Regulars to High-Rise will recognise the name TightFace by now. Remixes & Root Veg still regularly receives an absolute battering in the whip, on the headphones and out the speakers. Treasures of the Five Boroughs is an early contender for mixtape of the year and has left High-Rise very excited about the prospects of a TightFace release on Alex Chase’s One Handed Music imprint. He is also in dangerously close proximity to Paul White and has one or two very talented family members to look out for.
Treasures of the Five Boroughs is a solid half hour of TightFace production under a selection of classic acapellas by famous New Yorkers including Nas, Mos Def, Biggie, Talib Kweli and Ghostface. For the High-Rise staff, it really doesn’t get too much better than this. Maddest of props to One Handed Music for putting this up, make sure you follow @alex_chase for the latest news.
Do not sleep on TightFace.
