State Of The Artist dropped their new FREE EP today, Altered State. It’s a seven-track collection of anthemic electro-infused hip-hop. The title of the EP is appropriate as the album represents a shift in sound, away from the easy-going party rap of their debut LP, SeaCal, toward a moodier synth-heavy club aesthetic.

With all in-house production by group member Parker Joe, Altered State mostly rejects hip-hop’s traditional norms, so from that standpoint it doesn’t please the way SeaCal did. You can’t knock a group for growing, however, and there is plenty new to appreciate on AS.

SOTA will be heading out on tour with Mad Rad. Check the flyer below for your town:

You’ve never heard State Of The Artist (SOTA) quite like this before. The second leak from the group’s upcoming EP, Altered State (scheduled for a May 10 release), “Alive” finds Young TH, Hyphen8d and Parker Joe spitting rap-life lessons learned over heavily processed industrialized hip-hop. Shaprece Renee lends impassioned vocals on the anthemic hook. This is grand arena rap, more suited for venues like the Key than the Showbox.
