Episode 26B: Freetime Synthetic

Emcee Freetime Synthetic is a trailblazer for live hip-hop in Spokane. He started rapping with punk-pegged Upper Class Racket in bars like Mootsy’s and Fort Spokane in the mid-90s. After UCR split, Synthetic kept performing solo and continues to rhyme over instrumentals made by his old Upper Class cohort Erick Beats. Synthetic’s long-awaited solo album will contain mostly self-made and Beats’ beats. He’s rocked on every kind of bill you wouldn’t expect him to — metal, punk, acoustic — and has collaborated like a chameleon with most rappers in the local scene. From his style to his philosophy, Synthetic’s approach is utterly free of form.
