Producer, writer, drummer, MC, DJ, jack-of-all-trades, master of none, J-Zone presents the latest installment in his limited quantity, half-instrumental-half-rap 7” single series. “I Smell Smoke” is an up-tempo (by current standards), psych-inspired instrumental that employs a mixture of raw live drums (with break), campy ‘60s anti-drug propaganda, bizarre organs and off-the-wall chants. The tune closes and the tempo ramps with a bonus b-boy break that features Zone on both drums and bass in the spirit of James Brown. Then a funky conga player jumps into the groove. You may want doubles.

The b-side/vocal cut, “Time For A Crime Wave,” sees J-Zone and his sidekick, Chief Chinchilla, ruthlessly (albeit humorously) addressing gentrification, police brutality and the music business over brash clavinets and lock-step marching drums.
