ECLIPSE OF HOPE... an album I''ve been working on for the past year, on and off is now available and released :).
you can hear some tracks on https://www.tradebit.com
I''ve work with producers from Vermont like Essential k, to my peoples out in Ramallah Palestine ramallah underground and of course my new friends over in Sweden, Holigan. I''ll include more material online as i know most of us are out and about and most of our interactions and transactions have been online...(still trying to figure out how to break that mundane routine). but regardless, I''ll also have the CDs up on itunes, cdbaby and all the usual online thing thing.
the album contains 21 tracks its about 79 min or so worth of material.
