Soular Fiction: Dreams of Flying EP

I am pleased to share my EP “Soular Fiction: Dreams of Flying” with you all on Friday, Sep.
15. The music announces the maturation of my signature #SoularFiction sound. It is meant to convey a rich and wavy vibe that helps you digest the messages in each track.

The EP features the talents of several artists. They express the life experiences of young people of African descent in the U.S., France, and elsewhere. Together, We’ve created a project that will have you thinking as you nod your head. Listen through headphones, during your commute, and at small gatherings.

Thank you for your support. As of now, we commit to supporting New Florida Majority and the National Black United Front who are doing relief work in the state of Florida and the city of Houston. We are also open to any suggestions you may have.

Trans∆itions: A Summer-Fall Mixtape

This mix is about the tension and harmony between seasons, facets of the self, and the continuum of existence. The music featured here moves across a variety of (sub)genres and styles to highlight the melancholy, joy, love, rejection, and other emotions that compete for our total attention at any given moment. More importantly, these songs transport listeners across state-constructed borders and lifts them beyond the gravitational pull of planets. The tracks work together to obliterate time and space as we know it, thanks to the various vessels through which this audio communication was gifted to us.

Several inspirational people transitioned back to the spiritual essence during the long process of curating this mix. Some were personal friends and acquaintances. Others existed outside of my personal space. All taught me some important lessons about humanity and provided glimpses of how we can work together to heal it from its current ills. I dedicate this mix to them, as well as to my people who still travel with me in their earthly form. Some of you just arrived. Others have been here for a few years. I love and cherish you all.

Note: the overwhelming majority of these songs are available for download, so be sure to explore the links.
