Deadstock. The original definition is “the machinery used on a farm, as opposed to the livestock.”
The millennial definition, however? “Brand New. Never worn, Never tried and would usually include a box for the shoes.”
JAMLA producer E. Jones imagines his soul-fused sonics as Deadstock, giving his latest instrumental project that moniker. Circling around his love of sneakers, the project from The Soul Council member (Rapsody) comes in at a hefty 30 songs with fellow JAMLA affiliate GQ opening up things on “From the Shoes Up.” Stream the project in its entirety below, and cop a copy on iTunes.
