Factor never disappoints, always solid for me. Those features too! i think I've found a huge amount of new artists just through factors music over the years.
Favorite track: Hurricane Ex feat. Kay the Aquanaut.
Lost in the game
Tell me that you found a better way
Tell me that you found a better way
I have seen a man shot dead in the street
I have seen my face didn’t
notice it was me
In this fucking brain
It is pure cacophony
Puerto Rican hurricane
Roof off everything.
Take the pieces of my bone
Make a alter out my meat
Wish that i could save you
Be your Sanctuary
Learning to fly
Without a wing
Call me so Petty
Make up your mind
Do you want money or freedom
Or stability ?
I don’t even know
Take it all back
Make a motherfucker wanna crumble from Bomb blast
This won’t even matter in the end
I make em all laugh
Stupid really even believing in the feeling of love
Fuck em all
Do what you gotta do
I have been a bum
Scumbag friend to some
Do not pay attention advice i have
Keep believing in your pretty heaven

The album is comprised of new instrumental tracks and vocal features from Factor's frequent collaborators Ceschi, Myka 9, Kay the Aquanaut, Cadence Weapon, Mestizo, Dope KNife, Onry Ozzborn, Nomad, and Taylor Jade. Factor has gained significant attention for his consistent output of original, thought-provoking music that pushes the envelope of traditional hip-hop.

He is the founder, owner, and operator of Side Road Records, who will co-release “First Storm" with US label Fake Four Inc.

Factor Chandelier's production combines smooth melodic moods and live instruments over immaculate drums put together
seemingly effortlessly to create a distinct sound of his own and it's for this reason he's consistently banging out one-of-a-kind beats as one of underground music’s favourite producers. Factor continues to make waves with his innovative sound....more
Jesus what an absolutely stunning collection of hip-hop. If I have to be a dick, this album is more of a mix tape in style, the aesthetics of each song is just so different, there's a certain level of narrative disconnect. That said, the actual songs themselves are fucking ill. Packed with dope features, each one matched with Scott's production makes for a genuinely rewarding listen. Rest easy man, you'll be missed. always_kos
This album manages to feel deliberate, impulsive, confident, and scattered all at the same time... probably thanks to the unfiltered and somewhat draconian way that the songs were written. As someone who heard these songs piecemeal during the SOTW project, it is extremely satisfying to hear these songs fully fleshed out and curated together.
The arrangements on this album are so well constructed and natural. The album breathes in and out naturally, trusting the direction that the songs take it. realswellfan
