Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Vast Aire, remember him? He's the titan MC who shocked the world and conquered critics as the leader of Definitive Jux's landmark upstart crew, Cannibal Ox; their essential 2002 debut, Cold Vein, was a chart-topper in nearly every smart music critic's year-end poll.

After quickly following up his critically-acclaimed 2004 solo-debut, Look Mom…No Hands, with two Martial Arts inspired Way Of The Fist mixtapes and after a few years scratching his collaborative itch (2005’s The Best Damn Rap Show with High & Mighty’s DJ Mighty Mi and in 2007, Vast joined forces with Karniege under the pseudonym Mighty Joseph and released Empire State) Vast returns with his sophomore solo-LP, Dueces Wild, which will be released on 6-24-08 on One Records.

With guest appearances from Camp Lo’s Gecchi Suede (“The Dynamic Duo”), Copywrite (“Give Me That Mic”) and a Pete Rock produced Cannibal Ox reunion track (“Mecca And The Ox”) Vast concluded the recording sessions for Dueces Wild supremely confident with the music he had created as he states “I put the letter “U” before the “E” in the LP title because I have paid my dues and this is the best music I have ever made. This project is about the power of the number 2 and the truth and the balance of the Ying-Yang. The number 2 influences many facets of our lives; this my sophomore solo-LP (second solo-LP), your Mom and dad are “two,” you and the love of your life are “two,” life and death, good and bad, night and day, love and hate are all interrelated with the number “two”.

Dueces Wild is primarily produced by Melodius Monk, a multi-talented producer, vocalist and lyricist from the streets of Brooklyn, Monk grew up with Vast and in fact has been making music with Vast as far back as Cannibal Ox’s inception and he helped craft Dueces Wild retro-sonic/alternative Trip-Hop feel.

In the card game of life, any deck of cards can reveal pain, power, pleasure, misery, poverty, life and death. There are many choices you can make, but the final outcome ultimately depends on making the most out of those cards. Dueces Wild is truly a full deck of wild cards!
