Biography

Quakers is a hip-hop collective boasting 35 members which orbits around a core of three producers: Fuzzface, 7-Stu-7 and Katalyst.

Fuzzface is better known as Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, a long-time Stones Throw supporter in touch with Peanut Butter Wolf since championing the Jaylib album back in 2004. 7-Stu-7 is Portishead’s engineer and in-house producer at Invada Records in the UK. Katalyst is one of the most respected producers in Australia and a partner in Invada Records.

Disillusioned with much of the hip-hop around them, the like-minded producers set out to create the type of rap record they’d want to listen to. That meant gathering one of the most varied arrays of talent ever seen on a hip-hop record. Rather than just sending beats to the hottest names of the moment, the producers sought out genuine collaborators, regardless of whether they were legendary or simply stumbled upon around the world wide web. Invitations were sent out to golden era legends such as Prince Po and The Pharcyde’s Booty Brown, indie rap titans such as Dead Prez and Phat Kat, and of course some of StonesThrow’s finest: Aloe Blacc, Guilty Simpson, MED and newest signings Jonwayne and Dave Dub all make memorable contributions. There are also some lesser known talents present: band-favorite Coin Locker Kid, Lyric Jones, Estee Nack & more hold it down with their more celebrated peers.

    All underground hiphop albums should be as awesome as this. Experimental, dirty, and progressive while still being catchy/melodic and having a great, unique sound to it. Almost all the rappers are on point and even the weaker tracks can be shrugged off since they only last a minute or two. Meanwhile, the awesome tracks can be repeated over and over. Quakers leave rappers on the ground with their jugular slashed.

    Goddamn they could have cut out like 9/10 of that album and released a solid ep. Got more filler than a double stuft oreo nawmsayin?

    Gob Smacked how good this is, I am not the biggest hip hop fan but this digs so deep its almost a reinvention of the genre. Some of the samples are far out HIP-ADELIA lol
