Happy 4:20! J. Brookinz reunites with fellow Heavy Gun co-founder Grey Granite for the highly anticipated sequel Gateway 2!:
On the follow up to his acclaimed album The Gateway Drug: THC, his highness J. Brookinz comes correct with a crew of 28 collaborators and the producer’s take on psy rock. Bringing his typical partner-in-crime Grey Granite into the mix this time around, the duo put together an ensemble cast composed of some of the dopest lyricists in Indianapolis. The project’s incredible collaborative feel came from a 48 hour studio session in which Brookinz and Grey recorded with 20+ musicians. The epic studio lock-in was facilitated by indie rock band The Kemps and the use of their practice space Helter Shelter. This is the perfect album to jam over the upcoming 4:20 holiday, and if you live in Indianapolis, come check out the release party on April 20th at Rock Lobster in Broad Ripple!
Ok ok, it’s a few days late, but what else do you expect from an album dedicated to getting high!
