OUTASIGHT TO RELEASE FIGURE 8 EP APRIL 26TH TITLE TRACK AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD TODAY

New York native Outasight follows up his acclaimed Never Say Never mixtape with a 5-song EP, Figure 8, slated for an April 26th release. Beginning Monday, April 25th, Outasight will be offering up the EP as a free download in exchange for an email address on his web properties and on April 26th, the EP will be for sale on at iTunes, Amazon and all over digital retailers. Figure 8 is a pop-tinged achievement of rap and R&B, vividly complimented by Outasight’s observant lyrics and laidback harmonies. The Outasight sound is informed by the boom-bap that provided the soundtrack to his youth and on each song OU demonstrates his mastery of the hook, using it to great affect by lacing the beat with simple, catchy lines that gradually take on complexity with each repeat listen, exemplified perfectly on the lead single, “Figure 8”.

The instrumental element of the EP reflects an appreciation for detailed production, densely layered with organs, guitars and percussion combined with the synths and heavy, mid-tempo drums that anchor the sound in hip-hop. The sonically rich canvases, supplied by Cook Classics, The Knox, and Matt Max and polished to a sheen by mixing engineer Chris Carmouche (Big Boi, Outkast), are the perfect backdrop for Outasight’s casually contemplative ruminations on the widely relatable, alternately rapped and sung.
