Dan the Automator – 2K7

16 September 2006 No Comment

Greek mythology suggests that humans are creatures cut in half who spend their lives wandering around trying to find the other half. If this is true, producer Dan The Automator is a lucky man, for each collaboration in his multi faceted carreer has spawned success. From his breakthrough album "Dr Octagon" to the international smash success of The Gorillaz, Dan The Automator has always worked in collaboration with other MC’s, producers or singers.

Damon Albarn (Blur), Mike Pattonn (Faith no More), Cornershop, Primal Scream, Eels, Prince Paul (De La Soul): Del The Funky Homosapien (Hieroglyphics), Mike Simpson (Dust Brothers), the list of the artists blessed to work with Dan The Automator reads like a compendum of the best music has to offer.

Yet with his new project, Dan raises the bar even higher. 2K7, his new album features some of the hottest rappers of today: Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Ghostface, E40, Slim Thug, Fabolous and many more lend their skills to one of the most esteemed producer of his time. The result is a vibrant collection of classic hip hop burners.

Says Dan The Automator: “From the start, I was interested of exploring the various facets of today’s Hip Hop. It was a matter of making their style match mine, without forcing the rappers into what they don’t sound like and at the same time keeping the record a continuous work. I think we did a great job. Someone from the Bay Area like E40 comes off equally as interesting as someone from the East Coast like Ghostface or someone from the South like Slim Thug”.
