NYC production/emcee trio The Manorail have released their first official single “Habitat”. Available as a free download via soundcloud (link below) the track features hardbody bars courtesy of Punchline and Sadat X.Composed of Shish, Atrane & Sed the trio aims to capture the boom bap hip-hop sound of their youth in New York City in the 90’s. Raised in the Rutgers Houses projects, Shish and Atrane (who are actually brothers) met with fellow resident, emcee / producer Fokis.
The Manorail have assembled a lengthy body of work while working behind the scenes. The group started to get some notoriety outside of their circle when they scored the music for one of the longest, most famous hip hop theater productions called “Platanos and Collard Greens.” Now The Manorail is teaming with Fokis label, Loyalty Digital Corp to release their catalog of music that goes back to the early 90’s as well as some new material.
