Free Trade + 30

Tru Statement has brought you music from M.A.E., Ayindé, and now Free Trade. Free Trade is the co-founder of Tru Statement and has released his latest project Free Trade - Plus 30. As a producer/emcee Free Trade's blend of Motown, hip-hop, & soul has virgin listeners shocked, jazz heads baffled, and hip-hop purists nodding their heads. A warm mix of sampled vinyl and live instrumentation (guitars, horns, rhodes, turntables, upright bass, etc) is what separates Plus 30 from other hip-hop records. The level of lyricism delivered by Free Trade is a true breath of fresh air; delivering a cadence that follows the footsteps of Pete Rock & CL Smooth , a youthful college sound resembling G Love & Special Sauce, and a vocal tone similar to Mike Posner.

The project was created in a bedroom in Orlando, FL, but included 30 contributors (musicians, designers, engineers) from all over the United States, hence the title of the album Free Trade - Plus 30.

"I contacted as many college students from around the U.S who still believe in honest and soulful music via email, text message, and Facebook, and created an entire album from my bedroom" says Free Trade.
Working within the parameters of new age media, Free Trade was able to have bass lines laid down in St. Louis, jazz samples flipped in the UK, horns tracked in Manhattan, keyboards recorded in Boston, and the list goes on. Most of the musicians involved in Plus 30 had no prior knowledge of one another, nor did they get to hear the final product until the project was finished, creating an unspoken faith between all 30 contributors.
