Aarophat and Illastrate as Black Noise – Black Noise 10 Year Anniversary LP w/ 2 New Bonus Tracks
Ten years ago Aarophat and myself released The Black Noise LP. The album took us 3 years to make with Aaro traveling to Atlanta for recording sessions. We went through well over 2 dozen songs to boil the album down to what you hear today. Our goal was to make something that reflected our influences and something that we would be proud of years later, and here we are. 10 years and I still get people hitting me up about this album and what’s their favorite joint. This is definitely one of my favorite projects. So many stories from sessions to actually not getting the distribution we wanted, but it worked out for us. I’m thankful for this project but it really showed me how to put together an album, taught me a lot about producing in general. The LP has been remastered and re-arranged celebrating 10 years since it’s release. Two new bonus tracks were added, “In The Trunk”(the original version) and unreleased track, “Sunday Song”feat. Boog Brown. Thank yall for supporting this project, not bad from a couple of Midwest kids!
