VIDEO: ASTU - Reckless (Produced by Tofu Jack, Daoud )

In times like these Art/Artists are paramount in sustaining a healthy piece of mind and also the recovery process from the current trauma we're all facing. Soon after the quarentine was put in place I reached out to Astu to let her know her music would be a major part of my personal mindfulness during the #StayAtHome ordinance. "Reckless" is Astu's latest offering showing the contrast of happier times with her crew to footage featuring some of 2020's worst natural disasters to date. Art imitates life and "Reckless" should be a reminder to all of us that physical connection is what makes us human and one day we'll return to some form of normalcy. Follow Astu and her label Boyish Records for more of their upcoming releases. Check here to stream "Reckless" as well as Astu's album "Patterns".

VIDEO: Evidence - Unlearning

New visuals from 1/3 Dilated Peoples Evidence, aka Mr.Slow Flow, The Weatherman. "Unlearning" Produced By Graymatter/ mixed by frequent collaborator Eddie Sancho (Gangstarr, Jay-Z, Blackmoon), gives the viewer a peak into Ev's personal surroundings and his recording process. "Unlearning" is his first solo release since his critically acclaimed 2018 album, Weather Or Not. Watching Evidence grow since Dilated's early breakout single "Work the Angles" has been a inspiration and a lesson in artist evolution. One of illest to control the Microphone & production, Evidence seems to get more comfortable in his skin with each new offering. There's no sign of "Unlearning" being part of a more grand scheme i.e. album, so vibe to this until further notice, CA all Day.
