Released March 26th 2013, Journeymen’s “Pledge of the Respirator” EP provides hiphop fiends an original boombap survey that was delivered by the consistent narratives of Mickey Boston Kovaks, John Wholetrain and Melo Malo Paulino.

With influences ranging from KRS-One to Pink Floyd, members of the underground Hip-Hop conglomerate, “Journeymen”, have rapidly made a name for themselves both in the US and Canada. 2013 will be an important milestone for the three boom bap fiends as they officially release their highly anticipated debut EPPledge of the Respirator.

In the tradition of respected artists such as Nas, the 6-track debut EP bares no guest emcee featurings; its purpose being to reflect the collective’s lyrical versatility and gritty boom bap identity. In an industry where earning one’s “stripes” is tantamount, Journeymen’s opening Pledge of the Respirator is intent on familiarizing boom bap fanatics with their trademark sound.

As Journeymen are no strangers to their craft—each of whom are solo emcees continuing their distinct solo careers—they are set on infusing a new seed within the ever fertile jungle of hip-hop. By combining a Queens veteran emcee, Melo Malo Paulino, and his verbose battle-emcee cadence, alongside the poignant and compelling narrative structure of MicKey Boston Kovaks’s social activism-infused lyrics with producer/emcee John Wholetrain’s classic Golden Era sound, Journeymen becomes a gift to hip-hop heads who yearn for old school boom bap.

Journeymen’s follow-up effort, a full-length LP entitled The Guild, is slated to include features from Sadat X, El da Sensei, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Journalist 103, PH formerly Pumpkinhead, Ali Shine (Medina Green) and Megadon, as well as production from DJ [MNTPLS].

Fully produced by John Wholetrain, "Pledge of the Respirator" features the cuts of DJ CASE and mixing by Conn Shawnery alongside a finalized product mastered by studio DRX.
