J-Zone - I Smell Smoke + Time For A Crime Wave (45 / 7")
This product is unavailable
Limited Stock / This is a "friends of Redef" release that we sourced directly from the artist.
I guess it's time for the latest installment in my half-instrumental-half-rap 7" single series.
"I Smell Smoke" (Side A) is an up-tempo (by current standards) instrumental that employs some of my funkiest drumming, sloppiest organ playing (I try) and weirdest samples. Then my trainer from the gym (seriously) passed by the house with his conga drums, so we jammed and I threw that on the end of the record for people who dance and stuff.
On the b-side/rap cut, "Time For A Crime Wave," my sidekick, Chief Chinchilla, pressures me to address gentrification, police brutality and the music business over a beat I made while in a bad mood at 3AM. I strive harder and harder to make wanton misanthropy a high art form with each day I am alive, so I balance these records out with instrumental music to uphold my positive image.
