HHE038 / Funkghost – Ultra Boogie Highlife LP
Funkghost is a rapper/producer from Tampa, Florida, who was one of the forefathers of the local hip-hop scene and an apprentice of keyboard player Edwin Birdsong.
Funkghost's efforts culminated in his debut album, Ultra-Boogie Highlife, a self-produced endeavor consisting of 14 tracks. Ultra-Boogie Highlife has everything you've ever wanted in a hip hop album: samples that you've never heard of before, instruments that may or may not be live, and drums that hit hard.
Not only will you discover back-to-back banging beats, you'll also find some great rhymes as well. The music on Ultra-Boogie Highlife is funky, melodic, and atmospheric, and while the rhymes may focus on materialistic things, Funkghost more than makes up for it with his wordplay. All in all a hip-hop delicacy!
I'm proud to present you a long overdue limited reissue of only 250 copies on vinyl which will consists of 100 colored copies (opaque red with blue marble) and 150 copies on black vinyl.
