In & Out EP

A 7 track trip-hop ep (22m 25s) — released February 27th 2012 on Earnest Endeavours
Earnest Endeavours's second EP release features the rising stars of the UK's homegrown, experimental dungeon beats scene and Wales's most captivating and hard hitting producers: Darkhouse Family - aka Don Leisure and Metabeats.

Following their breakthrough debut EP 'Family Trees' on Fat City (hosted on the landmark 'Producers' series alongside compadres and luminaries Dabrye, dBridge, Mosca and Julio Bashmore). Darkhouse Fam's triumphant 'In & Out' EP is an accomplished blaze of guttural, syrupy, synth-addled hip hop with an old school approach re-appropriated into a new school vision.

Certified bangers from start-to-finish, the EP is engulfed by a hot boxed funk created by collaborations with the legendary vocalist / producer Om'Mas Keith from notorious hip-hop dynasty Sa-Ra Creative Partners (previous credits include Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Erykah Badu) on 'Take On The World', West Coast funkadelic baller, EE's B. Bravo (on 'Like No Other'); and Cardiff's own Vanity Jay on the sublime soul bump of Sticky Trees.
