The album featured collaborations with Paris producer-extraordinaire Keor Meteor, L.A. beatmaker RenRok, MISHAP of Ugly Boy Music, and a romper with Grand Ear and Bobby Blunt. STIDAK quickly followed up with an instrumental EP, "Hungry Thief," which was well received by the few who stumbled upon it. It featured dark melodies and acid jazz riffs over big, burly basslines and bouncy beats. And the last part of the trinity was the amazing collaborations album, "Past the Sun and Moon." The list of producers who worked with STIDAK on this album is stunning in its potential for frequent flyer miles rewards.
Beatmakers hailed from all parts of the globe. From Tokyo, Paris, UK to California and parts between. All 3 albums were released on Bandcamp and at least 2 are free. He was in a regional hip hop group in the 90's from VA called Verbal Threat, first signed to NY indie label Idlers, then self-released an EP in '97, "The Essence" and performed many shows in the Mid Atlantic until they disbanded in 2000. Stidak says he honed his delivery and presence during those years as VT became a full band and was one of the early rap groups, along with the Roots, playing regularly with a live band. In 2012 Stidak released two albums, "The Single Malt EP" with L.A.
producer, RenRok, billing themselves as The Foundry, and also a beat album, "Higher Branches." He also appeared on a compilation for Outlier Recordings with the song "Bubblin'" produced by Impossible Nothing and on another for Pragmatic Theory rhyming on a beat by Byrdversion1 from Philadelphia as well as features for Collective Resonance, Ugly Boy Music and VIAS. 2013 saw the stellar release of the long awaited collaboration with Paris, France beatsmith, Keor Meteor. The album, "Widespread Irregularity," was released in March by Pragmatic Theory and featured Meteor's jazzy, stylized production forming a pristine backdrop and accompaniment to Stidak's sharp tongue and wavy flow. The digital release was well received and critically well liked as being "musically sound" and "intelligent" and is still among the most downloaded albums on the Pragmatic Theory site. Currently, he is set to release a beat album called "Houndstoof" in Dec 2013 and is at work on an album with his IndieGeneUs Collective comrade, El RaSun called, "Corsair Radio." 2014 should see projects with Norfolk, VA producer Skratch Zilla, a new album by THE FOUNDRY, and another album with Keor Meteor as well as a mixtape series and radio show with IndieGeneUs. Tour dates are being set for shows in Australia, Japan and Germany, Summer 2014.
