No Ripcord

A collection of samples, sounds and voices so incredibly diverse and ambitious, a record so completely all-in, is rare.

Beats Per Minute

As a hip hop effort, Quakers is one of the most consistently refreshing albums in recent memory.


The album itself is a behemoth that takes some listening dedication to unwrap and to assign meaning to - and it's an effort that's well worth it.

The 405

This is recommended for purists of the genre, a fun throwback which won't be imitated again this year.


Ambitious messes are the best kind, and riding out the less-interesting moments is worth it in the long run.


 If you like your rap homespun, rich, physical and all ‘summer-in-NYC ’95’, it’s a dream.

Consequence of Sound

As with any project this exhaustive, Quakers is rather hard to swallow in one sitting. 

At a whopping 41 tracks, it would be impossible to maintain the blunt impact and quality control of the opening 7 tracks. Oh, but if it could, QUAKERS would score an easy 100.
