THE ALCHEMIST AND OH NO JOIN FORCES AS GANGRENE FOR DEBUT LP GUTTER WATER 10/12 RELEASE ON DECON TO FEATURE SINGLE “CHAIN SWINGING”, GUESTS INCLUDE RAEKWON, FASHAWN, GUILTY SIMPSON AND MORE!

Famed producer/emcee The Alchemist and Oh No, the left-coast rapper/beatsmith, are collaborating as Gangrene to bring audiences the gritty opus GutterWater on Decon. Over the course of three years and a myriad of emails, the two have built a project that celebrates their shared passion for dusty breaks and lurid wordplay as well as their distinctly different application of each.

As an artist, The Alchemist cut his teeth making beats for NYC legends Mobb Deep and Jadakiss in the early 2000s. Both camps make appearances on Alc’s 2006 solo debut 1st Infantry and he has since become Eminem’s touring DJ as well as producing for the likes of Lil’ Wayne and Nas. Simultaneously, on the other side of the country Oh No was producing a plethora of tracks for the Stone’s Throw record label, home to artist and Oh No’s brother Madlib, leading up to the release of his three solo efforts. Gangrene’s Gutter Water is the indie/mainstream middle ground at which the two collide.

On Gutter Water, both Oh No and The Alchemist share production duties while trading verses over each other’s dense compositions. Both find themselves remarkably at ease amongst the threatening drums pounded out on endearing vintage equipment, flipping verses that run the gamut from literal to abstract, amounting to an incredible collection of head-nodders. A gang of features include Raekwon, Guilty Simpson, Big Twins, Evidence, Roc C, MED, Twins Gambino, Planet Asia and Fashawn.
