The late, great Sean Price left Heads with a robust discography, thanks to the Brownsville “Bar-barian’s” extensive recording career as a member of Heltah Skeltah, Random Axe, and as a hardworking solo MC. Now, his booming baritone can be heard dropping some new heat in the form of “The Festival,” the second release from Planet Asia and DJ Concept’s collaborative Seventy Nine LP. Also featuring contributions from Sweden’s DJ Devastate, the cut sports a roster of artists whose personal and musical backgrounds differ greatly, but the final product is a unique blend that, all in all, is a stampeding Hip-Hop effort.

Featuring samples of West Coast legends the Alkaholiks and Defari, “The Festival” follows Seventy Nine‘s lead single, “Gold Vases,” in which Fresno, California’s Planet Asia (a/k/a King Medallions) and Long Island, New York’s DJ Concept showcased the first inclination of a proclivity for the ’80s-era sounds also heard in the synth-based vibes.

The duo’s forthcoming album arrives March 25 on Coalmine Records. Available for pre-order as a digital download and CD form, Seventy Nine will also be pressed into limited edition gold vinyl, available through Fat Beats.
