Eighty4 Fly / Press

“That northwest fresh for #MixTapeMonday Eighty 4 Fly is an up and comer on the northwest scene. “Like Planes” officially made this dude a mover and shaker for Seattle. 1st Class In Fly World features some of the towns usual suspects: Spac3man, Grynch, J Pinder. But kick back and watch Eighty4Fly’s Hip Hop Shit video while riding in first class”

“Eighty4 Fly single "Seattle Girls," an electro-infused hip-hop anthem that our fair city deserves--and strikes me as the equally primed polar opposite of Ludacris's "Area Codes."”

“So I just recently got put on to this dude, I'm upset that I took so long to post this up so here ya go. DJ B-Mello hosts Eighty4's latest project which features appearances by fellow locals Grynch, Spaceman, J. Pinder & Sean Carson. Don't sleep on this dude, be sure to follow him on Twitter too @Eighty4Fly.”

“After years of listening to Seattle hip hop that always felt distinctly Seattle it's exciting to hear artists from the town making tracks that just scream "play me." The EP worked at showing some diversity from Eigthy4 Fly, the tape is more one minded but we all need something to spark up too thats knocking.”

“Listening to everything from The Fray to Crystal Castles, Eighty4 Fly doesn’t look to typical hip-hop influences. But then again, he isn’t about to be tied down by the term “rapper.” He’s an artist, a rock star trapped in a hip-hop artist’s body”

“Lead single “So Cool” is emblematic of all that both works and fails with the EP. The production on The Project is uniformly great, no more so than here. “So Cool” is an understatement — the Tom Davids concoction is downright icy, with sublime guitar wails yearning over metallic synth drops.”

“A lot of groups have tried to make a more accessible style of music in the town and few have really seen the kind of success the music implies. I have no crystal ball, but Eighty4 Fly is doing things the right way and if he keeps creating product like this he will do what he wants in his musical career.”

“Eighty4 is all about mainstream appeal from mellow cruiser "Sunset Blvd" to "Until We Bleed" featuring XXL Freshman 10's Nipsey Hussle at the very least, one (or a handful) of these tracks definitely deserve to close out an episode of Entourage.”

“Eighty4 Fly may be a local artist he makes national music which has been absent in city for a long time. Like planes things are only looking up for this artist, all aboard “Flight Eighty4 Fly” as the city of Seattle has something to be excited about! ”
