Billy Johnston & Gennaro Mastrantonio round out 2012 -- the 20th anniversary year of Black Nation -- with "It's Not My Blow" & "Sound” -- moody, mutli-faceted techno tracks smoldering with six-alarm dance floor fire. Billy and Gennaro work is swiftly heating heads on dance floors from San Fran to Saigon, with original releases and remixes on SLEAZE(UK), BluFIN, Apparel, DEFECTED, & Octopus, to name a few.
On smoke-and-mirrors duty for this EP, Black Nation agent provocateur "MEANSandENDS" delivers two klever interpretations, fresh off the oil-barrel blaze warming his bunker somewhere under the uncharted wilds of Bushwick, Brooklyn’s post-industrial-warehouse favela.
