Calvin Valentine Releases 'Eugene' Limited Edition Vinyl, New Music Doc [Premiere]
Calvin Valentine is no stranger to us here at Okayplayer. After putting in work with the likes of De La Soul, being chronicled as one of our First Look Friday subjects and showcasing his trippy side on the cut, “Your Drugs” — CV is doubling-down on why you should be checking for this rising producer / MC / songwriter by dropping a few treats on you.
Eugene, which has been available on all digital platforms since late last year, is now going to have a limited edition vinyl for the crate diggers + collectors. “Eugene is a love letter to my hometown,” Valentine said in a press release. Full of swooning strings, out-of-this-world production, throwback melodies + the like — Eugene is fueled by soul, rap + R&B which makes this album a timeless effort from a new millennium artist.
To make the pie a bit more sweeter, Calvin is also releasing a mini-documentary for the project which captures his deeply-rooted creative process of developing the project. It is something that the imaginative + intense creative has been doing since he was producing full-lengths for Planet Asia, and projects for Bun B, Devin the Dude and J Dilla‘s younger brother, Illa J.
