Kon Sci (of Minds One) – Felt Tip



Says Kon Sci,

“FeltTip” if just one of the many highly conceptual songs found on KON Sci’s “And Beyond”. Following the success of MindsOne’s Fall 2010 release of Soulspazm Records titled “Self Reliance”, which garnered praise from DJ Premier in his best of 2010 albums list, KON Sci returns with his full length debut solo release “And Beyond”. The North Carolina based MC/Instrumentalist by way of Washington DC, presents his listeners with a deeply personal journey delving into his interest in theoretical physics, his work in mental health and graduate school explorations, his recent marriage, and many of the other life experiences that have served to shape KON Sci’s current frame of reference in the world.

KON Sci (of MindsOne) – Dire Straits


KON Sci of MindsOne presents the first single, “Dire Straits”, off his upcoming winter release on Soulspazm Records titled “And Beyond”. Following the critically acclaimed release of “Self Reliance” with his North Carolina based crew MindsOne, KON Sci of Washington DC ventures into the solo realm with a gritty boom bap self produced song “Dire Straits”. The single pays homage and respect to the forefathers who deeply influenced him. KON Sci credits the Gang Starr Foundation with much attention to respective artists DJ Premier, Guru, M.O.P, Jeru The Damaja, and Group Home, as a driving force behind his involvement in beatmaking and MCing. “Dire Straits” presents a mood that served as the catalyst for KON Sci’s undying passion for the Hip Hop culture in the mid 1990s to the present day. To cap off the force of “Dire Straits”, KON Sci and Soulspazm have released the video for the single as well. Stay tuned for the release of “And Beyond” on Soulspazm Records this winter.
