Touch & Moves – 1984 cassette restocked

There are now three cassette colours for 1984 from Touch & Moves. The original pressing of 104 copies was half clear cases for retail and half yellow cases for direct sales (primarily Bandcamp and hand-to-hand sales). The yellow cases sold out quick, so we did a small restock of another 22 copies with red cases, which are now available on Bandcamp. If you haven’t got your own copy yet, buy one fast before they run out again.

Ol’ Gorilla Bones x The Dirty Sample – Revenge Vol. 1

The Dirty Sample returns to rap for some microphone vengeance…

A veteran of the rap scene in Calgary, AB, The Dirty Sample believed he didn’t have another vocal album in him, so he killed off his MC alias Apeface in 2018 on Ape No More. But the ape drags his ass out of the grave as the bigger, badder Ol’ Gorilla Bones. It’s time for a new beginning, and with songs like “Revenge on the Mind”, “The Murderers”, and “The Reaper”, Revenge Vol. 1 is predicated on vengeance. OGB’s vocals are raw and raspy, but with a laidback delivery that makes sense after hearing weed anthem “Death Bubba”. The Dirty Sample maintains the theme of the album with production both dark and ugly. As rapper and producer, the beats are specifically catered to his liking, with Rob Roy and frequent collaborator Touch as the only guests. OGB is back from the dead and no wack, clown shoe rapper is safe.
