Blue Scholars' new album Oof! coming soon!!!

Blue Scholars return with "their most collaborative multi-media project, yet: OoF! — a collaboration with painter, vinyl toy & skate deck artist, Angry Woebots who made a collaborative painting to go along with the song “HI-808” which will be turned into a limited edition print and t-shirt; one of Hawaii’s premier photographers and historian of all things dope Aaron Yoshino (Honozooloo / 5 to Life) who’s photos have documented Hawaii’s subculture for several years and who is creating the cover art of the EP; the influential Hawaii based surf & skate boutique brand IN4MATION where Angry Woebot’s painting was made; and the island’s premiere video production crew, Kai Media, who directed and shot the music video for the track Hi-808, shot in and around Oahu (edited by Zia Mohajerjasbi). All these groups have come together to create this project which will be sold as a complete package online using Topsin Media widgets at Blue Scholars’ and each project partners’ websites, with the EP being available separately at the usual digital retailers.

Anchoring the project is the OOF! EP featuring six new Blue Scholars tracks. One of which is the familiar complex lyricism and production of “HI-808,” which documents the differences between the Hawaii Geo grew up in and the one he would later return to, laid over an 808-drum-dominated Sabzi masterpiece. In addition, all five instrumental versions will also be included, encouraging other artists to make their own songs with these riddims. Also, check out the unreleased Coffee & Snow which also will not appear on Oof!
