Critically acclaimed mc/producer and Soul Position frontman Blueprint, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore solo release Adventures in Counter-Culture. Experimenting with synths, keyboards, and drum machines, Adventures in Counter-Culture touches on Blueprint’s cynicism with the world, his disdain for pop culture, the state of politics and an apathetic, uninspired society. The album encompasses every facet of music Blueprint knows. It blurs genre lines and connects his hip hop pedigree with his early days in the church choir, to the R&B bands he was a part of in high school, to his new found interest in rock and electronic music.

After a five year musical journey, Blueprint has emerged with his greatest effort to date. A culmination of self discovery and societal critique, Adventures in Counter-Culture is just that. The adventure begins March 1st, 2011.

Who Is Latimore Platz?

Latimore Platz

Who is Latimore Platz?

Latimore has the voice and swagger of a young Tobey McGuire. Rapping has never been an option. So he spent a few years traveling the far east, honing his abilities on the MPC.

His first producer-tape, ‘Hues of Being‘, found its way into the right hands locally. He participated in a few producer showcases that led to a few producer credits, including Zerostar’s EP ‘Are We There Yet?‘. His follow-up project, a multi-part producer tape themed on the works of Smokey Robinson, caught the attention of Weightless founder Blueprint and is set to be released free online this summer.

Platz doesn’t pretend to be your mom’s favorite super-producer. He’s just a weird dude that knows his way around the BPMs. Platz’s full length debut, ‘Animal Stamina‘, will be available on Weightless late 2010.

The debut instrumental project by producer Latimore Platz, ‘Smokey : Part 1’ will be released for free on Weightless Recordings on Tuesday August 10th.  The project is a tribute to the work of Motown legend Smokey Robinson.  For now please enjoy the first leak from Smokey Part One “3-way”
