Halftooth Records Presents: Wordsworth -- Mirror Music: The Deluxe Edition

"Wordsworth's latest is so good it's almost hard to describe - an indie hip-hop classic."
--Music Connection

"Oddisee may be the best producer in Hip-Hop that you probably don't know yet."

Since its initial commercial release in 2004, and following its unprecedented critical success, unsurpassable achievements on urban radio, and phenomenal reception by fans, press, DJs and taste-makers alike, Wordsworth's Mirror Music is back and better than ever! Due to popular demand, Halftooth Records is reissuing the classic debut album from Wordsworth with a fresh and exciting twist. Mirror Music: The Deluxe Edition is the definitive version of the certified-classic Hip-Hop album from the Brooklyn-bred microphone fiend Wordsworth. Now packaged as a limited edition 2-disc set, Mirror Music: The Deluxe Edition includes the entire 20-track original Mirror Music album from Wordsworth with guest appearance from Masta Ace, Punchline, Oddisee and Kenn Starr and production by Ayatollah, Da Beatminerz, Oddisee and more, PLUS a special bonus CD entitled Oddisee Presents The Mirror Music Remixes, featuring 10 exclusive Mirror Music remixes by producer extraordinaire Oddisee.

Mirror Music demonstrated a growth in Wordsworth's patented swagger; the wordsmith does more than just brag on the new album - he gives personal insight and spits narratives that reflect everyday life without glorifying street living. Mirror Music appeals to anyone who appreciates a true sure flow. "Nothing good to say keep silent/Cause the things that I wouldn't want to say you keep rhyming/Keep firing, I seek like a missile heat guided/And I'm so hot I'm a be on top cause heat rises," Wordsworth rhymes on first single "Gotta Pay," urging MCs that "Y'all don't need to dumb it down, y'all dudes is dumb already."

Since producing and performing the hit track "Musik Lounge" for DJ Jazzy Jeff's The Magnificent LP in 2002, Wordsworth's Halftooth Records label-mate, Amir "Oddisee" Mohamed has quickly become a rising star in Hip-Hop and an artist to keep your eye on as both a producer and emcee extraordinaire. Since turning his focus towards Hip-Hop in 1999, Oddisee has worked with the likes of Gary Shider of Parliament and Funkadelic, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Talib Kweli, J-Live, Wordsworth, Little Brother, Freddie Foxxx, Asheru, The UN, The Visionaries and many other respected recording artists around the world. In addition, Oddisee received a tremendous amount of attention and critical acclaim for his stand-out performances and production work on albums such as DJ Jazzy Jeff's The Magnificent, Halftooth Records' You Don't Know the Half, J-Live's The Hear After, Kev Brown's I Do What I Do, and The Foreign Exchange's Connected.

On Oddisee Presents The Mirror Music Remixes Oddisee recrafted certain songs with his own unique and mesmerizing style, emerging from the lab with his own distinctive version of Mirror Music with an entirely new vibe and a refreshing musical and emotional landscape far different from the original. Oddisee carefully constructed entirely new beats to enhance and complement Wordsworth's lyrics, even adding his own lyrics to certain songs, ultimately creating genuine new musical compositions. Wordsworth's unparalleled rhyming abilities and word-play matched with Oddisee's sensational production style is a triumphant combination that will be listened to and appreciated for many years to come. With a combined total of 30 tracks, Mirror Music: The Deluxe Edition is a truly special collection of music that is sure to please both those fans who already have the original album version and those who do not.

Oddisee is available for interviews regarding Mirror Music: The Deluxe Edition, as well as his recent and upcoming releases on Halftooth Records, including The Remixture- Vol. 1 & Oddisee's Instrumental Mixtape - Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
