Continuing with the momentum of his September release Album Of The Year (Decon), producer and MC Black Milk is setting off on a North American tour this winter. Combining everything hip-hop loves about spliced up samples and the classic appeal of the live drum kit, Black Milk is bringing along vocalist/keyboardist AB and drummer Daru Jones to achieve the multidimensional skill of his production brilliance performed live in concert.
After what Milk claimed to be the most difficult year of his life, Album Of The Year was completed, producing an audible fingerprint of this unique artist’s true character and exhibiting influence from afrobeat to reggae and rock. Layering old school style drum sounds produced by a good ol’ AKAI MPC-2000 XL upon a stressed importance on the musicianship demanded of live sound, Black Milk truly is new school taken back.
