PTP releasing Armand Hammer's Paraffin on cassette, hosting immigrants rights, racial justice benefit TONIGHT

PTP, the NYC-based label known for its masterfully curated catalog of politically charged experimental music (including projects by the likes of TMT favs N-Prolenta, Yatta and Saint Abdullah), has announced it will be releasing a limited-cassette run of Paraffin, the latest album from NYC alt. rap linchpins Armand Hammer (ELUCID + billy woods).

Previously only available as a 180-gram vinyl from billy woods’ Backwoodz Studioz, the album will be available to download via Armand Hammer’s bandcamp or purchase on cassette via PTP’s come August 31 (pre-order here). That is, assuming that all 50 copies of the tape are not sold at tonight’s release party at HOLO in Ridgewood, NY.

A benefit supporting the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), the release party also features sets from King Vision Ultra with Via App and Yatta, Grey Wulf, Dreamcrusher and Bonnie Baxter. Armand Hammer’s headlining slot will be accompanied by a video installation from performing-arts collective BKLYN ZULU.

The show is the latest in a series of “Silent Weapons” events presented by PTP, which raise funds for organizations that provide resources and assistance to underserved communities in New York. Tickets are available for tonight’s event here.
