Tonedeff is reinventing the album release. As we have evolved into an ADD nation, Tone has evolved with us. With his latest release, he brings us the Glutton EP. The first of 4 stylistically different EPs that together become his sophomore album, Polymer. Each EP consists of 5 songs, and will be available on bandcamp at the low low price of "name your own price." So you can grab it for free, you can contribute whatever you feel, or (and this is where it gets fun), you can pre-order the full Polymer CD/DVD now, giving you access to the first 3 digital EPs as they are released, and the exclusive 4th EP only available in the physical format to those who pre-order. And Tone will only be pressing as many copies as are pre-ordered, so if you want a piece of QN5 history, get your pre-order in now!

PRE-ORDER STANDARD or DELUXE EDITION: Tonedeff - Polymer Pre Order

I've been on the fence with Chance the Rapper, but his last two singles (juice) and now this have pretty much sold me. This time around he's working with the Seattle heavy hitter Jake One.
Chicago's Joey Purp wrecks havoc on this Thelonious Martin beat. For the better part of a minute he tears into this in a sort of Madlib and Doom fashion.

The Black Raider Klan movement continues to grow. It's a trip watching these youngin's develop their sound and get better with each new release. This time around it's Memphis' own Chris Travis turn. This is a pretty damn awesome release. If you're looking for a jump off point to delve into the BRK movement, this would be a great project to start with.
I've been telling everyone that was willing to listen about the potential of this album & it looks like that hype train just may be just. Adrian Younge is point blank, a musical enigma. If you haven't had the time to delve into the mans work do yourself a favor and go get your hands on Venice Dawn and Something About April. Anyways it was announced a few months back that Younge had linked up with Ghostface Killah and would release 12 Reasons to Die. Here goes the first single, which just so happens to be incredible. This project will be momentous.

If you've been following my post over the years, you may know that I'm a huge Lee Bannon supporter. Over those years he's went from the soulful sample based production from Me & Marvin to chop heavy instrumentalist on Box of Toys 1&2, to this gritty & dark stylings on this nod to the BRK movement.

With labels like Daptone, Numero, and Now Again, the Soul/Funk revivalist movement continues to move along. In 2011, with the release of No Time for Dreaming, Daptone introduced us to Charles Bradley, a former James Brown impersonator. His aged gritty vocals filled with raw passion and pain that came from a life of fighting for success in the music business quickly won over fans new and old. April 2nd Daptone and Bradley return for the follow up with Victim of Love. Here goes Strictly Reserved For You, the first single from the album.
