Editors’ Notes

Coming out of Washington D.C., Panacea have been putting out compelling, mellow, and positive hip-hop ever since their excellent 2004 debut Thinking Back, Looking Forward. On their fifth full-length, they serve up another batch of smoothly funky compositions loaded with smart wordplay and imaginative production. K-Murdock's beats are loaded with non-traditional drum patterns, thick low-end, dreamy synths, and lush jazz loops, while Raw Poetics' densely packed vocals often dance around the beat, with an unusual cadence and roller coaster flow impossible to compare to anyone else. Clearly influenced by golden- era crews like Native Tongues, they still bring their own style to the table, and are about as far removed from the money/guns/hoes vibe as you can get. While not extraordinarily groundbreaking, lyric-wise, 12 Step Program is a fresh and enjoyable listen with a few real gems. Check out "Immortal," "Texas Jigsaw Massacre," “The Long Pull,” and "Blue Ocean Wave."

Producer K-Murdock was born and raised in D.C. and had worked with R&B singers Bilal and Raheem DeVaughn before hooking up with Philadelphia MC Raw Poetic. With Poetic's easygoing flow fitting perfectly over Murdock's soulful beats, the two decided to become a team. When Poetic made the move to D.C., Panacea was...
