Tech N9ne’s latest installment of the “Collabos” series, The Gates Mixed Plate, features several tracks produced by Michael “Seven” Summers. Seven produced the single for the album, “O.G.”, as well as the tracks, “PU Wah Wah” and “KC Tea”.
Seven’s tracks have become a mainstay on Strange Music releases over the last five-plus years. He produced twelve tracks on Tech’s critically acclaimed, Everready: The Religion, and his production skills have been featured on every Strange Music release since. Seven’s melodic, piano and orchestra heavy tracks are always laced with clean, bangin’ drum patterns, which provide the perfect backdrop for Tech N9ne and his Strange family to weave their intricate rhyme schemes in and out of. If Strange Music’s process of creating studio albums can be compared to that of a painter creating his or her most significant work of art, then their unmistakable, progressive sound is undoubtedly the galleried masterpiece on display for Hip Hop heads, music lovers and casual listeners around the globe to circle around, critique and admire. Sticking with this comparison, lately it seems as though Seven’s tracks have been the catalyst of that signature sound, the ingredient that quickens the chemical reaction between all of the other musical components, allowing them to harden or cure properly ensuring the quality and durablity that have come to be expected when it comes to a Strange release.
The Gates Mixed Plate, Tech N9ne’s latest release, features the singles “O.G.” and “Jumpin’ Jax”. Tech’s third release in a series of collaborative studio projects coined “Collabos”, features Devin The Dude, Glasses Malone, Jay Rock, Yukmouth and many others. The Gates Mixed Plate is available in stores now.
