Biography
You can hear things differently from the left side of the train tracks at 4 a.m. on a morning in Queens, New York. Your thoughts mix with the sounds of a city waking up, systems recharging, bread trucks and milk trucks and garbage trucks, tai chi in the china town projects; everything seems clearer at the break of day. Bisc1 finds that sound, the sound of your mind negotiating with the dawn.

At age 18, Bisc1 rolled over the Connecticut border into NYC and woke up to the gritty grind of urban turbulence. Steadily sneaking through the back streets into subway stations where the trains don’t run, he kept his ears to the ground and his eyes on the art. From his Basics EP, to his mixtape, The Stay Up Project and now When Electric Night Falls, Bisc1 has consistently captured the full dynamic dichotomy of our chaotic reality. He constructs precise, honest commentary with his narratives, his images, and his collaborations. Digging below the surface, capturing concepts is what Bisc1 does best; explaining why he has become the go-to graphic artist for packaging those concepts, working with such artists as Aesop Rock, The Perceptionists, Blockhead, C-Rayz-Walz, DJ Signify, Vast Aire and Mighty Mi, Murs, RJD2, Mathematics (Wu-Tang), Slow Suicide Stimulus, DJ Ese, El-P, and more. He has once again designed his own album cover, masterfully mixing wild style handwork with his digital perceptions. Hip-hop induced insomnia has driven him to create audio & visual art that appeals to the early birds, the night owls, and all creatures in between. As inspired by live performance as he is by studio work, he has rocked stages from “Bushwick to Bangkok” with the likes of: KRS-One, Jeru the Damaja, Black Sheep, The Beatnuts, Souls of Mischief, R.A. The Rugged man, Mr.Lif, C-Rayz Walz, DJ Signify, Dooley-O, True Skool Kings, and Tame One. 

When Electric Night Falls was created in the evening, developed with the electricity that breaks our perception of time and allows us to survive off more than just the sun's energy. Hip-hop is an electric culture. Without electricity there would be no turntables. No turntables, no DJ. No third rail, no subways, which means the train culture of graffiti would not exist. We plug our mic in and channel our voices through electrical wires. In the city it's an electric night that falls. The day begins as the day ends, looking toward the evening ahead, it follows the mind through a night of creation, compassion, comparison and congestion, only to wake up from a world of chaos. In the end, the thought of leaving is explored, but like every other day the cycle continues and other options are developed. For Bisc this is music; it is art; it is creative expression to release the energy, the electricity built up in him that must be discharged.

This poetic deconstruction speaks to life in the balance of our extremes, our failures and our successes, our conflicts and our peace. Bisc1 whispers to mayhem and she sleeps soundly. An artist that sounds so gritty and stays so up is an artist with a reservation in your daily sound track.
 
When Electric Night Falls Story
 
As nighttime falls over the cityscape, the record begins. Slowly, the moonlight casts its shadows and the electric lights take their place. They guide us between the end of daylight and the beginnings of a new evening's energy. "Night Fall" is an introduction to the record itself, a hello to the hours in which the day's reflection sets in, and a welcome into the creative hours for those who thrive off the power of nighttime. As the record moves forward, the mirrors take shape. Beginning with the "Turbulence" of the past days decisions. Balancing the personal choices with those outcomes that are seen from a spectator’s view in "Parallels". Comparing personal highs and lows with those absorbed throughout the afternoon shuffle. 
 
With the changing of the clocks hands, the appreciation of survival is noted on "Pandemonium". No matter how dark it gets
