It's no secret Action Bronson likes to work with a single producer/production team for a project. Since 2011, we've seen Bam Bam rock with Statik Selektah on Well Done, Harry Fraud on Saaab Stories, Alchemist on Rare Chandeliers and Party Supplies with Blue Chips and Blue Chips 2.
Looking forward though, it looks like Action might be working with two of his previous collaborators, Alchemist and Party Supplies.
During a conversation with HHDX, the production duo revealed that all three parties recorded an EP worth of material under the name Jericho.
We went out to LA with [Bronson] last month—me, him, Alchemist, and Sean recorded an entire EP of material under the name Jericho. Jericho may be a project that we drop, that’s really under-the-table, no one knows about that yet. Jericho may just be like a multi-genre, no label EP that may cross genres from Hip Hop to Electro to ‘80s Pop. We may bridge the gap with that actually, because some of the stuff we recorded for that, one of the songs sounds like a late ‘80s Smokey Robinson record and shit. And then, there’s some Surf Rock on there that sounds like the Beach Boys and Bronson’s rhyming on it. Alchemist made the beat. We rented pianos and keyboards. We rented a Wurlitzer, we rented a bass, we rented a few guitars and shit. We recorded a lot of original material that kind of has a very Electro sound and we’re calling it Jericho.
While we wait for this sure-fire music, Bronson's latest project Blue Chips 2 is available now.
UPDATE: Quickly after the report hit the rumor mill, Action Bronson debunked the EP idea. As said in a statement to XXL, the collective are in fact working together, with Oh No and Tommy Mas included as well, but nothing is official.
It’s nothing official. It’s a collective a people—Oh No, Sean [Mahon] who is also in Party Supplies, Tommy Mas. It’s just a collective of people of human beings that make music. Something is gonna come out of it and it’s probably not going to be rap. It’s probably going to be some next level shit. We are in there with all kinds of instruments, fucking frog percussions and shit. Yeah, I’m on the frog percussions! When you hear it, it’s me.
Welp, there goes that. Still... this entire situation has me intrigued.
