After seven, bi-weekly, mixtape releases, critically acclaimed debuting Interscope Records recording artist Charles Hamilton proudly brings his innovative cyber tour, “The Hamiltonization Process” to a close.
On Tuesday, December 9th, Charles Hamilton will release what he calls, “the everyday diary during the darkest period of my life,” Pink Lavalamp which is the final installment to “The Hamiltonization Process.”
The 15-track album was recorded between 2006 and 2007, before his recording deal with Interscope. Ironically a year to two later, Pink Lavalamp is the genesis to where Charles Hamilton is musically today. The album was completely recorded and mixed at the Frederick Douglass Academy and is the original raw recording. According to Charles, every story in every song on Pink Lavalamp relates back to Charles’ life or something he’s seen in life.
To commemorate the end of “The Hamiltonization Process,” Charles Hamilton will celebrate the release of the album, Pink Lavalamp in NYC on Monday, December 8th at the Red Bull Space at 8:30 pm EST. The celebration will serve as a meet and greet for press, DJs and tastemakers alike. The celebration will also include an exclusive Pink Lavalamp play back session.
