Bonafide Magazine Premier: ‘The Doors’ – Poe & CTZN release single, announce LP feat. Del the funky homosapien, UK emcee Jam Baxter, bass guru Juan Alderete, guitarist Taka Tozawa among others…

Bonafide Magazine has premiered the new single ‘The Doors’ from Poe & CTZN‘s ‘The Good News‘ project. They had some interesting things to say about the lineup of the track and the project itself, which finds the California hip hop duo collaborating on their new quasi-conceptual album with friends big and small, from all different genres, backgrounds and locales including Albuquerque, Los Angeles, London, Oakland, San Francisco, Tempe, El Paso and beyond…


When the term ‘supergroup’ gets bandied around its usually tied with bands ranging from the likes of Atoms For Peace and Madvillain to McBusted and The Firm…The Good News is a genuine supergroup though, a project spearheaded by California duo Poe & CTZN, featuring cult rapper Del The Funky Homosapien, Juan Alderete (The Mars Volta, Dr. Octagon, Jonwayne) and Taka Tozawa from Deltron 3030….Produced by CTZN with Juan Alderete and Taka Tozawa, we are premiering a new track from the troupe entitled The Doors. An extended posse cut of sorts, each MC takes their turn to spit over the hypnotic string-led beat…Dope artwork by Pete Cosmos.”

The Good News track listing, album art, pre-order and street dates will be announced in the coming week, along with the release of ‘The Doors EP’, which includes remixes with SubjectJazz from Paris & DJ Halo from the Fake Four Inc crew, as well as instrumental mixes.
