Check out the Circa 94 Beats produced song “What We’re Here To Do” from the new album “Backslider” by Ray Curenton
Backslider, the sophomore album from singer/songwriter/producer Ray Curenton is now available. Having taken almost three years to produce, the follow up to 2012’s Cardiac Arrest is an eclectic blend of R&B, pop, EDM, hip-hop, gospel, and industrial music. Lyrically, Backslider both playfully and candidly tackles conceptions of identity and oppression, deconstructing race, religion, politics, and sexuality. Album features collaborations with soul artist Tim Dillinger and rapper Trez with production by Paul Mayo and Circa94Beats.

The Beginning is a bold statement from a rising talent in the world of hip-hop. LC captures the spirit of the philosophical waxings of his heroes (Atmosphere, Action Bronson) and blends them with his own stories of coming of age. Tackling tales of addiction, loss and home, his rhymes are spit over a musical foundation rooted in hip-hop, R&B and jazz. Produced by Circa 94 Beats, Paul Mayo and Ray Curenton, The Beginning shows the influence of the old school, but brings all kinds of new possibilities to the table. The first single, “Crack Raps,” is available to radio now. Watch the accompanying video for the single below, directed by Grammy-nominated director Israel Anthem (Mute Math, Shiny Toy Guns).
