// NEW RELEASE: HJJ X CD Spinz - Two for Tuesday
Building on the momentum of Bitter, today we bring you the double headed monster that is HJJ X CD Spinz. The pair articulately execute their flows on both tracks.
Snakes in the Grass was originally a production collaboration between JAckie and HJJ which was shelved until CD and HJJ went back to back on a Run the Jewels esque cipher in the studio one night.
On Are you with me? CD Spinz takes on the roll of producer, sampling Mausi's Disney Films, after seeing them live in late 2013. But he doesn't stop there, singing and rapping, going back to back with HJJ.
// NEW RELEASE: Ratomagoson x CD Spinz x Fosterbeats - Bitter
Right. It's 2016 and TwoSixtySix is fully charged for the year ahead. Lots of exciting things going down over the next 12 but it's the return of our boy Ratomagoson which has us all pumped at the mo. Yep, he's back on British soil and came straight into the TwoSixtySix studio to blow us away with the fruits of his 6 month sound recording adventure across Colombia. More on his debut TwoSixtySix project release "Hear In Colombia" coming real soon. For now enjoy "Bitter", his new collab with CD Spinz and Fosterbeats.
// NEW RELEASE: Jameson Yeah? - Rain
Jameson Yeah? makes his TwoSixtySix solo debut tonight with the release of Rain. Coincidently, this track was the reason he had a cloud of his own following him around the city for seven months.
Unable to contain his excitement when listening to the first bounce of it, he jumped out the chair sending mr laptop flying across the room and crashing to the floor. It was f****d. Months later though a guru managed to recover some files. The project was gone, but this bounce somehow survived.
It's hard, but maybe try and stay seated people :)
// TwoSixtySix Takes Residence At Fortress Studios
Itching to find a proper home for the collective to nestle into has led us through the doors and onto the desk at Fortress Studios in Old Street. Our weekly 6 hour sessions have seen a flurry of creative activity from photography and film to live art and of course, sound recordings. As we continue to experiment with different ways of working together and introduce fresh blood to the mix, there's no doubt that this is an incredibly exciting step for TwoSixtySix.
Lots of goodness to share with you lovely people over the coming months. Stay lockkked.
// NEW RELEASE: CD Spinz X JAckie - Headlock
We've been a bit quiet since the release of Plastic and Up There but we are back and excited to share the debut collaboration from CD Spinz and JAckie, who team up for their release HEADLOCK. Infectious energy and emotive words from CD Spinz over JAckie's dark but soulful beat brings to the fore another huge track under the TwoSixtySix umbrella.
// NEW RELEASE: Fosterbeats x CD Spinz - Up There
Having recently received airtime on Huw Stephens' BBC Radio 1 show, CD Spinz shows us the versatility of his skills as the pair skip seamlessly from the heavy hitting Let My People Go and An Uncertain Future through to the soulful delights of Blue and Didn't I.
// NEW RELEASE: JAckie - Plastic
Pure excitement buzzes through the camp tonight as JAckie brings a new dimension to TwoSixtySix.
Whilst discussing the prevalence of "throwaway culture" in today's society with designer friend Tearlach, the pair hit upon an idea. They wanted to create a piece of work that reflected this global phenomenon. Agreeing that 'time' sat very much at the heart of the discussion, the pair made this a focus point of their project. Setting a 30 day deadline from start to finish, JAckie took on audio duties and Tearlach graphics.
The three evolving tracks and stunning artwork we exhibit tonight are the outcome of this modern experiment. This is. #Plastic.
// cD Spinz makes his BBC Radio 1 debut
We're incredibly proud to announce that our very own CD Spinz received airtime on BBC Radio 1 last night. Huw Stephens played a recent recording of CD freestyling over Queen Latifah's Name Callin. This marks a well deserved nod to the East London rapper/producer's talents.
With a 7-track project made with fellow TwoSixtySix artist Fosterbeats dropping next month and numerous creations with the rest of the team including JAckie and HJJ also in the pipeline, 2015 looks like it'll be one to remember for this fella.
