A Word From Our Sponsor

Ray here.  Just a quick word from the basement while Chee’s away visiting the Subcontinent.  I’m in the process of migrating the Himalayan Project home base to our nifty new blog.  With all of the changes in the internet of the the last decade (hard to believe we’ve been at this as long as we have), from blogs to digital distribution and social networking sites, I think this new format is the best way for non-techies to easily update fans/friends and keep the various HP tentacles attached.

And yes, we’re still making new music (“we’re”, being mostly Chee).  Hit up the Facebook or Myspace pages some of the latest rough cut offerings.


I wish my brother Ray was here…

Chee: <> “Unearthed Hurt & Other Disappointments” was recorded between 2006 and 2007. Seven of the Eight beats were done by my boy Ali Abidi who was gracious enough to let me drop this. We never meant to release these tracks commercially as they were mainly sketches and vignettes, but since I was getting emails from folks asking about an old mixtape (which was actually a demo), I decided to throw this out there. I hope you enjoy it and spread it to folks via this link. We created the tracks out of a need to discover material, have fun, and see what we could collectively come up with for future releases. If you miss lo-fi hip-hop circa ’92, then this should fit the bill. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please support my commercially available <> <> <> <>

Ray: Yeah! By the way, dude, what ever happened to the boxing blog post you put up earlier today? It was a solid piece of sports writing… forged from the same fires that produced Ohio steel. Did it get deleted? Shame…

Chee: We don’t do hokey.
