B. Dolan's latest record is the self-produced "KILL THE WOLF", a sweeping, powerful opus five years in the making. The album reinforces Dolan's status as a complex lyricist and introduces him as a ambitious, versatile producer, dedicated as ever to concept and vision over fleeting hip-hop trends.
This sophomore studio effort on STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS / SPEECH DEVELOPMENT features a supporting cast of talent from a wide range of musical backgrounds, including AESOP ROCK, BUCK 65, ALIAS, CECIL OTTER (Doomtee), KATHLEEN STUBELEK (Circle Takes the Square), DS3K, BUDDY PEACE, and the late DAVID LAMB (Brown Bird) among others.
It would be easy for an album to go astray amidst such varying styles and contributors, but Dolan stays in firm command as an expert conductor, driving the album's layered and visionary sound. "KILL THE WOLF" sets out with a goal of demolishing the boundaries of what was previously thought possible in a B. Dolan record; bringing the best techniques from his catalogue into a new era of production value by fusing live guitars, analog synths, violins and upright bass with formidable vocals and intricate lyrics.
Five years after shaking the foundations of underground rap with his "Fallen House, Sunken CIty" LP, B. Dolan emerges from the earth, battle-tested, clear-eyed, and sharper than ever.
It's time to Kill the Wolf.
Billy Freekin Dee. In the beginning… there were turntables on a hardwood floor. DJ'ing for the first six months was done on the ground with a case of beer. Eventually he got a table a mpc and better. With this betterness he was able to release 2 mixtapes, produce 4 full length albums, win 2 DMC's and play hundreds of shows. He is now combining all of these experiences together to create one performance that you can dance to or sit back and enjoy. or hate. Dj Abilities for 2011.
