long as before).
