Legendary producer Pete Rock has released a collection of original, never-used-before instrumental tracks aptly titled “The Return Of The SP1200. The album is available in vinyl, CD and digital formats.
The title pays homage to Pete’s favorite production tool, the SP1200. Largely used by hip hop producers during the so-called Hip Hop Golden Era, the SP1200 remains Pete Rock’s drum machine of choice. Immediately after the release, Pete has embarked on a European Tour that will keep him overseas through the middle of May.
The special album cover art was designed by comic artist Sanford Greene. Greene has worked in comics and related industries for over 9 years. His clients include Disney, DC Comics, SEGA, Nickelodeon, Hasbro, Warner Brothers, Fox, and Marvel Comics.
His most recent work includes a french graphic album for Humanoid Publishing and a Spiderman children book for Disney/Marvel Publishing. His current creator-owned projects are “Rotten Apple,” which is published by Dark Horse Comics, and “1000,” which he is doing for MTV.
