    It's a CD. It comes shrink-wrapped in a plastic jewel case full of super-awesome artwork that I made myself. It includes a free Grip Grand sticker (while supplies last). You'll love it.

about

GRIP GRAND -- ALL AGES

Once upon a time...

My love of records began when I was a kid, and many of the LP's my parents played me--superhero stories, fairy tales, silly songs and sing-alongs--are still in my collection. ALL AGES was created as a way to share those memories with my own children, while at the same time acquainting them with the music I make myself.

ALL AGES might be suitably subtitled "A Child's Introduction to Hip-Hop Production" (of the sample-based sort, anyway). Every sound on the album was sourced from either dusty children's records (the foundation of my own musical journey) or from seminal breakbeats (the bedrock of hip-hop sonics): The majority of what you hear comes straight from my kiddie crates, but for extra boom-bap I turned to the neck-snapping drums that are the building blocks--the ABC's and 123's--of so many hip-hop classics.

This album is a love letter to sampling and sound collage; to the weird, warped, wobbly sounds of vintage children's vinyl; and, most of all, to my kids, for inspiring and sharing these songs with me. I hope you and yours will enjoy ALL AGES as much as we do.
