Just a little something off the beaten path musically to share as of late for my BlackRadioIsBack.com and FuseBox Radio Broadcast crew...
Got this pretty dope free album project earlier in the week from Rockford, Illinois' Electronica/Dance/Rock Music & Production crew Hey Champ, who were formerly signed to Hip-Hop MC Lupe Fiasco's 1st & 15th record label around 2008 (which I heard has folded - true, false, anyone?).
Some folks may know the trio for their song & video for “Cold Dust Girl” and the same named EP that dropped earlier in the year as well as their opening for the tours of music acts like Lupe Fiasco, Justice, Sebastian Tellier, The Sounds, Midnight Juggernauts, Kid Sister, Datarock and more...
Hey Champ does have an official album dropping later on in 2010 independently (well for now, at least), but in the meantime in conjunction with dubFrequency, Imeem, Bandit Productions and Life or Death PR have dropped the free Winner's Circle Remix album for free so everyone can check out their style in the meantime.
