The story goes that DJ Splyce (the founder of All City Records in Dublin) was visiting the old Fat Beats location in Manhattan when he was approached by a Bronx based production duo back in either 1995 or 1996. They heard he was an out of town DJ and they hit him off with a tape with their name “Midnight Eez” on it & a pager number. Supposedly, DJ Splyce didn’t find said tape until recently during a recent move. He heard the tape and decided to give it a proper release on All City. The cover is photographed by Hip Hop photojournalism legend Suekwon who also doesn’t know or remember Midnight Eez’ identity. Hmmm…

Do I buy the back story? No. Is it a great legend & back story to sell one of the hands down best instrumental releases of 2011? HELLFUCKINGYES. I don’t know who made this & if I found out I still wouldn’t tell, word to “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”. If the legend is greater than the truth, you print the legend. This is one hell of a story and one hell of an album. Stop sleeping on it. Cop it on vinyl or digitally from All City Dublin, Turntable Lab, Boomkat, Rush Hour, Clone Records, Amazon or iTunes. Just don’t sleep on it anymore…
