Sadistik is not just another rapper, he is an artist in the most honest sense of the word. Hailing all the way from the scenic gloom of Seattle, Washington, Sadistik has quickly gained the hearts and ears of listeners by opting for a more personal and heartfelt brand of music by carefully circumventing the limiting cliches of rap music. By combining caustic honesty, clever wit and technical innovation, Sadistik has crafted a sound that he can truly call his own. While his writing style tends to be his signature, it not without the help of some of the most talented producers in the underground scene including multi-instrumentalist Emancipator, Blue Sky Black Death and Kno from The Cunninlynguists. From his work with such talented producers, Sadistik has created a signature of unpredictable and complex song structures draped with densely layered combinations of intricate sample work and live instruments that's more reminiscent of a Radiohead structure than a timeworn rap formula. Sadistik's collaborations are not limited only to the instrumental scene, however, but also some of underground rap's most revered wordsmiths such as Eyedea, Cage, Mac Lethal and Sage Francis, to name a few.
