Hit + Run's 777 LP
- February 27, 2014
In the store | HIT+RUN - 777
2/LP with J Rocc, Gaslamp Killer, Kutmah, Knx, Ras G, Jeremiah Jae & crew. Check the photos for multi colored vinyl.
One of the best series of records in 2013 was here in Los Angeles: HIT+RUN, the silkscreen crew who is a part of the musical fabric of the L.A. beat scene released seven small-run 7-inch vinyl singles to celebrate their 7th anniversary. Each single was filled with exclusive songs by 'mystery producers,' pressed on colored vinyl and housed in a screen printed jacket.
And now, the 29 tracks have been compiled onto this very special double LP by Hit+Run called 777. Each of the records is pressed on one-of-a-kind two-color vinyl (red/blue, bone/gold). The LP cover art features a collage of all 14 screen printed "777" singles featuring self-portraits of each producer. 800 copies are being made.
The track list is below. Photography by B+, Jason Barbegelott, Jesse Elias, Nassirah Nelson and Marcoso Oliva; design by Brandy Flower.
This is not Hit+Run's first involvement with vinyl. See: Madlib Medicine Show LP series, Dublab's Secondhand Sureshots, Dub Club's dub vinyl.
