The Video:

Later this summer, producer and official Hieroglyphics tour DJ, DJ Touré, will release his new album, Touré's Theory: Session One. Touré is handling production across the album, which will be released via the crew's long-standing indie imprint Hiero Imperium, and Touré has already released the album's lead single, "She Like It" featuring B-Legit, D-Lo, and London.

Today, Touré is excited to release Episode 1 of his newly launched Freestyle Sessions, featuring fellow Bay Area native Erk Tha Jerk. The video, directed by Dylan Freitas-D'Louhy, takes on a jam-session feel, with DJ Touré both DJing and playing live drums behind Erk Tha Jerk, with the two assembled together in a local practice space. As the music plays, the clip takes on a truly organic feel, with Erk's live vocals reverberating over the track.

The Background:

Touré "DJ Touré" Duncan of Hieroglyphics grew up playing drums in church and at school, a passion that soon sparked an interest in production and he started Djing in the 6th grade. The local Oakland music scene contributed greatly to his main influences which spanned many musical styles, from hip-hop to gospel to R&B. Dj Touré's childhood also saw the formation of Hieroglyphics. He attended elementary school with Casual in the 4th grade, and A-Plus, Tajai and Opio lived close by in the neighborhood over the hill from Touré's home. When Del officially started the Hieroglyphics crew in the late 1980s, Touré became Casual's official DJ. As a producer of hits for Hieroglyphics crew, Touré began to make a name for himself as a producer in the Bay Area and he then started to work with independent artists including Too $hort, E-40, Father Dom, Beeda Weeda, Goapele, and many others. With his production company, 101% Music, Touré has singlehandedly acted as an incubator for new talent in the Bay. As a live act, DJ Touré has traveled the Americas, Canada and internationally to Japan as a DJ and member of Hieroglyphics and rocked stages alongside the X-Ecutioners, Mos Def, Wu-Tang, Nas, Common, Talib Kweli and countless others. His new album, Touré's Theory: Session One will be released on July 17th via a joint venture with Clear Label Records & 101% Music.
