Kanser's 6th full-length release drastically changes the formula from all their preceding work. Mesh - the rapper, producer, and much of the creative vision behind the groups previous records - is no longer with the southside Minneapolis trio. The remaining members, New MC, Unicus, & DJ Elusive, teamed up with some of the best producers around the Twin Cities to make their new sound shine brighter than ever before. While Mesh's past production was a little darker and colder, the new formula features a much warmer soulful soundscape - much of it being driven by guitar and other live instrumentation.

I must say I love the new formula, and it really made their mic work standout more to me. The whole package is simply more appealing. Big Jess (of the Unknown Prophets) & 84 Caprice handle most of the production, but there are also cuts from Most Wanted, DJ Absolute, Medium Zach (of Big Quarters), D-Mill, & Nate Ball. The 2nd cut "I Am Recognizin" is partially a remake of A Tribe Called Quest's "Steve Biko (Stir It Up)", featuring many uncredited guest rappers spitting Q-Tip's famous line "I am recognizing that the voice inside my head is urging me to be myself but never follow someone else" (in order: Unicus, New MC, Big Jess, N/A, Desdamona, N/A, Dessa, Brandon Allday, the Q-Tip's album verse). Other favorites include "Silent Treatment" featuring Sarah White of Traditional Methods, "No D In Erogenous" featuring Dessa of Doomtree (my absolute favorite cut), "Back Up", & "Peaces Of The Puzzle". Not a bad cut in the mix as far as I'm concerned.

If you're looking to get into Kanser, I'd pick up their 2008 release "Future Retro Legacy", but this one should easily be your second pick-up. Both albums have gotten a ridiculous amount of spins from me. Local legends or not - these guys make superb hip-hop music.
