about

After four years of work, the debut EP by DJ E. Stiles is finally out. Produced by Mesmerize's founder MarsCat, this release is a tribute to the early hip-hop pioneers, the DJs and turntable artists that invented and pushed the scratch technique forward, and the long history of cult cinema and TV sampling in rap music.

Featuring artwork by the British experimentalist Chriddof, and built from obscure samples and alt. hip-hop influences, merged to create a sometimes dense but most times silly record, and featuring songs as old as 2012 and as young as September 2016, this is the debut by one of the weirdest projects in MarsCat's canon. We introduce you to "Vortex Season" by DJ E. Stiles.
