The Violence Of Zen

D-Tension

The Violence Of Zen is the new album from veteran underground MC/Producer D-Tension. A 20 year veteran in the hip-hop game, D-Tension has released albums and produced tracks for a who’s who of artists including Slug of Atmosphere, Akrobatik, Mr. Lif and Diamond D. His music has been featured on TV, advertisements and film. Best known for his producer series Contacts & Contracts, D’s latest solo album showcases both his production and his trademark witty and often humorous lyrics. The Violence Of Zen features collaborations with Diamond D & A.G. of Diggin In the Crates fame, Pace Won, M-Dot and Tash of The Alkoholiks.

The first single from The Violence Of Zen, Godly, received worldwide radio play and was featured on Ambrosia For Heads who said “Diamond kicks off the song with one of his best verses in years. …D flexes perfect in-the-pocket timing, strong confidence, and a great tie-in to the song’s theme and title. This is ill.”

The Violence Of Zen is dedicated to the memory of Commonwealth Records CEO DruGarrity, one of D-Tension’s most ardent supporters. Dru passed away unexpectedly and leaves behind a wife and two young daughters who have only recently relocated to the United States. Proceeds from the sales of The Violence Of Zen will be donated to the widow and children of DruGarrity.
