New Release - Free Trade "Plus 30"

This is the latest release from the talented team over at Tru Statement Ent. Free Trade's "Plus 30" debuted on June 15th and is available for FREE right here. I've been waiting for this release since I was first introduced to Free Trade and his music last year. The project was actually created in a bedroom in Orlando, FL, including 30 contributors (musicians, designers, engineers) from all over the United States, hence the title of the album Free Trade - Plus 30.

"I contacted as many college students from around the U.S who still believe in honest and soulful music via email, text message, and facebook, and created an entire album from my bedroom" says Free Trade. Working within the parameters of new age media, Free Trade was able to have bass lines laid down in St. Louis, jazz samples flipped in the UK, horns tracked in Manhattan, keyboards recorded in Boston, and the list goes on. Most of the musicians involved in Plus 30 had no prior knowledge of one another, nor did they get to hear the final product until the project was finished, creating an unspoken faith between all 30 contributors.

Free Trade and Tru Statement have put together some excellent promo for the release of "Plus 30" including a promo page and webisodes. Check them out and support good Hip-Hop music.
