"So there's been alot of confusion about what new projects are coming next from me. And I understand. I thought I'd break down the situation plain and simple. And this is the real. The next official project I'm dropping is called "The Reason". I have no exact release date on it, But I'm planning on releasing it sometime In January,Feburary. The project I have with MWill the Shogun will be released sometime next year April May. There is no official title for that project as of now,We are still doing a project however. Then will come another project called 'Fear Not Failure" which has no release date, or expected time of release. That's all for right now. I'm sorry if I confused anybody. "Lyrics to Go" is a track off of me & M Will's project due out sometime next year like I stated previously. I thought I'd just clear the air about everything."

Introducing the very talented and versatile "Kae Sun"
"The most captivating quality of up and coming artist Kae Sun is not the ease with which he switches from singing to rapping or the fact that his records are influenced by a variety of musical styles. But rather, it is his distinctively heart felt vocal delivery coupled with his ability to communicate passionately through poetic lyrics."

High Power Moves, unlike most pieces of work don’t fit a particular mold. Neither do we find that when we look into the context of the songs individually. An average artist might feel like a complete project would consist of your basic formula hype song, party single, conscious track reminiscent flashback and repeat. Hawdwerk and Jansport J come out of left field with tracks like She Smiles that sing tales of an era that was probably before your time. The ability of create projects that eclipse just one time period and region gets HPM a 9 for originality.
Many times when we talk about delivery, we talk about the ability of the rapper. However in this case, its actually Jansport J who delivers. The soul of these beats gives the album a sound beyond just hip-hop. Samples prove as the power player here as the crate digging of Jansport seems to add a symphonic sound to the whole album, every sample works well with Hawdwerk’s delivery and rhyme style. Hawdwerk’s bars are definitely what brings the Album together with some vivid storylines and some insane verses that will make you stop the music and make you rewind it until you can put it onto you facebook profile as one of your favorite quotes.
Conceptually this album is exactly what you wouldn’t expect from a FREE album. It explores the deeper and more realistic thoughts of the common person, without hitting any cliché’s or stereotypes. The ability to be sympathetic without becoming an absolute martyr or getting cocky/confident without falling into the “swag” movement is important. This along with an almost random order of tracks for this album allows topics to change at anytime. Life is, as the album is, unexpected, unrelenting and most people in their right mind will enjoy it.
You can probably get by now that this album is crazy. You can tell exactly why the album took so long to make while listening to it. So many things seem as if they were carefully thought out and planned for their audience to enjoy, which is exactly how hip hop was meant to be. HPM draws a definitive line in the sand as to what an album is suppose to song like, so all you artist who are working on your free debut album, try to stack up. A job well done by Hawdwerk & Jansport J.

"First off, on behalf of Hawdwerk and myself, we wanna say THANK YOU to everybody who has supported the singles and the anticipation of this project. Your energy gave us energy to plug through and put together a solid album. So without further adieu, here you go"
"Feel free to tell as many people as possible about this project! Also, as you may be aware, putting together an independent album costs alot of $$$. For those who want to support this project in monetary terms and allow us to continue to do what we do, feel free to purchase a digital copy of the album on our bandcamp site HawdwerkJansportJ.bandcamp.com"

Yo, sorry for the second consecutive post in row that does not have music for your ears. But this deserved its own post.As I am going through my 300+ emails, I realized I got emails from people (not even rappers) that emailed me asking if everything was OK with me. These are people that I don't even know personally, I just wanna give you guys a special shout out and THANK YOU for even caring enough to email me. That really means A LOT, it means my job as a blogger is actually coming through for y'all and I am not just one of those blogs that get clicked once and ignored the next day. Thanks man, glad y'all are able to enjoy the stuff I post. Quick shout outs to HollywoodFLOSS, Tyler at AboveGround Magazine, and ThreatZ. Damn, wish I had a brother named Ray-ray, so I could shout him out too. Holla!

Whats that picture got to do with anything? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Its pretty cool though, right? I am still alive, and I would like to apologize to the many fans of Sound Society (you know how bloggers exaggerate), and my co-workers redline, Natac and ThreatZ. I just started college this year, and weeeeeell....well we all heard the Asher Roth song (Nevermind the academics haha, because who actually does work in college, am I right or am I right?). BUT enough about me...I will be posting a lot more often now, and for artists reading this i got something for you too. If you notice to the right side of the blog -----> you will notice a soundclound music submission box. This is a lot easier to submit music too, but if you still prefer email you can do that too. (Don't worry, I will be checking it daily)*. I think that's it for now, even you have any questions or concerns please feel free to comment or email us. All the contact information is over there on the right ----->
*For all the people that did email, I will respond ASAP. Don't expect it anytime soon (I don't like promising [insert number] of days because things happen). Thanks to all the people that emailed and asked if everything was cool with I appreciate that. But in the mean time and between time check me out in the future posting that sonic heroin for your ears.**
**Last thing. FOLLOW SOUND SOCIETY ON TWITTER. FOLLOW FOLLOW FOLLOW!!!!! FOLLOW!!!!!!
