Resident INnatesounds producer and turntablist Leonard DStroy has been living up to his adopted surname this year, destructing the decks on his own solo album, Game Over, as well as on CES Cru's celebrated Playground.
Most recently, he's returned to his brainy cradle as beat helmsman for MC Brother of Moses on the Deep Thinkers' brand-new release, Make It Quake. Snag a track on the house.
The Thinkers are a household name in the conscious hip-hop scene in KC, and this, their fourth album (and first since 2007's Reprogram) is sure to further establish their progressive rep. Make It Quake is being released by INnatesounds and LA's Wilshire Records, a label founded by KC native Brian Hanis, aka DJ Ice.
A release party is scheduled for this Saturday, November 14, at the Riot Room, featuring performances by Lenny D and BroMo (of course), Reggie B with Miles Bonny, and Reach.
Chief Rocker Busy Bee is buzzing into town to host the show. If you're not familiar with Busy, check out this 10-minute doc on "hip-hop's first solo MC."
