Young Planet is a Brooklyn based hip-hop duo comprised of rapper Cidida and producer Eibol. Their sound is a balance between Cididaʼs lyrical prowess and Eibolʼs cinematic arrangements over hard-hitting drums in which he combines everything from technological manipulation to live instrumentation.
The duo is set to release their new album “New Fast Automatic” for free download via http://www.spinyoungplanet.com. The album itself is a magnifying glass held over the contemporary world that observes the universal obsession with technology, privacy and consumerism at the same time daring to ask the question “What will the future hold”?
Yet, what about the past? The foundation of Young Planet was conceived in the summer of 2006 while the two were interning at the legendary Chung King Studios. The pair squatted in an unused loft on the studioʼs 11th floor. Nearly every night after sessions they would write, record, and mix songs, which would begin the process that would later drive Young Planet. Eibol quickly became an in-house engineer working with artists such as Jay Electronica, Wyclef Jean, Tony Touch and Ryan Leslie until the studios closing in 2010. Cidida, quickly gaining notoriety on BETʼs Freestyle Friday, went undefeated for seven weeks, to also appearing on both Terry Urban and Mick Boogieʼs “The Great American Mix tape” as well as Talib Kweliʼs “The Blacksmith Community Mix tape”. After honing their individual talents the two later reconnected to release their debut album “Ludwig, Can You Hear Me?” and form Young Planet.
Built on inspirations ranging from Bob Dylan, Company Flow and George Orwell’s 1984 “New Fast Automatic” manages to create the perfect score for that nagging feeling that we’ve pushed things a little too far, offering up songs like “Thought Police”, “Aww Man” and “Night Life” to explain just how. Immediately the subversive nature of the album becomes apparent through socially aware lyrics and heavy production. In every track the feelings are raw and impossible to ignore.
After working tirelessly for the last year, Young Planet is happy to present “New Fast Automatic” to their fans. Turn your speakers up and spin Young Planet.
