Always looking to create unique experiences for his fans, RZA partnered with Boombotix to come up with a novel way to release Wu-Tang Clan's 20th anniversary album, "A Better Tomorrow."
Forgoing the traditional model of music distribution, we decided to embed several songs from the album directly into a Boombot REX and release the unit before the general album release date. Additionally the song "We Will Fight" will only be available through this Version 2 Boombot REX.
Only 1,000 units have been made for this round and will be available for sale on Zumiez and at local bike shops.
The Boombot REX is still a functional Bluetooth speaker and can play music of your choosing.
"There's something transcendent about being able to physically hold music," says RZA. "Back in the day, holding a vinyl helped you appreciate just how much time and sweat goes into creating a single track, let alone an entire album. Over the last decade, we've lost that sensation. With this project, we hope to strengthen the bond between fan and artist. Boombotix puts the music back in your hands so you can stay connected to your favorite artists wherever you go."
The Boombot REX is an ultraportable speaker capable of delivering incredible power for its size. The Boombot REX connects to iPods, smartphones, tablets, and laptops using wireless Bluetooth technology. Stream music, change tracks, and answer, end, or deny phone calls on the fly. The Boombot REX is built to withstand the demands of an active lifestyle so you can bring music to where you enjoy it most.
The dual drivers project full dynamic range sound forward while driving air flow to the BASS WOOFER. The BASS WOOFER punches air through the holes at the rear of the Boombot REX with an emphasis on low frequency.
