[AUDIO] Substantial - ‘Art Is Where The Home Is’ (REMIX LP)

Posted 6 years, 6 months, 3 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, 20 minutes ago

Lots happening today in QN5-land with Tonedeff’s Livestream #4, CunninLynguists’ latest leak from Strange Journey Volume Three & Euro-Tour dates and now this!

From his early beginnings, Substantial has continuously made some of the most inspirational tracks in Hip Hop, from his beginnings with Nujabes (RIP) and now Marcus D. His latest project, ‘Art Is Where The Home Is’ is a collection of remixes & live versions of songs from his critically acclaimed third album, ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ – yes, you read that right – which was executive produced by Oddisee. This fresh, mellow take on HIWTAI features production by his Bop Alloy partner, Marcus D, Japan’s Haruka Nakamura, Deacon The Villain of CunninLynguists, DMV producers, Sean Toure’, Jsoul & The Other Guys, Jazz Hop producer duo A June & J Beat & Jackson and Mississippi’s 5-D.

‘Art Is…’ also features Sound of the City, a live band based in DC who Substantial frequently collaborates with. They provide lush live interpretations of See Hear & Check My Resume. The previously unreleased, yU of Diamond District produced track ‘Lost Lost’ features Jsoul and finds Substantial doing what he does best: wax poetic over a dark piano and gritty drums. AIWTHI is a slightly more chilled re-imagining of ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ but if you’re a Substantial fan, it’s more of what you love. It is available digitally on Bandcamp, iTunes & Amazon and available on CD as an import via Japan’s Rockwell Product Shop.

Catch Substantial on tour with Marcus D as Bop Alloy this Spring promoting their 2nd album ‘Another Day In The Life Of…’. For more information visit http://www.bopalloy.com/showdates/
