Here is a collaboration project between Phoniks and underground emcee Awon called “Return to the Golden Era”. The album captures the golden era boom bap sound of New York hip hop in the 90’s, with sharp, clever emceeing by Brooklyn-born, Newport News-raised emcee Awon and smooth, jazzy production by Portland producer Phoniks. The record has crazy storytelling (Blood In, Blood Out), punchlines (Forever Ill), upbeat feel good tracks, down-tempo joints. It’s really consistent from beginning to end. DOPE!!!!! Go cop it here….
The album is also currently available on their website awonandphoniks.com and should be appearing on iTunes, Spotify, the Amazon CD store, and more as early as this Thursday.
