Coming from Houston and Chicago, producer Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser and rapper SKECH185 have been making music together for the last decade. Starting with 2011’s “New Age Middle Finger,” they have been crafting their heavy and sometimes bizarre vision of hip-hop, fueled by ATD’s sample heavy, IDM influenced production, and SKECH’s frighteningly quick staccato delivery and … Continue reading WARCHURCH (Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser and SKECH185) NEW SINGLE! “NOT EVEN A DOG”

Well, let me take a step away from the close proximity I share with my Tomorrow Kings brother and friend, … Continue reading ANALOG(UE) TAPE DISPENSER AND SKECH185: THE END
