“Blooddrive Vol. 3″, BRZOWSKI’s latest addition to the Milled Pavement Records catalog (MP053) is a packed compilation album including new songs, rare tracks, collaborations, demos, unreleased remixes, and lost material spanning from 2006-2012. This record is not for the uninitiated, as all of BRZOWSKI’s diverse musical influences are on full display across the production of 16 producers, ranging from the abstract futurist musings of “Babylonian Transformer” to the neo-gothic creepshow of “Whorebar”, on through to the traditional East Coast hiphop slugfest “Them Boys Ain’t Right”.
After 10 years of scene-building in Portland, ME as an mc and banner-guard for Milled Pavement Records, 6 years of touring throughout 5 countries (most recently France, Germany, and Switzerland this past April ’12 with Milled Pavement CEO Moshe), over 800 performances, 2 critically acclaimed albums, 4 mixtapes, 2 ep’s, 1 7″ single, countless featured appearances, and performing live with a venerable who’s-who of independent hip-hop, BRZOWSKI is throwing down the gauntlet. He presents “Blooddrive Vol. 3″ with all the desperation of a man with nothing to lose but the remnants of his mind.
Winning poetry slams and MC battles, 3 European tours (a fourth slated for late 2012), appearing at SXSW, moon-lighting tour stints with Sage Francis, Sole, Ceschi, Epic, Galapagos4, as well as playing to packed clubs supporting the varied indie-hop stripes of Busy Bee, El-P, Spose, Ill Bill, Slaine, Busdriver, 2Mex, Killah Priest, Atmosphere, Murs, Dalek, Brother Ali, Doug E. Fresh, Josh Martinez, Aceyalone, DJ Vadim, Astronautalis, Sleep, K-the-I???, B. Dolan, members of the Shapeshifters, and myriad others have cemented BRZOWSKI a reputation for quality live performance, an alignment with the best in the business, and an uncanny knack for harvesting the fans of those artists with higher profiles.
