The Clonious – Armoury Hardaway

With The Clonious’ debut Between the Dots finally out in stores, L.A. Record is giving away a track from the album featuring Georgia Ann Muldrow and Dudley Perkins. To give it some more boost, I’m adding another track from a compilation of last year’s Elevate festival (nice line-up!).

If you didn’t know, The Clonious is Vienna-based Paul Mohavedi and together with Dorian Concept one of the signings on Affine Records. His album, however, was released on Ubiquity Records and is available on vinyl and digital formats.

As mentioned before, the track above was taken from a compilation which you can get for free over at zero”. While you’re at it you should also have a look at last year’s edition (Dorian Concept alert!), which also comes for free.
