Krum drops a surprise single/video for “Swang” over hypnotic Theory Hazit beat.
“Sorry it’s been so long since you’ve heard from me. I’ve been working hard on a few projects but I wanted to make sure I stay in your ear in the meantime. SWANG is a loosie produced by Theory Hazit. We both agreed that this vibe had to be out there at this exact moment for the world to hear,” shared Krum.
“The Hold” is the lead single from Armond WakeUp’s 40 Days EP, available now via Illect Recordings.
The track features production by Wes Pendleton and the visual was directed by Armond himself.
Armond shares, “The Hold is a special record to me because it captures a question that God consistently asks me…”what are you holding onto?” It could be a mindset, a person, a fear, anything. And we build these walls with ways that we think and cement them with how we feel. We think those things keep hurt and pain out, and they do. But they also keep any sort of healing and restoration from getting in.”
“This is the first time I’ve directed and edited a music video, so this was new. Often when I create, I see what I wanna hear, so bringing this to life was an amazing experience. Shoutout every photographer, videographer, and director because they have an eye from God. It’s incredible.”
The 40 Days EP cements why Armond WakeUp is one of our favorite artists.
We’re excited to premiere “The Kids That Can” music video from hip-hop duo TheKnuBlack.
The group shared with us what inspired them to create the track:
The song was inspired by a feeling of being boxed in from the conversations concerning music and art. At the time we wrote it, many artists were wrestling with their identity concerning what genre or sub-genre they will be a part of. From our observations, oftentimes choosing one takes the form of rejecting another. We decided to side-step that conversation by saying we can do what we want. We can “fly with the eagles and still dance with the penguins” in the words of Knu or “we are Tritan, Neptune AND Poseidon, all in one” in the words of Sade. At the end of the day our gifts are God-given so all our choices should be God-honoring. But the funny thing is that exactly at the point that we desire to honor God is the same point that the possibilities become limitless and we find ourselves saying “we are the kids that can” do all things.
