Nine new tales of blissed out boogie & modern funk-influenced beats featuring Zackey’s hauntingly sly vocals, guide the listener into a parallel universe of love, celebration, wisdom & heartache. Album highlights include a crowning collaboration with West Coast legend The Egyptian Lover on b-boy uprock “ON THE 1”, plus Zackey’s heartfelt homage to Eric Garner on “I CAN’T BREATHE”, which struggles for peaceful reconciliation in an otherworldly resting place. Production duties are laced by Tom Noble, Josh Jetson, Portland’s Brian Ellis, plus Loos Shus, RND1 and Zackey’s most recent collaboration with XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster on the single “HEARTS ON FIRE”.
“CHROME STEEL TIGER” is the follow-up to Zackey’s debut LP “Money Green Viper” [HNR40], a scrapbook of late night joyrides, fast women, demonic visions, real rap rituals and the ever-present pursuit of infinite paper, released to worldwide acclaim last summer on HIT+RUN. This new future funk classic is destined to rocket Zackey’s Force Funk Sound into the global spotlight. Ltd. 500 on silver vinyl
Highly recommended - our favorite funk release of 2015!
