The Random Humans Release New Single ft. Sunspot Jonz (The Living Legends)
Set to release their debut LP, “Over Your Head,” later this Fall 2010. The Random Humans are giving fans a sneak peak of what’s to come by unleashing their first single, “Where Did You Come From” ft. Sunspot Jonz of The Living Legends.
“It was really great to work with a rapper like Sunspot Jonz for this single, his verses are just incredible. We first met him while touring with The Living Legends last April on their West coast Canadian tour. After hanging with him for those few weeks on the road it just seemed meant to be.” comments RH’s Deception.
Showcasing a lifetime of musical influences and styles, “Over Your Head” is sure to shake up things up in Canadian hip-hop and beyond. The Vancouver hip-hop duo, comprised of Deception, a lyrical master in his own right, and beatsmith Bear, look forward to unveiling their debut full-length, comprised of fresh and unique collaborations including Vancouver’s scratch master D-Rec (POS Crew), guitarist and bassist duo Jason Morley and Jim Bennett who have been performing together for over the last decade, and were both brought forward by “Over Your Head” producer Rob Shallcross, a Juno Award winning engineer.
Morley has played guitar for the past twenty-two years, getting involved with everything from classical to extreme music, working with musical legends such as Gene Hoglan, Virgil Donati (Planet X, Steve Vai). Bennett, who’s played bass for most of his life, also came from a distinct background; one mostly filled with jazz has lead a prosperous career that has even seen him perform a special guest duet with bass legend Victor Wooten.
