Of Process and Progression is a perfectly balanced combination of hip-hop, jazz, and soul from longtime collaborators Tall Black Guy & Ozay Moore, who continue to push themselves creatively after a collective of more than 30 years in the game. On each and every track on this LP, the duo beautifully blends Golden Era boom-bap with modern sounds to deliver something altogether timeless and inspiring.
To jump-start the album’s pre-order campaign, the pair are joined by the rising Queens-based poet, drummer, and emcee, KUMBAYA on the Soulquarians-esque single, “Viberite” which flaunts the talents of both emcees who deliver commanding flows with sharp wordplay while tipping their hat to ATCQ’s, “Electric Relaxation.”
The single can be streamed now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms and can be purchased for instant-grat off the album pre-order for Of Process and Progression which is due out Oct 22. The ten-track LP will be available through all major DSPs, as well as CD and vinyl, in both classic black and an exclusive Coke bottle clear variant in limited quantities. Various merch and bundle options which include slipmats, t-shirts and hoodies can be purchased now via Bandcamp as well as through Coalmine’s online store. All sales ship no later than Tuesday, October 19. Can you dig it?
