My album The Empire Never Ended is finally out. The weight of waiting has lifted! Â Waiting to release things drives me crazy so I am super super happy to be able to finally share this music with you. Â I put a ton of time and effort into this record and I feel like it’s some of the better stuff I’ve done, sonically, song writing wise and in the way it all fits together. Â I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
On Friday March 22nd at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn, Dutty Artz presentsÂ Change The Mood: The Empire Never Ended.
Matt Shadetek will perform material from his album The Empire Never Ended live! with a guest performance by Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave, and DJ sets by DJ /rupture, Geko Jones, and Chief Boima.
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.
