Up from the 36th Chamber

To any record collector out there or dj that digs this is a must have. I can't thank the Daptone and Truth&Soul labels enough for putting out vintage soul that's new to our ears. Now we can add Fat Beats to the list with this new release by El Michels Affair set to hit the stores April 21st.

For Enter The 37th Chamber, a name that pays homage to the title of the Wu-Tang Clan's historic debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), El Michels Affair, took the time to interpret fifteen of some of the most legendary and well-known Wu-Tang Clan songs, including "Can It All Be So Simple," "Protect Ya Neck," "Cherchez La Ghost," and "Incarcerated Scarfaces." Also included on the album are the El Michel's interpolations of Wu-Tang Clan anthems "C.R.E.A.M." and "Bring Da Ruckus," two songs fans will undoubtedly remember from their previous release as 7" singles through the Truth & Soul label. Similar to the sounds found on those two records, on Enter The 37th Chamber El Michels Affair are able to bring their own astute musicianship, artistic touch, and soul vibe to each instrumental, breathing new life into already classic songs. It was that musicianship and versatile sound that led to El Michels Affair joining the Fat Beats family, and now, two years later, the album is finally ready for the masses.
