Soul Odyssey

Arson Optics and Mirage Are Soul Odyssey EP (Melodic Science/Word Power, 2004)

Clarifying his dual role as both an MC and producer of Soul Odyssey, Arson Optics announces, "I'm walking that, talking that, slanging that rhyme. And don't forget the beat banging, that's mine." As his quartet of instrumentals conjure a jazzier Tomita losing himself in a web of Organized Noize-inspired bounce, Mirage grounds the proceedings with a resounding "Where I been, where I am, where I'm gone be, hustling my art in my hood, 2-3."
