Union: Analogtronics


What do you get when you cross two Parisian producers, one a big Dilla fan and the other a Herbie Hancock jazz lover? Analogtronics!

Union was born when OJ, a Dilla-obsessed beat junkie with an unhealthy obsession for science fiction, met Gold, a jazzhead whose vast collection of vintage keyboards and synths left little room in his flat for trifling vanities like clothing and kitchen appliances. Though both shared a parallel vision for the music of tomorrow, they each occupied opposite corners of Paris’ electro underground when their worlds collided in 2009. OJ, upon catching a flash of Gold’s keyboard prowess at a Belleville loft party, approached the funky technician immediately in hopes of applying his melodic touch to a nearly finished beat tape. Gold loved what he heard, and thus two unique creative energies become one distinct Union.

Now, after waiting patiently behind two singles, a dope video, and a neon-blue triangle shaped vinyl, Union is ready to unleash, via Fat Beats, an MC-packed album in the dawn of 2012 - Analogtronics. Featuring Talib Kweli, Sly Johnson, Elzhi, MF DOOM, Roc Marciano, Guilty Simpson, Moka Only, Union produces space-aged bangers that mold perfectly around each guest, in addition to sprinkling in a few lush, eye-widening instrumentals.
