Everyone’s new favorite emcee of ’07 finally decided to put out an album without that low-fi crap and poorly mixed (in some cases unmixed) tracks. I guess 2011 is the year of the little too late releases (see Saigon). We waited 4 years to get 3 tracks from Blu? Thank god for Fashawn. –Philaflava
Blu – Amnesia
Release Date: February 15th, 2011
Los Angeles MC/producer Blu has earned widespread acclaim for his collaborations with Exile, Ta’Raach, and Mainframe, and is currently at work on his major label debut for Warner Brothers. While fans wait, New World Color is happy to announce a digital EP (also available on limited edition 10″ vinyl) featuring music from Blu’s love-themed concept album Her Favorite Colo(u)r, as well as previously unheared material.
The 7-track EP, titled Amnesia, is sure to please Blu’s burgeoning fanbase. On tracks like the HFC standout “Amnesia” and the never-before-released “Amnesia(Rewind)”, the SoCal native explores the complexities of love and relationships while his own understated production sets the mood. The collection also features previously-unavailable instrumentals, showcasing Blu’s skills behind the boards. Amnesia goes digital on February 15th, just in time for Valentine’s day, and the collectible 10″ vinyl version hits stores shortly after, on March 1st. A full release of HFC is set for this spring.
