An authentic 80’s time-capsule unearthed in a NYC recording studio.

Celebrated NYC Artist/Musician Al Diaz (whom has contributed a rich and bountiful body of work to the art world since the late 1970’s) delivers a take on the times heard through raw, rolling percussion layered with swirling poetic vocals.

The original master tapes were unearthed in a NY recording studio by producer/engineer Bruce Tovsky (Liquid Liquid, 99 Records). The track itself, which was birthed within the revered No Wave / Post Punk scene of a lost Downtown NYC, is seemingly drenched in the electricity of this glorified era.

The project is now debuting for the first time on a collectible and limited vinyl pressing + digi and drops with title single: “What’s In A Name?” + Special DJ Remix by Mr. Chinn.
