Detroit MCs E-fave (Emile Manette), Ilajide (Kortez Marion), J-Roc (Jarred Douglas), and L.A.Z. (Jarrel Lowman) produced Clear Soul Pushes in the wake of the spur-of-the-moment studio ending up in Motor Town rap veteran Royce da 5’9″. Through their Bandcamp web page, CSF issued several small-scale produces across 2010, 2011, and 2012, with some beats supplied by famous brands Detroit’s Jay Norm, Flint (Michigan) indigenous Nameless, Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke, and FLYamSam (aka Traveling Lotus and Samiyam, whose cooperation was originally noticed as an instrumental over the Ghostly Swim compilation). In March 2012, Crystal clear Soul Pushes released the record Detroit Trend(s). Offering 11 productions from Ilajide — the various other four tracks had been created or co-produced by Nameless, KanKick, and Ruler Midas — the established was offered being a pick-your-price Bandcamp download. The next month, the MCs had been showcased within a 12-minute documentary come up with by Crimson Bull Music Academy.
