Montreal’s C4 goes above the cliche’ drop a project hosted by a personality whose name is jacked from a famous icon, to dropping an album hosted by a real life movie legend.
The first full release by Montreal raised producer and songwriter C4 meshes a variety of musical styles into what can only be described as a deliberate assault of the conventional mixtape. Narrated by the Academy Award winning actor, the one and only Christopher Walken, from classic movies such as King Of New York, The Deer Hunter and Pulp Fiction. The C4 Experiment includes 20 tracks featuring over 30 urban artists ranging from Canadian hip hop pioneers such as Choclair, Moka Only and the Black Jays’ Solitair, to up and coming talent like JD Era and Rich Kidd.
The C4 Experiment comes equipped with an interactive website where users are able to browse through Christopher’s fantasy salon and interact with the scenery to play the songs. As you enter the boudoir, you’re encouraged to click on books, cameras, paintings, even empty bottles of Jack Danniels as well as other interesting items that have been left behind.
By logging onto http://www.imyourproducer.com, users are able to access the interactive environment as well as browse the screening room to view C4’s portfolio made up of digital short films, commercials, beat battle performances as well as a comic book inspired two-song music video co-directed and produced by C4 and Ajani Photography.
The 60-minute project also includes appearances by the legendary Montreal DJ A -Trak , Gangstarr ally Bless, Obscure Disorder’s Troy Dunnit, Bad News Brown and Magnum 357 as well as Ontario’s very own King Reign, Mayhem Morearty, Theology 3,Empire Crew and D-Sisive and more.
