Producer Juliano 'Recordkingz' Creator dropped his first album under the name The Creators – 'The Weight' back in 2000. Now the long-awaited sequel 'Heavyweight' has finally arrived, boasting artists such as Little Brother, Guilty Simpson, The Beatnuts, Joell Ortiz and Evidence (of Dilated Peoples).
The first banger to be lifted from 'Heavyweight' is the sure fire hitter, 'Heat' featuring Queensbridge natives Mobb Deep. Juliano says, 'We found out that we could do a Mobb Deep record at like 2am when we where with Havoc, Prodigy and Alchemist in a hotel in London after a show. The only problem was that we had to go to Paris where a studio was booked the next day. So we booked a ferry, jumped in the car with a MPC and disks and off we went. 36 hours later without any sleep, Havoc and Prodigy had laced the record, Storm had signed it off and were gone'.
Due to the UK's crate digger ever expanding record collection, he decided to set up Recordkingz.com, which is an invaluable source of rare jazz, soul, Eastern European, Asian and Hip Hop for record collectors and producers alike.
