A-Plus & Aagee's new album Molly's Dirty Water is now available online! Stream and purchase the 11 track album on the links below:

LISTEN & DOWNLOAD: SOUNDCLOUD | BANDCAMP | ITUNES

Earmilk: "An instrumental blend of hip hop and dance, creating a soup of hip hop samples and electronic-styled synths. Considering the two genres' relatively tight knit history, the song itself sounds natural and raw, even when bringing a psychedelic element to the table."

The hip-hop veterans cite their experiences partying at EDM clubs as inspiration for this experimental new project, which fuses a hip-hop attitude with the sonic vocabulary of EDM production styles. The mix of instrumental-only tracks and tracks with lyrics makes for a diverse project with glitch-hop roots. Labeling their character “Molly” as a drug reference would be an oversimplification: A-Plus says of their concept, “…some songs are more about a cool girl named Molly, others about a not so cool girl named Molly.”

For nearly two decades, A-Plus has been honing his skills as producer, artist, and businessman as a founding member of Hieroglyphics and Souls Of Mischief. He and AAGEE joined forces as production teamCompound 7 to earn production credits on albums such as A-Plus' My Last Good Deed and Casual's Smash Rockwell LP. Their concept album, Pepper Spray, which features fellow Hiero member Del The Funky Homosapien, reimagined some of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' most epic tracks.

With the release of their new album, A-Plus & Aagee present the latest video to their project for the song "Blue Tear Drops". Directed by Justin Herman.

Souls of Mischief co-founder A-Plus and Compound 7 cohort AAGEE are proud to announce the release of their collaboration Molly’s Dirty WaterThe hip-hop veterans cite their experiences partying at EDM clubs as inspiration for this experimental new project, which fuses a hip-hop attitude with the sonic vocabulary of EDM production styles. The blend of instrumentals and tracks with lyrics furthers the album’s EDM aesthetic. Labeling their character “Molly” as a drug reference would be an oversimplification: A-Plus says of their concept, “…some songs are more about a cool girl named Molly, others about a not so cool girl named Molly.”

While A-Plus and AAGEE are no strangers to experimentation – the Oakland, CA based musicians’ last release was the Red Hot Chili Peppers-inspired release Pepper Spray - the new album Molly’s Dirty Water pushes the boundaries of hip-hop even further. A-Plus describes, “I was free to try different things out both lyrically and production-wise. Once again, stuff that wouldn’t fly in the Hiero paradigm. I enjoyed the freedom to experiment, because any hip-hop purist backlash I’d normally get was kind of removed from the gate, due to the experimental nature of the music and subject matter…”

Molly’s Dirty Water will be available on January 14th, 2014 and is available for preorder today at Hieroglyphics Imperiumhttp://bit.ly/1hiH9KS
