"It's been a while since we've heard any new material from Lewis. He's been busy in the studio working on his upcoming full length. “When It Rains It Pours” EP is a warm up EP and marks his 20th release with KU. 

Lewis’s sound is hard to compare to another but It wouldn’t be out of place to mention Lewis’s name in the same sentence as producers like DJ Premier, Pete Rock & The Beatminerz. He is forever pushing his sonics to the next level and creating his own sound, taking heavy influence from the “Golden Era” but putting his own musical stamp on it. Over the years he’s become a very sophisticated engineer and has an impressive studio full of old analog equipment, SP-1200’s (of course), bass guitars and more. As usual this entire record has been mixed and mastered by Lewis himself. 

The cover takes it’s influence from classic jazz LP’s (Blue Note etc) and makes use of some great photos taken by Elliot Baxter on a recent shoot at Lewis’s London studio and around the city. The sleeve itself is designed by Bee Graphics." - KingUnderground Records

Available on clear blue vinyl (150 copies) and traditional black vinyl.
Release Date : May 25th 2018

Common - Charms Alarm (Unreleased Version) / U.A.C. Free Style

7" - 2018 - Black Pegasus Music

"Let's take it back 25 years ago on Chicago's south east side on 87th street where you have up and coming M.C. Common Sense recording his debut album with future hip hop music production legends Twilight Tone and No I.D.

'Can I Borrow A Dollar' the debut album heralded a new hardcore jazz sound with non orthodox lyrical imagery and officially putting Chicago on the rap music map! But just like most albums some songs make the final cut while others disappear into obscurity never to be heard.
Luckily Marc Davis, child hood friend of Common Sense now known as Common preserved one of the only recordings of the original Charms Alarm and the U.A.C. Free Style.

Now for the first time these holy Grail songs are debuting on Black Pegasus Records on a super limited edition colored 7inch and part of the newly formed Seven Sense Series.  The new series will be unreleased demos from Common and his original music family and spear headed by Marc Davis and original U.A.C. member David "Moe" Grant." - Black Pegasus Music
