HiPNOTT Records is proud to announce today that we have signed a multi project deal with Maryland MC Substantial. This deal solidifies Substantial as a HiPNOTT recording artist and enables him to be one of the premier artists on the label.
“Signing Substantial to HiPNOTT was a no brainer. Along with talent and experience, Substantial brings a big fanbase with him to the label. He has a very genuine personality and his style fits in perfectly with what we represent at HiPNOTT. We welcome him to the family with open arms!” Kevin Nottingham, owner of HiPNOTT Records.
As a 13 year veteran in Hip Hop, Substantial is probably best known for his work with legendary Japanese producer Nujabes and his duo Bop Alloy with Marcus D. He has collaborated with the likes of Oddisee, Kool Herc, Cunninlynguists, Bootsy Collins, and many more. His 2012 album, Home Is Where The Art Is (Mello Music Group), was revered by hip hop fans worldwide.
In 2015, look out for a trio of EPs to be released from Substantial; each produced by different producers. Closing out the year will be his next official full length album.
To celebrate in today’s announcement, we are unearthing a previously unreleased track, “Splendor”, produced by Satellite 12 (Maga Demus & R.M.S.) for Red Planet Music. Grab the free download below.
