MEGAKUT RECORDS WINTER 2015
GRAND INVINCIBLE: MENACE MODE
MENACE MODE is the third album from underground hip hop duo GRAND INVINCIBLE, DJ Eons One and MC Luke Sick. Released on cassette three years after their 2012 CD EP, Winter365. The album contains a notably mustier and grimmer sound than their previous efforts. Guest appearances, in the form of furious scratch attacks, came from Sneek, Netherlands’ DJ Sniper (on the song SOFT DUCKS) and Oroville, California’s Eddie Def (on the song PLAN A). The first single and video is YEGG. Other singles with videos to follow are: CODENAMES PT. II, JACKSON POLLOCK, SHOWDOWN (Interlude), BRAINS DECORATE, and PLAY MY TAPE.
Luke Sick, who shared the mic with numerous features on their previous EP, goes all bolo on this one similar in fashion to their first 2 LPs (ASK THE DUST and COLD HAND IN THE DICE GAME). Producer Eons composed all of the vinyl excavations and dusted drum patterning and handled the rest of the album’s cut-work himself. Due to the fusty nature of their record company Megakut’s “micro-release” credenda, some of GRAND INVINCIBLE’s previous work is now hard to find.

So I was in the white suite at the Kimber Modern Boutique hotel in Austin Texas. I had just dropped 3 tabs & was drinking Breaking Bud IPA. My gf at the time was walking around the outside enclosed back patio of the suite with only panties on & we blasted this until management came to the door to tell us to turn it down. I was like, "You call yourself the music capital of the world?" Still have the photos & I do recommend that suite to anyone with the cash but this album was on repeat. v i r g o v a n d a l
