It began with two guys that didn’t know each other in 2004. One came to Los Angeles because of his
military service. The other came to pursue a dream, a career in the music industry. By chance their
paths crossed, one needed a place to stay the other had an open room in his rather empty apartment.
DJ Push Play was a young and naïve cat, with a penchant for underground Hip-Hop. He DJayed at
parties while attending Florida State University and started record collecting.
Solrac was denitely the more experienced of the two. He held down a Hip-Hop radio show at
Quinnipiac University. He also produced beats and MC’d. A few of his friends moved out to Los Angeles to experience a new way of life. Solrac led the way…
An instant connection formed. Solrac and DJ Push Play joined forces with Nick Classic to form Cipharadio, a free underground Hip-Hop podcast. That opened up opportunities for them with artists they knew and respected. It also exposed them to new underground Hip-Hop artists. Although they lived separately after 2005, they knew they had something special to contribute to the Hip-Hop community. In 2010 they moved back in together and started work on this project. DJ Z joined the team at that time.
Solrac Tracks, DJ Push Play and DJ Z reached out to the artists and provided them with beats. The artists featured on this album provided great lyrics and worked with us to share with you what we all know….
we need to bring the Golden Era back to Hip-Hop.
