Wordsworth and Pearl Gates - Champion Sounds (Digital)
Wordsworth and Pearl Gates navigate through tragedy and triumph with musical moxie on Champion Sound. Having previously collaborated on various projects (Wordsworth solo albums, eMC), this effort allows their familiarity to sonically take shape in ways, both complimentary and dynamic.
This thirteen song, Quincy Tones-produced ensemble evokes the spirit of quintessential east coast hip-hop while elaborating stylistically beyond its boundaries. Quincy Tones, born and raised in West London, has produced for Royce Da 5’9 (Dinner Time), Jay Electronica and Diddy (Ghost of Christopher Wallace), Fashawn (Man of the House), and eMC (Winds of Change).
Quincy Tones describes his sound as melodic, soulful, and emotional. Champion Sound is an honest journey into the human experience; traveling through captivating melodies, stellar drum loops and witty lyricism at the speed of life. Guest features include the legendary Kool G. Rap, Talib Kweli, Rasheed Chappell, and eMC affiliate Masta Ace. As Wordsworth says on the album titled track Champion Sound, “Title Contenders and Rivals surrender’”.
