I recently interviewed ENÍ about her first original single + visual for “Kiss’n in the Dark,” a warm spirited + melodic blend of soul and pop that reminds us why our generation still needs dance music.

New Visuals off of Mohdalsoul’s newest project, “Kinnected LP”, featuring cameos from Roberto Torres & Vibe Music Collective’s Billzegypt — and myself
Earlier this year, I shot my first music video with LA-native producer/DJ Mohdalsoul and Irvington emcee MoRuf, featuring camero appearances by singer-songwriter Billzegypt, all located in the South Ward of Newark, New Jersey.
On episode 4 of ON+OFF, I took a mini road trip with Iman Omari and Billlzegypt to capture Vibe Music Collective perform at Webster hall in NYC and Metro Gallery in Baltimore for back to back shows. It was very very #lit.

From my time at Pitchfork Music Festival this past weekend in Union Park in Chicago. Without these folk, this festival couldn’t have been possible. From mothers and young children hawking water to festival-goers from sun up to sun down, to local rappers hustling mixtapes and CD’s outside the gates of the park, to scalping tickets and flipping them for 300% their original worth, these portraits hold more significance than the context they were taken in. I dedicate this album for the real MVP’s of the weekend.
