HOT NEW MUSIC

1997 DIANA - BROCKHAMPTON

Brock Hampton is a 13 man rap collective or “boy band” that shot into popularity after releasing their Saturation trilogy in 2017, three albums that showed off the group’s undeniable unique creativity and unmatched production. Each member of the band contribute something different and are often testing new ideas but land an instantaneously catchy hook in nearly every song.
 

On March 30th the group announced that they signed to the record label RCA(for an estimated 15 mil) and they are slated to release their album soon.
 

Currently, they have 3 singles released and their most recent "1997 DIANA" might be the most vibrant and danceable out of all three. The track kicks off with a countdown and then straight into Kevin Abstract's chipmunked chorus. After that, we get a zany Matt Champion's verse then later followed but by one of Dom McLennon more silly and memorable lines "cu-cucumber lemonade, I need something fresh today.
 

Barber make the texture fade, actin' out like it's charades". Dom's flow especially adds to the quirky vibe of the song.
 

The production is handled by Kevin Doan, it’s upbeat and filled with subtle but necessary horn samples, crowd cheers, and hand claps.
 

Unfortunately, the track comes in at a short 2 minutes and 15 seconds. I feel like it definitely could've been fleshed out a bit more but I'm hoping it sounds more complete in the context of the album. Overall, I like what I’m hearing and excited for what they do next.

The Manual of Psychedelic Support
By The Zendo Project
 

 
Taking psychedelics can be one of the most incredible and mind opening experiences that you ever have. It can open your mind up to love, healing, and what you are truly capable of as an individual. This is an intense experience that needs supervision at times.  

Difficult psychedelic experiences, often referred to as “bad trips,” can happen quite frequently when factors outside of the participants control are introduced. Many people find themselves unprepared for the full spectrum of experiences that can arise from psychedelic use.

The Zendo Project is a psychedelic harm reduction service that provides peer support services in a comfortable setting for individuals experiencing challenging psychedelic experiences at international festivals and events.

I've decided to support the Zendo Project and they gifted me their 'Manual of Psychedelic Support' in return. They are sponsored by MAPS, which is a really cool organization that I'll eventually talk about as well down the road. 
 

My wife showed me this short video explaining how much teamwork is needed to win a bike race. If you have 3 minutes you should definitely watch this! 

“Life is very short and anxious for those who forget the past, neglect the present, and fear the future.”
