Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 EP release. What happens when the best of the Bronx meets ATL's finest? Nothing less than a Black Tie Affair. Having met back in 2008, Dillon and the legendary Diamond D have been friends and artistic associates from day one. Those paying attention would have noticed a Diamond produced track on Dillon's 2010 EP, Dillon Ain't Playin plus Dillon's mixing credits on Diamond's 2014 'The Diam Piece' and most recently Sadat X's 'The Sum of a Man' (produced entirely by D Squizzy). All the while, they've been cooking up classy joints together on the side, waiting for the right time to let the heads in on 'the next kept secret'. Black Tie Affair is not only a celebration of the finer things in life, but it's also a tribute to the B-Boys/Girls & Hip Hop heads worldwide who appreciate that Boom-Bap with a bow tie. It's sophisticated rap music strictly for the connoisseurs. As soon as the needle drops you'll be sure to say...'That's that shit!' Black Tie Affair is a five track, vinyl-only EP that features Paten Locke + additional help from Boog Brown, Alexa Lima on piano, Ben Hameen on guitar, Terminus Horns & DJ Harrison. The B-side of the record features all of the Diamond D produced instrumentals.
