Audio Previews Of Bonus Cuts From Big China Mack CD

You guys asked for it, so we had to deliver! The Big China Mack CD version is dropping this Friday, after we got a great response from everyone about the cassette (that’s right, as in cassette tape) version. We’re freshening it up with a few bonus tracks and I’ve got previews for you guys below. This Friday you’ll be able to get your hands on the only gangster rap/g-funk tribute album around, on CD from the Crown City Bandcamp page.

Here’s the previews, embedded straight from my Instagram page:

I’ve got to give much appreciation to the people of San Diego for showing me and Moniquea so much love last weekend. Definitely a memorable show (see that event flyer? No way it couldn’t be one for the books), and luckily there’s a whole gallery of pics from the night. Posted a few of them below, but to see the whole set, CLICK HERE. Photos courtesy of Jaryl Cabuco (Fitted Life).

Reality Jonez “A Million Girls” 45 Out Now!

realityjonezCrown City’s first vinyl release is out now – Reality Jonez “A Million Girls”/”If You Only Knew” – Get the 45 today from our store. Written and produced by XL Middleton.

On “A Million Girls,” The sounds of dusty, vinyl-worn drums, twinkling pianos and distant string layers form the perfect backdrop for the “New Oldies” crooning of Reality Jonez. The b-side, “If You Only Knew,” finds Jonez switching from his vintage falsetto to a more raspy, growling natural tone that harks back to voices such as Otis Redding & Wilson Pickett.

Get it today using the widget below:

XL Middleton + Eddy Funkster + Zackey Force Funk – “Press Play” Digital Out Now!

XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster team up with Hit+Run Crew‘s Zackey Force Funk (on vocals) to bring you the funky-yet-ethereal soundscape of “Press Play.” It’s a danceable, yet eerie and mysterious tune that would fit in just as easily at an after hours warehouse party as it would at a lowrider car show. This is the new sound of West Coast music – Modern funk at its finest.

The b-side, “Super Gorilla,” is a hard-edged modern funk “slapper” featuring Michael Kobayashi on guitar.
