The fourth studio album from Kristoff Krane!
Check out the first single "Wild Wild West" featuring Sage Francis & Sadistik!
Below is a Q&A with Kristoff Krane, for those interested in learning more about the album:
When was fanfaronade created and finished?
The first song was recorded in August of 2010. The record was completed in February of 2011. It's entirely produced by a German producer, Jaq, with the exception of "Got High" which is produced by Big Cats!
Who are the features and why?
I am absolutely privileged to announce that the album includes features by veterans, artists responsible for laying the foundation of underground hip-hop: Sage Francis, Buck 65 and Illogic (I have been listening to these guys since I was young and have been extremely influenced by them).
It also includes a handful of new-age underground rappers who I believe are part of the next wave of successful DIY movement: Crescent Moon (Kill The Vultures), Ceschi, Sadistik, Joe Horton (No Bird Sing) and Mike Schank (Sector 7G). I chose these features because I thoroughly respect the hone approach that all of these artists have when it comes to how they express themselves, and also because they are artists who have influenced the way I make art and how I have spread that art to the world over the past five years.
I specifically wanted these folks on the album because I believe all of them could relate to being in a position where as a result of not making gimmicky, super-accessible art, they all know what it feels like to be underappreciated and overlooked, standing by while others, whose art shows less of their heart, receive a standing ovation again and again.
