EL DA SENSEI (of the Artifacts) and K-DEF (of Real Live) both New Jersey natives, came together to record a series of songs 8 years ago as ‘The Enforcers’. SLICE OF SPICE worked together with K-DEF and GHETTOMAN BEATS to bring these back to life on vinyl as ‘The Jersey Connection’. Whether you grab a picture disc or that sick color-in-color version, you can’t go wrong!

Twenty years ago, WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS was asked to record an audio version of his favorite parts of ‘Naked Lunch’. Longtime associates and producers Hal Willner and James Grauerholz produced several sessions, and they recruited a team of world class musicians to help. The recordings were then abandoned and collecting dust on a musty shelf, as forgotten as a piece of rancid ectoplasm on a peepshow floor, until now! Find out more from KHANNIBALISM/ERNEST JENNING RECORD CO. and immerse yourself the “Negrogothic” movement!
