ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE BAND

Dante 'Young Luck' Orpilla - Rapper/Singer/Producer Born: Oakland, CA. Luck was taught to respect the power of music at a very early age. The son of Political Activists during the anti-dictatorship movement against the Ferdinand Marcos regime, Luck learned that a march is only heard if those marching can chant. He grew up exposed to music that empowered people to stand up for their beliefs. His production style along with the liquid delivery and potency of his words reflect those influences respectfully, and have garnered him a small following despite having never released an album of his own..." -----Octavia Wright, RYME MAGAZINE, 2004

Dave 'Davo' Foreman - Guitar Wizard - Born: Compton, CA - Nicknamed "The Wizard" by the late great Aaliyah, Mr. Foreman and his guitar have been known to raise the dead. His wizadry has blessed everyone from Snoop Dogg to 2Pac to Cristina Aguilera. Along with Luck, Davo created The Bottom Dwellerz as a production group aimed at the volatile Rap scene. The two quickly realized they had more to offer the world, and our band was born, largely in part to Davo's ability to carry an entire song with a single guitar solo.

Bruce 'Powda' Bouillet - Capn' Crunch - Born: Memphis, TN - A Product of the fabled "Racer X" camp, this master of the six string has gone under-rated for years. After winning a Grammy in 2005 for his production of Motorhead's "Whiplash", Mr. Bouillet joined the ranks and successfully gave The Bottom Dwellerz their trade mark Crunch. He is a genius playing any position on the field, and has studied music down to its basic theory. "Watch Close, or You May lose the chance.... To watch The Hands of Bruce Bouillet Dance"

D-Loc - Drums & Percussion Born: East Long Beach - "Picked up two sticks and beat the sh*t up out the Concrete" D, L-O to the C has been the Live drums behind Snoop Dogg since the Doggfather first took the stage and spit. With his unique groove and brilliant rhytm concoctionz never before heard of in Rock, Mr. Loc is our heartbeat. The 'Bottom of the Bottom' if you will. Preach...

Make no mistake. The guitar is the front man of this band, be it Acoustic, Electric, or Bass. I (Luck) am simply the bait to get youngsters to listen. In a world of digital sampling, and MIDI timecode, the art of guitar has been sh*tted on. It is time to bring respect back to the instrument that started it all, whether the industry is ready or not... can u hear the sound?

Listen to your life...
“Cracks of the Concrete” is a down-and-dirty set of thoughts and atmosphere. It does not shy away from the nitty-gritty of life, too often pushed passed our concerns. It reminds us that there are unfortunate souls that we try and ignore, and pulls deep at aspects of our lives. Musically, the lyrics are well thought and masterfully put together! There are lines on this album that fit together so perfectly and elicit such images that pictures are created out of smoke and words. But as the vocalist, Young Luck, says, the guitar is really the frontman of the group. While it is more rap than rock here, there is no denying that whenever the guitars do come out, they come out strong. The solos are moving, soulful, dynamic, and technical. There should be no overlooking these players, and I’m sure you will agree. With all of the guests that this record brings in, and the way the songs are set up, this is much more like an informal get-together of friends than anything. But trust me, this is a fantastic collection of music and worth taking a chance on.
