Atlanta based MC, Obeah is throwing it back to the old school hip-hop days of two track A/B vinyl collections with his latest release, Way Up/Vibe Catcher (Mid 90’s), via Philos Records. Featuring lyrics by Obeah, beats from ATL producer Niles, artwork by Chuck D of Public Enemy, and lettering designed by E.Pesante, this is a one of a kind compilation piece from front to back.
“Both of these songs, written during the same period of time when Niles sent me a bunch of beats, are about different types of escapism. Way Up is more about escaping with a lover away from the daily grind, while Vibe Catcher is more about solitude and checking out from society for self reflection, self love, and healing,” Adam Venable, known as Obeah, described the tracks.
“[Obeah has] sharp, precise vocals, razor-like tone and enormous wit. He chops vocals like sushi," Chuck D said about working with Obeah. The pair have collaborated on many artistic endeavours.
The front artwork was originally created for Obeah by Chuck D with watercolor and marker. The back is hand drawn calligraphy by E. Pesante of Columbus. Arrangements have been produced on high quality 7” 45rpm vinyl records.
