Vorad Fils Drops 'Aston Dilla' as Peon

Seekae’s John Hassell released his debut solo album on Feral Media last year – ‘The Warmest Static’, released under the VORAD FILS name. This month sees the release of another solo album, dropped under an entirely different alias – PEON. Hassell has been recording and collaborating as PEON as part of Sydney’s ONEOFOUR COLLECTIVE – a group of local producers who come together regularly to share ideas, perform and release a series of exquisite mixtapes (download for free at oneofour.net).

PEON’s ‘Aston Dilla’ is a collection of 16 tracks that pushes Hassell’s sound in a clear trajectory towards a land inhabited by screwed hip hop vocals, crooked beats and sumptuous electronica. And both fans and haters of Beyonce and Christina Aguilera are sure to find common ground in PEON’s covers of ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us Down’.

And perhaps best of all, ‘Aston Dilla’ is available as a free download.
