Broken Keys – Ethos EP

Broken Keys A.K.A Chemist A.K.A Tommy Sheridan, is one half of Cleveland based Hip Hop duo Smoke Screen, who have released two projects with Collective Resonance in the past. Tommy is also involved with Smoke Noises and has been producing under the alias of Broken Keys for a few years now. We are proud to be releasing this next project of his.

The word ethos derives from Greek, meaning “character” and is used to describe the guiding beliefs or ideals that characterize a community, nation or ideology. Ethos has also been used by Greeks to refer to the influence music can have on listeners emotions, behaviours and morals.

Broken Keys fuses the art of sampling, field recordings, original vocals, electric guitar and manipulating sounds with various effects via an SP404, to create some very smooth sounding, feel good, atmospheric vibes on this forthcoming EP of his.

Smoke Noises – Make It To A Dollar EP

Cleveland hip-hop vanguards Smoke Screen and Ghost Noises have joined forces as SMOKE NOISES once again. After combining for their self-titled debut LP in 2013, Smoke Noises make their triumphant return with the “Make It To A Dollar” EP via Alloy-X Records. From the brutal percussive minimalism of the title track to the bubbling neo-psychedelia of “Liquid”, the three MCs are at their creative peak; bouncing off of each other’s styles and dropping enough quotables to guarantee that this one will be on repeat for a long time. “Make It To A Dollar” is available now on all major online music retailers!
