Dilated Peoples - Directors Of Photography [2LP] (Clear Vinyl, , gatefold, limited)

Dilated Peoples have released four acclaimed albums, toured extensively and enjoyed

sustained success as solo artists. Now, after an eight-year hiatus, Dilated Peoples returns with

Directors Of Photography, the group's remarkable debut album under the Expansion

Team/Rhymesayers Entertainment banner.

Evidence, Rakaa (Iriscience) and DJ Babu's new collection demonstrates how the group has

been able to remain loyal to its signature sound, style and sentiment while adding new and

dramatic artistic wrinkles to its already-extensive musical repertoire.

With Directors Of Photography, Dilated Peoples shows it only improved during its hiatus,

returning to a genre quick to dismiss veterans. ''I think the statement we made this time around

is that the three of us are still here standing, making quality Hip Hop from our hearts,'' DJ Babu

says. ''We never chased trends and we always stayed true to ourselves. Even with the changes

in the music industry and the world, we still managed to stay cutting edge and classic and, in

many ways, independent. This LP is very full circle for us.''
