Faternal - One Step Ahead

Listening Notes:
Holy hell this is a surprising album. Who the hell are these kids from Satan Rosa, CA? I mean, the production is nice, tight, complex early-90-ish beats with post-Kanye sampling. The scratching is SUFUCKINGPERB! I have to say, this is on the buy list if I can find it. The only thing I wish is that they would have cut the track listing down to 10 songs. If they had the six standouts with four of the other solid joints they could have hit it big. As it is, they're going to stay underground for a while yet.

Check out Emry Jr.
Back again for tha 1st time. Now where was I, Oh yes, the sultry, sensual Ms. DONAH HUNTER. She's got the voice of an angel. (Fantasia watch yo back) Check out my girl SHAKTI. (the picture in particular) Living proof that queens don't just come in black and white. Ms. SHAKTI'S interesting because she spun her own culture into HIPHOP gold. At a time when the music of our culture has become fond of her heritage, she brings authenticity. And my personal little brother from another mother PSYCHOSIZ. The most formidable wordsmith that I have ever come across. Brilliant lyricism acompanied by a brash well-deserved swagger. You can't tell PSYCHOSIZ nothin' and why would you want to. NOTHIN BUT HEATT brings the best Oakland has to offer to Los Angeles. Westcoast rap is misrepresented without them on the roster. The name to remember NOTHIN BUT HEATT, got it, good. These beats have been blessed by God. RELIGION has a sound that everyone will want a piece of. Canada's premier producer with more talent then he knows what to do with, but he still remains humble, a sign of a spiritually concious artist in it for the right reasons. These cats got at me just a couple of days ago and I had to mention them. LOWER3RDS equal flawless. Hot spit with smokin' beats LOWER3RDS is the complete package. Now I've listened to a lot of rap and I never come across rap with a christian message much less one thats as hot as any without one. EMAD SAAD'S flow is one of a man on a mission to save soul through HIPHOP. WISE INTELLIGENT, Jersey's resident rap philosopher. Hard like "The Bricks" where he's from, WISE is a definite essential. EYEZNPOWA is a rapper gone supersaiyen.(nuff said) Anybody not willing to give white rappers their props will loose that opinion upon hearing FATERNAL. HIPHOP has existed log enough for anybody to say that they've grown up listening to it, but how many can say they live it. FATERNAL can make that boast. Go head twins. - Emry Jr.

One Step Ahead



This year we will be releasing our new full length album "ONE STEP AHEAD"
featuring Dj Kc on the cuts with Squeez and Sean on vocals. You can look for it at local record shops up and down the California west coast, Rasputin records and in Amoeba Music (both locations) or maybe you will run in to us on the street somewhere in the bay area!

Fraternal brothers Sean and Jason A.k.a.(Squeez), accompanied by the likes and record spinning talents of DJ KC are a product of the Bay Area underground scene and are an amazing sight to see in action. The groups collective past experience's are displayed through there music. Jason explains "I'm still a recovering alcoholic, drug addict who left a culinary career behind because rap music is the only thing I excel at". All three have a lot to reflect upon. Casey, who left a world renowned engineering firm to become a full time D.J., a goal realized after more than ten years. Sean has recovered miraculously from a debilitating accident to become the potent self taught producer of the group. Layered though out the twins captivating lyrics are traces of these and other experiences.

Faternal's goals in music and life have helped them to create an original sound that can be traced back to the roots of hip hop blended with an up-and-coming new sound that will immediately grab any listener's ear. They are self-produced, recorded, and engineered, and over-see every step in their projects. Their music's content is seen by most people as positive and motivational due to the fact that the brothers both do not drink, smoke or use drugs, and it is reflected in the message of their music, which will set them apart from any corner-pushin' independent artist.

Faternal, also known as "The Two Twins", have a distinguished original sound. Some say they are a brand new breed of emcees, backed by a phenomenal disk-jock, also known as "DJ KC". Faternal is a perfect blend of hip hop from their many motivational songs, to their down right offensive material. Faternal keeps every fan, listener of music, or even passer-by fully satisfied after every encounter. Whether they're on the street corner kickin' freestyles or you're at their home studio as a guest, even via the internet, people have been more than interested to see what this group has up their sleeves.

Faternal's main focus is to be heard and to be original. They have a firm base of listeners are want to reach out and expand their following by playing shows, radio guest appearances, CD music reviews, and distributing their music into more accessible areas for people to obtain. Go to WWW.MySpace.com/Faternal where you can catch their show calendar and a few of there latest jams. All additional materials will be provided upon request, such as video footage and full bios.
