Deep in the High Focus catacombs, Nature’s Greatest Mystery has been gathering in force. For years the underworld has been buzzing to the sound of a new band of lyricists, a feathered troop of strigiformes unlike anything the world has seen before. It is only now that The Four Owls are ready to take flight once again.
This band of owls hover in cypher circles gripping microphones with their iron talons, leaving humans in the wake of their earthly knowledge. Led by the merciless BIG OWL (FLIPTRIX), guided by the teachings of BIRD T (VERB T), entertained by the do-or-die spirit of RUSTY TAKE-OFF (BVA) & inspired by the inventions of DEFORMED WING (LEAF DOG), THE FOUR OWLS are here to take over. Backed entirely by High Focus artist Leaf Dog on the production The Four Owls maintain a sound that is true to Hip Hop in its real form.
Nature’s Greatest Mystery was High Focus Records’ most ambitious release to date, a gamble that worked out very well, as the record essentially became an ambassador for UK Hip Hop the world over as well as being the top selling UK Hip Hop album in the country with videos such as ‘Life In The Balance’ clocking close to 1,500,000 views on Youtube!
As a result High Focus Records has quickly gained a reputation for pushing boundaries in a scene that has grown desperate for a new type of binocular vision. The Four Owls are responsible for a modern day classic, encapsulating straight up-and-down head banging rhythms, undiluted lyricism and conceptual brilliance. Who said UK hip hop was dead? Just look to the skies, or look to the stage, where the Owls have consistently pulverised every P.A. system the world over and back again.
After hibernating in their mysterious lair for over 3 years, the time has come for the owls to descend once again from their colony in the highest mountain peaks and unleash a wave of hip hop unlike anything you mere humans have heard before in the form of their new 2nd album ‘NATURAL ORDER’.
The formula is the same, but the potion is as mysterious as ever; Deformed Wing’s beat making talons are sharper than ever, and the four MC’s have soared to new lyrical and conceptual heights, and just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, the Owls have also recruited non other than the legendary DJ PREMIER to embark on this next outing too! This is History in the making..
