Monument Of The Broken Souls
Limited to 300 copies.
Releasedate: 9th of June 2014
Following his debut EP „Heartbox“, Blockboy’s new release „Monument Of The Broken Souls“ is a highly complex and entertaining record.
Again, it would be very hard to label his sound, but still the mix of HipHop-Beats, catchy melodies, all sorts of sampling and Blues influences is astonishingly homogenous.
The inspiration to many of these sound jewels are faded voices of the past – old Blues records from Blockboy’s Vinyl treasury. Accordingly, this record is dedicated to them: to the „broken souls“!
Vinyl includes free mp3 download coupon!
9th of June 2014 in the stores and as a digital version on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp ect.

Who the f_ck is Blockboy?
As an avowing vinyl-junkie, the native of Munich sees his inspirational roots mainly in Beat and Rockmusic of the early 70s as well as in the New York HipHop of the 90s.
In his recording studio and atelier in an old building flat in Munich, he regularly descends into spheres of visual art and sound. With attention to detail, the communication designer plays and records all instruments himself, strictly according to the motto: keep it real!
To put a label on Blockboy’s sound is not easy, since he shifts between many genres – one characteristic though is his affection for detailed samples of Vinyl treasures, which he skillfully transforms and refines.
Along with the band ‘Octopussies’, a HipHop-Funk combo, that he was founding member, guitarist and musical lead of, Blockboy already has a lot of live experience – with hand-made music and real instruments.
After releasing first tracks on the Sampler „Yummy! Yummy!“, followed by the release of his debut EP „Heartbox“, he finally made the full transition to electronic musician on his first LP, titled „Monument Of The Broken Souls“.
