... E-Z Now! ...
So, the new E-Z Rollers Album is finally out! After a bit of a delay the 3rd of Feb saw the Rollers' highly anticipated third album hit the streets. ‘Titles of the Unexpected’ (Cat No. ASHADOW30) is packed with anthems such as first single ‘Back To Love’ as well as ‘Music Keeps Me’, ‘One Crazy Diva’, ‘Dust’ and more; all of which have been cruising the dub-plate test-press/promo scene since last year. The album stretches across many musical genres from drum n bass, hip-hop, breaks and dancehall-style flavas.
The E-Z’s enrolled some exclusive collaborators to help perfect this sonic adventure. Old skool rapper, producer and hip hop beat-box legend Doug E Fresh appears on the unique floor-smashing tracks ‘Rhyme And Punishment’ and ‘You’ll Never Know’, with the latter also featuring disco and soul diva Sharon Brown. Dub and acoustic reggae artist Mangoseed lends a hand with the dance-hall flava on ‘Lady Jam’ whilst MC Bas and Rhallia Birch roll out the Hip-Hop vibes on ‘Tu-Ruf’.
