Sweet Nancy from Shaolin / Media-Only Recap

A few months ago we decided to conduct a media-only listening session for our Sweet Nancy from Shaolin album, with goals of creating a platform for 2-Tone to wax-poetic about the making of the project while at the same time giving attendees a true (hip-hop) heads experience.

We brought in notable music journalist Marcus K Dowling (Complex, Pitchfork, VICE) who expertly led the conversation between he and 2-Tone allowing 2-Tone to delve deep into the stories and various nuances of the making of specific tracks which culminated into the making of our best SHAOLIN JAZZ album to date.

Thanks to Marcus K Dowling for setting the conversation and tone, props to Chuck Levin’s for allowing us to use their studio for the session – the sound design helped to punctuate the experience, much appreciated to Calabash Tea & Tonic, Stella’s PopKern, Bjorn’s Bakes, Hero Heads Clothing, and Red Bull for providing beverages, bites, and apparel to fuel the vibe, and, of course, big shouts to everyone who attended.
