Seattle,WA/ July 9, 2013- Black Stax releases their latest work in the form of a LIVE album on July 23, 2013.
 
From the debut album, ‘Talking Buildings’ , to the first installment of the Producer Series, ‘High Rhyme Smoking Jackets’ produced by Rob Castro. To now, their newest release, 'Black Stax LIVE at the Triple Door'. Black Stax gets a chance to showcase their skills over live instrumentation.
 
This project comes from the work with TAF (Technology Access Foundation), STEM+Art event held in Seattle, Wa at the famed Triple Door on May 23rd, 2013. Black Stax works with a 5-piece band, Klyntel, DJ Sean Malik and background vocals from LaTanya Horace. All this comes together as they flex over soul , rock-n-roll , blues , jazz , reggae , African drum and Hip-Hop. The experience and fullness of this performance should open the eyes and ears of those who just love ‘good’ music. And, always wanted to know what a Black Stax live show consist of. 
 
Here is the single from the live album, ‘They want Me’. Its time for Black Stax to flex their muscle and show the World that they can ‘Get Stronger’!!

We’re always thankful to Lady Flava for  Flava News Radio for supporting our projects with her new radio show “Breakin BS.”  This week we’re breaking a new track called Black English.  

hard hitting track with the parabell and riddle rhyme pattern of the unorthodox masters, Jace & Blak. Its a song that you have to break down the mystery of the lyrics while you bob your head to the rthymn and tone of the beat.”I don’t wanna rap no more”…is it a statement of finality or raising the bar?. Produced by Raw Fingers and recorded & mixed at ATB Studios by Rob Castro.’
