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”.Order Cassette / DL
“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.
The release date for “CHROME STEEL TIGER” is November 2nd, 2015 and is available on metallic silver colored 12″ vinyl distinctly housed inside a hand-screenprinted jacket by HIT+RUN Crew (a strict edition of 500qty) featuring the cover art of UK graffiti legend SheOne. The album is also available on limited-edition cassette tape (only 100qty made) and via digital downloads worldwide.”
