On January 23, 2007, Detroit producer and Ghettotech popularizer David “Disco D” Shayman took his own life at the age of 26. On The Loudest Silence, the final leak off his latest full-length, NYC rhymesayer Donny Goines pays tribute to his fallen friend, flowing over Disco D and co-producer Maki‘s own soulful boardwork. Tess, Aja Monet and Canei Finch guest, contributing hook/backing vocals throughout the cut as well as a spoken-word interlude. If you’re feeling this heartfelt jam, plenty more quality tunes await on Goines’ Success Served Cold LP, available online as of November 11.
