“ A lot of things in my life were broken. My group broke up, my long term relationship broke up, the music industry and economy seemed to be broken. So it was time for me to take a break, and that’s where the title of the record stems from. It’s not so much I’m broken. I’m moving towards the sunlight these days. It’s more like a tale of perseverance and forging ahead through difficult times. ”
Broken Sunlight Features guests that including Bumpy Knuckles, Large Professor, J-Live, Aloe Blacc, Charles Bradley, Quantic, A-Skillz among others. It showcases Uncle Nu’s passions for many types of music including Hip-Hop, Funk and Cumbia. This is an artist who is an expert at his craft, dedicated to preserving good music throughout the globe while spreading love through music. It’s only fitting that along with the vinyl release of his latest effort he goes above and beyond to bring the listener and fan something special. Props to Uncle Nu and Hot Plate Records for this!
