66notes drops mad knowledge with lyrical finesse on a classic lofi, Beastcoast, cello & strings driven, boombap beat by BenOaks -(sounds like DJ Premier of Gang Starr + RZA of the Wu-tang Clan)
Here is a lyric video mixed with 1960’s civil rights marches with MLK @ Selma & DC along with recent #BlackLivesMatter footage.
66notes expresses a timely empowering message with his new single “Black Power”. He shares his experience with racism & modern day civil rights.
“Let’s get high, and never come down” words sung so emotionally by multi-talented artist 66notes. At the end of this song 66notes asks, “You ever want to fly away? Far far away, and escape this reality?” The reality that he speaks of is the constant turmoil pertaining to racism/discrimination/prejudice that has continuously destroyed not only this nation, but the whole world. It is because of this reason, he along with so many others like him would like to get higher than the clouds, and never come down. 66notes is a humanitarian and advocate for social equality, ‘Never Come Down’ is one of many of 66notes’ songs that points out the negative attributes associated with the various forms of hate in our world. He hopes by producing more and more songs with these types of messages, that it will spark much needed awareness to deal with these growing issues.
I’m excited to share two new acoustic based triphop tracks from The Numinous – a triphop / electrosoul / grime / urban electronica / alternative hiphop / PBR&B music project (and production team) from artist/songwriter/rapper/singer/producer 66notes & I. This project also features midwest songbird Devy Dev Dev & rapper/producer Daytym fka LDK fka Lawrence Day-Knightly.
The soundscape returns to an atmospheric, drone acoustic guitar & piano based instrumental. Unlike the powerful, epic heavy synth based grime (trap + grime + crunk + EDM + electronica + detroit techno) sounding work of the past year from 66notes and I’s ALLiWANT sessions and similar bass heavy work from my upcoming BASSisOurWeapon solo LP.
And there is also an actual b-side with similar sounding synths from the ‘Chapter Zero’ (song) instrumental sessions with V1TAL & V!CE called ‘Beyond the Frame’ which was previously unreleased.
We’ve got some more news from The Numinous–
- 66notes just released his latest solo album Fade to Grey. Available on all major retailers like Amazon at the end of the month. Pre-order now!
