Cor Stidak & Keor Meteor – Widespread Irregularity

“It began in early 2011 with a mutual Soundcloud respect and nods to each other’s skill and talent. That nod resulted in a collaboration, their first–the Keor Meteor produced and Cor Stidak penned roller, “Crown Chakra,” which appeared on the latter’s first album “Treatises of a Pendulum Slave.” The two joined forces again on Stidak’s sophomore effort, “Past the Sun and Moon” and again crafted a slick underground classic, “Nothing To Seek.” The plan and intention had been, from that point, to build a complete project of well crafted music that would make their “peers proud but also to put an indelible stamp on this game” with their own original hip hop and unique focus. For those who waited patiently, or were mildly curious or indifferent..wait no more. From VA to Paris to the UK and straight to the soul, Cor Stidak, Keor Meteor and Pragmatic Theory offer “Widepsread Irregularity.” There are cameos by Virginia emcees El RaSun and Cordova on the tunes, “Pearls” and “Elixirs,” respectively. Stidak trades bars with two underground generals, New Jersey emcee Light and Slim Pickens from Boston on the wildout “Triangle Choke.” And with a styled out nod to roaring ’20’s cool, the lovely and uber talented Alexandra Bautista makes you fall in love with her creamy yet edgy soul stylings as she pairs with Stidak and Meteor on the polished, “Vermillion.” Clearly, the guys haven’t forgotten or neglected one of the essential hip hop elements–the DJ, as there is also some fine turntablism […]

Life (Compilation)

There definitely was a passion for us to also work with just as massively talented emcees and their story telling. The growth in our audience and support has given an opportunity for Pragmatic Theory to expand on physical releases and although our releases have gained more time before another with our last mc comp being a bit over a year ago, we are working behind the scenes with concepts to share with you all. We have mad love for the community we are involved with. Stay with us, stay tuned , we have more in store to share. Please enjoy Life by artists we have love and appreciation for …. One Love.

Jasper Sommer – Enter The Woods EP

Jasper Sommer “a reclusive naturist with an idealistic vision to change the landscape of the world we live in today with his music and art. Spawned from the depths of Derbyshire, Sommer has attained a multifarious skill-set that has helped him mould the unorthodox, underlying framework of his music.” His latest material Enter: The Woods EP released in conjunction with Push Crayons and Pragmatic Theory, was crafted with the intentions of inspiring change and thought, unveiling the illusions he believes will then awaken us to the truths of the universe through the experience taken by the musical journey he is offering.

Venomous2000 – Will to Power

WILL to POWER” Is Venomous2000’s 9th solo full length album/project. The meaning behind the name of this particular project derives from his personal belief in the Human ability to achieve great things. He felt that this album should focus on integrity, ambition, strength, wisdom, skill, and achievement. Every day we are faced with life challenges and make choices to allow these obstacles to stifle or invigorate our self development. This album is a call to all listening, to step up, wake up, and contribute to this life experience with your very best energy! Venomous wants people to walk away feeling like they’ve added something to their lives, and can then share that ‘thing’ with others. We feel blessed and fortunate to be able to share his artistic views with fans of all walks of life. Venomous2000 “Will To Power” CD’S by clicking here. T-Shirts available by clicking here.

Raw Theory : California (LTD Edition 12″ Vinyl)

RAW THEORY corresponds with the inevitable, if not pre-destined, phenomena in which two avant-garde beat movements collide with one another. UK based label, Pragmatic Theory, and Northern California’s imprint, RAW DATA, have both alternated releases of iconic compilations since 2012. “RAW THEORY: California” is the first joint venture between the two camps with a focus on Californian beat-makers and their unique and diverse offerings, from the comfortably progressive to the classically trained blaps. This is the first of two volumes. Pragmatic Theory and RAW DATA (PTXRD) are proud that all the profits from this release will be donated to the local homeless shelter and food bank of Modesto Gospel Mission – https://modestogospelmission.org/ We’d like to thank Ikabod Bum for the hard work he put in to this project & to all the artists who were kind enough to submit their music. Without you all this would never have been possible.
