THE NEW ALBUM
The latest album from Nickel and Dime Ops is a very special project called Resuscitation Music. The album was completely funded by supporters of the band through crowd funding. This enabled the band to record at Big Orange Sheep Studios in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The studio was chosen because of it's ideal layout which features four isolation booths and one main room. This enabled the band to record a studio quality album in a live setting. The result was magic. Dime Ops recorded an unprecedented thirteen new tracks in one day!
The album was produced by Mic Nickels, with lyrics written by the band's frontman as well. Several special guest vocalists are featured including two time 2018 Grammy nominated Jean Baylor, Phantom Vanity, Camille Thurman, Milton Suggs, and (Madame Secretary) Victoria Cave. The driving force behind Resuscitation Music was the desire to make really great music, and present a powerful hip hop album that could be fun, but also have an inspiring message. "Resuscitation" commences as you listen. This album is meant to wake the masses from their slumber.
For the past decade, Nickel and Dime Ops front man has written and recorded 5 full length albums. His two solo boom bap hip albums, The Journey of Plato the Orphan and The Disease, The Cure, and The Promise, are critically acclaimed underground classics. Tragedy & Comedy is an experimental live band album that lead to the formation of Nickel and Dime Ops. The Soulygamist is Nickel and Dime Ops first official album produced by Ian Hendrickson-Smith from The Roots. Their sophomore follow up, Resuscitation Music, is produced and written by Mic Nickels, and represents the culmination of growth that the band has experienced together over the past eight years.
