Lewis Parker – The 45 Collection
The set of 5 seven-inches features unheard original versions, instrumentals, and unreleased songs from a classic period of output between 2002-2006, including beats from the sessions of his critically acclaimed “It’s All Happening Now” LP and the “Put a Beat to a Rhyme” remix project.
Lewis Parker – Incognito
Unreleased, original version.
After a long stay in Queens, NY, soaking up the energy and grittiness of the city and working with Joey Bada$$, the London-born musician is back in the UK. After several successful previous releases with KingUnderground Records, Lewis is now releasing a special treat for long-time fans.
Ghostface Killah – Shaky Dog.
In a standout cut, dramatic horns and raw, soulful vocals form the foundation of the
instrumental version of legendary Wu-Tang member, Ghostface’s “Shaky Dog.” The original track is on the “Fish Scale” album, released on Def Jam in 2006.
Lewis Parker – Sunny Dedications
“Sunny Dedications” featured in instrumental form for the first time ever; is a classic beat taken from Parker’s seminal “It’s All Happening Now” album released in 2002 on Massive Attack’s Virgin imprint, Melankolic. The lush strings and hard drums still strike a chord over 15 years later.
As Parker continues to maintain his musical integrity and commitment to the traditional Hip-Hop aesthetic while simultaneously pushing his sound forward, KingUnderground brings a rare snapshot of the veteran producer’s cutting-room floor.
