Limited Edition Indonesia CDs AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Double CD: The first is a CD quality of the original album. The second is a through-the-looking-glass blend of album instrumentals and remixes by Backwoodz in-house maestro BOND, Nasa (Uncommon Music/Def Jux), Essex Dogs (logged production on Emergency Powers, Megagraphitti and Indonesia), Ravage (M.I.C.) and A.M. Breakups(of 11 A.M./Uncommon Music). All that and a bonus freestyle…plus a small pouch of rare enchanted gems that bestow their owner with mystical powers.!!! Just kidding. Not about the double CD thing though, that’s real.

Original Artwork by Ashes 57 and photos by Alexander Richter round out what we think is some of the best looking packaging we have put together for CD release…ever.

Last but not least, Autographed Copies are available if you order directly from us at Backwoodz, although we can only guarantee that it will be signed by at least one of the Flight Brothers since Marmaduke lives in Oakland, CA and Edge is currently residing in Philly again. We would have just had them sign a bunch but the CDs are so limited and some people might want a pristine copy considering how few are being printed.

Barring an investment by Warren Buffet or some of the ever elusive “Obama Money”, there will not be a repress. Once these hundred or so retail copies go, that is it. It is really just too cost prohibitive to print up small runs of double CDs and we all have sprawling country estates to keep out of foreclosure.

On the real though, thanks for your support and if you want a copy direct from us please contact the label at backwoodzstudioz@yahoo.com. Otherwise, we encourage you to support the few independent hip-hop retailers who will be carrying the deluxe hard copies of Indonesia.

Super Chron Flight Brothers present…Indonesia

Super Chron Flight Brothers

When questioned, the receptionist at the Panorama Guest House in Yogyakarta remembered the two “orang hitem” [black people] from America, quite easily. Although they only stayed for a couple weeks, the two men had drawn attention from the moment they arrived with a variety of electronics they said were for recording music. This claim appears to be borne out by the complaints lodged by other guests regarding the thumping bass at all hours of the day and a pungent aroma of high-grade marijuana, both emanating from their lodgings. Although both of the Americans were extremely polite when approached, they kept to themselves and were rarely seen in the common areas unless on a “liquor run”. The staff member could not recall the exact circumstances of the two brothers departure, but revealed that local plainclothes police arrived soon after, questioned her and searched the room. The management has since instituted an unwritten policy barring the renting of rooms to Negroes.

The Super Chron Flight Brothers are back for the first time since 2007’s dark horse of an LP, Emergency Powers. That record was heaped with critical acclaim; Allhiphop.com called it “daring graffitti”, Okayplayer said “one of the best underground releases of the year”, HipHop Connection magazine proclaimed Emergency Powers “A return to what intrigued about indie rap in the first place” and AllMusicGuide.com hailed it as “provocative, catchy…and an overall fantastic accomplishment”. Now the stoned siblings are back, and although Indonesia is less a follow-up to their debut than it is a side-project collaboration with Cali-based producer Marmaduke, it bangs just the same. Priviledge and Billy Woods took a break from working on Cape Verde, their forthcoming LP, to craft this experimental collage of hip-hop, dubstep and electronica. The production was primarily handled by Marmaduke [last seen lacing a couple bangers for Vordul Mega’s latest LP, Megagraphitti], but also includes Nasa [Uncommon Music/Def Jux], Backwoodz in-house producers DR. MONOKROME & EssexDogs, and electro-dub impressario Teleseen [War]. And while their debut album boasted names like MF DOOM, Cannibal Ox, The Reavers and Trife da God, on Indonesia the Flight Brothers go for dolo on the mic…no features, just Super Chron!

Indonesia- Two If By Land, Four If By Sea

The Flight Brothers may have been quiet since Emergency Powers and it’s companion disc Tour Support dropped in early 2007 but Priviledge and the venerable Mr. woods have been hard at work. That work will pay off with two new releases in 2009, starting with Indonesia and following up with Cape Verde. Indonesia will be a FREE DOWNLOAD but will also be available as a limited edition vinyl LP  for all you luddites out there who are still willing to pay us for our artistic efforts [we love you!]. Expect it to drop inn January.

Production on Indonesia is handled primarily by DJ Marmaduke [Megagraphitti, Terror Firma, The Chalice] with assistance from longtime Backwoodz producer DR MONOKROME. Add to that beats from Nasa [Uncommon Music] and electro-dub impressario Teleseen and you’ve got an interesting soundscape for the Brothers to fly over.

As for Cape Verde…well, one thing at a time…

Emergency Powers

Billy Woods and Priviledge are the Super Chron Flight Brothers and Emergency Powers; The World Tour is their debut album. With production by Bond, MF DOOM, Nasa (Def Jux / Uncommon Music), Dr. Monokrome and Goldenchild, as well as guest spots by Cannibal Ox, Trife da God, The Reavers and Marq Spekt, Emergency Powers is a future classic. Innovative storytelling, fearless lyricism and dope beats come together in a story of two black men flying high, low and everywhere in between for two years of their lives. Cannabis scented, unapologetically political and darkly humorous, Emergency Powers is the first of more to come from the Super Chron Flight Brothers.

Terror Firma

Perhaps not since the emergence of the Wu-Tang Clan has there been a hip-hop group of this magnitude. The Reavers are a supergroup like no other, eleven amazing MC’s, weilding a dizzying array of styles. Eleven strugglers brought to together by backwoodz studioz to march on the fortresses of the status quo. Eleven child soliders charging into the void, with nothing but a burning blunt to light the way. Kings, beggars, thugs, prophets, heathens, philosophers, drunks, healers, killers and poets are all among the Reavers ranks. And TERROR FIRMA is where we live.
