I’m in the process of purchasing/downloading my copy of Highlighter, the new album from L.A. hip-hop duo People Under the Stairs.
I’m a big fan of Thes One and Double K for numerous reasons, and the video above is just another. Their laid-back brand of California cool has just always struck a chord with me. And, to be honest, I haven’t heard a lick of Highlighter yet; hell, I had no idea the release of a new album – their eighth – was imminent. It’s a good idea to pay attention to my email every now and again.
Anyway, check the video of Thes One discussing the digital transformation of the new album, which the group claims to be the first ever commercially released in the Fraunhofer 24-bit HD-AAC. In other words: It’s gonna sound pretty awesome. I wouldn’t doubt it coming from a guy who restores vintage stand-up arcade games. The gearheads out there will probably find this somewhat fascinating, but it’s easy enough for the casual fan to follow along.
And here’s a brief video trailer/teaser about the making of Highlighter:
