Paxico Records is honored to release Ndeed, the next release by Philadelphia based producer, Josh Hey. This 8 track collection was recently given to Paxico by Hey after leaving an alleged 18 hour session recording session. When questioned of what the tape contained, Hey not only didn't reply but seemed to be in some sort of trance state, continuing to walk out in the night.
After being asked again later about a potential release, Hey admitted it sounded like something only he could've created, though he had little to no memory of it. Upon further investigation, the tracks did in fact live only on Hey's computer and stories of his creation of them have been substantiated by many who witnessed that night.
His other projects include Blasphemous Jazz, a compilation album with heavy hitters of the beat scene re-working Miles Davis’s ‘Bitches Brew.’ He's also one half of the Lanky Lad crew with Poptartpete, and has another recent collaboration with the now infamous producer Swarvy.
"Hey is hailed as the David Axelrod of the emerging beat generation. His lush palettes lend his compositions a versatility which never ceases to provoke incessant head nods. Hey's production style has quickly evolved with even more unorthodox time structures and dynamics which have come to be exemplary of his style. It'll be exciting to hear more from him in the future."
"Was and always will be an inspiration for me and every musician he's come into contact with. Damn that dude."
