Audio/Visual Remixed & Reworked

In 2009 Record Breakin’ Music released the highly successful debut full length album Audio/Visual : Sounds Inspired by all Things Visual from artist, club and radio dj, playwright, Anthony Valadez. This album was a collection of beats that became modified with the addition of live instrumentation to add texture. The concept of the album was based on the merger between sight and sound. Each song, sampled and layered is inspired by a visual that inspired Valadez. “I’ve always been inspired by the visual element of everyday life.” Valadez explained. Valadez enlisted the vocal talents of Stockholm’s now New Yorker Kissey Asplund and Los Angeles’ Wendisue on a few of the tracks. Nevertheless, majority of the project was an instrumental soundscape accompanied with the musicianship of Dexter Story (Life Force Trio, Build an Ark), Shaunte Palmer (Raphael Saadiq, Talib Kweli) and Evan Lasrey.

Fast Forward to 2010. A group of producers from across the country including our very own lil' dave and Mr. Sonny James remixed select tracks from last years release adding their own flavor and giving Audio/Visual a fresh new look and sound.

Cop the release now.
