Welcome to our review of veteran UK Producer/Artist Configa's debut album with SlamJamz Records.
We introduce to you "#CV1" i.e. the "Configaration Volume 1" album.
This release is the culmination of Configa's twenty plus years of dedication to his craft and his ongoing battle to preserve & elevate hip-hop culture in these dire times of much needed awareness. Respect is certainly due to Configa for his passionate purpose & the dreams that he hasn't let go unrealized.
Throughout the entire album, Mr. Chuck D & other contributing artists let it be known that Configa's time for recognition is well overdue. A sublimely unique, untethered and emotion invoking affair from start to end, "Configaration Volume 1" will stand out, going forwards, among the greatest albums of recent times in the eyes of many.
As Mr. Chuck D quotes KRS One in the second interlude, "You Must Learn".
The first full length music video released from this album is a remix from the Hastility H1 album released August 29th, 2016.

This isn't your typical label debut, there isn't a "tried and tested" tired old format here. Four of his raw instrumentals are showcased along with two remixes; "Mind Control" mentioned above & "Yes Yes Y'all" by Grand Surgeon x Spoonie Gee.
Great versatility is shown by Configa with the direction of featured artists ranging from female R&B artist Sulpacio Jones to the UK's Si Phili, Fdot1 and Serocee representing on a dancehall tip. New York's legendary Craig G, is featured on "From The Soul"; and Massachusettes' underground sensation Reks, features on "I Am The Truth". Not to mention two amazing tracks from the dearly departed John Vietnam & the main attraction sure to captivate most; "Make Em' Pay" with an exclusive verse from the late, great Sean Price & Green Tank.
