Dutty Artz is immensely proud to announce the new album from Matt Shadetek The Empire Never Ended, his second solo effort. Â The album will be out March 26th 2013 via Dutty Artz. Â The record is a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks which fuse Shadetek’s love for new sounds with the street knock of Rap and R&B. Â Guesting on the record are Riff Raff, Troy Ave, Chan Dizzy, Aku Orraca Teteh and Jahdan Blakkamoore. Â “After I moved back to NYC after living in Berlin I wanted to make something more local” Shadetek says “I grew up on rap music but there was a moment where things just got really boring and my interest went elsewhere. Lately things are getting interesting again.” Â You can listen to Madness from The Empire Never EndedÂ over at Pitchfork.
