Presenting "THE CABIN FEVER EP" - the long-awaited 1st instalment of CARPETFACE's eclectic new EP series: "FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES" ft production + cuts from French beatsmith extraordinaire DJAR ONE.

Having collaborated several times before on Hip Hop releases on both artists' labels, this hard-hitting and topical 12" collab release is the first of many joint label offerings pressed and distributed in partnership with Diggers Factory under their new imprint "NEWBIAS / BEATS HOUSE"

Behind CARPETFACE’s funky tongue-twisting vocals and DJAR ONE’s classic 90’s boom-bap vibes lies a brutally honest and at times painfully accurate snapshot of the ongoing effects of Lockdown and current affairs on Mental Health - in a 7-track depiction of a single dad's struggle to keep it together while stuck in an isolated cabin missing fun and funerals as the world outside goes nuts.

DJAR ONE's jazz-heavy, head-nod production sets a smoky scene for CARPETFACE's unrelenting, often disturbing, yet highly relatable maze of mood-swings. Despite the painful subject-matter, the EP brims with tongue-twisting lyrical dexterity, filthy fun-poking and pure Hip Hop guts. The end result is a deceptively enjoyable experience that mis-directs the listener to a place of anguish and back, with an underlying theme of perseverance in the face of adversity throughout.

This record is testament to the cathartic value of Hip Hop expression, alternating between aggressive rants of sneering disgust + cries for help and forgiveness, literally climbing the walls in one man's lonely quest for self-redemption. Following Nina Simone's mantra "an artist's duty is to reflect the times", while deeply personal on one hand, THE CABIN FEVER EP is also a call to spiritual arms in the global battle against racism, corruption + police/state brutality - at one of the most divisive + alarming periods in human history.
