about

Genius Collective's debut full release sees a double-A single with
"The Hideout" and "Theory";
"The Hideout" is a Slow paced, blues inspired track featuring the
beautiful vocals of Marika Diamond and guest Trumpet from Willis.
"The Hideout" blends the deep funky bassline with light keys, a
stunning saxophone riff from Alto Smith, and additional vocals from
Genius Collective's producer Vice, offering a mix of neo-soul and
Hip Hop.

"Theory" is an upbeat Soul tinged Hip Hop track aimed to tackle the
eternal issues that musicians face in a tough musical industry.
Combining the incredible vocal talents of Genius Collective's leading
lady Kezia Johnson and Vice, the scratch hook offers a backdrop
for a seriously funky guitar track supplied by Ste Sheldon. With
guest flute from Carvalho (Versify Music), "Theory" sees one of
GC's most successful live tracks converted to a tightly produced,
fast paced tune that really has something to say.

Both tracks are accompanied by versatile, genre spanning remixes
courtesy of Bristol based DJ / Producer Jagos, who offers a seriously
banging D n B infused remix ot “Theory”, & a futuristic Hip Hop remix
of “The Hideout” by Spanish beatmaker Eldoctor Kajota aka Momo.

Genius Collective are a seven piece Hip Hop / Soul / Funk band
based in Birmingham, UK. Established in 2010, GC offer a Jazzy
take on the Hip Hop Band concept. With the band consisting of a
fusion of Hip Hop heads, to classically trained Jazz musicians, their
style blends honest, feel good lyrics with funk rhythms to get your
head nodding, your mind thinking and your feet moving. Genius
Collective aim to hit the scene soulfully with their jazzy & distinctive
sound.

Already garnering support from the likes of Craig Charles Funk &
Soul Show and Tom Robinson (BBC Introducing), Genius Collective's
distinctive sound is rapidly being recognised and supported. With a
mesmerising live show, GC have already played shows across the
country, including Headlining at some of Birmingham and London's
most prestigious venues.

Track Name: The Hideout f. Marika Diamond & Willis
hook - Marika:
vibe out
vibe out
vibe out
in the hideout

v1 - Marika:
long hours
warm shower
days over
night crawler,
i'm about to take a trip to this spot i know,
Call my people,
and tell them it's time to go,
we do this when we want to,
how we want to,
cos we want to,
crack a joke or a few,
no-ones watching you,
freestyle to the beat,
just do what you do,
and it's about that time,
to free your mind,
and let yourself go,
so just unwind,
if it's fine with you,
it's cool with me too,
and it's so good right now,
im not questioning how,
let's just vibe out,
let's just vibe out,
bring a friend too,
we can hang out,
till we pass ou-ou-out

hook - Marika:
vibe out
vibe out
vibe out
in the hideout

verse 2 - Vice:
There's this little place I know,
That nobody else knows,
Behind closed doors,
Away from prying eyes so,
It's an escape no doubt,
Switch inside for out,
Just me, you, the crew,
And a bottle or two,
Just jamming out,
Vibin out,
No bouts of stress,
No need to contest,
This place is just blessed,
From PS3 contests,
To straight reminiscing,
This is a spot for calming your inhibitions,
Free your mind,
And Release your inervisions,
Just like the good old days,
No responsibilities,
These little bits of happiness,
Can ease the madness,
Just forget the bills,
And the ever growing need for skills,
Pull up a chair and ease your cares,
Have a chat,
Sit Back,
And relax in the Hideout,
Just jam out and vibe out,
There's nowhere i'd rather be.

hook - Marika:

Bridge - Marika:
It's about that time,
to free your mind,
and let yourself go,

Track Name: Future (aka. Breaks) (Vice Remix)
Verse 1:
All that drama,
All that hating,
I've been dealing with,
On my own,

All that stressing,
Time I was spending,
Thinking of us,
You were gone,

So where's that love,
That we once had,
Is gone,
And all the trust and communication,
That we once shared,
It's gone

Chorus:
I see a future,
A Future
Waiting There for me,
To touch,
It's Looking brighter and lighter,
Shining down on me,
To Excel

Verse 2:
You're so distant,
You don't even listen,
Why can't you just see,
What's going on,

I'm tired of trying,
While you're busy hiding,
We should just be brave,
And move on,

Cos there's no love,
That we once had,
Is gone,
And all the trust and communication,
That we once shared,
It's gone

Chorus:
I see a future,
A Future
Waiting There for me,
To touch,
And It's Looking brighter and lighter,
Shining down on me,
To Excel

Outro:
You were like my best friend,
I told you everything,
But the truth enlies between the lies,
So boy you better read and write,
Read and Write.
