Enter the 37th Chamber

Thursday, April 23, 2009 | |

When Brooklyn-favorites El Michael Affairs went on tour with the Wu-Tang Clan in 2006 it was a strange but beautiful love affair between the live music soul/funk band and the legendary Staten Island crew.

Today, the lovechild from this collaboration is out for the world to admire. Enter the 37th Chamber is a full-on instrumental interpretation of classic Wu-Tang tracks. The album is out on Truth and Soul Records, the independent label run by the guys behind El Michaels Affair. Besides their own projects, they're home to the Phenomenal Handclap Band, a great catalog of funk/soul compilations (featuring art direction from Rostarr), and responsible for reviving the career of soul crooner Lee Fields who is dropping his first album on the label this June 2nd!!
