Black Lotus, my debut album, is now available as a free download.
It's a dark, sexy, sensual, blunted and dusted-out soundtrack of instrumental hip-hop.
It's aphro-futurist headphone music.

Triplestagedarkness is a collection of some of my older beats that I’ve recorded to tape over the years. Rather than sit and collect dust, my partner-in-crime Christiana suggested that I put it out, much in the vein of MF Doom’s Special Herbs series, or Madlib’s Beat Kunducta records. And I recorded the tracks “straight off the muh-fuckin” cassette”. It’s dirty, grimy and lo-fi. It’s gonna turn some people off. Honestly, I really don’t give a fuck.
It’s time to take this hip-hop shit back to it’s essence, back to it’s core. That raw sample shit, where you hear the hum from the mixer, and the static from the records, tape hiss and that warm analogue sound. Taking 90 seconds of sample time in a 12 bit sampler, and making art from it.
So, here it is, finally. Triplestagedarkness. 30 minutes of dark, dusted, experimental and instrumental sexiness. Cop it. It’s FREE.
