Emancipator – Maps & Father King EP – Out Now
About the release
Ten years ago, I released “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough” on CD-Rs, biking to the post office a few times a week to send out whatever orders trickled in through the Paypal address I had posted on Myspace. Somehow it reached the ears of iconic Japanese hip-hop producer Nujabes and was released on his label, Hydeout Productions. In addition to giving the album a professional mixdown, Nujabes suggested a new tracklist that omitted two songs, “Maps” and “Father King.” As a special nod to the ten year anniversary of my first album and these two lost tracks which are still dear to me and many of my listeners, I’ll be releasing a special Maps & Father King EP on November 11th with both tracks remastered and remixed by four different producers. I’m very excited to give new life to these songs in the form of this special release.
