Work Hard Play Hard is the new album entirely produced by independent Hip Hop artist Abstract Soundz, featuring Iron Braydz (Triple Darkness), Flying Monk (Split Prophets), Skunkadelic (Afro Cluster), Kali Mist (Crudely Cut Records) and many more! The first single from the album “Dust”, featuring Lady Sanity, made the BBC 1Xtra playlist and was dropped by the likes of Mistajam and Trevor Nelson.
The sound of this project has been influenced by the pioneers of that early 90s, such as: Pete Rock, Q Tip, Lord Finesse, Dj Premier and J Dilla. As well as household UK names like Harry Love and Lewis Parker. The production on this record is heavily laced with Jazz, Funk and Soul samples pinned down by dusty breaks. All tracks were mastered by the experienced ears of Chemo.
