Here we are. 

E Dot Spencer has been working really hard on ‘Born To Fly’ AND of course, the hoop game. He leaves for China on the 6th of September to continue furthering his career as a professional hooper.

Yes, “China”. Yes, “professional”. 'Dotta The Globetrotta’, we told you.

Before he leaves though, we will release his epic album, 'Born To Fly’ here on Sept. 3. Dotta said he wanted to be in the States to celebrate this release with everybody, so the 3rd it is. Yes, we know it’s a Saturday and often 'release-day’ is Tuesday, but we make our own rules.

Download 'Caprice Classic’ from 'Born To Fly’ here.

Download 'I’m Good’ from 'Born To Fly’ here.

Watch E Dot perform 'Caprice Classic’ here. 

#Also, #AsWell, Rusty Redenbacher is prepping the release of his first self-produced album, 'The Tinkerer’. Produced, written, recorded, and mixed by Rusty in a week between the 9th of August and the 16th, it’s definitely a 'different’ sounding project from Redenbach.  Claiming everything from Nikolai Tesla to Lee 'Scratch’ Perry as influences, 'The Tinkerer’ is an album that should give fans of forward-thinking hip-hop and dusted grooves something to talk about.

Listen to 'High Chops (Extended Dead Disco Dub Mix)’ here.

Tomorrow on @ATFU_’s Tumblr (Here, man)…we’re posting the tracklist to @EazyEDot’s ‘Born To Fly’ and my album, 'The Tinkerer’, as well as announcing the release date for 'Born To Fly’

Here’s another snippet tape from 'The Tinkerer’. I just crafted this because I am mad excited about this album and before I start dropping full tracks, I want you to get a feel for how the album grooves. I gotta say this, everyone I have played a few tracks for says “Man, this is different…”, so I’m really geeked about what I did here, yo. 

'The Tinkerer’ just happened, man. It was an amazing experience putting this thing together, which is how I feel about everything #ATFU affiliated. I just love making this music and what’s great about 'The Tinkerer’ is the full budget for recording is about $29.99. (bought a spindle of CD’s to make it happen…I’ll tell you about my production process for this album later.)

DIY, BABY…you ain’t gotta have all them pretty mics and fancy lit-up gadgets to make music. You gotta have grit, ideas, inspiration, and some soul don’t hurt.

Watch #ATFU’s Tumblr tomorrow.
