10 years after his debut
solo release, Dead Ott is back in 2013. Dead To The World E.P is the first of a
trilogy of free releases from Dead Ott, one half of UK hip hop collective Styxmen.
E.P is fully produced by D-O, and is mainly a solo affair. The other half of Styxmen,
Prophit, joins D-O on 'Back Again', while 'Show Me The Way' features the vocal talents
of a well known Oxford songstress going under the alias of Little Girl. All the
tracks were produced at Flow Po Row during 2011-12 and recorded with UK legend
Chemo at Kilamanjaro Studios in March 2013.
The next E.P will feature beats
from Dead Ott's favourite producers including Chemo, Runone and many more...

"Underground collective known as Styxmen from Oxford and are putting out a lot
of material, good material I might out. They're back in 2013 with a brand new EP
available for free download titled 'Sack O' Styx' featuring a total of 6 tracks!
The EP features a debut from Rosie Saunders who'll you'll be hearing a lot more
from in the future, production has been handled by Prophit, Dead Ott and a guest
producer White Key.
The EP is overall a great look for Styxmen and is cementing them as one of our favourite
duo's on the rise, they pack a lot of enthusiasm in their music, always experimenting
and pushing themselves on every track. Our personal favourite from the EP has got
to be 'As Bad As It Seems' featuring Rosie Saunders and Mogul creating an extremely
relaxing and progressive track pumping positivity through the airwaves. Check the
EP out below and get your Free copy from the Styxmen!" Undergroundhh.com
"Styxmen bring you fresh homegrown
hip hop with an individual sound.
This track lifted off their new free EP is produced by White Key Productions, who
i hadn't heard of before (make sure you check his soundcloud, he is ill).
He couples a well cut vocal sample with a simple boom bap beat perfectly, whilst
Prophit & Dead Ott describe how these girls drive them wild with sick flows
and well crafted verses, proving there is no need to change the tried and tested
formula for a sick hip hop banger with a catchy hook." Eddbun, Wordplay Blog
