"Sporting what they have dubbed "garage rap", The Smoke Jumpers transform past glories into futuristic mutations...these Smoke Jumpers embody the DIY aesthetics of Californian group The Living Legends as they poetically trod on." - Austin Chronicle

"The Smoke Jumpers are clearly gunning for compelling beats and production. There are many fresh sounding approaches and genre moods...Utilizing a wide variety of musical beds and beats to support their blistering vocals." -

“Sach is a musical bomb with an emotional core.” A member of the Austin, TX based hip-hop collective “The Smoke Jumpers”, the artist releases his first solo effort, Stranger Things Have Happened. Nine tracks of up-tempo hip-hop infused with a hefty dose of social psychology and inner-reflection. An MC/Producer with more to talk about than cars, money, and guns, Sach waxes poetic over original, compelling beats that reflect a wide range of musical influences. Sach has taken a do-it-yourself, “garage-rap” approach to releasing his solo effort, with all tracks written, produced, and mixed by the artist himself. Tracks such as the highly-energetic, infectious “Opposable Thumbs” and the distorted, sing-song stylings of “DreamSickle” reflect the artist’s struggle to accept the world, and his self, for all their faults, while searching the clouds of smoke for the silver lining. Tracks like “5 Dollar Coffee” come across as off-the-cuff ramblings on the so-called negative catalysts of a society always at war with itself. A little anger, frustration, vision, humor, and hope all folded together into sound origami. With the self-proclaimed “random thoughts” style, a little bit of everything comes together on this refreshingly original release. Lyrical influences ranging from pioneers such as The D.O.C., Beastie Boys, and The Wu-Tang Clan, to modern so-called “emo-rappers” like Slug (Atmosphere) and Lupe Fiasco, while also having a musical kinship to rock acts like 311 and Linkin Park. A truly eclectic mix, Sach has created a sound purely his own. It’s easy to tell that Sach has some things on his mind that he knows others ponder as well. Sach once said, “I came to the fork in the road, and went straight.” It couldn’t be said much better. If one path led to “Popular Rap” and the other to “Underground Hip-Hop”, Sach seems to have decided that it would be just as easy to make a new path of his own…
