El Michels Affair Celebrates His Cult Classic With 'Return To The 37th Chamber'
Return To The 37th Chamber is the highly anticipated follow-up by El Michels Affair and the cult classic from 2009. EMA’s signature sound is back and sharper than ever, which should satisfy fans of the guillotine-wielding rap group known as The Wu-Tang Clan.
In addition to re-interpreting the Wu’s compositions with a live band, EMA pays direct homage to The RZA as producer and bandleader Leon Michels recorded the entire project in analog. Released in cassette tape format, Return To The 37th Chamber is buoyed by that special fidelity laced with “psychedelic flourishes, John Carpenter synths, heavy metal guitars, triumphant hours and traditional Chinese instruments,” according to the press release.
Laced with those dark vocals from Rae, Ghost, Meth, GZA, U-God and the rest of the Clan, Return To The 37th Chamber is right up the alley for those who love RZA’s timeless production and cinematic soul that EMA is known all over the world for. The Big Crown Records effort will feature Lee Fields, Shannon Wise (The Shacks), Lady Wray and a host of influences that will make this an album that’s truly unique.
Keep an eye out for when Return To The 37th Chamber is made available for your ear’s digestion.
