People Under the Stairs returns to Om Records with the 7th artist album called “Carried Away”, slated to come out Tuesday October 13th. Fresh off major festival gigs at Coachella and Bonnaroo (“Best Performance. Period.” – SPIN MAGAZINE), the highly acclaimed duo, Fans of PUTS’ records know that unlike other hip hop / rap artists, there are no outside producers or of-the-moment guest emcees. People Under the Stairs are a completely true independent hip hop duo. Beats, rhymes, scratching, and chorus are all done by PUTS’ members Thes One and Double K themselves…..
Now over ten years and seven albums deep, People Under the Stairs have built a genre within hip hop of their own. Upbeat, crazy, balls to the wall and ridiculous “Carried Away” follows in true PUTS tradition. The new album was produced old school style in the same fashion as Rick Rubin (Def Jam Era) or Dust Brothers (Grand Royal, Pauls Boutique). Recorded entirely on reel to reel with tons of rock samples, distorted vocals, lots of cussing, drum machines, delays, yelling, the works. Wrap that all up with nods to A Tribe Called Quest (Double K does one hell of a Phife Dog), Beastie Boys, beer, and Luther Vandross and you’re guaranteed to get carried away!
ARE YOU A VIP? The 1st pressing of the physical release will be wrapped around a die cut O-card and a fold out board game and poster. Each CD also comes with a special VIP (Very Important Partier) drop card that will allow fans to acquire exclusive material at the upcoming People Under the Stairs World Tour kicking off in September. For those who are not able to attend a PUTS show, the VIP drop card will also be good for exclusive online unreleased material. All these items craft a certified premium physical package that no true fan can deny!
Be prepared for People Under the Stairs to bring back true hip hop like only they can do!
We are so happy to welcome them back to the family and are so hyped about he new album.
Mark your calendars…the fun comes back to hip hop, Tuesday October 13th.
Here’s a classic for you in the mean time.
