Pell – Floating While Dreaming [Album Stream]

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by | No Comments | Category: Music, Rap


The New Orleans, 7th Ward MC, Pell, releases his new project, Floating While Dreaming, and I must say, it’s the truth. From the cover art to the quality of the music. I appreciate Pell because he has a story to tell and tells it clearly and honestly. He talks about what he’s been through, what he’s going through, and what he’s doing to make his life better through all of the tragedy. One thing I always like about Southern MC’s is when they sing or add a few melodies to some records even when they’re not the best of vocalists. They don’t sound bad, but it just shows the soul that we possess down here that can’t be duplicated elsewhere. The production on the project is clean and simple and allows Pell to really showcase his lyrics and emotions through his voice. I can see myself playing this for a while. He’ll be selling the project on iTunes for a special $2.99 as well, starting on May 27th. Salute to Chris and DJ Wally Sparks.

HeartspaceVol1

 
Following the momentum of his driving dancefloor record with AC Slater, “On The Run“ released under Skrillex new label, The Nest, Baltimore-born, Atlanta-based vocalist/lyricist/producer Micah Freeman presents Heartspace Vol 1This is the first of a series of 3, 3-song EP’s which will be released May, June & July. A release party at the W Hotel in Downtown Atlanta on Saturday May 17th was thrown in celebration of the kickoff of the Heartspace trilogy, where listeners vibed out to a suit & tie clad performance of the new records. Conceptually, these EP’s are a continuation of the Time Traveler’s story from his last release, The Timepiece. Now, he travels inward, and keeps it funky while doing so.

All three EP’s are self-produced, arranged, and written. and hold a heavy influence from the funk and soul of the Late 70′s – Early 80′s, and are delivered with the sensibilities of contemporary hip-hop and electronic music. The title, artwork and subject matter of the songs glow with deeper meaning; esoteric references to the literary works and spiritual teachings of Drunvalo MelchizedekEckhart Tolle and Baba Ram Dass of love, inner peace, and ascension. Each EP highlights a different phase of the Time Traveler’s journey, each one venturing further inward, through personal dysfunction, through his own ego, and through life challenges, seeking to transcend it all and find our innermost essence in the heart.
