Mr. Echoes and the Isle of Weight make up the Opus, a tandem of beat making mavericks that first gained notoriety with their standout productions for Rubberoom and Thawfor. They have worked with many of today's most talented artists including I Self Devine, Aesop Rock, Murs, DJ Krush, Meatbeat Manifesto, and Slug. Their solo full-length debut, First Contact was released by Tri-Eight and Ozone to universal acclaim and landed the duo an Urb's "Next 100" spot and overwhelmingly positive reviews in The Source, Spin, XXL, CMJ, and XLR8R. Emotional depth and moodiness are essential elements of their work. Dark without being abrasive, difficult yet engaging, their sound is reminiscent of dark drum and bass, yet firmly cemented into the hip-hop annuls.
