The Video:

DJ Toure, famed DJ/producer and member of the legendary Hieroglyphics crew, will release his new solo album, Toure's Theory: Session One, on February 19th. Though the album was originally slated for a 2012 release, the year wound up being one of the busiest of Toure's career, as he split time DJing for Kelly Rowland in Moscow with producing tracks for artists including E-40, Too $hort, Freeway, Devin The Dude, Phonte, Droop-E, and others. Now, with the album finally on its way this winter, Toure is unveiling a string of new music, including the recent release of album single "She Likes It (Remix)," and today Toure is releasing a new EPK giving fans a look inside his musical journey.

In this personal and revealing EPK, directed by Dylan Freitas-D'Louhy, DJ Touré details his Oakland upbringing, which included growing up with fellow Bay Area & Hiero artists Casual, Tajai, Opio, and A-Plus.  While giving us a look at some of his live performances as well as time in the studio, Touré, talks about his relationship with music, and how it started at an early age.  "Music has been a big part of my life from day one," says Touré, calling it "a big inspiration."  He leaves us with images of artists involved in his new album including famed Philadelphia rapper Freeway and, of course, his Hieroglyphics crew.

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 February 19th via Hiero Imperium.
