New duo, DJ Surebert and MC Landon Wordswell, are releasing the first official single from their forthcoming album, “The Numbers Game.” “The Numbers Game” isn’t just the title track, but reveals the ideas and spirit of the album.
Michael Bernier brought a subtle reggae touch to the song adding to Surebert’s steely production and Wordswell’s rapid-fire rasp. Landon drew inspiration for the record from Michelle Alexander’s thought-provoking and critically acclaimed book, “The New Jim Crow.”
Her ideas and influence are found both in Landon’s lyrical work and his live shows. Conceptually, the album weaves together stories of people affected by “The Numbers Game,” a never-ending cycle of discrimination and economic woes in the United States.
