My album The Empire Never Ended is finally out. The weight of waiting has lifted! Waiting to release things drives me crazy so I am super super happy to be able to finally share this music with you. 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. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
On Friday March 22nd at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn, Dutty Artz presents 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. The album will be out March 26th 2013 via Dutty Artz. 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. Guesting on the record are Riff Raff, Troy Ave, Chan Dizzy, Aku Orraca Teteh and Jahdan Blakkamoore. “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.” You can listen to Madness from The Empire Never Ended over at Pitchfork.
