7Heads inks deal with acclaimed MC/Producer Audessey (formerly of Mass Influence)

Brooklyn based independent label Seven Heads Recordings and its parent company Seven Heads Enterprises are proud to announce the signing of Audessey The Sound Sci to its stellar roster. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Audessey was one the chief producers and co-lyricist for the ground breaking Atlanta Hip Hop crew, Mass Influence. From 1997 until their separation in 2002 Mass released a slew of classic indie 12 inches including “All Out”, “Nighttime Grooves”, “The Science” and “Clown Syndrome.” In 2000, they were featured on MTV’s You Hear It First and then released their only album The Underground Science.

We have been trying to put a deal together to work with Tone [Audessey] for two years. He was the #1 MC I wanted to add to the roster,” says label head Wes Jackson. “It is a perfect fit for what we are trying to do over here. Musically, personally, professionally we are on the same page. One of the things I admire most is that he is self contained down there in Atlanta. Tone can do the beat, record his own vocals, mix and master all in his own studio. That’s a Hip Hop entrepreneur. This record is going to make some noise.”

“I’m really excited about signing on with Seven Heads writes Audessey, Wes Jackson has given me the opportunity to put out the music that we both respect and love. Together, we both definitely feel that we can spark the minds and ears of listeners in the hip hop in the years to come.”

Audessey’s “The Gusto” will be featured on the A Side of the upcoming single from the 7Heads R Better Than 1, volume 1, “No Edge Ups In South Africa.” The album, The X-Periment featuring fellow Atlanta beatmaker/DJ/MC Apple Jac will be in stores Feb 2004. The teaser single “Rhyme Tyme” will hit the streets in October.
