Hades - The Face Of A New Revolution - 1997

12" - 1997 - Millenium 2000 

"The Face Of A New Revolution" is a very rare record released in 1997 by the Florida-based MC named HADES (pronounced "HAYDS"). I don't have much info about him except that his real name is Vic Moreno. He was a dude from South Dade, Miami and wasn't affiliated with any groups as far as I know. He had a partner named Black Mexico, an aspiring producer who was tight with him and who also features on the 12".

The EP consists of 4 tracks entitled "Unstable Positions", "Krazy World", "Superstar" and "Dice Of Life". The productions were handled by DJ Slice, except "Superstar" which was produced by Black Mexico and which is, I have to say, the weakest track of the record... 

About DJ Slice, he was part of a group formed in the late 90s called The Mic-Row-Phonists, comprised of DJ Slice, J-Pure & Draz. He is also known for his productions for artists like Society and Mother Superia. The connection between Hades and him happened when he was a staff engineer at Ocean Drive Recording Studios on South Beach. Hades and his peeps came in to book studio time. After he found that DJ Slice was the producer for "Yes 'N Deed", he wanted beats from him and also to record there...

By the way... about Millenium 2000, it was a small indie record label managed by Hades's brother Mario. That's all I know ! Peace
