Centrifugal Phorce: CPR-KMP-001 ft. Cryptic One


"After making a little noise in the NY underground with his crews Elite Bomb Squad and Centa Of Da Web in the 90's and spitting one of the hottest verses on Can Ox's "The Cold Vein" album, Atoms Family founder Cryptic One was ready to drop his solo debut "The Anti-Mobius Strip Theory" in 2004. 

While the album achieved critical acclaim, the CD-only release went under the radar, thanks to poor distribution. In early 2015, Cryptic One eventually put his plans into action and pressed 200 copies of his debut longplayer on lovely black double vinyl as well as 100 copies on translucent yellow vinyl, housed with a bi-fold lyrics sheet in a sticker sleeve, available @ www.crypticone.net
