Twilite Tone - The Clearing
Stones Throw Records
On The Clearing, Tone repurposes motifs from sci-fi to convey the workings of the mind. He explains: “When I allude to ‘space’, I am referring to the mind or the imagination. When I mention ‘robots’, I am referring to the way human beings are programmed based on conformity to their perception of social norms”. Tone showcases his diversity as a solo artist across the album’s 14 transgenre tracks, which range from relaxed beats to house infused with the spirit of Chicago, a modern/new jack new thought new age record.
The album title summarizes Tone’s need to move away from his past and to bring new dimensions into his life: “This project was created to clear and cleanse all the collected debris of the past, whether deemed as so-called good or so-called bad, to allow people to see, hear, and begin to know me.”
