After receiving amazing feedback on the CD "Wor(l)d Connects Vol.1", followed by fantastic reviews of leading hiphop and urban music magazines in Germany, the record label 58 Beats decided to additionally release the album as a double vinyl LP - a collector's edition with a rough cover, accompanied by an inlay displaying the idea behind and the history of the compilation and including the CD itself.

Wor(l)d Connects Vol.1 is a collaborative project between hiphop producer Glam a.k.a. Glammerlicious (Main Concept) and his Munich-based label 58Beats with Urban Vibes, an urban music series initiated and realized since 2006 by the Department of Arts and Culture of the City of Munich and brought to life with the aid of our partners Matthias Knapp and Die F?rberei, a facility run by Kreisjugendring M?nchen-Stadt (the association of youth organizations in Munich). From Pee Froiss and Daara J Family, the pioneers of Senerap from West Africa, where the art of emceeing is said to be born, to Australia's poetry slam champion Omar Musa, who was touring as support for Gil Scott-Heron in Germany, from Palestine's Sugar Hill Gang DAM (Da Arabian MCs) to America's most controversial hiphop duo Dead Prez and their "Revolutionary but Gangsta" fam bro Umi (P.O.W.), from the award-winning alto-saxophonist and versatile MC Soweto Kinch, who - according to The New York Times - demonstrates what "England has to teach about narrative hiphop" to Havana's old school icon Ulises, who was introduced to us by Pablo Herrera, one of Cuba's most influential hiphop producers, from Munich's talented hiphop prince Boshi San and Germany's unbeatable freestyle king David Pe (Main Concept) to Saian Supa Crew's bass-baritone rapper Vicelow - various hiphop artists from Munich, New York, Lod/Al-Lyd, Dakar, Havana, Sydney, London, Kinshasa, Paris etc. have been invited to participate in the Urban Vibes program and to work with producer Glam. Finally the 58Beats-man underlined the MCs lyrics in English, French, Wolof, Patois, Spanish, Arabic, and German with his distinguished beats and turned everything into a groovy fusion. And thus the idea of releasing a global hiphop compilation was born and paved the way for Wor(l)d Connects Vol.1.

Further transnational cooperations beyond the above-mentioned Urban Vibes-project additionally enrich the album. Being based on the same idea of gathering at Glam's studio, checking out cool beats and spontaneously starting work on it, the four bonus tracks Who Got The Flavor?, Give It To Me Clearly, Algo Para Creer, and The World Aint Ready have now been newly mixed by Glam and finally found their way into the compilation. Feature guests are: Glam's long time collaborators Get Open (SibaGiba, Kiambu, VonMeista and Zook), a US hiphop collective from New York, that has opened for artists such as KRS 1/BDP, De La Soul, Jungle Brothers and others, Marie Martin, a French singer, who uses her native Brittany and Spanish roots as her main inspirations between modernity and nostalgia, soul and jazz, Munich's legend/acrobat of rhymes David P (Main Concept), America's smoky voice Problemz, DV Khryst, a Brooklyn native who can be heard on De La Soul's Art Official Intelligence/Mosaic Thump album, Retsam, "Da Prince", Munich's underground freestyler Raptile and the German hiphop hero Samy Deluxe. Who Got The Flavor? and The World Aint Ready were originally released on vinyl and are now available on CD for the first time.

Wor(l)d Connects Vol.1 is also a pulsating piece of 'edutainment'. It maps that despite all clich?s reducing hiphop to a mere 'blingbling'-style fun pop, independent scenes between Africa, the Arab World, Europe, the US, the Caribbeans, and Downunder have been transforming hiphop into a conscious creative syntax and integrative force.

Following the credo of being "on a mission" hiphop artists sometimes break certain taboos. Stic.man and M1 from Americas confrontational duo Dead Prez are well known as purveyors of social causes through their music. And Senegalese rappers such as Daara J Family and Pee Froiss are among the country's loudest campaigners for social justice seeing themselves as street journalists and educators. In the same sense DAM, the first-ever Palestinian rap group, uses hiphop to convey frustrations and hopes of a dispossessed people. They resume: "We say political stuff on the mic and we back it up in our daily life." Well said: "It's not about getting rich, it's about keeping it real"

So let the wor(l)d connect and keep it 100!
