Like legendary treasure-hunters, Kon & Amir have spent the past twenty-five years excavating record bins finding gems to pierce ears with. Fortunately, everyone gets to share in the riches of their labor with the release of their latest offering “The Off Track” Series; Long forgotten musicians are now getting their proper dues and appreciative audiences are being turned on to some amazing music.

Since first putting it down together in 1997, the duo has released a total of eight albums; six On Track installments of critical acclaim, another album called The Cleaning, and most recently, an album appropriately titled, The Kings of Diggin’ along with DJ Muro from Japan.

Most recently, Kon & Amir accepted a five record deal with BBE/Rapster to begin the Off Track series, which builds off the successes of their highly respected On Track series. Unlike the On Track series, which featured short snippets of samples and breaks, the Off Track double disc series features full versions of some the best and rarest audible gems in their entirety. On one disc, Kon serves up extraordinary dance music (modern soul, boogie and disco) while Amir rounds out the sonic odyssey with rare, private press jazz selections from the 70’s on the other disc.
