James Hartley and Delta

I wasn’t able to find much info on the man himself, but James Hartley surely lets his pictures speak for themselves. Hartley has had the pleasure of working with many groups by the looks of his blog, but we’re interested in none other than the ‘Lostralian’ Delta.

The Second Story, Delta tells with help from old friends and new: Mark B, Mojo, The Dap-Kings, Psycho Les, Milano, Prowla and M-Phazes and more. The art apparent on The Lostralian is elevated and polished to perfection. The record excels: darker and more insightful, but at the same time more playful, with verses that have the listener reaching for rewind. In addition, it boasts a production aesthetic that evokes, but never attempts to emulate, the records that originally made hip hop such a powerful force in popular culture.
