Yesterday hit up the brand new Black & Blue Studios for a meeting of the minds with my Don’t Cry Recs family, Nick Hook and Tiombe Lockhart of Cubic Zirconia, the gawd-ess Jess Jubilee and the OG DPalumbo. Had a listening session of new Gas Galaxy tracks and the upcoming debut Cubic Zirconia LP. Margaritas and thangs ensued. As you can see the view is spectacular.
Nick Hook deep in the space pit. Trading plugins, beats banging, and picking prospects for new material….we went in.
This place is crawling with analog synths and drum machines i.e. heaven. This is home to a chosen few and the undeniable source of a lot of incredible music you will be hearing in the future for sure. very exciting shit. get into it.
Today Camu’s King of Hearts LP is officially released on Fat Possum/Definitive Jux. A long time coming to say the least and a bittersweet day for me and many others I’m sure. I can’t stress how much this record means to my life and I think the world needs to hear every shred of this masterpiece. Artists need to study and appreciate the gift bestowed upon our community.
Earth shattering sound, equally dirty as it is beautiful, KOH is testament to the work Camu put in when he was still with us. You don’t want to let this one pass you by. Trust. My favorite song on the record is “The Moment.”
