Hek Hernandez’s 1982 album release & show

HekHernandez-1982Explicit

It’s been awhile since I posted here, or had much of any presence on the internet for that matter. I’ve been enjoying a simpler life, away from the torrent of fleeting digital minutiae. I’m happy to be focused on the everyday work of actually creating music, not just talking about creating it.

One of the projects I recently worked on was a collaboration for my friend Hek Hernandez’s album, 1982. I wrote lyrics for & sang on “Reaction,” the final track on the album. It was a very enjoyable experience, and was more or less my first collaboration with another artist – certainly my first collaboration in the role of “vocalist.”

1982 is an electronic/hip hop album that takes thematic and stylistic cues from contemporary art, high fashion, trends in pop and underground music, and the beautiful city of Chicago. I’m proud to be a part of it.

Also, tonight is the album release show at Transistor in Lakeview. It will feature a live performance by Hek, as well as a DJ set by Supertoy, another great Chicago producer/MC. Show details are below.

By the way, Transistor is an amazing boutique shop I played at a few months ago that sells books, art, cameras, and custom electronics, and regularly hosts shows by local and international musicians. If you want to see a truly unique Chicago spot, be sure to check it out.
