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.

KK Produxions Presents “EPITOME MUSIC” Peep the Visual for “BE ME” featuring Creole

Published

on

By

 

Depending on what era of Detroit Hip Hop you follow, you may know him as “Killa Kaun” or maybe just “Kaun” hence the KK PRODUXIONS. But today in 2021 we know him as KILLZ. Legendary Freestyler, Battle Rapper (before battles were pre-written) Promoter, Photographer recently added music producer to the list and one hell of a writer.

Killz music has always come from the streets, the hood to be exact. But not the simple grammar that you mostly find in street music today. Now we dont say this to paint the picture that he is Hippidy Hoppidy lyrical miracle that can fly over the common listeners head… No he just has a way with words that every great writer displays.

Killz has always been a giver, a man that enjoys giving opportunities. For the only purpose of wanting to see those around him shine too. There is no question that Killz can carry a entire project solo but this time around he decided to share the spotlight and big up the next artist to carry the KK Produxions flag.

We are not sure that any songs captures the REAL KILLZ on this compilation as “BE ME” does featuring Creole. The visual from “BE ME” takes us on a historical journey via the life of KILLZ. A flash back on his life now as he delivers the verse in the desert sun.

American Gangsta feat Killz, Creole, and Black Laz, is the perfect song for a movie soundtrack. The struggle for the black man trying to come up is real, either you ride all day for yours or fall off to the wasteside.

“Some of yall just gotta look in the mirror to see a fake nigga” Killz first words on the song “FAKE LOVE” says it all. Now a days it seems as if everyone is fake, has a hidden agenda or just secretly out to destroy you. We cant get ahead with those type in your circle. you may find yourself all alone at times. But these moments only make a real one stronger.

The youngest on the squad Syncere features on the track “City Bars”, while Creole Baby brings some RnB flavor on the song “Just a Minute” and it wouldnt be a Killz produced project without a little shake sumn music like you’ll find on “Twerk It Out”. Killz is a emcees emcee so one of the tracks that will resonate with any artist that lived thru the struggle is “Breathing Treatment” feat King Crooked and Black Laz.

We strongly recommend giving Epitome Music a listen
