Editorial Reviews

After 8 years defining the sound of Northwest Indie Hip Hop, Sapient has crafted Slump, a genre-defying masterwork written, arranged and performed by the rising producer/emcee. Slump takes his well-known sound in a fresh direction: arpeggiated beats contrast with melodic guitar and piano pop choruses, creating a lush texture for his singing voice to shine. The ethereal, lyrical sounds echo Sapient's childhood, reflected through the lens of his experience as a working artist and new father of a young family. Slump is an honest account, at times both hilarious and somber. Cultivating his creative vision to its full potential, Sapient is pushing his own boundaries and claiming place in our musical lexicon with Slump.

9/10 Would be the score I would give Slump, and the best album released this year so far.

I'm not going to go into detail every song because I don't have the time but I have to say that this was one heck of an album. The overall sound is kind of a rich blend of hip-hop and indie that go hand in hand; it doesn't fit into any one of those categories however. This is a refreshing album to listen to and I'm going to have it on repeat for quite a while.

My biggest problem with this album is the inclusion of "The Dapper Mob" because I feel it was in there almost as a space filler. The song definitely sounds awkward compared to the rest of the album and as a a whole would be better without it. It was a good addition to Long Story Short EP, but it doesn't really have a place in Slump.

To say that it’s been three years since his last album seems a bit unfair. After the release of Barrels For Feathers in 2010 Sapient never stopped working. In 2011 he released his beat tape, Eaters, Vol. 1: Tusks!, then last year he released Gunwings, a redux of Barrels For Feathers. With that said, Slump is technically his first proper album since 2010.

To say I was amazed by Slump would be an understatement. For fans already familiar with Sape, Slump takes an entirely different direction than any of his albums thus far. To new fans, Slump is just the tip of the iceberg. In my opinion Slump is his most universal album so far, but if you don’t like it you can always check out his past work. Slump finds Sapient taking a detour from his Hip Hop roots, but the sounds present on here aren’t entirely new to longtime fans. Sape’s been doing songs like these since Sandpeople’s sophomore effort, All In Vain. The only difference is that Slump is an entire album based on this core sound.

The album starts off simple enough with “Slow Up”, but once you reach that thirty second mark you get hit with this extremely groovy baseline that sets the tone for the entire album. “It’s not supposed to be fair.” Says Sape on track three, “When”, and after listening to this album front to back numerous times I have to agree. As if this man’s Hip Hop catalog wasn’t consistent enough, he manages to expand his creative horizons while still making it fit within his overall collection. I think that’s what surprised me the most about Slump. Musically it may be different from his past work, but at the same time it feels like his entire career was leading up to this. Each album was a stepping stone to get to this point and that’s what makes listening to the album so enjoyable.

Great album. Rock music through the eyes of a hip-hop producer. Straight out of the Pacific Northwest and fresh. Sapient never disappoints.
