Latex Diamond & A. Cheeze ‎– S​.​W​.​E​.​A​.​T​.​ (LP)

S.W.E.A.T. (South West European Amplifierburstin’trilladistical Tunes) ​is the name of the brand new release from Latex Diamond​, O.G. member of the long-lived Madrid-based record label Ugly Workz and his partner in crime, the acclaimed Spanish talkboxer and producer Sholo Truth. Considered to be the originators of the Spanish G-Funk sound, they’ve joined forces with ​A. Cheeze​, the Madrider M.C. with a deep voice and smooth tunes from the record label CIO Ent., for an international, cross-generational and transatlantic trip into the southern sounds of the United States from the 90’s and 00’s.

S.W.E.A.T. ​is a project of ​9 cuts ​full of tradition and grillz and made under DJ Screw’s long-cast shadow, crossing the Atlantic Ocean to the South of Europe, and turning S.W.E.A.T. instantly into a Spanish dirty south classic.

To make ​”S.W.E.A.T.“​, they have collaborated with a wide variety of artists in Spain and abroad-such as the Valencia-based R&B singer T. Dom, the soul and gospel singers Natacha Kanga (France) and Montreea (Houston, TX) and Sholo Truth, who provided the kick-start signal for the project on the cut ​“Home (OG’s del barrio)”​. ​”S.W.E.A.T.” is produced by Spanish and European producers as well; producers like Ochoa, Sholo Truth, Mr. Cashanova, or Keith Dramn (Spain) as well as Heartbeatz and Milo Deezy (Germany), who are known for working with other recognized names in America’s Hip Hop scene such as Rittz, Scarface, MJG, Devin The Dude or Bizzy and Kayzie Bone of Bone Thugs n’ Harmony, among others.

As a celebration of the release, ​CheckItOut Ent​. has released a ​limited Vinyl edition (limited to 200 copies) of “S.W.E.A.T.” that can be purchased on their official Bandcamp page.

Prior to the album’s release, a video of the single ​“Home (OG’s del barrio)” produced by and featuring Sholo Truth, was published, filmed by Ele and Ochoa.
