CSC Funk Band Play Classic Gangstarr Tunes, DJ Friction Salutes Preemo

Release date: April 22, 2017 for Record Store Day

"CSC Funk Band, a 10-piece supergroup featuring members of GWAR, The USA Is a Monster and Talibam!, deliver on their most ambitious undertaking yet with “Above The Starrs,” an all-instrumental homage to the seminal East Coast hip-hop duo, Gang Starr, that consisted of MC Guru and the DJ/producer DJ Premier. In the three years since their last full-length “Funkincense,” was selected for SPIN’s “Record Store Day Shopping Guide: 42 Essential Releases,” CSC’s 10 band members have poured hundreds of hours of studio experimentation into this highly anticipated follow-up album, resurrected from the Fat Beats vaults and originally inspired by a live collaboration with rapper Masta Ace at a Guru tribute concert.

"Above the Starrs" offers an instant rap-geek curio for anyone who likes hearing bands cross the bounds of sample-based and live hip-hop instrumentation. Limited edition of 400 copies on black vinyl. Comes in full-color jacket and includes digital download card."

One-man band DJ Friction pays his own tribute to the Gangstarr sound using two turntables as his instrument for an homage to one of the most prolific Hip Hop producers on a mix set of DJ Premier remixes and non-Gangstarr productions.
