On the first episode since their one-year anniversary, Tonedeff and PackFM chop it up about Street Fighter tournament peripherals, fairy tails, answer listener mail and more. Most importantly, the two announce the date for the final QN5 Megashow, August 16.
With an exclusive theme song provided by QUINTIC recording artist Fjer, Tonedeff and PackFM celebrate the one year anniversary of their ongoing Tacos & Chocolate Milk podcast (check all previous episodes here) with talk of suicide hotlines, hood health foods, Temple Run and more.
“The three deepest draws of my life from very early on were Hip Hop, visual art and pornography,” Tonedeff explains, “I wrote this album during the darkest period of my adult existence. I didn’t make this record for shock value’s sake – but as a way to get it all out of my system in one shot – explicit scars and all.”
A brand new project from Tonedeff? Crazy! If you’ve been a long-time fan, you’d know days like this are few and (way too) far between. And for his second full-length album, Tone is packaging four separate EPs that he’ll be dropping throughout the year in an effort to showcase each facet of his personality.
Polymer will consist of 4 separate EPs. Each EP presents a different face or “molecule” of Tonedeff. (Think Voltron, but without the lions). Each EP will be denoted by the Polymer icon located on each cover, with a new molecule filled-in for each release. EP’s 1 through 3 will be released digitally, with the fourth exclusively available on the final assembled version of the physical collector’s edition of Polymer. All music on the project has been produced synthetically to follow along the idea of an actual Polymer’s synthetic structure. Pre-orders available now.
Glutton is the first EP to be released and it deals with the concept of excess and addiction over self-produced uptempo tracks. Take a listen and download after the jump.
Holy shit, look who’s finally dropping an album (of sorts). While it’s not the full-length that QN5 fans have been clamoring for, I don’t know, roughly eight years (yet; keep reading), it is however the first in a series of four EPs that will ultimately combine to create his long-awaited sophomore album Polymer. Glutton drops February 26th; check out the tracklisting for the project down bottom.

For the 26th episode of Tonedeff and PackFM’s Tacos & Chocolate Milk podcast, the two decided to jump on LiveStream and give the fans an interactive experience during the recording session. In the episode (which can be downloaded here), Tone and Pack swap poop stories and take a slew of fan questions.
Picking up where we left on in Part One, CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, DJ FlipFlop and yours truly ventured to Stockholm, Sweden; Helsinki, Finland; and Arhus, Denmark to finish up the Oneirology Euro Tour II with a bang. Highlight of the last three shows? The insanity that went down once “Lynguistics” dropped in Stockholm. The crowd went apeshit to say the least. Great times.
Tonedeff and PackFM kick off their new year with the 24th episode of their ongoing Tacos & Chocolate Milk podcast. Recorded earlier today, the two talk about their new year’s resolutions, being right about everything, anarchy and take a healthy dose of listener mail.
Last year, I had the pleasure of joining CunninLynguists, Tonedeff and DJ FlipFlop across seas as part of the Oneirology Euro Tour II. This was the third of four tours I’ve went on with these guys and probably one of my most memorable. To this day, I’ll forever be in debt to them as they gave me a chance to see the world. I mean hell, before the first tour I had only been as far as Toronto. Now, I’ve got stamps in my passport that will forever bring back memories of great times. All sensitive shit aside, we finally put together the footage that I shot during the trip (shouts to Deacon on the editing). Part one features shows in Copenhagen, Denmark; Lund, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; Bergen, Norway, my troubles at the airport and other such antics. Part two will complete the tour, and it will be posted sometime next week. Enjoy.
On the 21st episode of Tonedeff and PackFM’s Tacos & Chocolate Milk podcast (which was originally intended to be recorded during our stop in Toronto) features CunninLynguists’ Kno. As always, hilarity ensues with talks of how they would destroy the world, reciting Marky Mark word for word (no… seriously), how “Never Come Down” came about (and much it bangs live), upcoming projects and much more.
CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, Sadistik, DJ FlipFlop and myself are finally hitting the home stretch of our tour of Canada land. And after a 25-hour drive through the country we are finally in Toronto and the guys are ready to rock The Opera House tomorrow night. Show is just about sold out, so if you still need a ticket I suggest you hit up Ticketmaster and purchase yours now.
11.17 – Toronto @ The Opera House
11.19 – Ottawa @ Ritual
11.20 – Montreal, QC @ Blue Dog
