SURPRISE!

It’s ATD29!

The brand new action packed mixtape from ME, your friendly neighbourhood Don! 13 brilliant new songs! On which you’ll mostly find me spitting scriptures over production by OTHER PEOPLE THAN MYSELF (apart from a couple of white hot ATD productions) including Mike Will Made It, Young Chop, Boyz Noise, Erol Alkan, Blockhead and many more, about 60% of which were suggested by YOU!

So thank YOU for your great ideas!

There are also a fistful of star turn guest vocal appearances from the UK’s biggest rap star Big Narstie and grime legend Footsie! AND! A very special guest appearance from cover star and BRAND NEW HUMAN Hercules Jan Narkiewicz!

ATD29 was written and recorded a few weeks back in the space of 29 hours after I packed off my girl and our brand new baby boy to auntie Nonny’s and had a slab of hash delivered by Royal Mail. PRAISE BE UNTO THE POSTMEN.

Click here to download the MP3 bundle and FLAC, and order the CD and luxury ART PRINT!

We’re having a special live DONCAST on Youtube tonight at 8pm UK time, so come on down and celebrate with us! It’s a good day! The pedo whisperer has been forced out of popedom, as predicted by my new single, One More Pope To Go! Joy to the future!

Anyway! I hope you enjoy this fine release! Hold tight for the first video from the project in a few hours. And let me know what other beats you’d like to hear me on in the future!

PAX!

Intergalactic planetary high five to Timothy O’Briant for sending this amazing artwork in, along with this note:

Hey, first met you at Morrison con this past year and since then I’ve really enjoyed listening to your music.  At the con you where wearing a tie dyed unicorn t-shirt so I thought it would be awesome to draw a unicorn wearing an Akira the Don shirt.  Hope you like it.  Later

I DO LIKE IT DUDE IF IT WAS MADE OF OIL I WOULD PUT IT IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. I mean, fuck, that unicorn is wearing a flipping Life Equation shirt. Amazing.

Check out more FANARTS over here and send me your artworks by the magic og EMAIL and it will be added to the WALL OF FAME.

Meanwhile I just went to see Warren Ellis do some talking at Foyles courtesy of Simon Spurrier (who writes this ace thing) and hooked up with LE MUIR and professional comics legend talk curator (and occasional Daily Mail scribe) Sam Leith and former Vertigo bod Tim Pilcher AND IT WAS VERY FUN. Charlotte was saying I don’t go out enough so I did, just like that. BOOM! I HAVE THE POWER TO GO OUT! WANNA GO OUT? HOLLA AT ME! I AM A PARTY PERSON! OH YEAH!

I missed a lot of Dr Ellis’ talk cos i found out about it in a very last minute fashion, but I did catch him musing on how he only really sees the mistakes in his old stuff and can often not bear to read stuff he did as recently as yesterday for that reason, which is pretty much how I tend to feel about my own shit, so that was encouraging.

Incidentally I forgot to ask Warren Ellis how the fuck he maintains such a high level of grade A digital output whilst still writing comics and books and movies and shit, but I forgot, so I guess I’ll have to KEEP ON TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT FOR MYSELF.

Ale Jaca Est.

Oh yeah, my olympic construction site neck injury came back, heres my PAIN FACE:
