"BEAUTIFUL NEW MUSIC BY MY BROTHER @xpartysuppliesx AND I. ADD @BlackAtlass AND WE HAVE A MASTERPIECE..." @ActionBronson exuberantly Tweeted, along with a link to the Billboard premier of "The Light In The Addict." It was seemingly debuted live at a colorful Sonos Studios/Soundcloud showcase held about a week or so ago, wherein "PS frontman Justin Nealis [was] clad in jogging shorts and a David Lee Roth tee, while Bronson sported a Brazilian flag doo rag." "The Light In The Addict" will likely be included amongst a gaggle of previously unreleased Soundcloud-debuted loosies on Party Supplies' long-rumored Tough Love vinyl/CD re-issue, which is currently slated for a November 25th release on Fool's Gold Records. Party Supplies simply summed up the track's underlying theme as "nothing is perfect... It's the sound of hope and survival and the crossroads of good and bad," when recently speaking with Billboard.
Nealis himself likened "The Light In The Addict," or at least it's scat-singing close-out riff, to Van Morrison's 1977 chart-topper, "Moondance." Not unlike Action Bronson & Party Supplies' most recent genre-blending collaboration, "Easy Rider," their latest creation could be described as off-kilter Hip-Hop; borrowing more characteristic elements from Psych-Rock and Blues-Smooth Jazz than traditional sample-based Golden Era Hip-Hop. Bronson and Fool's Gold Records' own budding crooner, Black Atlass take turns belting out hyper-emotive lines like, "I nearly lost my mind... All a mothaf*cka got is time, time, time" over Party Supplies' billowing piano-laden instrumental, in what has quickly become one of my personal favorite moments during "The Light In The Addict"'s all too short 5-minute run-time. Ahead of Tough Love's long-awaited November 25th re-release, Action Bronson & Party Supplies' former critically-acclaimed Blue Chips 1-2 mixtapes are currently available online for your mass consumption and enjoyment.
