Ascended Essence Present’s: “DARK FLOW THEORY” M I X T A P E
RELEASED on December 18ththrough the21st, 2012
Three years after releasing the cosmic laced mixtape, The Grand Unification, Ascended Essence, made up of four emcees and two in-house beat makers, hailing from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and beyond, returns with Dark Flow Theory, their latest full length offering just before the end of the year or the world- depending on if you believe the Mayans.
If The Grand Unification lifted the listener to the clouds with positivity and clean lyrics then Dark Flow Theory is the express elevator back to Earth. Serving as tour guides on this lyrical journey back to the real world, emcees Arc-Diz, Epademc, Morpheous, and Mt. Sinai deliver their reports without trying to outshine each other. The end result is an introspective and cohesive commentary on society from each rapper’s perspective. Beatmakers Brent T. and Recruit have created a sonically diverse bed for the listener to crawl into and for four emcees to transmit their vision.
“With a more organic introspective look at into the artist’s incumbent, as well as shedding light on the Darker-side of the artist’s personalities. Hence, “Dark Flow Theory” was conceived— Staying true to the cosmic allure with the title of the mixtape— a metaphor that envelopes the evolution/expansion of the group; streamlining darker theme tracks with more lyrical grit and deep theory/philosophies,” said the group’s chief engineer Epademc on the approach to putting together the new release.
With production and writing of the first song “Our Time” beginning in summer 2011, the group originally set out to make DFT a full length album but instead chose to take the material and give fans a free mixtape instead. Describing the process of converting the project from full length to mixtape Epademc had commented, “Given that Ascended Essence produces, writes, records, and masters our music in-house. The effort took a bit longer than initially anticipated.”
Veteran Roanoke, Virginia, turntablist, DJ Hoodie (Mackstrumental Records) hosts the twenty track project, which is available for download at better Hip hop blogs as well as (ascendedessence.com) on December 18, 2012.

We worked with our friends at rcrd lbl and downtown music to pull together our songs for the summer. Some are new, some old, but all are perfect for putting the top down, having a lunchtime beer, and all those other nothing-better-to-do moments that make the summer the best time of year.
