Introducing the debut album from UK duo Sophisticated Apes. Tamworth based emcee Tom Stiles (formerly known as Bigga) and Oxford based producer Liam Byrne (Third Degree) also originally from Tamworth, have been making music since the late 90’s. They originally formed part of the 6 man underground hip-hop group Gnostix.
Liam and Tom have devoted a lot of their time into forming Sophisticated Apes and are delighted to be bringing you the debut album Civilization. The album weighs in with 16 tracks and sees the duo taking a more mature and reflective outlook on life, which provides tracks that cover a wide range of topics and styles. Features include long-time friends and fellow artists Reggiimental, Joey G-Zus, Aikz, Carl Knight, Teresa Meads and UK heavyweight Wordsmiff Flip, scratches are provided by renowned DJ JabbaThaKut. Both Liam and Tom feel that this is not only some of their best work but also a well-rounded debut to introduce the world to Sophisticated Apes.
