about

Press:

"New vs Old’ is another collection of effortlessly gorgeous hip hop." -The Find Magazine

"You can’t fake your way into finding a groove, you have to feel it. And IV can feel out a groove." -Scratched Vinyl

"It’s atypical IV with his multi-layered style of live instrumentation and obscure drum samples and high hats and pauses and … you get the idea. " -The Echo Chamber Blog

"Remember the name, IV the Polymath has only just begun to leave his mark in hip-hop." -The Word Is Bond

Album Description:

After several well-received digital & cassette releases IV the Polymath is back at it with New. vs. Old; a unique blend of live instrumentation & hip-hop production.

Despite flying under the radar, IV has been steadily building a name for himself thru music licensing (Mountain Dew Tour 2011), collaborations (junclassic, Atari Blitzkrieg), radio play (XM Radio, WEFUNK Radio), & charity work (St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Charity: Water).

Musically, New vs. Old is crossroads between where IV’s been & where he’s headed. Advanced arrangements, diverse textures, & skillful breakdowns all work to define his unique sound & leave listeners wondering why they haven’t heard of him before. Add in hard-hitting drums, funky basslines, & soulful keys & each track is a musical journey in & of itself.
