Various Artists HVW8 Presents: Music Is My Art
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Ubiquity
Known more for brushwork than for beat matching, HVW8 Art Installation is a trio of artists that have created a diverse oeuvre of work for museums, clients like Puma, and live music events. On their new compilation, Music is My Art, the group proves it‘s also had its collective ear to the ground, gathering a cross-section of cutting-edge hip-hop, soul, and broken beat tracks. Ubiquity artists are well represented, but that doesn‘t diminish the disc‘s quality or range. The strutting, soulful track "The Hop" and "Long Ago," a Roots-flavored rap, cap off a compilation as rewarding as a gallery opening: no masterpieces, but plenty to be excited about.
