Background

Huntington Beach, California's HED p.e. (the p.e. stands for “planet earth") was founded in 1994 by front man Jahred (a.k.a. M.C.U.D., a.k.a. Jerred Shaine), whose goal was to fuse the region's long-standing punk rock heritage with G-funk-inflected hip-hop -- a sound he labeled "G-punk." Three years and a self-financed 1995 E.P. entitled Church of Realities later, HED p.e. (also comprising lead guitarist Wesstyle , rhythm guitarist Chizad, bassist Mawk, drummer B.C. and DJ Product on turntables and samples) released their eponymous debut through Jive Records, then hit the road with Ozzfest and bands like Korn, Static-X, and System of a Down. A second album, Broke, followed in the year 2000, and a third, Blackout, in 2003, after which HED p.e. switched labels from Jive to Koch, and underwent something of an overhaul (welcoming new guitarist Jaxon and drummer Moke) prior to recording their fourth album, 2005's Only in Amerika.

"'Back To Base X' is a decent effort for fans of this style of music, but I don't foresee new fans of other styles of music being converted by this album."
