DJ Element, one of the members of the great Brown Bag AllStars crew, is releasing his debut effort as a producer, Reality, Kings & Reason today. “Complex Individuals” is the first single from Element’s debut, and it features guest posts from Sene, Scienze and the Audible Doctor, who also served as the album’s executive producer. 

DJ Element’s beat personally reminds me a bit of Mecca and the Soul Brother-era Pete Rock and CL Smooth, and The Low End Theory-era A Tribe Called Quest – it has a a cool, jazzed out vibe.
