Image: 1611269 What happens when the best of the Bronx meets ATL’s fnest? Nothing
less than a ‘Black Tie Affair’. Having met back in 2008, Dillon & the
legendary Diamond D have been friends and artistic associates from day
one. Those paying attention would have noticed a Diamond produced
track on Dillon’s 2010 EP, ‘Dillon Ain’t Playin’ + Dillon’s mixing credits on
Diamond’s 2014 ‘The Diam Piece’ and most recently Sadat X’s ‘The Sum
of a Man’ (produced entirely by D Squizzy). All the while, they’ve been
cooking up classy joints together on the side, waiting for the right time to
let the heads in on ‘the next kept secret’.
Black Tie Affair is not only a celebration of the fner things in life, but
it’s also a tribute to the B-Boys/Girls & Hip Hop heads worldwide who
appreciate that Boom-Bap with a bow tie. It’s sophisticated rap music
strictly for the connoisseurs. As soon as the needle drops you’ll be sure
to say...’That’s that shit!’
Black Tie Affair is a 5 track, vinyl-only EP that features Paten Locke +
additional help from Boog Brown, Alexa Lima on piano, Ben Hameen on
guitar, Terminus Horns & DJ Harrison. The B-side of the record features
all of the Diamond D produced instrumentals.
