    Hyjak has returned in 2013, this time with his first solo studio album entitled The Light at the End of the Tunnel.
    Not having released anything since 2009 in the form of Hyjak N Torcha‘s Unregrettable, Hyjak has been feeling the pressure of standing on his own two feet as a solo artist. Nevertheless, he returns to the fold more focused and lyrically articulate than ever.

    Only a few seconds into the album Hyjak has already laid his cards on the table, dissecting his own faults while simultaneously rising above them. Hyjak‘s most honest autobiographical work to date; The Light at the End of the Tunnel is an emotional roller-coaster ride. With lyrics which paint vivid and evocative pictures, Hyjak recreates past experiences through his lyrics.

    With production from a vast assortment of producers, the impressive list includes Ciecmate (Broken Tooth Entertainment), Pokerbeats (Germany), and Jolistics (TZU).
    Guest vocalists featured on the album such as P. Smurf (Daily Meds), Hau (Koolism), and Brooklyn native Rock from Heltah Skeltah (Bootcamp Click), emphasize the widespread respect Hyjak has earned over the course of his rap career.

    With an excessive amount of music being released in the current industry climate, due to the accessibility of producing software and the rise of the DIY ‘bedroom studio’, Hyjak wanted to give his fans an album which stands out from the rest. With that aim, The Light at the End of the TunnelThe LP was carefully engineered and crafted a large format console, using nothing but world-class analogue and digital gear to create a timeless sound.
