Ohio rapper Illogic and I have been working on an album together for a few years now. We released two free Ep’s on bandcamp (you can get those HERE). Well, today our full length “Capture the sun” drops on Man Bites Dog records. It’s a 16 track album entirely produced by me with Illogic rapping, featuring Slug, Blueprint, Abstract Rude and others.
Anyway, instead of me explaining it in depth, peep this ARTICLE on Amoeba.com
Also, Tune into WFMU.org this week to hear the entire interview with Illogic and myself with host Billy Jam on “Put the needle on the record”. The show is on friday from 7-9.

As for the album and where you can get it, it’s available digitally
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/capture-the-sun/id633769116
and also on Amazon (might not be available today, but it will be soon)

If you’re more of a hard copy kinda person (god bless you!), you can get the cd at Amazon.com, at ughh.com and FYE online and mom and pop stores all over the US.

If you’re into limited edition kinda things, you can get a cd with a bunch of cool “capture the sun” beach stuff over HERE. These are very limited edition so you might wanna get on that if this interests you.

Or you can just buy the cd here:

Also, people have asked me about if this will be released in vinyl or if there will be an instrumental version available. As of now, the Vinyl is up in the air. There’s been talk of a special , very limited run or even some 7” records. I’ll certainly let you know as soon as I find out. Same goes for the instrumental version. Both would be small runs and come with a T-shirt so, keep an eye out for those.

Lastly, if you’re one of those people who only buys stuff after listening to it, you can peep the album streaming in it’s entirety right here:

I think that’s everything. If you have any more questions (and are on twitter) direct them to @manbitesdogrecs. He’s your answer guy.
So, go get this album in some form and enjoy it! And thanks for listening and supporting from both Illogic and myself.

Illogic/Blockhead Round-up

illogic-blockhead
So, as you may know, I’ve been working with my homeboy Illogic for a while now. We released two free ep’s , a ton of videos and in April we will be dropping our full length together called “Capture the Sun” on Man bites dog Records.
I just wanted to use this post to pretty much cover everything we’ve done and let you all know that we’re both really excited to be putting this full length out.
Let’s take a little walk down memory lane…

This was the first song I ever did with Illogic. We made it around 2000. I had had an idea to make an album with various rappers over my beats but it never got finished due to me now knowing enough good rappers at the time.
But this song is what got the ball rolling

During that same trip, Illogic made another song with Aesop over one of my tracks

From there, it was years until Illogic and I would work together. One day he hit me up randomly and was like “hey, you wanna make an album?” I was like “Sure!” and that’s how music gets made! What ended up happening was I sent him tons of beats. He ended up picking like 30 of them and making songs. Because we no longer live in a era of double albums, we decided it might be best to release a few eps. The hope was these ep’s would not only announce that Illogic and I were working together but also seek out interest from record labels. Before any of the ep’s came out, we leaked this song…

You can download that here:

If you’re one of those know-it-all nerds, you might recognize that track from a despot remix I did. Oops!
There is also this track got released on a the compilation “Collaboration is the key”

Shortly after that we put together our first EP called “Preparing for capture”. This is still available for free download

This spawned a few videos:



After that, we put together the second free ep, “Preparing for capture 2”

This had a video as well:

So, that brings us to where we are currently. “Capture the sun” drops April 16th.
Here’s A video of Illogic and I discussing the album

Also, here are two videos of what we got in store for that album.
The first single “Capture the sun” Featuring Slug of Atmosphere on the hook.

And another joint of the album “Neva Heard”

Got it? Good. I hope you like all this stuff. If you do, please cop the album when it drops. also, keep an eye out for Illogic performing at SXSW as well as some shows we’ll be doing together in the midwest come the release date.

Also, I’d just to send shout out to Blueprint for helping with the photo’s and interview video, Ryan from Man Bites dog for putting the album out and Eric Anello and Laura Green for all the videos they made. You guyz are da best.
