Dotmatic has been extremely busy in the studio cooking up some tasty treats. This year he has been featured twice on the Record Breakin’ Music 5 Year Anniversary compilation, released the first in a new series of seasonal projects with Lullabies for Winter, and now It’s Yours. All this and we are only three months into the year! Reminiscent of his highly acclaimed debut album The City, Dotmatic puts his own twist on hip-hop and soulful beats, all packed into a 45 vinyl record. Apparently a rather quiet fellow was able to sneak into the studio and copy some notes he left laying around that described the tracks on It’s Yours… Check them out after the jump.
Dotmatic gave us some wax to give away, so enter to win a copy of the It’s Yours 7″ single.
