22a boss Tenderlonious has announced new album 'Hard Rain'.
Said to be inspired by J Dilla, Blaze, Larry Heard and Carl Craig, Tenderlonious' new solo album is full of "highly-dope house and beat music which oozes futuristic funk".
'Hard Rain', out via 22a on June 14, follows the recently released 'Irongate' album from his jazz band Ruby Rushton.
