Stanza (as Quantum Suicide) - Supernova
Devoted citizens of Booth Nation will likely remember that Quantum Suicide, the super-group comprised of Searching for Bobby Fischer author Stanza on the mic and producer Strange Republik behind the boards, first popped up on our pages for their contribution to the RefinedHype Anniversary mixtape. Well, the response to their song on that project, Coma, was so strong we had to bring Quantum back, and so allow me to (re)introduce the duo on their new record and official DJBooth debut, Supernova. Much like his work on the aforementioned Coma, Republik crafts a hazy, somnolent beat that also features one of the stranger hooks, if you can call it that, in recent memory. Fittingly then, Stanza continues to prove he’s one of the more lyrically imaginative emcees working, dropping poetic, thought-inducing line after line: “Un-rehearse you, from your rehearsal / Rebirth you / Reteach / Today learnin a new speech / Now speak.” Fans of mindless, disposable music will want to stay far, far away from Suicide’s upcoming EP Momentum, set to drop September 28 via the greatest site ever created (that’d be DJBooth).
