Peace & Rhythm has got some hot new wax coming your way this spring & summer! We just sent off the next one to the pressing plant. We're happy to announce a forthcoming split 7" featuring a song each by Brooklyn dub band Super Hi-Fi and Ithaca-based afrofunk juggernaut Big Mean Sound Machine. Two earth-rumbling cuts by two heavy groove bands on one DJ-friendly platter, complete with a picture sleeve and two-sided insert. 800 press. The two bands will be playing some shows together this summer, so get in touch if you'd like to book them. And don't hesitate to also check out Super Hi-Fi's previous records on Electric Cowbell and BMSM's previous records on Angry Mom Records.
Here's a look at the two sided sleeve for the release.
