Backwoodz Studioz is excited to announce the release of Henry Canyons debut; One Thousand Plateaus. Over the course of five tracks, the Brooklyn-bred, LA based MC lays out his unique artistic vision. Effortlessly melodic flows and witty wordplay find purchase over a lush soundscape provided by BoomBaptist, Willie Green and Essex Dogs; Canyons work here is at once stylish and cerebral. Describing his thought process on the EP, Henry Canyons said "One Thousand Plateaus is not a narrative or anecdotal piece. Yes, there are stories inside the songs, but overall it acts as a display of a current state of affairs, at least how I see them. Inspired by Deleuze and Guattari's book of sociological theory under the same title, the EP is my interpretation of their writings on social structure; particularly that of the rhizome. Difficult to pinpoint and directly define, the rhizome is a free flowing network of beings and systems that move fluidly through time and space completely free of hierarchy. Everything is an expression of multiplicity, the constant flow of desire, momentum, ebb and flow. Because of the perpetual motion and lack of hierarchical structure, there is no order or formula to how one must exist or consume."

Mix and Mastered by Willie Green for Paul Womack Media (BMI)
First and foremost, I'd like to thank billy woods and Phantom Power of Backwoodz Studioz for their support and assistance in making this project an official part of their label's catalogue. And woods, man, it's been a longtime goal for me to have you grace a track with me; emphatic dope! To record man Willie Green for his acute ear during the mixing and mastering process, and his continued belief in what I'm doing. My surrogate brother Bones, my day to day consigliere in everything that is everything. I love you brother. To my family, I thrive off your belief and support, and love you tremendously. To the other contributors to the project: Willie Green, BoomBaptist, Essex Dogs and Dave (Barman Supreme) Vaughn, all your efforts make this dope. Dave Def, your art pops my man! And finally, to all my fans and people who inspire me: THANK YOU!!! I hope y'all enjoy this and get ready for Canyonland coming later this year, it's a doozy. Peace and Love.
