Although it’s a fairly new explosion of rappers joining forces with electronic producers to put together an album, Dell Harris is no stranger to this kind of collaboration. Having worked with Party Like Us mastermind AC Slater for some time now, the two have really been able to create a strong and efficient bond that showcases their efforts and unique abilities on quite a few releases. Many are familiar with their AC & Dell collab, “Right Now,” and this time Dell Harris is back with a full album. Having AC on the production tip allows for a noticeable and exciting flow, and the ATLien raps with an intelligent but slightly cheeky demeanor over ACs signature bass lines and engaging instrumentals. With production cameos from Xaphoon Jones and vocal cameos from Megan Thomas, Ced Hughes, and Stephan Christopher, the album travels through 9 tracks that truly envelop Dell’s “Right Now” demeanor. Be it raps about his girl or his difficulty remembering last night, the underlying presence of “living in the now” leaves the listener with a deeper appreciation for the present.
Our friend Cru Joness headed over to Atlanta to meet up with Dell and friends in anticipation for the record, capturing the charm and friendship shared between everyone on the album. From the graphic designer to the partiers to the producers and everyone between, Dell seems to have a strong team under his wings.
You can, of course, go ahead and purchase the album through iTunes here. But as an added bonus, AC and Dell have kindly provided the title track “Volume II” for you to download for free. Get hyped.
