What's good BlackRadioIsBack.com and FuseBox Radio family,
We got two new and fresh tracks for folks to download from the upcoming Hip-Hop release from the world famous DJ Wake Up Show with Sway & King Tech, producer and turntablist DJ Revolution, King Of The Decks, that will be dropping September 16, 2008 on Duck Down Records.
These new songs that have been leaked so far are pretty tight for my peoples who are feeling that Boom Bap style of Hip-Hop music.
Checking out the lineup of guest MCs and DJs on this (DJ Revolution pulled out the big guns of old and new school Hip-Hop MC cats from all coasts for this one) and from digging his previous projects (In 12's We Trust is my personal favorite), I really can't see this being nothing but a solid album that will actually be worth spending some cash on to support some quality music.
As a crew of DJs over here, myself and Jon Judah are LOVING this quote from DJ Revolution about the ties between the DJ and the MC in making quality Hip-Hop:
Since MC's in general decided to toss aside the DJ as an asset and integral part of their success from production to performance, the music has suffered tremendously. My goal is to re-introduce to the world what a DJ is.
He or She is not just a celebrity, or someone who plays records, or makes funny sounds with turntables. He or she is all of that and more.
I recruited some of the most legendary and also most talented up and coming artists to help me express all of this within the context of the musc.
The title of the album is by no means a way of saying I'm the best on the turntables. "King of the Decks" is obviously just a play on words related to a deck of cards. However, it is also a statement that needs to be remembered.
The DJ is King."
