The New Jersey trio of DoItAll, Mister Funke, and DJ Lord Jazz have made their return to music and are gearing up to release their first album in over a decade. Together as Lords Of The Underground, the group released four albums between 1993-2007, but have been relatively quiet in recent years, until now. Known for being one of the key Garden State representers during the 1990s, the new album is appropriately titled So Legendary, and while they have yet to drop the release date and tracklist, they have just released the first single off the album, “Insomniac.”
As with the entirety of the album, “Insomniac” is produced by The Snowgoons, who in the past decade have produced entire albums that similarly rejuvenated the underground careers of ’90s mainstays M.O.P. and ONYX. Here they lace the Lords Of The Underground with a boom-bap beat combined with an electric guitar riff to give DoItAll and Mister Funke a smooth pocket to flow in. The two emcees split the verses between each other, going for eight or four bars at a time and drawing ties between not being able to sleep both literally and figuratively.
