"This is my first official release on my label Soul Touch Recording. I have projects that I have released in the past digitally, but because this my first vinyl, I consider it my first official release. This album is also a new style and flavor of music that people are not used to hearing from me, because I come from a strong hip-hop back ground. The sound of this album is an influence of all the music that I grew up with. I call this new sound of mine Space Bounce because it's not just techno, hip hop or trap... it's just Space Bounce. I was also able to collaborate with my uncle, the late great Allen Barnes from legendary jazz group The Blackbyrds" - Drummer B
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
is a self-made producer, DJ, art collector and musical tastemaker, who reigns supreme with a nameplate that carries weight among Detroit’s music elites. Born and raised in Detroit, Leonard Ware also known as Drummer B, is no stranger to the music and entertainment industry. His in-depth knowledge and experience in engineering, production, manufacturing, deejaying and executive producing have landed Drummer B credits on music and video projects around the world.
has been an ever present creative force in Detroit since the mid nineties, when he emerged on to the underground electronic music set with paintings that provided a visual counterpart to the Detroit sound that was taking the world by storm. Since those early days Ron's work has expanded in scope and scale; no longer strictly focused on man and his relationship with technology, Zakrin probes the veins of society, and explores the nature of man, love, and loss. Zakrin lives in Detroit Michigan, where he was born and works daily.
In parallel to his visual art, Zakrin is also a recording artist under the name Goudron. First appearing on the on the legendary Detroit label Ersatz Audio in 2002 with the EP "Horses and Chariots", and an EP and LP in 2004, "Civil Symmetry" and "Raw Voltage", Zakrin moved to the equally influential Interdimensional Transmissions label after the Ersatz label closed shop. 2007 marked the beginning of this new partnership with the release of the EP "Stiletto", with more projects in the pipeline.
