What do you get when you have two Parisian producers, one a big Dilla fan and the other a Herbie Hancock jazz lover? Well OJ & Gold (Union) would say Analogtronics and I would tell you it’s some good music. With some “oohs” and chimes and a nice beat that drops a few seconds in, the Intro is a banger. Yes, that’s just the intro. Union put together a solid album with nice beats and a jazzy undertone. From Talib Kweli to Guilty Simpson, Analogtronics, has a gang of guest appearances that would impress any hip hop head. Union still shows you what they can do with the instrument tracks sprinkled throughout. I’ve been listening to Analogtronics for a week! I think I might even buy the vinyl LP pack Fat Beats is selling. The entire pack is dope. Go buy Union – Analogtronics at Fat Beats and digital on iTunes. BIG thanks to Ms. De La Paz for keeping me in the international know.
