Cali-based emcee and producer Jason Soto aka CookBook is proud to announce his newest release and romp through the past, "I Love the 80's". CookBook weaves movie references, synthesizers, techno dance sounds—alotta the greatest elements of the 80s—to create a celebration of a time known for aerobics and “The Breakfast Club.” Believe me when I tell ya that you're gonna recognize the tracks and samples. (Probably the reason that this is being given away for free if you ask me.)
Most people know CookBook as a member of the super rap collective LA Symphony. In 1999, the group’s critically acclaimed debut album, "Composition No. 1," thrust them into the national spotlight. Since then, they’ve released five full-lengths, and two EPs. The last release they had was "Unleashed" in 2007. And though the group is still together, CookBook and fellow LAS member UNO Mas have been busy in the studio working on several projects of their own.
"I Love the 80's" is far less a thug-homage to the decade than Prodigy’s recent "Product of the 80s"…CookBook’s style is lighter and quirkier, and the rhymes effortlessly weave in and out of 80s nostalgia. With tracks like “Die Hard,” “Molly Ringwald,” “Inner Space,” and “Growing Pains”, Cookbook uses colorful 80s-inspired samples and clever rhymes to successfully declare his love for the 80s. Slap on your neon and jogging suits, lace up your Reeboks, and get ready for a trip back in time—CookBook style! For fans of Pigeon John, the 80's, and good hip hop!!
