Saint De’Angelus – ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL

Published

on

A return is among us in this four-song rebirth from the creative genius combined in Saint De’Angelus. Here crafted ever so eloquently and in a delightful manner are four cuts that deliver a quick punch, but ultimately a listen that has you diving inside again, to unravel its depth with more listening sessions. Executive production from JRGotTheHiTS and featuring TOUSSAINT A.V.E. shine, & each artist brings life to the backdrops created here & each song transposes another feeling tied together in the perfect little knot, yet each it’s own ever-important thread. Bryce Detroit, Nametag Alexander, Brent Blak Smith, and Boog Brown all provide fantastic performances that felt cohesive as a whole. ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL represents Saint De’Angelus & Toussaint A.V.E. own experiences. It’s an experience in itself worth exploring. Take the entire official press release provided from Saint De’Angelus below to learn more about the story behind ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL.

Official Press Release:

December 21, 2020Detroit, MI Saint De’Angelus has returned from self-imposed creative exile to debut ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL, the audio+digital experience executive produced by JRGotTheHiTS and featuring TOUSSAINT A.V.E  shalom@saintdeangelus.com  Saint De’Angelus., the super collective made up of indie creators Bryce Detroit, Nametag Alexander, Brent Blak Smith, and Boog Brown. ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL represents Saint De’Angelus & Toussaint A.V.E. experiences confronting personal ideas about Blackness, spirituality, and identity politics in a world where people are creating a future based on the things that predate convention. In that spirit, ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL is available on all streaming platforms, plus exclusively at saintdeangelus.com with 500 digital copies available for complimentary reservation while supplies last. The first single “OUTWRK EVRBDY” featuring Nametag Alexander is available at saintdeangelus.com with an accompanying lyric video to be released the week of the ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL release. ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL represents Saint De’Angelus first official work as a conceptual artist, creative director, and essayist since announcing his quiet departure from Humble Flei, the entertainment brand he built as an indie publicist since 2015. Inspired by COVID-19’s grip on modern life, Saint De’Angelus spent Spring through Summer 2020 homesteading, religious fasting, and reconnecting with his creative passions. The end result was Return to Flora, a two part photo-series documenting the celebration of his reincarnation, centered around his surprise marriage proposal to event curator Alexis Draper. Return to Flora was co-directed by fashion designer and photographer James Morris (Definitive Style Exclusive) and featured over 40+ friends and family members (with special contributions of customized PPE by Phil Simpson and Smile Brand). The community effort it took to pull the collaboration together, along with a special bath run by his fiance’ a few days later are the circumstances that inspired the content and collaboration style for ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL. What started as a playful moment between lovers on a weekday morning has grown into an interdisciplinary statement on the importance of community to our singular existence. Due to schedule and health restrictions, ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL was recorded August-September 2020 at remote locations with follow-up sessions performed at Grammy-nominated Studio 221B. Now, just under two weeks away from the official release, Saint De’Angelus had this to say: “Throughout the first part of the pandemic I had the opportunity to detach from all the social climbing that comes with being at a certain level in the music industry and reconnect with my values of independence, community, and spirituality. So many of the things we go through, we perceive ourselves as going through alone, but during this time of hyperawareness, we should be more intentional about the energy we contribute to the collective, as individuals. ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL is me providing a document on what has worked for me since my own spiritual awakening in 2017, but especially during 2020 and the global pandemic COVID-19. Mostly, what that has looked like for me is giving myself permission to be decadent, sensual, and deeply explorative of the things that bring me peace like astrology, moon ritual, and folk practices that have been passed down since slavery.” ALL BATHS ARE RITUAL is available for streaming on all platforms and can be downloaded for free when visiting saintdeangelus.com. Join us in activating BATHS with profiles, playlists, reviews, guest appearances, and special content partnerships.

ALBUM

“Axel Foley” New Album by Killz

Published

on

By

“You can hear my pain in the verse,  im versed in the game.” Lines from the first song “Get Up” off the recently released AXEL FOLEY from Killz. There could not have been a better way to set the tone for this album. Jay Z could not have laid a better verse from one of his many classic albums.

“Axel Foley” finds Killz in the mecca of the desert Las Vegas. If any city can understand the mob mentality it takes to make it past 20 and not be dead, in prison or homeless like Detroit its Sin City. Get up has a ocean freeway drive vibe musically, yet i can also place myself in a foreign with the top peeled back doing 90 on Mt Rose. Yea you might Kill yourself!

This isnt a full in depth review. But more so a must listen with tracks like “Just Speak in” “Rearview” “We in This” and “My Own” for the commercial ear. Songs that give it to you lyrically from “Open Mic” to “Real Ones” “Mobbin” and a classic feature from Dog Pounds finest Kurupt on “We On” treat yourself to the Axel Foley experience from Killz

The Flood vol.2 is the second installment to “The Flood” mixtape saga from Ypsilanti artist and underground heavyweight Sigidy. The offering serves as a definitive flag in the sand moment in the evolution of the self proclaimed “audio craftsman”, and truly reveals a more contagious, concise and polished style the Michigan legend has become known and acclaimed for. The tape features the usual cast and crew on production with B.e-Z exclusively doing every beat on the project, exposing a myriad of feelings and tones through highly unique instrumentals that take the listener on an audio adventure like no other.

Just got a email with the new Anthems & Icons from the 80 Empire. I thought to myself, ok i know the crew is from across the bridge over in Canada. Go ahead and follow the link and got beat over the Head with the opening record from KRS ONE “WE RUN SHIT” feat DJ Eclipse on the cuts! Ok im sold as i look at the credits and notice a couple Michigan Goats on the project Swifty Mcvay and Jon Connor. So im like bet lets run this project.

Then the second song comes on with a hypnotizing track and the voice of MC Eiht with some guest work from Kurupt and we are sold already. To find your favorite Detroit artist on the project make sure you tap in with the joint “BRAVO” feat DJ Spice and NEMS along with Swifty. Stand For Something feat Jon Connor needs to be the title track for a future oscar nominated film. This song is produced and written to inspire emotion and thought. Check out the entire project at a streaming service near you!
