Know One & DamNathan have been making music together since their 2002 release ''The Blank Space''. Being founding members of the underground Hip-Hop collective Media Darling Records, these two have served as an innovative force in the New Orleans music scene for the last ten years. Their latest release ''Sound Track- The Ballad Of Know One & DamNathan'' is a genre crossing meld of heavy break beats, machine gun raps, and melodic, quiet moments that not only tie it all together but also add strong dynamics to the tunes rarely found on modern popular music. The idea was to take the extremes of what the two artists do musically and intertwine them with hopes of creating something truly unique. This album had been pieced together over nearly five years with the first of the songs being recorded while Nathan was in Los Angeles studying film and Know One was in New Orleans working on his first solo project ''Know One''s Home''. Once DamNathan moved back to New Orleans the project began to build steam with Able Chris, one time member of the group, contributing to three songs on the project. Other guests include singer songwriter Rita LaGrange, NOLA Hip-Hop staple Impulss, multi-instrumentalist Kelly Carlyle & percussionist Anthony Cuccia of The Other Planets, turntable master Quickie Mart, & guitar great Timothy K. Smith in his final performance ever recorded before his sudden passing in 2009. As the album began to take shape, unintentional themes of second chances, DeJa Vu, time, and circular thinking, began to emerge in the subject matter of the songs. Once this pattern was recognized, the boys capitalized on it making the album not only an epic audio experience, but a cerebral experience as https://www.tradebit.com put the finishing touches on the album, the two turned to music virtuoso Jim Nordstrom of Waterhouse Recording to mix & master the project creating perhaps the most genre bending piece of music to emerge from New Orleans in quite some time.
