Josh One shares “Clubber Lang (Instrumental)” and “The Mantra (Instrumental)”

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Veteran producer/DJ Josh One shares some audio treats with us as he releases two instrumentals from his collaboration with super lyricist Demetrius Rhymes.

The first cut “Clubber Lang (Instrumental)” is a gritty anthemic bat ripe with booming basslines, crunchy drum breaks, and sublime synths. It’s as punchy as they come and perfect for that classic bravado-laden raps we all love.

The second track “The Mantra (Instrumental)” is quite engaging with its a cinematic texture made up of somber keys, pulsating bass guitar and soothing textures.

 

Producer/DJ Josh One has pushed the boundaries of hip-hop, trip-hop, downtempo, and house for over two decades. The award-winning producer is responsible for countless underground classics and platinum remixes working with artists from Blu, Aloe Blacc, Sean Paul, J Dilla, Keith Murray, Shana Halligan, The Pharcyde, Fitz & The Tantrums, Nappy Roots to Goapele. Renowned for his prolific range of genre-blurring and groundbreaking productions, Josh has forged a pathway to numerous major network and motion picture placements for ABC (How to Get Away With Murder), CBS (CSI NY, Miami, Las Vegas), Microsoft, Starz (Power), HBO (Silicon Valley), Motherland, VH1, OWN, Freeform, WB and CW.

His early rise as an international DJ led to his solo production debut with the release of his first full-length, Narrow Path that contained the lead single “Contemplation”. Remixed by Philly-based house producer King Britt (currently licensed to Defected Records), the widely acclaimed single was catapulted into one of the most recognized house anthems of all time. He then released an EP Grey Skies featuring Aloe Blacc & Myka9, followed up by two LPs – Tolerance featuring Lateef The Truth Speaker, Blu & Uncle Imani and Time Stamp featuring: Divine Styler, TaRaach & Tabi Bonney. Maintaining an analog aesthetic he coins as “futuristic-vintage”, Josh One’s innovative sound bridges modern electronic programming with live instrumentation by world-class musicians.

Josh One is the founder of Boomnote Music, an artist-driven record label and creative agency in Long Beach, California. Elevating creators through innovative channels of consumer entertainment, Boomnote serves as a creative platform to further the ambitions of iconic musicians and breakthrough artists worldwide.
