New releases from Toronto & California hit the podcast stream this week. Highly anticipated fourth studio album Ventura from Anderson .Paak is the headliner. With features including Andre 3000, the late & great Nate Dogg, Brandy, & more. Production from The Alchemist, Dem Jointz, & of course Paak himself. Ventura is a sure vibe to celebrate the newly coming Summer season.
First up, we have the four track EP from Toronto Canada artists Always Never. The duo has an elaborate and dark tone to their music, yet fades in and out of major key elements. Patrick and Dean started Always Never in 2016. With major success of the video ‘Wylin’ racking up over 2 million views on Youtube, the two are working hard crafting their sound. The four track EP is a promising taste of what is to come. An appetizer, if you will. With major directors like KID.Studio & Christo Anesti involved, the best is surely still to come. Overall, Always Never makes great music that reflects the emotions of listeners. Allowing the audience to draw direct parallels with the music.
Also on the podcast is the full re-release album from XO artists 88Glam. Derek Wise & 88 Camino form the super duo that embrace the XOTWOD lifestyle of drugs & house party shit. Fun music is what 88 GLAM 2.5 will set your night up for. Remixes of a few popular joints from the original album 88 GLAM 2. The two are set to head off to a 18 date tour titled The Twin Turbo Tour starting on Coachella in Indio California. Features on 88 Glam 2.5 include NAV & Gunna.
