Monosapiens are Rik & Simon Arbuthnot, they started in 2001. Between them they play guitar, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards, samplers, and whatever else they can find lying around to make a noise with!

Their past notable releases include 'Hotblack EP' 12" vinyl 2001, 'Bad Robots LP' CD (2004), 'The Conspiracy LP' CD (2007), 'Labyrinth EP' 2013.

The band now bring you the Frequency' LP with rapper Conscious Route bringing a mix of Soul, Funk, Jazz, Hip-Hop and various other influences which are blended with organic instrumentation fused with samples.

The LP features long-time collaborator Chris Greive, aka Soundbone, on trombone and organ, and Jon Thompson, who also plays bass in the live band. The LP also features Edinburgh-based United Front MC/Producer, Sean El, and cuts on ‘Meteor Shower’ by DJ Sokol from Paraletic Universe, who is also Edinburgh based.

Conscious Route is the front man for this project, originally from England (between Cambridge and London), he started out Mossman Skank, later abbreviating his name to Mosman. He is a founder member of now dispersed hip hop crew Fugaizrum, who later became a cross-over Hip Hop and Blues band. He started to write hip hop in 1998, being influenced by names like Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Wu Tang Clan, Roots Manuva, Black Twang, Task Force, Terra Firma, Triple Darkness, Dr John, Eek-A-Mouse, Michael Franti, and Bob Dylan, which in turn all shaped his flow and sound on this diverse sounding album.

PAST LIFE I WAS BRANDED FOUND ME WALKING IN A SLEEP WALK,
PROBLEMS GOT HANDED FOUND ME DROWNING IN A DEEP THOUGHT,
PAST LIFE I WAS BRANDED FOUND ME WALKING IN A SLEEP WALK,
PROBLEMS GOT HANDED FOUND ME DROWNING IN A DEEP THOUGHT,

VERSE 1
SLEPT WALK SO MANY DAYS, TOUGHENED LIKE THE LEATHER STRAINT,
LIGHTER THAN THE FEATHER HAZE, GROUND DOWN TO FIGUREMENT,
THREATENED BY THE VILLAGE FOLK, POUNDED FAITH TO IGNORANT,
MADE MY SELF AN IDIOT, WALKING ROUND THE HOUSES NEVER DOUBTED I WAS OBSOLETE, DOING DRUGS TO ROB MY MIND TO FEED THE HABIT ROBBED THE STREETS, NEVER FELT ACCEPTED SO ROAD BECAME MY FAMILY, SOUL OUT IN THE COLD NEVER SHOWED MY VULNERABILITY , INSTEAD ADRENALINE DROVE EMOTIONAL HOSTILITY, ACTING LIKE A MILITARY, COULDN'T KID THE KIDDER BUT THE KID WAS CUNNING SCARED, HAD TO FIND ANOTHER ROUTE CAUSE NORMAL WASN'T THERE, HE STRUGGLES THAT I BARED WAS THE PROBLEMS OF A MAN,
NOBODY TO TEACH SO DEVISED A CHILDISH PLAN, I MADE IT ON MY OWN FAMILY AROUND ALWAYS HOME, FARTHER DIDN'T STAND RESPONSIBLE TO HOLD ME AS HIS OWN, BULLIED AT THE HOME ON ROAD BY RACIST TWATS, BUILT A BIG BRAVADO CAUSE THE CONFIDENCE WAS ZAPPED, THEY SAY BRITAIN MULTICULTURAL, IN-CONGRUENCE IS THAT, THEY MAY HAVE DIFFERENT CULTURES DO THEY ACCEPT THE DIFFERENCE, UNTIL I STARTED SCHOOL I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT DIFFERENCE IS, UNTIL SOMEBODY POINTED SAYING THAT BOY IS A BLACK, LEFT STANDING THINKING IS IT, IS CAUSE I'M THAT, AND WILL CHANGE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WAY OTHERS REACT, REACT

LIFE STYLE BROKEN OUT CYCLE NOW RUNNING THEM,
RACIST BIGOTRY MISPLACED HAVING NON OF THEM,
CONFIDENCE LOVE UP IN THE SOUL GOT TONE AGAIN,
LAUGHTER WORKING WITH THE CHILD HAVING FUN AGAIN,
DRAMA TROUBLES I SURVIVED I'M AT ONE WITH THAT,
FACE THE NIGHTMARES NAH IT AN'T EASY,
TO SHOW WHAT GWAN IN THE DEPTH OF THE SOUL,
HANDLE HOSTILE NOT RUN AWAY,
SHOOT FOR THE STARS PUT THE GUN AWAY,
PROBLEMS ACCEPT NO REGRET, TROUBLES COME AWAY,
REAL MAN GOING THROUGH EMOTION, LIFE TEST HOW WE DEAL WITH COMMOTION, REGULAR MORE TRY HIDE, MORE THE TRUTH GET HEAVIER,
BREATH THROUGH THE HARDEST TIMES SHINE, MEDITATE FEARS AND TUSSLE ON THE MIND, RE-EDUCATE FIND MERCY WITH THE SOUL AT ONE, LEVITATE CLEAR THE TRUE LIGHT COME, MAN CERTAIN EVEN THOUGH THE FEARS HURTING MAN CERTAIN, TROUBLE THAT AFFECT LIFE WORKING, A CERTAIN, HAVE HOPE AND MERCY FOR MOST MAN, HEART HOLD THE LOVE AND DEVOTION, FORGIVENESS TRUTH BE THE POTION, PEACE IN A INNER MAN SOLE AT LEAST, LIKE AN OCEAN,
LIGHT SHINE OUT TO THE DARK OF ANOTHER, REACH OUT TRUE LIKE THE ARMS OF A LOVER, I'M CERTAIN EVEN THOUGH THE FEAR HURTING, MAN A CERTAIN TROUBLE THAT AFFECT LIFE WORKING A CERTAIN HAVE HOPE AND MERCY FOR MOST MAN HEART HOLD THE LOVE AND DEVOTION, I'M CERTAIN EVEN THOUGH THE FEARS HURTING I'M CERTAIN TROUBLE THAT AFFECT LIFE WORKING CERTAIN, HAVE HOPE AND MERCY FOR MOST MAN THAT'S WHY WE DON'T MERK MANS CERTAIN.
Track Name: 2. City Limits
LESS TIME ON THE EARTH THAN THEY UNDERSTAND, AN'T ABOUT THE PLANET NO MORE IT'S THE GALAXY, TRAPPED IN THE EGO HUMAN REALITY,
UNLESS WE GET BACK TO THE ELEMENTS WE'RE GONER DIE,
MANY TRUTHS HIDDEN IT'S LIES THAT PERSONIFY,
INHABITABLE PLANET, THAT'S WHERE WE'RE HEADING,
CARBON DIOXIDE AND THE METHANE SPREADING,
GREEN HOUSE GASSES THE MELTING OF THE ICE CAPS,
TSUNAMI FLANK THE ISLAND THE LIFE UNDER RAPID STRAIN,
INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION PLIGHT OF THE ACID RAIN,
FLOODING THE PEOPLE OUT HOPE AND THEIR MEMORIES,
HOPES ARE SMASHED NEVER CAN ASSEMBLE THESE,
CHEMICAL WAIST AND THE UNTREATED SEWAGE,
LIVE STOCK THEN ROLL UP AND COME DRINK THE FLUID,
EVEN UNDER SEAS THE KILLING OF THE CORAL REEFS,
PEEPS WARING WHORING FOR THE MONEY GREED...


WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE CROP POLLINATION,
AND BEES ARE DYING FAST FROM THE CHEMICALS THEIR SPRAYING,
THE ECHO SYSTEMS CRASHING AND DECAYING,
CUTTING THE FORREST THE BREEDING OF THE CATTLE, SCIENCE MUTATED GENETICALLY MODIFIED, TRYING TO FEED THE EVER GROWING POPULATION,
PROBLEMS MORE POVERTY ALLOWING MORE DEVASTATION, LACK COMMUNICATION THROUGH THE ELECTRIC WAVE GADGETS, IS A NUCLEAR PHASE,
HEALTH CONCERNS RISE UP THE COMING OF AGE, LED MERCURY DANGEROUS AND SO TOXIC, NOT FACTORED NUCLEAR WAIST LAND DUMPED BY THE REACTORS,
AND JUST HITTING SWITCHES YOU NEVER SEE THE TOTAL COST, OF WHEN WE FLY THE PLAN OR WHEN WE GET THE BOAT ACROSS, HEAD IS BURIED AND BODY FOLLOW, THROUGH THE IGNORANCE AND NONCHALANCE OF NON RESPONSE, JUST NONCHALANCE

THINK LIFE HARD AND NEVER FAIR, FOR SEE THE FUTURE OF THE CRISIS THEY BE SELLING AIR, ONLY BE THE WEALTHY WITH THE RIGHT TO BREATH,
MAYBE TIME TO FOCUS ON THE LIFE WE LEAD,
GOVERNMENT CITY HOMES SCHOOLS AND SHOPS,
TIME TO TAKE HEAD WHETHER THERE'S WALLS OR NOT,
WE ORIGINALLY ANIMALS AT ONE WITH THE LAND,
NOW DISCONNECTED ETHOS HAVE BECOME TO EXPAND,
SO MUCH THAT TRUTH AND RELATIVE, WE LIVE FOR SELF IGNORANCE,
MANY THAT NEGATIVE, DESTRUCTIVE DESTROYING THE HUMAN RACE,
THE CREATURES AROUND AND THE PLANETARY PLACE,
WE DIG DEEP CORE FRACKING THE RESOURCES,
TILL WE IN THE FLOOR WHEN HAPPEN NO REMORSE'S, THE CRIME ACTS TO CLIMAX TO COUNTERACT THE COUNTERFEIT WAYS, PETULANTLY KILLING EARTH LIKE A PLAGUE
Track Name: 5. Aerial Perspective
SEE THE STRAINS OF A LIFE NEW CONTENT SUDDENLY IT DOESN'T SEEM ALL IN VAIN,
FUNNY THOUGH BECAUSE IT FEELS NOTHINGS CHANGED, 
STILL SAME PROBLEMS MINDSET ATTITUDE BUT ALL UP IN THE MOMENT,
REFLECTION DEEMS CLEAR, NOT CONDITIONED BY THE TIME JUST CONNECTION TO UNIVERSE,
 PROJECT THE FEELING EUPHORIA I FELT CONSTELLATION PATTERNS RECOGNIZING ALL THE PAIN,
BY SOUL SEPARATED LIFE MY BODIES ON ANOTHER PLAIN,
NOT ATTACHED TO MATERIAL ESSENCE, FULLY ABSORBED FLOATING IN THE MATTER PRESENCE,
NOTHING ATTRACT DISINTEGRATE FROM THE HUMAN ANATOMY,
 WHY THOUGH THINK JARS TRYNA FIGURE OUT THE COMPOUNDS I SETTLE IN MY REALM OF THE DEALT TRANSLATION,ORBIT CALLIGRAPHY,
WORDS CAN'T EXPLAIN WHAT DID FOR ME, WORDS CANT EXPLAIN,
NOTHING YOU CAN HOLD IN THE TIME COLLAPSE HAS WORTH,
FIGURE THE MEMORY AND MIND IS A WEAPON AND CURSE IN THE WRONG HANDS,
LIFE FLOWS EXPERIENCE VALUES EMOTION ROTATE FOOD FOR THOUGHT SHOULD BE DISH RARE WITH NO PLATE,
LIKE CELESTIAL OUTING WHY SOLAR PEAKS GLARE IN THE SHADOWS OF THE SPACE,
GLARES IN THE SHADOW OF THE SPACE..


ARIEL PERSPECTIVE DEATHS NOT A NARROW TRACK,
MOTION PARALLAX SPIRITUALLY VERNACULAR, 
LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL THE UNIVERSE CONNECTING YA,
LIKE A STAR THRUST THOUGH THE NEBULAR,

ARIEL PERSPECTIVE DEATHS NOT A NARROW TRACK,
MOTION PARALLAX SPIRITUALLY VERNACULAR, 
LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL THE UNIVERSE CONNECTING YA,
LIKE A STAR THRUST THOUGH THE NEBULAR,

METAPHORICALLY WE ALL HAVE A CALLING,
LIFE TRANSMITS THROUGH THE SOUND OF THE SPIRIT,
IF THE SOULS OFF LINE THEN YOUR SIMPLY NOT HEARING,
WARP SPEED TAKE YOU TO ANOTHER DIMENSION,
CAN'T NAME OR SHAME WITH IT PAIN OF THE SENTIMENT,
CUTS OFF DETAIN INTELLIGENCE, LIFE ALIENATE REMAIN TERRESTRIAL GAIN NO EQUILIBRIUM, 
MUSIC CAPITULATES IN BLACK BODY SPECTRUM, PLECTRUM LIGHT MOTION, LIKE CELESTIAL SPHERES,
ELECTROMAGNETISM, FORMULATES REPRESSED MASSES LIKE PARTICLES, HYDROGEN DEUTERIUM,
NUCLEI TO FORM STABLE ATOMS, RELATIVITY IN MOTION THAT WE CANT FATHOM, PROPAGATES HATE DILATE THROUGH THE VACUUM,
GEOMETRY HARD TO MEASURE, FROM HEART FEEL THE IMPACT THE DARK AND PLEASURE, COORDINATE QUANTIFY TO OTHER IN THE RADIUS,
SUB-TONIC PARTICLES THE SELF NEVER GAUGED, THE SYMMETRY TO TRAVEL CYCLES WE ENDEAVOR, HYPOTHESIZED BY THE GREAT MINDED,
THEY TRIED TO PERFECT THE SENSE BEFORE THE EGO COLLIDED

THE BIG BANG THEORY THE LEGACY OF GOD WISE WORDS FROM THE PEASANT WITH THE LORD DIALOG 
THE BIG BANG THEORY THE LEGACY OF GOD WISE WORDS FROM THE PEASANT WITH THE LORD DIALOG
THE BIG BANG THEORY THE LEGACY OF GOD WISE WORDS FROM THE PEASANT WITH THE LORD DIALOG
JUST ARIEL PERSPECTIVE AN ARIEL PERSPECTIVE 

ARIEL PERSPECTIVE DEATHS NOT A NARROW TRACK,
