Factor – Soundstage ft. AWOL One [Audio]

Saskatoon, SK – For this month’s installation of Factor Friday’s “Single Series” Saskatoon producer Factor teams up with L.A. MC, AWOL One (from The Shapeshifters), for this spacey new joint entitled “Soundstage.”

But before we get into the track at-hand, you all need to know that it’s Factor’s birthday today. Happy birthday, homie! So everyone go wish the dude a happy birthday. And check out “Soundstage” below.


Factor - Soundstage ft. AWOL One [Audio] -

Factor and AWOL One have released three studio albums, and are currently working on their fourth (which is slated for release later on this year via Fake Four Inc.). So what is “Soundstage,” you may ask? “Soundstage” is “underground hip-hop and sex appeal,” and going off to “roam the galaxy” and “riding the sound wave,” and other stuff like that.

AWOL One has this deep raspy soul-hopping quality to his voice. Which makes the whole “underground hip-hop and sex appeal” thing very, very real. Side note: I feel like if Bob Dylan started rapping, he might sound a bit like AWOL One on this joint. You feel me? Enver Hampton is on the bass, here. And the mastering was done by Deeskee.
