Cratery #21

21 09 2010

This month, the Cratery crew decided to embark on a journey to Montreal for the f*ck of it. Heat was copped, food was eaten and in less than 12 hours later we were back on the road. I can say from the bottom of my heart that I love that city.The city is great beyond measure and every time I go I have immense fun. This visit was no exception. Shouts to Arcee and Serious and the various vinyl vendors that made this trip both fun and worthwhile. We owe this edition of Cratery to y’all…

enjoy.

This month for Cratery, we’ve enlisted the help of none other than homie/digger/producer extraordinaire Frank Dukes.

For those unfamiliar with his stellar production work, get familiar. This is how it went down: we went 3-for-3 with a wide array of joints from psych to soul, west-Indian funk to Bollywood brainmelters.

You’ll notice that there’s no tracklisting for this Cratery. The information is classified. However, we did give you an eBay-esque description that may help you decode the secrets contained within our crates. Just kidding, the descriptions won’t help you at all.

Regardless of all of that, we present to you:
