Carta' P. & Parental - A Beautiful Mess 2xLP - 2019

"Carta’ P. aka “The Obvious Wonder” who hails from the talent rich city of Mount Vernon, NY debuts with his full length solo album “A Beautiful Mess”. 

In collaboration with french producer Parental, the two combine to mix melodic samples, strong baselines and infectious drums in conjunction with stories about women, relationships, life as an adult, money, children and family. The combination of Parental and Carta’ P. help produce a sound very similar to the 90’s “Golden Era of Hip Hop”. 

The entire project was produced by Parental and written by Carta’ P. over the span of two years. The two musical juggernauts collaborated and recorded over twenty songs together. Throughout the project, you can hear the musical chemistry along with the development of the album. 

Carta’ P. is part of the hip hop underground group ADAGIO! from the mid to late 90’s. A lot of the same musical influences and lyrical creativity from ADAGIO! can be heard through this latest collaboration."  

Written & Performed by Carta' P. (B. Pritchett), except "Too Many (Remix)" by Carta' P. & Breeze Brewin' (P. Smith)

All tracks produced by Parental (R. Besikian), except "Zoo" by Lex (de Kalhex) [A. Besikian]. Scratches [Cuts]: DJ Boo. Guitar [Additionnal]: Ferdinand Cros
