Portland emcee Tope is a busy man. In addition to being an in-demand beatsmith for other rappers, he also holds it down as a member of local groups Living Proof and TxE. On top of all that, he finds time for solo projects, the latest being Until the Next Time We Meet, whose release is being celebrated tonight. The fact that Tope is the only hiphop artist signed to local label Amigo/Amiga Recordings is a testament to his work uniting the local hiphop and indie-rock worlds—a marriage that also sees tonight's hiphop bill augmented by the Angry Orts. Until the Next Time We Meet is Tope's most mature recording to date, a mellow but hype meditation on love and relationships with strong thematic parallels to the classic '70s soul records he has sampled and championed.
