Urban Legend Set EP Release

Dynamic production duo, J-Radical and Kool Kojak, AKA Urban Legend, are gearing up for the release of their new EP, Tropical Techniques. The joint is slated for a February 16 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?

THE GENESIS OF URBAN LEGEND: The two first met in the Ft. Green section of Brooklyn, NY at Moe's bar. Upon being introduced by super producer Dr. Luke (best known for his work with platinum-plus artists Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Ke$ha, Avril Lavigne), both producers hit it off instantly. It turned out that Kojak thought J-Radical's new kicks were "dope". "Ever since I saw him rocking those Air Force 1's, I knew he was down by law", quips Kojak. "We had an instant connection," he adds with a smirk.

The two soon found themselves holed up in J-Radical's Hollywood studio making tracks until all hours. Both with a penchant for Latinas, the obvious move: "to just be a couple of white boys making a Latino record." Since both cats were already making a name for themselves on a solo tip, the natural thing to do was to come together like some rum-soaked Wonder Twins and set out for a musical path of destruction.
