Rawbeartoe & Variex - Always Something [Album]

Introspective lyricists Rawbeartoe (Seattle, WA) & Variex (San Francisco, CA) approach hip-hop with an honest, self-aware perspective. Producer Variex sets the mood with dusty, jazz/soul-inspired instrumentals, over which the duo trades verses on existential misfortunes, social observations, and what it means to be human. At times cynical, other times sarcastic, Rawbeartoe & Variex are always passionate in using their craft to spark a makeshift light at the end of a dark tunnel. From harmonic melodies to double-time raps, the contrast between the emcees breathes a dynamic, no-gimmicks energy into mellow, gritty rhythms.
