Sadistik is not just another rapper, he’s an artist in the deepest sense of the word. Hailing all the way from the scenic gloom of Seattle, Washington, Sadistik has quickly gained the hearts and ears of listeners by opting for a more personal and heartfelt brand of music. By combining caustic honesty, lyrical wit and technical innovation, Sadistik has crafted a sound that he can truly call his own while circumventing the limiting cliches of rap music. His lyrical endeavors are not without the help of some of the most talented producers in the underground scene, however, as he’s worked with the likes of Emancipator, Kno (of CunninLynguists), and Blue Sky Black Death.Additionally, some of underground rap’s most revered wordsmiths such as Tech N9ne, Eyedea, CunninLynguists and Sage Francis round off an impressive list of artists who have joined him on a track. Add a rigorous international touring schedule, and becoming a hometown favorite in recent years joining larger acts such as Lupe Fiasco and Slaughterhouse, and you have a strong force on the indie rap scene.
The day after Sadistik finished recording his critically acclaimed album Flowers For My Father, he began writing his most recent release, Ultraviolet. With a head full of acid, left field 60s & 70s cinema and palpable frustration with the world around him, Sadistik took an unabashed nose dive into the subconscious mind, releasing a three dimensional portrait painted in hues of psychosis and psychedelia. Drawing on his background in clinical psychology and cinematic predilections, he created a richly layered world of his own and offered the listener a passing glimpse through the keyhole.
