:::FREE DOWNLOAD::The Stuyvesants:::
From the title of this post, I'm sure your clever little minds have already drawn the craziest of conclusions as to what gem I'm about to serendipitously drop on you. The long lost Biggie Smalls - Jay Z collabo album? The musical tour-de-force of the 4th generation funky hipster progeny of 17th century NYC big wig Peter Stuyvesant? Hmm. Maybe not. Maybe I should let Darien Victor Birks of FWRPT.COM explain the design/ music joint venture:
The Stuyvesants is a project created, developed, and executed by myself, Darien Victor Birks (Flwrpt), and Allan Cole (Algorythm). We brought our talents together to produce 25 instrumentals, t-shirts, logos and graphics which capture the sound and visuals of the 60's and 70's, an era that inspires so much of the music and design that we've grown to love. We've done this under the moniker "The Stuyvesants", paying homage to our current place of residence, which is the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York. It's been a year of putting this project together, and now it's ready for the world to experience.
The tracks are aurally scrump-diddly-umptious and the design is visually supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! I suggest you head over to The Stuyvesants site to get the full experience. Download the album for FREE. Cop a t-shirt. Or simply show your appreciation and kick the fellas a lil sum'n sum'n on Paypal. But by all means, show 'em some love! Overall: dope conceptual project. They wholeheartedly get my stamp of approval!
