QN5 Music is proud to announce the release of Tonedeff’s third installment of 4 stylistically unique EP’s that will be combined to form his forthcoming album, Polymer.
EP #3, entitled Hunter deals with themes of delusion, self-worth and competitive nature. Featuring guest appearances by PackFM & Substantial of Extended Famm, scratchwork by Rocksteady Crew’s DJ JS-1, and additional production by DJ Static (Immortal Technique, Akir), Hunterstylistically serves as a bridge between traditional Hip Hop motifs and the synth-flavored loftiness of the Polymer album as a whole. Tracks like “Narcissus” and “Competitive Nature” make use of atypical time-signatures, while “And They Watched Him” plays upon fill repetition to drive it’s point home.
“Polymer is about breaking myself down into fragments, so Hunter is me coming to terms with my own competitive nature,” Tonedeff says of the new release. “I’ve devoted most of my life in pursuit of this cultural idealism that has shaped me for better and for worse, so I needed to really deal with it in an honest way with a style I’m rooted in. These songs are the closest things to traditional ‘Boom Bap’ on the album, but with synths.”
For the third time, the symbol-rich artwork for Hunter was created by Eisner Award Winning illustrator Becky Cloonan, who is illustrating the covers for entire Polymer series of EPs. All songs were written and produced by the multi-talented artist with additional production by DJ Static.

POLYMER PRE-ORDERS END NOV. 30, 2014

Putting a new thematic slant on the format, Tonedeff’sPolymer consists of 4 separate EPs – each stylistically different from the next and focused on a different facet of his personality. Each EP represents a different “molecule” of Tonedeff, which when collected, form a larger more cohesive unit. EP’s 1 through 3 will be released digitally, with the fourth exclusively available on the final assembled version ofPolymer. All music on the project has been produced synthetically to mimic an actual polymer’s synthetic structure.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is the final window to pre-order one of the limited collector’s edition packages – QN5 is only pressing what is pre-ordered – after that, all Polydisc/Polymorphcollector’s editions will be discontinued. Pre-Orders for Polymer are available now @ Tonedeff.com.

Peter Anthony Red - The Projectionist

Peter Anthony Red makes his recorded debut with the release of The Projectionist - a sweeping conceptual FREE DOWNLOADABLE EP which follows a short, yet powerful narrative of a forgotten man working through the emotional roller coaster of a breakdown and subsequent search for personal reinvention.

The Projectionist borrows Hip Hop’s idea of the “mixtape” and flips it on it’s head for another genre - utilizing orchestral scores from various films and breathing new life into them by weaving completely original lyrics and a staggering level of vocal harmonies on top. This is uncharted territory, folks - and we won’t be surprised if we see it happen again shortly after this - just remember where you saw it first. This is huge, sprawling sound on an EP scale in anticipation for the forthcoming Hyperrealism EP.

Did we mention this was FREE? Our good friends at QUINTIC have opted to make The Projectionist a 100% FREE download (or pay what you feel to support). They only ask that you share the album with all of your friends and talk it up if you enjoy it. h3.
