Producer and recording artist Theory Hazit released an instrumental project every month of the year in 2017. To end the year off strong, Hazit partnered with Portland, OR indie label Kiasu Records to bring fans The Soul Chops. Some of the beats on here – most notably Track 10, “Strummin 4 Mustache Cash” – made me break neck like Jay Z when he was listening to Timbaland beats for the first time.

Theory adds his own vocals throughout the project, with additional vox courtesy of Portland’s Libretto. Oh… and shout out to Redman too, just because. Available now on a limited edition double 12″ LP printed on white vinyl, Theory Hazit’s The Soul Chops comes via free shipping. Keep spinning and thank your water:
