ROLI launches Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues by Mathematics

You can now remix three of the album’s biggest hits.

Wu-Tang’s Mathematics has collaborated with music tech company ROLI to produce a new Studiopack for the firm’s NOISE app and BLOCKS hardware.

It’s from the brand-new album Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. You can now take the sounds from three tracks off the brand new Wu-Tang album ‘The Saga Continues’ and make them your own.

Featuring instrumental and vocal clips, the Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues Studiopack lets you put your own spin on the singles “People Say,” “My Only One,” and “Lesson Learn’d”.

“Make your own beat or remix mine,” said Mathematics, the Wu-Tang-affiliated producer who created The Saga Continues..

The album is the next chapter in the story of one of the world’s most influential groups. Hip hop changed forever after the Wu-Tang Clan exploded on the scene with their 1993 debut Enter the Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers). The album was a colossus, featuring the irresistible beats of producer RZA and the voices of a group of young rappers who would go on to become household names.

“Over the past 20 years the Wu-Tang collective has absorbed new talent and broken new ground — while holding true to the distinctive Wu-Tang sound,” said ROLI.

“With its modern twists on classic Wu-Tang beats, The Saga Continues shows the constant evolution of the group. The smooth R&B chorus in “My Only One” is just one example. Mathematics combines an old-school hip hop crunch with some brand new sonic flavours — all of which are now at your fingertips in the new Studiopack.”

As a friend of founding member GZA, Mathematics was there from the beginning. He even designed Wu-Tang’s iconic W symbol for their first album cover. While he has produced tracks for the collective before, this is the first time he has made an entire Wu-Tang album by himself.

The Saga Continues originated from a “friendly sparring” session with RZA, where both producers shared their creations. After hearing Mathematics’ beats, RZA knew immediately that they were perfect for Wu-Tang.
“The sonics, the vibrations and the energy of Wu-Tang was trapped inside Mathematics” says RZA. “He wanted to get it out.

Mathematics is conscious of the responsibility of taking the Wu-Tang legacy forward. “Each sound has to complement the other,” he said. “Each frequency has to be on point. I might spend hours just trying to find the right snare.”

Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues is the second collection of sounds from a member of the Wu-Tang Clan available in NOISE. Spoonful Of Grit by RZA features crackling pianos, dark basslines and kung-fu effects all inspired by the legendary soundscapes RZA created on albums such as Enter the Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers) and Liquid Swords.

Both Studiopacks are available now.
