I recently connected with one of my fave indie groups of the mid-late 90's for a revisit on their classic track Bizm. This track will appear on the 'Saran Rap' compilation dropping on vinyl via Heavy Crates mid-2015, ordering details coming soon. Shouts to Finsta Bundy and to 2Kool Tony who hooked up the project and provided the cuts on this song.

Trilateral Commission features M.I. of Constant Deviants on the mic and the talented SWC crew on production. I mixed and provided cuts on their debut album 'Swiss Banks', which has just been released and is shipping now. Limited to 300 copies, the vinyl features 9 tracks and comes in a picture cover featuring real nice artwork by Jonathan Rüetschi.
Listen to the release and pick up a copy of the vinyl or digital release direct from SWC Records: HERE.
A long-time favourite in these parts, the previously unreleased 1996 debut album from Young Zee of the Outsidaz is coming out on CD and cassette formats from GRR on April 28th. Remastered from the original promo tape (plus a couple of bonus joints that weren't on the original album), the CD release includes liner notes from rap scholar Werner Von Wallenrod. The cassette is limited to 100 copies and comes in a nice green shell.
This release is distributed by Fat Beats Distribution, so you should be able to order it in at your local store. Otherwise, it is available from the usual online spots like ughh.com, hhv.de and fatbeats.com.
Special thanks go to Dope Folks Records for their help in making this release happen. Amazingly they still have pt. 2 of the album on vinyl, so get one before they are gone forever: HERE.
