Powercut Productions Presents:
Steg G - Vulgar Eloquence - LP (PCP018)
Steg G and Loki join forces for this cerbral journey through Glasgow and the inner thoughts of Mister loki.
STEG G has been a very busy man. In-between his regular releases and live performances with his partner in rhyme the FREESTYLE MASTER, and his remixes DJ sets and radio broadcasts the Scottish Hip Hop producer has somehow found the time to hit the studio with some of the finest emcees on planet earth and dropped a gem on us with his LP Vulgar Eloquence, and with the cream of the US and UK talent on board things are about to get hectic.
VULGAR ELOQUENCE opens up nicely with the title track exploring how Hip-hop has mutated from its original roots for both the positive and the negative with non other than JUICE CREW legend CRAIG G, who was responsible for penning most of the battle rhymes in the motion picture 8-MILE.
Next up the we get treated to a stellar performance from DIDDYS ghost writer, and member of Hip Hop super-group SLAUGHTERHOUSE; ROYCE DA 5'9 who features on FIRE, a controversial trackt hat finds Steg G Vulgar Eloquence Royce spitting venom at the direction of other emcees, most notably LIL WAYNE!
Over in the UK the heat is maintained as Steg chooses to hook up with some of the heavyweight (no pun intended) off the dome freestyle talents there is, step up ; BIG STIG aka STIG of the DUMP the BEER & RAP legend who is Known for destroying MCs at JUMP OFF events and battles and tearing up stages across the world, next we got THE SHOW which features Scotlands own battle champ RESPEK BA who drops this energetic call to arms, and our very own battle champ the FREESTYLE MASTER who holds it down as always on on the multi dimentional and revolutionary T.I.M.E.
Things change direction a little when Steg hooks up with local pop heroes A BAND CALLED QUINN for the GLIMMER SONG and delivers a jaunty slice of dark electro pop which compliments Louise's provocative vocal., but takes them to a zone where they find new meaning and resonance with Steg G's grimey synth based production.
With highly respected emcee SPEE '69 joining in and dropping the contagious READY FOR ACTION, and Edinburgh emcee MADHAT on board for Monster Vulgar Eloquence is a non stop joy ride through both gritty and beautiful urban soundscape showcasing Stegs divercity and range as a producer and crafter of the groove.
Finaly it is time to pass the mics to EASTERN PHILOSOPHY a spoken word group from New Jersey who Steg hooked up with in New York , their offering, the thought provoking and uplifting GHETTO DNA aims to helps us to define who we really are with and continues with the revolution flavour that runs throught the album.

Rick Fulton - Daily Record:
"SCOTS rap label Powercut Productions comes of age with their 18th release - and how far they've travelled.
Master hip hop producer Steg G has roped in some big, big players. The title track and opening song is rapped by none other than MC Craig G, the man who penned many of Eminem's battle rhymes in 8 Mile. So it's a massive bit of respect for Steg to have him rap: "This is what hip hop is supposed to sound like" to his beats. Second tune Fire has Diddy's ghost writer Royce Da 5'9" spitting venom against Lil Wayne. Again this is a rap record for the world and Scottish rap has really arrived. Steg's right hand man Freestyle Master, Respek BA and the darkest rapper in Scotland, Madhat, keep our heads held higher. A personal favourite is the Acid hip hop of Spee 69's Ready For Action and Steg shows it's not just about hip hop with a poppy remix of A Band Called Quinn's Glimmer Song. The album is out on November 5. See their website www.powercutproductions.com
