The recipe for a Split Works joint always begins with only the freshest, most delicious home-cooked beats. Throwing elements of funk, soul, electronica, drum and bass, and numerous other styles of music into the pot, the members of Split Works â€"Kinesis, Solace, and Stevie Barracudaâ€" are all producers in their own right. Consistently cooking up new flavors of hip hop. Continuously redefining their approach to the beat-making process. Split Works endeavors to ensure that only the finest tracks come out of the oven. Once a beat has been prepared, emcee Kinesis (LA) â€"with a flair for the complex and thought-provokingâ€" goes to work, infusing each beat with his own special blend of unprecedented lyrical ingenuity, whether delivered in English or Japanese. Brandishing the wheels of steel, Solace (Scotland) never fails to provide beat junkies with their fix, striking with precise, mind-bending scratch patterns that send heads reeling to the astral plane. Stevie Barracuda (London), at war with his own deranged psyche, exorcises his inner demons when his fingertips hit the keyboard, releasing seemingly limitless varieties of rhythm and melody. With Wide Open, Split Works embarks upon a quest to shatter preconceptions and encourage listeners to question established conventions.
