Ziggurat Records//FLOSSED IN SPACE Tour

Ziggurat Promo, Designed by Infamous JeanClaude

Lifted Lab aims to keep you visually stimulated, inspired, and awakened through the artists we promote. Our goal is also to boost conscious, PROGRESSIVE ideas as our worlds changes more rapidly, and remind you of your creative potential.
Your thoughts shape the world.

two MCs and a producer who come together to form the intergalactic super hero team that is Ziggurat Records. ZIGGURAT RECORDS is pushing a similar movement through their music, carrying themes such as: creation, science, metaphysics, the Cosmos, ancient societies, aliens, rebirth, good ol' fashioned hustling, and progress. 

Call it occult...call it conspiracy...or call it reality. Whatever you believe, after listening to Ziggurat's well-thought debut album, FLOSSED IN SPACE, you just might be pondering new possibilities. They've got a fresh blend of hip-hop and electronic music, and a powerful stage presence that could outshine their recorded material.

There couldn't be a more appropriate collaboration for their album art than with Lifted Lab's INFAMOUS JEANCLAUDE. Ziggurat connected with JeanClaude in 2011 to begin working on ideas, resulting in designs for the Flossed In Space album, "Papaya Rap"single, "SWISHRRR" single, and Ziggurat promo stickers.

The word "ziggurat" comes from  ancient Mesopotamia, referring to the architects and builders who constructed rectangular stepped temples, similar to the Egyptian pyramids. Ziggurat Records represents the power to BUILD and CREATE.

Hudson Mohawke x Ced Hughes x Infamous JeanClaude

Virginia based rapper, Ced Hughes, bravely decided to take the chaotic future beats from producer Hudson Mohawke's first album, Butter, and add his original raps over them for an EP entitled "Margarine." Infamous JeanClaude took care of the album art, which is also inspired by Butter. Make sure to give this a listen...guaranteed to put some new flavors in your ears!

Our homey from the BK, Cloud, just got a nice look from Pitchfork's "Forkcast," which pays a heavy compliment to his production skills and makes note of his Dilla-esque beat styles. Cloud has been dropping under-the-radar tapes for a couple of years now, so you may not have heard of him yet...but this kid is about to BLOW UP. All of his tapes are available for free through his Myspace and also feature the creative collaborations with Infamaous JeanClaude on the album art. I really can't stress how sick this guy is...download ASAP, you won't be able to push pause. Cloud's first full-length album, "Judge Wise," will drop later this year.
