Title: Mo & Grazz – Gemini
Info: Always nice to stumble upon projects you didn’t know about yet. DJ Grazzhoppa, frontman of the DJ Big Band and a turntablist I definitely adore for his skills and music, hooked up with Mo to create the album ‘Gemini’.
According to record label Featherperm it’s “a soulfully, funky hip hop drenched record that we hope gives you head to toe goosebumps”. Check out their Myspace for previews and snippets and watch this video for more info about the artists, collaboration and release. We can’t wait for the album!
