Mini-Documentary: J-Zone & Pablo Martin are The Du-Rites Out Now! (@JZoneDontTweet)

Mini-Documentary + Album: J-Zone & Pablo Martin are The Du-Rites out now!

J: Hey all,

So my funk instrumental album with longtime friend, mastering engineer and Tom Tom Club guitarist, Pablo Martin, is now out! Our two-man funk band is called The Du-Rites. Me on drums, organ, bass guitar and small hand percussion instruments that require little skill. Pablo on guitar, bass guitar and synthesizer.

Our debut album was released today, on what would've been my Grandmother's 93rd birthday. My Grandmother was always a fan of my funk endeavors from long before I got into hip-hop...and she always feared hip-hop would get me shot. In 2016 I'm more likely be sub-tweeted or trolled to death in the comments, but anyway...

Here's a mini-documentary on YouTube about the band and album!

Here's a stream (for free) on SoundCloud!

Here's a link to buy the album on iTunes if you like it. It's also on Spotify, Amazon, etc.

If you'd like the album on vinyl, go to Bandcamp (while supplies last), or your favorite mom and pop shop.

We also got a Bandcamp Artist Feature / Interview about our "seamless funk debut."

Du it up.

Video: Mackenzie Nicole On Overcoming Negativity

Video: LegSweep Specialist - "After Life"

JGPR: Though this is their debut as a group, both artists are hip-hop lifers who have paid many dues in the culture. Greenville, NC native Sam Brown has spent the last fifteen years mastering his rhyme-style and beat-making with the MPC. In love with the music, Brown headed to the mecca of the sound in New York City, where he assisted many sessions at the legendary Quad Studios.

Fuzz Jaxxís career as an emcee stretches back the mid 90ís in his hometown of Augusta, GA. As a member of Shaft he gained local notoriety and a following. Arriving in Wilmington, NC in 97, he has grown to a respected lyricist and cornerstone of the underground hip hop scene there and in neighboring regions. Besides his solo work, some other Fuzz Jaxx projects have included the four man crew, N.H.A. and the live hip-hop fusion band, Organix.

I donít want to fear getting old, wondering whether I did everything in life that I wanted to do. This album, Worst Case Scenario, itís the idea that if all else fails, Iíll know that at least I was able to do all these amazing things in my life.Ē

Worst Case Scenario is now available for pre-order on and iTunes, with instant download of the first single, Nollieflip.
