Urban Legend Set EP Release
In the meantime, the guys have been doing their own thing as they prepare for the big release. J-Radical has been busy working on the upcoming film project for Sony Pictures, "Mardi Gras", while Kool Kojak, who is best known for his work on Flo Rida's "Right Round", continues being superproducer Dr. Luke's right hand producer. Recent work includes production on the new albums from rock-hip hop cats, Shwayze and pop sensation Ke#ha.
Tropical Techniques is the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed debut, Tranqulidad Cubana—the aftermath of a dizzying trip to Havana, and numerous red-eyed recording sessions lasting until the break of dawn. The debut EP earned 4 CMJ Top 5 hits with countless spins on tastemaker radio, including KCRW and KPFK. But who the f*** is Urban Legend?

"We had an instant connection," he adds with a smirk.
