Here's the first cut off of Black Sheep's 2007 album "8WM/NOVAKANE"...

Back in 1991 ,the legendary duo kicked-off their classic album
"A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" with a ridiculously over-the-top
violent track where Dres says something like
"yo, who the fuck used my toothbrush??? ",
before he guns down his entire family and then
tries to catch his schoolbus...The song ends when
Dres wakes up to reveal that the silly
version of Black Sheep you just heard was nothing
more than a bad dream he was having...

-yet, somehow, I didn't see this one coming.

So...I've been working on starting a label for a while and this is our first release. It's a compilation with tracks from 6 different artists that I've either known since way back or met along the way. The tracks cover a lot of different styles of electronic music with hip hop being a major influence to all of us as well. It's all instrumental (except zachary sings a bit on his tracks), and everyone will have more material coming out next year. Here is a freebie:
