A 12 track underground rap/hip-hop album (8m 54s) — released February 7th 2020 on Compost

C.O.W. are back. In fact they were never gone. Having released two iconic features with the likes of Alxndr London (UK) and Hatsune Miku (JP) following the success of their previous $hanghai Mone\ EP, the German-Chinese producer collective finally delivers their long-awaited first album. Being a true child of the digital world, what better name could they have chosen than the one of their very own genre: INTERNET.

But it wouldn't be C.O.W. if there wasn't a catch to it. A conceptual twist. Something deeper.

The internet is a place of uncountable content, phenomenon and impressions. However, in the worldview of the collective all of these can be comprised into four elements: EPIC, FURY, LOVE and DRUGS. A philosophical concept turned album. Four elements that define our surrounding, our tasteand opinion-makers, our filterbubbles and echo-chambers. We all know and experience them when traveling through that fantastic space.


Like turning from praise to hate, from excitement to sadness within a few clicks, so will the album take you on a journey through all these elements, all those feelings within the collectives mind-blowing productions.

C.O.W. are back, but - like content in the Internet - they've always been there, you only needed to look for them.
