Dotmatic has been extremely busy in the studio cooking up some tasty treats. Reminiscent of his highly acclaimed debut album The City Dotmatic puts his own twist on hip hop and soulful beats all packed into a 45 vinyl record.
A rather quiet fellow we were able to sneak into the studio and copy some notes he left laying around that described the tracks on It’s Yours…
