'A crew of Adelaide's best kept hip-hop secrets have recorded a concept album that’ll iron out your creases.'
'IRON EMPIRE presents THE COUNT, a collaborative album by emcee Flodysseus aka. Dr Dictionary and producer The Zues, from the heartland of Australian hip hop.
'THE COUNT is a word journey unfolding through numbersome experiences, ageing like a fine vinegar, an epic audio nexus forming a passage through time and space, to Rhymin' Island and back.'
'With Flodysseus, master of the riddle-rap at the mic, this smooth beat puzzle will truly inspire you. With dynamic attack, he explores numbers as symbols of mystery, history and comedy in choose-your-own adventure styles. As a vocussionist, Flodysseus cooks a mean story to perfection.'
'A deeper listen to THE COUNT reveals a puzzle meal for your mind. As a producer, The Zues is a pre-heated beat oven baking up the loops. These tunes will have your hungry ears filled with the delicious rhythm of wisdom. And best of all... you'll get the pie in the end.'
recorded, produced and mixed by The Zues and co-produced by Flodysseus at Cinema4 (2013-2014)
mastered by Neville Clark at Disk-Edits (2014)
