In the summer of 1998 the Sound Providers settled in for recording sessions in a small San Diego apartment. Those hot summer days would produce the first Quarternote Records release, "Dope Transmission." Weeks later, the Sound Providers signed a production and distribution agreement with ABB Records and began working on several singles and finally, their long awaited debut album, An Evening with the Sound Providers. The album channels the feel of those good old jazz records that were recorded live at a small smokey club. With guest appearances by Little Brother, Maspyke, THe Procussions, and many more, this album is a must have for any hip-hop fan!
