Detroit producer and Danny Brown collaborator Leonard Ware, aka Drummer B, has released a new video and details on an upcoming release.

Titled Space Bounce, the project — the follow-up to last year's The People Mover — includes seven tracks recorded at United Sounds studios in Detroit. It features jazz great Allen Barnes (who is also Ware's uncle).



According to a press release, the album has co-signs from Underground Resistance's Cornelius Harris and Detroit techno legend Derrick May, who reportedly responded to unwittingly hearing the tracks by saying, "You know what I like? You didn't say 'Hey man, check out my shit.' You didn't have to force the music. It spoke for itself."

Check out the video for "Time Travel" below — a fitting name, as the track is sort of a time travel through old school techno, ghetto tech, house, and hip-hop influences. Enjoy:


And here's the Ron Zakrin-designed cover art, which will be featured on limited edition hand-embellished vinyl records through 1xRun.com in 2017:
