Possibly the most underrated producer of all time, Kevin Hansford, better known to the hip-hop community as DJ K-Def. From his early '90s work with Marley Marl lacing classics for artists like LL Cool J, Lords Of The Underground, and World Renown, to his timeless remixes (Nonchalant's "5 O'Clock", Artifacts' "It's Getting Hot", KRS-One's "The Teacha's Back", etc.) and on to his brilliant instrumental album "Willie Boo Boo 'The Fool'" and "Gangster Instrumental". In short, this man's been around, and with his recent signing with independent powerhouse Redefinition Records, it's clear he does not have any plances of calling it quits. Following several dope 7" singles and the impeccable "Night Shift" EP, K-Def and Redef is now releasing his first full-length album on the label; aptly titled "One Man Band", considering his composition are all digitized (though it's very hard to believe, when listening to them).
"One Man Band" features 12 exclusive instrumentals, produced, mixed and mastered by K-Def and released by Redef; available in digital, CD and LP formats (the latter both on black and on limited green vinyl). The official release date is March 1, but Redefinition already starts shipping copies today, which of course lead to me personally ordering the limited edition vinyl a few minutes ago.
