eh about this release


Comparable to De La Soul, A Tribe Called
Quest, the Pharcyde, the Jungle Brothers, and
Digable Planets, Ugly Duckling is a quirky,
jazz-influenced alternative rap trio who
formed in the Los Angeles suburb of Long Beach
in 1995. Group members Dizzy, Young Einstein,
and Andy Cat started collaborating around
1995, and the hip-hoppers took the name Ugly
Duckling because they felt like outcasts on
the Southern California hip-hop scene of the
mid-'90s. Gangsta rap was the West Coast's
dominant hip-hop trend at the time, and Ugly
Duckling's members had no interest in the type
of macho posturing and violent, threatening
lyrics for which gangsta rap was known. In
1998, the group put out "Fresh Mode", a single
that sold more than 3,000 copies and seemed to
get a buzz going. Later that year, Ugly
Duckling was signed to 1500 Records (initially
a subsidiary of Interscope/Universal) and
recorded their debut EP, which was also titled
"Fresh Mode" and came out in 1999; "Journey To
Anywhere" followed a year later. In 2003,
"Taste The Secret" was released. They later
signed to the Brooklyn-based independent hip-
hop label Fat Beats, where they issued Bang
For The Buck" (2006) and "Audacity" (2008) .

Ugly Duckling is now back with their fifth
full-length album "Moving At Breakneck Speed".
After more than a decade in the music
business, Young Einstein, Andy Cooper and
Dizzy Dustin are well accustomed to the
recording process. For their latest LP, the
boys dug deep into their bag of tricks to
create what they feel is their most dynamic
and complete release to date. "Moving At
Breakneck Speed" is an exciting and musically
exotic adventure story that has our desperate
heroes circling the globe to outrun an evil
gang of super-criminals determined to put an
end to UD once and for all. The record is made
up of 14 power packed tracks that showcase
Ugly Duckling's classic production sound as
well as the flavorful and humorously soulful
vocal styles of Dizzy and Andy. "By the time
you work on your fifth record, you ought to
know how to do it, right?" asks Andy, "I think
we put all of the pieces together to make a
really, really good album".
