Chicago producers Scud One (Cult Classic, The Dirty Science™, 2013/2014) and T-White (The Gift Vol. V, Street Corner Music™, 2014) have been working together musically for the last four years. Scud One is a producer and lyricist whose work on Cult Classic and Don’t Drink The Kool-Aid – alongside artist Denmark Vessey – was called “organic and thoughtful, political and soulful, and without being quirky or removed from the streets” (Daniel Isenberg – Nahright.com, Complex Magazine). Scud One has worked with artists including Quelle Chris, Guilty Simpson, and Exile, among others. T-White is a music producer, and animator whose record debut was the fifth volume in the ten-volume “The Gift” series compiled by House Shoes (Street Corner Music™). He has produced for Denmark Vessey on Don’t Drink The Kool-Aid and 2015’s Martin Lucid Dream; T-White produced the single “Don’t Smoke K2” which was featured on NPR’s “Songs We Love”.
“STEVEN TYLER” – a title derived from the combination of both artists first names . Scud One (Steven) and T-White (Tyler) focus on the integration of beats, interludes and spoken-word comedy skits delivered with absurd – and sometimes sardonic – wit. It’s a packed album, filled with colorful sounds, spacey artwork and irreverent humor throughout. As a collaborative effort, it showcases the strengths of both its producers, and makes for a unique blend.
“STEVEN TYLER’ is being sponsored by Chroncierge. It will be released on both vinyl, and cassette, and thanx to Chroncierge both will be green! Chroncierge will also be putting out a limited time strain called “Scudzy White” in support of the album.
