Scorcese Lorde Jones Taps Producer Patchz For ‘Scarface Mahogany’

‘Scarface Mahogany’, the first single from the upcoming collaborative project, ‘Lobster Tales In My Tesla’ features INSUBORDINATE records emcee SCORCESE LORDE JONES waxing poetic reflecting on the glorious highs and chilling lows of the “cocaine 80s lifestyle,” while producer Patchz provides a daunting ‘Vice City’ feel to the track.

Out 21st January on Bandcamp, ‘Lobster Tales in My Tesla’ is a cinematic album created by the duo. Wealth, the glorification of excess, and the realities of the eventual crash are explored in character by Scorcese using his “Lorde Jones” persona. Patchz provides a sample-free soundscape of haunting, paranoid sounds along with triumphant keys to allow Scorcese to dive headfirst into the world of expensive pleasures and broken realities.

Song of the Day: Clouds – INEZ (ft. Clara Kent)

Proud Homewood resident and Pittsburgh native INEZ uses music as a tool to navigate her life. Releasing her debut LP, ‘Voicemails and Conversations’ in December 2019, she follows the project with lead single, Clouds’ – accompanied by a dreamy set of visuals.

A late night groove, ‘Clouds’ is filled with soulful vocals and shimmering synth patterns – whisking you away into a smoky paradise. Richly romantic, “‘Clouds’ is about the newness of a potential courtship, where you are both vulnerable yet open to the possibility and bliss of what could be”

Born to two musical parents, INEZ quickly developed an intense love for the artform. Studying at Berklee College of Music, she prides herself in being a musical polymath – singing, producing, arranging, songwriting, drumming and audio engineering. These skills coalesced into LP, ‘Voicemails and Conversations’ – an audio diary of her navigation of love and growth as a Black woman.

Since its release, INEZ has been featured on NPR Weekend Edition, Bandcamp Daily, and most recently headlined City Theater’s Drive-In Arts Festival. With every release, INEZ hopes to continue using her gifts to uplift, love and create space for Black femmes and women worldwide.

‘Clouds’ is out on all download and streaming sites…check out the video for the mesmerising number below…
