Bryan “Braille” Winchester has been in the hip hop game for a long time now and he is now taking yet another step in hip hop. “Talking Textures” is the name of his new label. His previous label “Hip Hop Is Music” where albums ‘Extra Credit’ by Theory Hazit, ‘Spring of the Songbird’ by Sivion of DeepSpace5 and more were released, is being shut down in place of Talking Textures. Braille released an update earlier this month about the label, saying that it contains two principles: “letting the music speak for itself” and “letting God speak for himself”.

Braille went on to talk about some of the releases that will be come out under the new label. The first being Othello and DJ Vajra with the album ‘Required Taste’ which is slated to release in June, and is meant to have that summer feel to it. The surprise to the update is where Braille tells the viewer that Sharlok (Sareem) Poems of L.A Symphony and DJ Dust of DeepSpace5 are finally releasing their record ‘Dirty Words’ on the new label. This was big news solely because the two released songs about 2 years ago and an album was always rumored to come out, however the group was just having trouble finding a label.

This year is going to be a year to pay attention to Talking Textures. Go pick up your copy (on 4/27/10) of Braille’s ‘Weapon Aid,’ the first album to be released on the label (in conjunction with Syntax Records) and stay tuned to Rapzilla for more news on Talking Textures.
