“I am a big fan of Conscious Route, I have been playing the debut album on repeat at home and the whole thing is outstanding”
-Phoebe Inglis-Holmes – BBC Introducing Scotland
“There’s a real depth of knowledge from this album as it tackles a lot of relevant subjects, providing an accurate commentary of this evermore politically charged environment we find ourselves in. This is not a project you want to miss!”
-Lloyd Ross – Wordplay magazine
“It’s an incredibly accomplished album, comprising 20 tracks and six short, interview-style skits. Channel 4 has already featured music from the album on its mini documentary series”
-Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon – Scotsman / Scotland on Sunday
“A landmark record. Not just in Scottish Hip Hop, but in Scottish music full stop.”
-Darren McGarvey – Rapper, Writer, Orwell Prize winner 2018
