Critical Praise for Pseudo Slang:

"Pseudo Slang make the thinking fan's kind of hip-hop." - Chicago Sun Times

“When I first heard Pseudo Slang 'Yes Doubt' I was floored, and it became my #1 Song of 2008. I’ve been doing radio for 18 years but few songs ever gave me chills, 'Yes Doubt' was one of them. I can't wait for the album." - DJ 3rd Rail, Chicago DJ and Radio Legend, 89.3FM WNUR, DJ3RDRAIL.COM

The Song:

Buffalo-based hip-hop duo Pseudo Slang return with the new track, "Out A Touch," from their recently released album, We'll Keep Looking, and from the moment the beat drops, this track is recognizably the work of Tone Atlas and Emcee Sick. The upright bass sample and light-hearted piano lick float along, and mesh well with the scribbles of a scratching DJ and a dirty drumbeat. Emcee Sick enters with his quintessential jazzy-soulful flow, speaking pointedly on the life of an independent artist and the challenges that come with it. Emcee Sick raps, "Now sleep is coveted / I feel like I'm out of touch with it / So I chill hard with beats / My peeps are loving it / But it's still not the same." Sick and Tone know the music life is taking a toll on them, but tracks like this are their reward. Look for Pseudo Slang's We'll Keep Looking, available now on Fat Beats Records.

We'll Keep Looking is available everywhere now via Fat Beats Records. Please post buy links!

The Background:

Pseudo Slang is a hip-hop duo from the Buffalo, NY music scene. Emcee Sick of the Xtracts of Slang and Tone Atlas of the Pseudo Intellectuals teamed up about a decade ago to form Pseudo Slang - a side project that took on a career of its own. After their debut release, The Catalogue (a compilation of tracks PS laid down from 1999 to 2004), Pseudo Slang switched to full time. After being quickly signed to stalwart hip-hop label Fat Beats Records, Pseudo Slang released the single "Broke and Copasetic" in 2006. National and international tours followed, and the build towards their first complete studio release as a duo is almost at its apex: We'll Keep Looking is available now via Fat Beats Records.
