Why do we like this?
Though he just hit us with a double single for an upcoming solo album, Black Milk is not slowing down. On the heels of Sunday's Best/Monday's Worst comes the first leak from Synth or Soul.

Black's upcoming instrumental project pits man against machine. The A side is composed of tracks that lean heavy on synthesizers and other cold, machine-like sounds. The B side, as you might expect, is the soul side; drawing from Black's vast catalogue of rare soul records, he chops them in familiar ways to create the soulful Detroit knock we've come to expect.

More than just an awesome instrumental album, Synth or Soul marks the inception of Computer Ugly, Black Milk's creative house. The project is part of a Fuzz, Freq's, Colors series that combines Black's unique take on programmed sounds with equally special visual artists. This first collaboration partners him with Upendo Taylor. As the eponymous site explains:

"Black Milk collaborates with illustrator Upendo "Pen" Taylor (Nike, Leroy Jenkins, Gatorade) for the music-meets-visual instrumental/art series Fuzz, Freqs & Colors(FFC). Synth or Soul is the first volume in the FFC series. The process for each volume starts with Black and Pen trading beats and sketches and refining their works along the way. Throughout that exchange, the music is shaped by the visual art and the visual art is shaped by the music."
