AYATOLLAH TO RELEASE INSTRUMENTAL LP, DRUM MACHINE, ON 9-30-08 ON NATURE SOUNDS RECORDS
Legendary New York Producer, Ayatollah, preps his digital-only instrumental album, DRUM MACHINE on Nature Sounds.
Producing incredible beats is nothing new to hip-hop veteran Ayatollah. Although probably most known for his contribution to Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty”, ‘Tollah has crafted classics for some of the best MCs to ever touch the microphone like Rakim, The Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli, D-Block, Pharoahe Monch, and many more. Ayatollah has even been compared to (and probably has influenced) such heavyweight producers such as RZA, Just Blaze and Kanye West to name a few.
This fall, Ayatollah is set to drop yet another installment of 22 never before heard tracks laced by the legendary beat smith himself. While his vintage soulful sound is synonymous with classic golden era hip-hop, the music’s timeless quality stands strong against any of today’s biggest hits. Drum Machine, a musical ode to the tool of his trade, is a must for any producer, DJ, MC or hip-hop enthusiast. Ayatollah’s Drum Machine will be available for digital download on 9.30.08 at all fine online retailers.
