about

Darker Than Black (Press Release)

I have never really attempted to do a remix album up until now. I always felt it was a corny way of trying to gain attention by latching onto high profile artists, hoping someone from the Record Label would sign you or something! But I guess I have a reason to create one at this moment in time, 10 years after the release of ONE of the greatest albums I have ever owned “The Black Album” by Jay-Z.

I thought about creating this Remix Project Titled “Darker Than Black” about two years ago when I was thinking about all the CD’s I used to own that had got stolen and I remembered this from the list amongst many others, when I first bought the album on CD. The inspiration came to me when I recalled a conversation about the film “Fade To Black” with a few bredrins at during work. We were like hyped as F**k man! The way the documentary was filmed and the processes taken making the original album had got me excited.

When I realised that the Black Album was coming up to ten years, and Wu-Tang Clan’s Album “36 Chambers” at 20 years that same month (Which was the first album I bought on tape) it made me realise how much Hip Hop Music has changed, and in some ways come right back around. I wanted to create this remix project Darker Than Black as a reminder to myself how much I love Hip Hop and being part of the culture while still enjoying it.
