House Shoes "Empire" 7 inch (500 Limited)
Originally made available exclusively to subscribers of Wax Poetics Japan, this extremely limited vinyl will be available for purchase for the first time.
"Empire/The Locusts" 7 inch single features personal favorites from House Shoes' recent debut album release Let It Go as well as The Makings compilation.
"Empire", the second track from House Shoes' debut album Let It Go, is the fullest representation of House Shoes from his production to his background. The single showcases something consisting solely of his production, while weaving together a story about the musical movements to come out of Detroit and his continuing efforts to expand the empire of Detroit Hip-Hop.
"The Locusts" from The Makings showcases one of House Shoes' favorite beats that he's created. Using the original 2 track beat tape version first made back 1998-99, the single features the beat in its original, raw form – burned straight to cd from Shoes' MPC2000XL right after making the beat.
"Empire / The Locusts" 7 inch is now available at
