Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Bayani" marks a creative and emotional leap forward for Blue Scholars. The four years since recording their first album has been marked by four years of war and uncertainty. People everywhere are looking for answers, growing tired of the banality and repetitiveness of the music and culture that currently dominates the airwaves. Similar to the wave of protest music that emerged during the Vietnam war, "Bayani" is a statement record stamped with the anger, depression and the slowly emerging hope of these uncertain times. Less sloganeering and more storytelling, Bayani showcases a more focused Geologic and a polished Sabzi coming into their own as a premier DJ-emcee duo. "The Distance" tells the story of a working-class immigrant, accompanied by a dark melodic soundscape that recalls a Philippine dance song. Geo also flexes his narrating skills on "Joe Metro," an ode to Seattle's lone form of public transportation and "50 Thousand Deep," recalling the 1999 "Battle in Seattle" at the historic WTO protests.

Review

"...easily one of the most poignant, important, and best albums ever to come from the Northwest." -- www.ThreeImaginaryGirls.com

Bayani stands as Blue Scholars' most impressive achievement. -- Charles Mudede, The Stranger

Sabzi has honed his production...with influences as far-flung as Marvin Gaye and Aphex Twin -- Biran Barr, The Seattle Weekly

This record is what hip-hop was made for...an example of the perfect album falling into the public's hands at the perfect time. -- www.ThreeImaginaryGirls.com
