Remix Track Celebrates Collaboration Of Man Bites Dog Records' Talented Roster
Today Complex premieres the most recent collaboration between multiple artists under the Man Bites Dog Records label, a remix of rapper Double A.B. and producer Dub Sonata's track "Lord Knows What" Ft. Roc Marciano. The track was remixed by Blockhead, who just recently released his own album with collaborator Illogic entitled Capture The Sun. The track orginally appeared on the Double A.B. & Dub Sonata 2012 album Media Shower, which boasted features from Marciano, Evidence, Cannibal Ox, Sean Price and Scram Jones.
Blockhead was more than game for the opportunity to work with A.B., having known A.B. since he himself was 18 years old. And with Roc Maricano recently named as VP & Director of A&R for the label, it seemed like the perfect time to release a record that demonstrated the impressive wealth of talent Man Bites Dog Records has assembled. With a new beat tailored specifically for the remix track, Blockhead went for "more of a head nod, driving force" type sound, leading to a "break that was airy and little self reflective." Coupled with spirited lyrical deliveries from Double A.B. and Roc Marciano, the track is a perfect example of the label's continued evolution and growing dominance.
Please contact Michelle or Dan if interested in talking with Double A.B.
New York City rapper Double A.B. first garnered attention in the late '90s, as a teenager, when his demo was discovered by Blaze Magazine. The publication was so impressed with A.B.'s music that it quickly entered the rap upstart into its popular Blaze Battle, and while Double A.B. entered as an unknown, he left, burgeoning career underway, as one of four semi-finalists in the battle. A.B. continued his battle dominance, taking part in a number of national television competitions on MTV, before switching modes and leaving the battle circuit in order to focus on his music full-time. Since then, Double A.B. has released two albums, New York Minute and The Diesel, and has collaborated with the likes of Vast Aire, Scram Jones, and others. He's also stayed busy on the road, touring with artists including the GZA, Cannibal Ox, eLZhi, and C-Rayz Walz. Now, on September 18th, Double A.B. is teaming up again with producer Dub Sonata -- the two first collaborated on Double A.B.'s album The Diesel -- and together the rapper and producer pair have released a new album, Media Shower via Man Bites Dog Records. In addition to Roc Marciano, who is featured on lead single "Lord Knows What,"Media Showers includes features from Sean Price, Rhymefest, Cannibal Ox, Evidence, and others.
