Rorschack and T.O.N.E-z – “Bar Tab” (video) (Premiere)

Hip-hop and EDM meet in the new collaborative album by T.O.N.E-z and Rorschack, Handcuffs.

T.O.N.E-z has already paved a unique for himself as a musician as a member of the Gangstagrass collective, where he helped write the theme song for FX’s Elmore Leonard drama Justified, “Long Hard Times to Come”. For his latest project, he’s teamed up with the Los Angeles producer Rorschack, resulting in the forthcoming album Handcuffs. Below you can watch the debut video from the LP, “Bar Tab”, which marries T.O.N.E-z’s rapping to instrumentation and production that more than tips its cap to the ever-popular EDM genre.

T.O.N.E-z breaks down the idea behind the song simply to PopMatters: “Buying out the bar doesn’t always mean you’re rich.”

Handcuffs is out on 3 March via MalLabel.
