AD is back in the studio recording. They were scheduled to release a free project called, “20″ in mid 2011, but Speech reconsidered. “I wanted us to really give our absolute best, not just what happens to come out of us creatively within a certain time period, however, the present single “LIVING” did come from that batch of tunes. We now plan to release a free album called, “Standing at the crossroads” which will be a tribute to the glory days of Hip-Hop & activism. This record will feature: DJ Nabs on the cuts & Jahah on some of the beats. We’re planning another album project with 1 Love, (entitled 1 Love) and Speech collaborating with the Yoshida Brothers from Japan with a EP called, “Premium Blend“. Our next commercial album will be called “20″ (celebrating 20 years since the debut) it will be our most compelling & significant music project we’ve ever done! Our approach is to be musically dense, melodically simple and the subject matter easy to follow” adds Speech. Speech has also been drafting a new solo album which will be a totally melodic, live band experience that will feature many of the AD members. ” Speech says, “We have more exposure opportunities in 2012, from MTV, UNSUNG to Oprah’s OWN network, and very compelling documentaries!” The group is focused. The music, activism, exposure and vibe of AD is planned to be at another level for 2012.
JJ boogie will be recording engineer & the Podium (Speech’s Studio) will be the location on this next project.
