Album Notes
October 2008 – November 2009
Back then, we were 5 young and driven guys, just looking to make good music. 5 regular guys with extraordinary talent. Some of us had moderate success on the underground, independently selling thousands of albums and performing in shows with established mainstream artists. However, we didn’t have access to a variety of resources, no access to state of the art studios or connections to mid or high-level record executives. But even without these perks, we were determined to make music, one way or another.

Rick Vernon (aka Charlie Vegas) took the initiative and built a computer from scratch, bought Pro Tools and loaded it on the computer, then built a makeshift booth out of plywood, metal hinges and soundproofing materials; Maurice Mckinney stacked some money and bought a Korg Triton,and provided it to the set-up. Tricky set up the equipment in our basement apartment and made it into a studio, naming it The Bakery.

This was a place where anybody could come and "cook up" music, allowing their creative processes to flow without having to worry about paying high hourly rates, and just focus on having fun and expressing themselves. None of us had real Pro Tools experience, so Tricky and I took time to learn how to use Pro Tools to record and mix at a basic level, and we recorded our own music – something like on-the-job training. We weren’t expert producers and engineers, but we had drive. We had determination. We had passion. We weren’t going to wait around for opportunities – we were going to try and take them.

The music we made in the Bakery was great, from a lyrical and creative standpoint. Anyone who recorded there grew as an artist, had a good time, and learned a lot about themselves in the process. We always had intentions of having the projects “professionally” mixed and mastered, and eventually released to the mass public. Unfortunately, it never happened. In early 2011, the hard drive in the studio PC crashed. Despite our best efforts and the intervention of computer specialists, the data and masters were deleted and lost. We did, however, have the rough pre-production drafts of many tracks that we had recorded. This musical offering contains that material.

The tracks contained in this project are raw and unpolished. There is no “studio magic” or expert tracking. What these tracks display are raw talent, great storytelling and fantastic lyrics. The hope is that you can hear the determination and passion in our voices on each track, the spirit of unrelenting drive on each recording, and the musical freedom and fun we experienced in recording this material. The Bakery will always be a part of us and is reflected in everything we do. We experienced emotional highs, heartbreaking lows, and everything in between in that small basement apartment studio in Capitol Heights, MD.

Hopefully, once you’ve reached the end of this project, it will be a part of you as well. So thank you for taking the time to listen to our journey, and be prepared for much more to come. Please enjoy “2008-2009: The Bakery Sessions.” Dark Squad for life!
