Audio: Tony Del Freshco - "25 Nights/Activis Music"
25 Nights or Activis music for short is the latest release from Tony Del Freshco produced by AC Gutta of Welcome 2 The Cool Table. He brings along fellow Houstonian EDF along for the ride this time around to paint an image of life in the City of Houston with samples from Drake, and excerpts from legends such as Big Moe.
A project of epic proportions with a multi-volume release and accompanying novella Zero Seed, the sci-fi hip-hop deconstructions of Future Rapper and company collide with a time-traveling synthesis of jazz, krautrock, psych, punk, and much more featuring Helado Negro, Rafter Roberts, Jonathan Dueck, and many more.
The gripping and powerful song is perhaps the first of its kind, combining hip-hop and classical Jewish Cantorial (Hazinut) music, as it tells the story of first an African-American slave during the 1700s and later a German Jew in a concentration camp during the Holocaust.
