Toné! member who racked up five Grammy nominations for his neo-soul album, Instant Vintage—stopped by Future Disc (Hollywood) to master his album, All Hits at the House of Blues, and new solo albums for Joi and Truth Hurts, all for his label Pookie Records. Kris Solem, who also mastered Instant Vintage, engineered the projects.
