'Lightweight Heavy', Fat Jon's third solo offering, is a concoction of "loping beats, dub bass lines, classical piano, breathy vocals and sparkling harmonies..." (BBC). From the gentle piano-led intro of 'Talk to Me' and threading through the album's 14 dazzling tracks, Fat Jon's subtle use of vocals and his bass-heavy beats take listeners on a heartfelt journey. "I lived in Japan while I made this record and produced the whole album there. Being able to make a project like this from beginning to end the way I had envisioned it was a dream come true," Jon reflects. "I recorded and produced the whole album in my friend Nujabes' studio. I told him about my concept for the album, and he said I could use his studio while I was there. We had similar studio setups so it was a very easy transition and fun experience." We are very pleased to announce that 'Lightweight Heavy' is getting it's first vinyl reissue via YHS Records, a vinyl-focused imprint of Detroit label Young Heavy Souls.
