Distorted Dreams, released by Cold Busted, is an instrumental album by Swedish beatmaker Mac Dusty. This beat tape, produced on the MPC3000, is full of bass-driven Hip Hop instrumentals and is strictly limited to 100 copies.
ANGELS DUST is producer Psychopop & singer Flavia. In June 2015 HIT+RUN released their mesmerizing debut EP ‘Slow Tapes’ [HNR48], six moody songs swathed in grainy reverb and dense production. Critics praised Angels Dust’s hazy sound & haunting vocal stylings, bracketing their psychedelic dream pop alongside Portishead, Broadcast, Mazzy Star & Beach House. In Summer 2015, four vocal tracks were passed to select producers (Dntel, Elusive, Tenshun, Esgar, Coto, Mystery Cave, Walter Gross, Giovanni Marks, Citizen Ten, Sinking Swimmer, Graveline, Gato & Chitlins) to reinterpret in their own method. The consequence of these inspired individuals is ‘Musings’ [HNR59] a 16-song compilation album featuring eleven remixes, four unreleased songs and a rare live track. Available on limited-edition slimline CD [containing the BONUS Music Video for “Funeral” Directed by Thomas McMahon], Cassette tape [featuring BONUS Track “Funeral’ (CHITLINS)] and digital downloads worldwide. Only 100 of each made!
2016 marks the long-awaited debut album from New York’s Flatbush Zombies. Following in the footsteps of acclaimed mixtape predecessors D.R.U.G.S. (2012) and Better Off Dead (2013), 3001: A Laced Odyssey is a career-defining album for the Brooklyn trio. Produced entirely by Erick “Arc” Elliott, the twelve-song opus features emcees Elliott, Meechy Darko, and Zombie Juice in prime form. The moody and introspective record – with flourishes of their trademark dark humor - is what their legions of diehard fans have come to expect. Non-album promo track “Glorious Thugs” set the tone for the project, garnering over 1.7 million streams in less than one week. To best capture these larger than life personalities, the group enlisted the services of David Nakayama (Marvel Adventures, Deadpool, Avengers AI, Big Hero 6) to create their epic comic book LP cover.
