Hip Hop's current fascination with the glittery, glamorous world of champagne and caviar created an overabundance of music whose style heavily outweighed it's substance. However, in direct rebellion against these efforts to soften up rap's image and make it more palatable for mass consumption, we now witness the resurrection of hip-hop as an outlet of political, cultural and social prophecy. Heads in the underground trenches can now rejoice! From out of the ashes of hip hop's rebirth, heralding the return to true skills and superior quality comes the re-release of the critically acclaimed album ClokWorx - "Microchips". ClokWorx exploded on the underground hip-hop scene with their 12' release Mental Flux b/w Time In This Career (CommonWealth Records/Landspeed), which was voted #1 Editors Pick at RollingStone.com, #3 Downloads@Tunes.com, UnsignedHype@TheSource.com, and charted # 40 on CMJ which earned them a spot on the 1999 Lyricist Lounge Tour. Unfortunitly after the release of their sophomore 12" Preservative (CommonWealthRecords/Buds), ClokWorx disbanded leaving a void in the underground hip-hop culture. Now with their debut release "Microchips" being reissued by CommonWealth Records/Long Range Distribution, Clokworx once again will bring verbal assault over neckbreaking beats to world and embed themselves in the foundation of hip-hop. "Microchips also features production by D-Tension, Celph titled, Elektro4, Ray Fermandes and guest spots by Sage Francis, Vocab, Elements, and Produx.
