New Protest Album by MC Hijack

Today, the 5th of November, Louisville is for Lovers is proud to announce the release of longtime Louisville hip hop recording artist (as a part of the electronic music duo Team Totoro) MC Hijack's first solo effort, the Truth Church EP. Released on November 5th in support of those who fight daily against injustice and inequality.

 This album was created by Hijack using the nearly forgotten art of break beat turntablism; This technique of music making was the catalyst for the early Bronx incubator of American Hip Hop. Funk, Soul, and Disco were the primary records used in break beating; as what was primarily used on this album.

 Truth Church was released on Nov. 5th by Louisville Is For Lovers in partnership with The Electric Church Of The Tambourine in an ongoing series of protest and activist music. All releases in this series are FREE of charge.
