A few years ago I was in Rotterdam, Holland visiting friends and I somehow ended up in the studio with one of Rotterdam's legendary producers: Ballantyne. It was near the end of a great summer on a sunny and warm day. A day where my friend Niven introduced me to his friend Dwight, who introduced me to his friend Tijmen, who brought me to the studio in the basement of a huge artist complex he was living in to meet with Bally. During that meeting we chopped it up about music, the world and life. Two dudes from different parts of the world who shared a common interest in good music. Bally invited me back the next day and we began recording the songs that would eventually become this album. It was such a carefree and magical time and I feel we captured that essence and put it into the music. Many of the sessions consited of smoking Amnesia, drinking black coffee and playing old school video games on a hacked computer.These are some of the songs that we recorded and are now releasing for the public to listen to and enjoy. Ballantyne and Hash Mills are Black Amnesia.
