Shock the System

by 3ocloc Bogey & 3ob

A hiphop memoir through the haze of neurosurgical intervention: political and unashamedly caustic. This album has bass-heavy, instrument-rich grooves that are variously funky, jazzy and dubby and provide space for Bogey's off-kilter rhyme style to thrive
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap: Political Rap

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Delayed warning or misplaced manifesto? The LP finds Bogey clawing at the brink of a Global Financial Crisis, multiple US-led wars and a burgeoning climate change argument, pleading for sanit-damit-hanit…nup, ya fucked it. How we rebuild is upon us.

Written between 2007 and 2017, the interrupted long player contains takes from a younger 3oB, as well as later tracks, written and recorded in real time. There are some songs born in the aftermath of severe illness and neurosurgery (in late 2009) that slowed his roll to a standstill; whatever it is, it is all classic Bogey. It’s a more radical collection, compared to the 2013 debut 3ocloc Bogey, with no lyrical collaborators: just 3oB laying it down from start to finish. It’s like there was a lot he needed to get off his chest and you better not be a neocon.

‘From here the future is mine to do with as I please creatively, I’ve no more cross to bear, at least time can heal some wounds’
The long-awaited LP documents this transformation from youthful rebel, to wounded soldier and back again as vengeful phoenix. How does it feel to return from the brink of deadly bad luck to find the world in such a state? The answer: a Shock to the System.

‘The world has changed a lot since the receding of the neo-con era, and not all for the better I’d argue. I urge people to learn to see beyond their own material interests and to work together to build a more just world for all.’
