Altered Natives to Release 'Tenement Yard Vol. 3'
- Words: Patric Fallon
Prolific house music firebrand Altered Natives will bring his Tenement Yard series (the second installment of which was one of our top 10 favorite releases from 2011) to a close next month when he releases its third and final volume. The 16-track offering was announced today along with a so-called "suicide note" written by DJ/producer Danny Native, which opens saying, "Well, we're back here again, and yeah, I'm saying it's my best work ever rah rah rah, again. I dunno. To be honest, I feel like I'm writing a suicide note, because it pains me to say this, but this is the last in the Tenement Yard story. [I'm] ending this in a trilogy finale, and on my part, the final rent collection in the sky. Goodbye, cruel world… I'm not moving away, just ending it on a high, or as high as I can get." You can read more of the UK artist's letter over on FACT, and check out Tenement Yard Vol. 3's artwork and tracklist before it drops as a digital download via Eye4Eye on October 3, below.
