You Figure It Out... You Figure It Out... CD (2004)
CD $13.19 Buy It  Details
IsWhat?! albums Forsaking the usual hip-hop standbys (drum programming, samples, constant mic checks), the Cincinnati hip-hop trio Iswhat?! debuted with a challenging record -- beginning with the title but extending to the entire set. A complex, difficult album, You Figure It Out. . . . is much more musical than lyrical, a fiery fusion of Matthew Anderson's strong, dexterous work on upright bass; Jack Walker's fluid explosiveness on reeds; and the human beatboxing of Napoleon. Napoleon's speedy rapping, closer in effect to a live poetry slam than usual in hip-hop, is difficult to decipher but offers much to listeners willing to devote the time to message tracks like "Parachutes" and "Can't Get In." Anderson's prime influence comes out in a pair of late-period reworkings of Charles Mingus' material: "Fables of Faubus" and "Trust." Surprisingly, for a first record Iswhat?! was able to get some outstanding collaborations, including Cincinnati's ...
Life We Chose Life We Chose CD (2006)
CD $15.55 Buy It  Details
IsWhat?! music CDs Although Iswhat?! are technically a hip-hop group, their style, and really, their overall vibe and appeal are much more closely rooted to the bop and free jazz tradition than they are to the South Bronx. "A Mingus-type tune for Jurassic Monk blues," MC, producer, and beatboxer Napoleon rhymes in "Profiles" over a line from Coltrane's "Giant Steps" and featuring ...
Big Appetite Big Appetite CD (2010)
CD $13.85 Buy It  Details
IsWhat?! discography "Big Appetite" is more than a collection of delicious audio treats. It's a diary ... a chronicle of overconsumption ... real cautionary tales about lust, desire, greed and hunger. "Big Appetite" explores the possibility of what happens to many people when a basic human need is not met ... LOVE. It also poses the question ... "what's eating you?" ... getting to the root of decadent behavior. This release is as effective as a good dinner menu for several reasons: The songs offer a selection for your mental and physical well being ... (ie. they make you think and dance). The metaphors are real and ...
Things That Go Bump in the Dark Things That Go Bump in the Dark CD (2012)
CD $11.79 Buy It  Details
Vinyl Record $17.65 Buy It  Details
IsWhat?! songs Iswhat?! disregards categories to cultivate a polyvalent vision of music, a new blend of music beyond boundaries. The duo inherit the traditions of Great Black Music, like their forebears Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Stetsasonic, John Coltrane, The Last Poets, Doug E Fresh, Nina Simone, Gil Scott-Heron and Boogie Down Productions! It is moreover very clear, when one sees the eclectic but coherent list of guests on "Things That Go Bump in the Dark," all long time collaborators: on the drums, the mythic free drummer Hamid Drake (also heard with Herbie Hancock and Pharoah Sanders!); on the alto sax, the Dap-King Cocheme'a Gastelum (Sharon Jones, Amy Winehouse!); ...
