Smokey Joe & the Kid

SMOKEY JOE & THE KID – The Game(Ep) – Out Now!!

Word up People!

Hope you’re having a good week so far and we’re gonna share some good tunes with you to make it even better…

I recently had the honour of checking out the new EP from Banzai Lab production duo Smokey Joe & The Kid called “The Game” and all I can say is WOW!! This EP is an incredible blend of multiple instruments, percussion, scratches and on point lyricism making up one hell of an EP that you simply can’t miss.
COVER_EP_RECTO
***
“In this project, Smokey Joe, Bordeaux’s main musical mafia head, and The Kid aka “Senbeï,” cheeky Parisian master of Turntablism, transport us back in time to the gangster run streets of 1930’s Chicago. These two gangsters mix Hip Hop and Electro with the groove and melodies of early 20th century Swing. Percussion solos played with scratches ,beats and melodies banged out on the MPC, everything is performed live.
***
A year after their acclaimed first album « Nasty Tricks » (Banzaï Lab – 2013), the most wanted gangsters of the electro Hip-Hop scene are back with a new EP “The Game”, recorded between Paris, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Clearly Hip-Hop oriented, with samples still taken from traditional american music of early XXth century, Smokey Joe & The Kid took a trip to California to record 4 tracks, each powerful, captivating and overall, absolutely brilliant.

Smokey Joe & The Kid : « We wanted to step out of pure jazz and to get more into the roots of all modern music : the Blues. We drove a lot during our stay in California, and west American landscape fed our imaginary world, as much as the heat of Los Angeles’ streets.”

After collaborating on their first opus with Puppetmastaz, Lateef The Truthspeaker, or Youthstar (Chinese Man), the duo hired this time accomplices from the US West Coast : Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), NON Genetic (Shadowhuntaz) and The Procussions (Watch the making of the EP). Gift of Gab gives a conscious message on “Stay Awake” when NON tells all about his touring experiences “What goes on tour stays on tour” (Gifted Child). Finally, The Procussions end the EP with poetry on “Temptation”.

« The Game » is clearly in reference to the famous “Rap Game” of which they make a personal interpretation, finding there the game field of their old-fashioned megalomania.

THE LIVE PROJECT :

Since 2013, Smokey Joe & The Kid work with the VJ Miss Chemar to deliver a unique A/V Show that mixes old school movies and original pictures of the duo. The strong interaction with the audience makes this a fun, original and incredibly dynamic show”!

Zi liberations

Zion I’s – “Libations EP” – Out Now!

Hip Hop duo Zion I recently dropped a brand new EP called “Liberations”!
Check it out here:

“On the heels of the very boom bap oriented “Masters of Ceremony” EP, Zion I drops “Libations” the reflective 2nd installment of their 3 part series. “This project was heavily influenced by one of my best friends passing away suddenly”, states Zumbi, “His death put me in a mood to really analyze my life and how short this existence really can be. It opened my eyes and heart to both the ugliness and beauty of what we experience while alive.” Hence, “Libations” broods with reflection and deep emotion. “To me, libation is when you honor someone by pouring out your brew before you sip, its a sort of prayer. On this EP, I poured out some liquor for my homie, as well as my family, and myself” shares Zumbi. The EP features production from AmpLive, Headnodic, and newcomer Featherload. It also has veteran MC’s Mr Lif, Sadat X, and Opio featured prominently amongst others. Now ease back, and sip some of this heady wine from the Zion I cup”.

Zion I is a hip hop duo from Oakland, California. The duo consists of Producer & DJ Amplive, and Mc Zumbi. The group isknown to its followers for Amp’s futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and Zumbi’s positive and socially conscious lyrics.

 cd1d-logo     spotify

“The Sleeping Camp securities and Dusty Signal present ghostly atmospheres that will haunt future album Toulouse. With its misty and dreamlike songs, The Sleeping Camp returns to the world of gypsies and the magic. References can be found through the guitars and synthesizers on the heady title Dusty Signal. With this EP Al’Tarba invokes the ghosts who are awake on the future album. The new song “Hey Boys or ” n is a tribute to the collaboration initiated with live DJ Nix’On past year. Indeed it brings its scratches which have the effect of boosting the title and offered him a summer flavour. Al’Tarba but do not forget his first love , featuring the Dirt Platoon returns on a hip- hop and hardcore rough bases with flows that make violence. This EP also announced the release of two clips that are in the general spirit developed by Al’Tarba over 4 tracks”.

Really excited that this EP is here and I really can’t wait for the full album!

Peace! ~dhh
