Biography

There are two artists called The Tones:
1. A hip-hop duo,
2. A mod-revival band from Surrey.

1. The Tones are progressive masters in the creation of soulful, honest hip hop in its most appealing form. Being compared to the likes of Blackstar, Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village, De La Soul, Little Brother and even Mobb Deep, many might wonder how such a sound can be derived from the California Bay Area.

This versatile duo consists of rapper-producer, Retro, and rapper-singer, Suhn. Since the group first formed in 2001, The Tones have toured with the likes of Common, Slum Village, Little Brother, Roots’ drummer QuestLove, and Dr. Cornell West to name a few. Within the same period of time, Suhn and Retro have developed great musical chemistry along with friendship. Together, they have grown from amateurs to professionals, from brothers to fathers, and, from dreamers to conquerors. Still they never stop dreaming. The Tones have ambitions and aspirations to create multi-platinum selling albums and, eventually, become CEOs of their own respective companies.
‘Dreamtalk’ is an album about pursuing dreams and living through the struggles and pleasures encountered on the way. It also gives motivation to others in pursuit of their dreams. Mixing together a collection of laid back soul grooves and hard, vintage beats along with potent rhyme content, The Tones are sure to deliver a classic album… hence the okayplayer.com album review.
