Myself and Joel VDK go back a while.......back in 2011 he created the artwork for my mix "Calls To Trane" for Monday Jazz. I immediately resonated with his work: I knew I had to connect with the brother again.

Fast forward to 2016 and we're both proud to present our first collaborative project "ROAM". A combined comic book and beat tape project that we think complement each other nicely.

I've tried my best to create a dusty tape feel to match the narrative of the comic: raw MPC & SP productions with no special effects. It's a little more loose than my previous excursions, but that's kinda the point. I hope you guys enjoy the vibrations.

Who knows: we might do another one of these if you people dig it. Now go buy a comic book & bump some beats!

PRESS & FEEDBACK:

"So good!" Dj MZA (SoulCircle / Mellow Orange)

"DOPE!" Adam Moses (Jazz Refreshed)

"Laidback, dusty beats, complimented by a beautifully illustrated visual." OK Tho

"ROAM is a combination of a comic book and a beat tape that provides you that dusty, analog type sound to fulfill the narrative of a comic through an MPC and SP1200 without the fancy special effects. The idea is that you buy a comic book and listen to ROAM at the same time. You, the listener, becomes the director." Steryo
