Product Details
2011 debut album from Los Angeles producer KONE now available on limited edition cassette.

KONE's unique blend of "psychedelic gangster funk" contains equal parts assembly of samples, heavy fluid basslines, signature big dirty drums and sinewy synths that recall the early days of Los Angeles rap, without being derivative. This is modern beat music, freed from any constraints to a particular sound. His music walks the fine line between the electronic and organic, drawing on influences from American jazz to Mongolian folk and Hungarian psyche; vinyl diggers will have a fun time trying to put this album back together.

The album title The Tractatus refers to an important philosophical work of language and logic by Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the music is an interpretation of this idea, subtly a celebration of life.

"Our life has no end in just the same way as our visual field has no limits" KONE says, hoping that the listener will take away more than just a sore neck from this record.
