Turn on the Redlight... King

A combination of rock and hip hop, the album conjures old school sounds, thanks to Mark Kasprzyk aka "Kaz" and producers Wally Gagel and Xandy Barry, as well as the good vibes at Hollywood’s TGG Studios (now known as Wax Studios; alums include Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and, yes, Neil Young). “I’m all about mixing in the old sounds,” Kaz says, “and giving it that warm, analog feel. There is sampling, hip hop grooves and beats, but I also wanted good old fashioned meat and potatoes: bass, guitar, drums.”

In the smashing hip-hop flavored debut single, “Old Man,” Kaz offers a reluctant salute to his father, a larger-than-life figure who taught school during the day and raced stock cars at night (“The life he demanded/Kept us all in a struggle/When he ruled with his fist/It kept us all out of trouble”). “No father issues here,” says Kaz with a laugh.

Here's the Official Redlight King Video for their debut song "Old Man":
