Tyranny & Tone - Playtime Is Over EP (Side A/Side B Effect Gold/Black Coloured Vinyl)


Recorded a year before the B Flatt - Back to Basics album, I proudly present to you the Tyranny & Tone - Playtime Is Over EP originally recorded in 1995.


Produced by producer extraordinaire Noiseman, this project represents the 1st initial work between Tyranny, Tone and Noiseman. Operating from a Bay Area based studio, the three recorded S.T.E.P.H. Short for Stephanie, the song is a lyrical nod to relationship situations. Playtime Is Over was later recorded in 1995 at a new studio location.


The signature sound created during these recordings, helped to shape the flavor you hear on the B Flatt "Back to Basics" album.


Produced by Noiseman on an Akai S1100 and Ensoniq EPS-16+, then mixed on a Soundcraft 24 track board. Vocals were recorded on a Tascam MS-16 1" Tape Machine. The vibe and bass melodies for S.T.E.P.H. were organically arranged using sampled tones from records, laid out as individual notes on the keyboard.


Limited to only 200 copies on Gold/Black Mixed colour vinyl!
