Tony Price - Hit Piece


Tony Price returns to Telephone Explosion Records with the new "Hit Piece" LP. The album is his first full-length since his 2022 release, "IBM CONTRA," on L.I.E.S. Records, and the follow- up to the "Bail Bonds" EP on his Maximum Exposure imprint in May 2023.

In stark contrast to the expansive cybernetics of "IBM CONTRA," "Hit Piece" features 11 dancefloor-ready cuts that are crude, rude, immediate, and unrefined. There are no lofty intentions or concepts here; this is music about action and movement. Eschewing the narrative-driven structures of his previous albums, Tony shifts his focus to the groove, reducing dance music to its rawest textures and core principles. With this project, he unites jackin' house rhythms, early hip-hop bombast, and the hydraulic drive of Motor City funk with a punk rock immediacy and abrasiveness that recalls pre-robot Daft Punk, Todd Terry, Dance Mania, and his L.I.E.S. label mate Delroy Edwards.
