What happens when you combined the two most ingenuous creative artist/producers in the hip-hop world again, "The Gene Pool" EP They've done it again! Super Producers/emcees Illastr8ed and Grand Architect isolated the basic elements that made the first Ep, "The Strain" such a success and enhanced that specific material. This time around the recording process was completed with lightning quickness with all 7 tracks done in the 7 days leading up to 4/20/2014. Double Helix unifies that incredible productivity and genuinely comes through proving the duo is capable of achieving musical goals. These artists strive to recapture the true essence of feeling inspired to make music. That part seems to come so natural, now the team focuses on incorporating more and more rhyme bending challenges. Songs like, 'It Doesn't Take Much' and 'Give It Up' has the unsurpassed quality necessary to have significant replay value.

The Gene Pool is a classic analogy to display the blending of our people. Now the meaning takes on a whole new identity by using Hip Hop as a platform. DH has honed in on combining the correct amount of experience and expertise. Now a day there seems to be a stagnant diluted sense of quality passing off as radio worthy, so in turn Double Helix releases "The Gene Pool" album to challenges the usual music selection. Also this marks the first occasion Grand Architect and Illastr8ed release a FREE downloadable album solely featuring the Double Helix. All the ingredients come together into "The Gene Pool" so take the plunge and dive right in, Cook Book Records also join forces with Mega label Darkstarz Records to ensure to the most widespread release to date. Invading multiple sites mid July, be on the lookout for the release on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, YouTube and much more! Absolutely FREE or Donations Welcome,
