The series initially came about as an outlet for him to explore his creativity as a producer. \u201cI wanted people to see my different sounds and styles\u201d says Ayatollah. While some of Tollah\u2019s previous instrumental efforts focused on the exploration of sound, Avant Garde was crafted with that Rawkus-era in mind. \u201cI really got to open up and truly get raw on the drum machine.\u201d he explains. \u201cI do not set out to adapt the music I make to new trends. I would rather the music I create become or set new trends on its own terms, naturally.\u201d\r\n\r\nAvant Garde will be available on iTunes and other fine music retailers worldwide on March 5th.\r\n\r\nTo hold you over until the lead single drops in early February, we\u2019ve included Me, Myself & Akai, a 40+ minute continuous mix of Ayatollah\u2019s biggest hits, B-sides and rarities by DJ K.O.\r\n\r\nDOWNLOAD: Ayatollah - Me, Myself & Akai\r\n\r\nNew Ayatollah LP, Avant Garde, coming March 2013 on Elementality Productions\r\n\r\nTRACKLIST:\r\n\r\n01 Talib Kweli - The Proud\r\n02 Sean Price - Spliff-n-Wessun (feat.
