Kokayi – Robots & Dinosaurs | DIGITAL: 10.01.10 // PHYSICAL: 10.19.10 | [PRE-ORDER NOW]
Kokayi’s QN5-debut album, Robots & Dinosaurs, is set for release digitally on 10.01.10 and physically on 10.19.10.
The official follow-up to 2008’s Mass Instructions, Robots & Dinosaurs is a self-produced tour de force that showcases the Grammy-nominated artist’s varied talents on every track. Handling executive production duties along with Tonedeff and Byron Fogan, Kokayi has managed to create a work that highlights the spaces between the extremes of modern pop, rock & hip hop and subsequently deletes them. Photography by Chad Griffith, and cover art/layout by Seattle-based illustrator Lindy Kanand round out the project’s feel and give visual life to the music.
The album’s first single, “RoxTar” is already blazing it’s way through new speakers daily, with coverage at The Washington City Paper, HipHopDX, 2DopeBoyz and OkayPlayer. “Believe It”, also featured on the album, was licensed for the short film, A l’arraché directed by Paul Manate, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and broadcast throughout France on Canal+. Considering the album isn’t even out yet, this is a big record that’s bound for big things.
