Announcing Open Affairs Tour and EP w/ Mad Dukez & Fresh Kils
Courtesy Tony @ DTR45.
After a year packed with hard work, long tours, new music, more hard work, and plenty of short days and long nights, the seduction is back on as Mad Dukez rolls out his new mantra: Open Affairs.
This March, even the babysitter and the mailman will be dying to have a go at the new collection of tunes as Mad Dukez heads out on The Open Affairs Tour. With fresh markets, eagerly awaited return visits, and a week-long SXSW bash, Open Affairs has more plot twists and beats than Fitzgerald could've served up. Fresh Kils will be backing him up on stage with the live MPC skills that made Kils the Canadian production champ, but plenty of friends from coast to coast will also be along for the ride. Relic and B. Durazzo are the tour van family, Premrock and Willie Green will join them after South by Southwest, and fantastic folks like Maker, DJ Rare Groove, Brett Gretzky, Steddy P & DJ Mahf will all be rocking with Dukez at points along the way. The book on this tour has yet to be written -- so check the dates and cities, come on out and have an Open Affair.
THE OPEN AFFAIRS EP (MARCH 26):
Paint the town with a groundbreaking new sound from Mad Dukez & Fresh Kils, inspired by the F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby -- and the accompanying decadence and carousal of the Roaring Twenties. The Open Affairs EP is the dynamic duo's six track precursor to their long awaited record, Gettin' Gatbsy, and centers around an insatiable appetite for social observation, interest and acceptance... and at times going overboard. Tantalizingly tight rhymes, soulfully swinging choruses and hard hitting drums all come together in voluptuous audio indulgence. ...And for those of us who need the hip hop hedonism spelled out, with songs like "Sexspionage", "World Wide" and "Fascination", the Affairs are so Open that Leonardo DiCaprio won't be doing this in a movie any time soon.

"The story of your life...who the hell cares? Nobody, if the money ain't there" Directed by SyncoPatience, "Crumbs" is the third visual project from Original Text's (Ari Why x Tito Fuerte) debut collaborative EP, The Out Number. "Crumbs" tells a story of the Have's vs. The Have-Not's, Reality vs. Perception and Responsibility vs. Ignorance. Modern life creates a struggle for everyone to receive what they feel they've earned and deserved. A line is drawn between Giver and Receiver...but there are two sides to every story, and sometimes those lines can be blurry and faded.
