Watch Henry Canyons’ Video For “Offshoots” & Download New Album

Premiered by Potholes In My Blog this morning, Backwoodz Studioz is excited to welcome Henry Canyons to the team & announce the release of his debut; One Thousand Plateaus!!

“Offshoots” is the first single from Backwoodz Studioz artist Henry Canyons’ new free EP, One Thousand Plateaus. Produced by Boom Baptist, this video is a first look at an exciting new addition to the Backwoodz roster. Download his EP here, it features additional production by Backwoodz standouts Willie Green and Essex Dogs, as well as a billy woods guest feature! Check it out now…

Over the course of five tracks, the Brooklyn-bred, LA based MC lays out his unique artistic vision on One Thousand Plateaus. Effortlessly melodic flows and witty wordplay find purchase over a lush soundscape provided by BoomBaptist, Willie Green and Essex Dogs; Canyons work here is at once stylish and cerebral. Describing his thought process on the EP, Henry Canyons said “One Thousand Plateaus is not a narrative or anecdotal piece.  Yes, there are stories inside the songs, but overall it acts as a display of a current state of affairs, at least how I see them.  Inspired by Deleuze and Guattari’s book of sociological theory under the same title, the EP is my interpretation of their writings on social structure; particularly that of the rhizome.  Difficult to pinpoint and directly define, the rhizome is a free flowing network of beings and systems that move fluidly through time and space completely free of hierarchy.  Everything is an expression of multiplicity, the constant flow of desire, momentum, ebb and flow.  Because of the perpetual motion and lack of hierarchical structure, there is no order or formula to how one must exist or consume.” Check out the EP now…


Willie Green presents “Days of Future Past”

Willie Green has a lot of songs. A lot like “200 in the past six years” a lot.

That’s what Willie Green told Mo Niklz when he asked him to mix this compilation. The idea of narrowing down this many songs to the best 30 was a bit daunting; they finally threw in the towel, leaving the final track count at 38. But hell, if those last eight were so good that they couldn’t keep them off, hopefully you’ll find a way to forgive them.

From Willie Green, “I gave Mo a lot of license picking which songs would make it; I sent him a relatively short list of ‘must-includes’ and told him to surprise me. The result is a solid hour of some of my favorite cuts, along with some unheard gems, featuring Junclassic, Warren Britt, the Bronx up-and-comer Deshawn Supreme, and rap legend General Steele of Boot Camp Clik.”

These are songs Willie Green either produced or remixed. Every beat here is produced by Willie Green. The download includes liner notes with stories about each song. We hope you enjoy…

WILLIE GREEN presents… FOUR SEASONS

A nod to Vivaldi’s violin concertos of the same name, Willie Green and Backwoodz Studioz release the first movement of the Four Seasons beat tape series. Spring (Movement 1) is a 20-minute blend of instrumentals inspired by/perfect for the impending warm weather. A departure from the dialogue heavy Dirty Jordans and Of Heroes & Villains…, Spring is strictly beats, a great backdrop for stoop sales, BBQ’s and all the things you can’t wait to do when the weather is right.

Cape Verde Physical Release

Dirty Jordans Available Now!

Ironically, the follow up to Willie Green’s acclaimed …Of Heroes and Villains, (July ’09 – Backwoodz Studioz) Dirty Jordans is technically the prelude. Completed a year prior to the New England producer’s debut, Dirty Jordans was held back once the Flight Brothers started mining the instrumental album for beats.  Created from ’07 – 08, Dirty Jordans is a 30 track instrumental companion piece to the Super Chron Flight Brothers upcoming LP, Cape Verde.  The album includes a number of beats that also appear on Cape Verde, so Backwoodz Studioz will be releasing the projects one week apart with Jordans on June 15th and Cape Verde on the 22nd. A departure from the storyline concept of …Of Heroes and Villains, Dirty Jordans is a stream of consciousness project, a wide selection of beats with movie and television samples abound.  The album features Green’s alter-ego Baron Silas Greenback, alter-alter-ego David Lopan, and a host of other “guests.”

Willie Green is based out of Brooklyn, NY and possesses an impressive production resume including Cannibal Ox, LuckyIAm, Reks, Naledge (of Kidz In The Hall), MarQ Spekt and many more.  As in-house producer/engineer for Backwoodz Studioz, Green has a number of upcoming projects with the label, including a one MC/one producer project with New Jersey’s HiCoup titled Guerrilla Jones, production on the upcoming billy woods solo effort History Will Absolve Me, and work on New York based emcee Premonition’s debut The Build.
