US/ASIA 7" VINYL ORDERS:
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY/APPLE MUSIC/TIDAL:
Has it really been 5 years since the last instalment?! Since Vol.2 dropped i've gone through a few changes: from having 2 kids, to moving home and changing careers..not to mention running the Expansions Collective label. But I always manage to return to the source eventually.
Life Sketches has always been about collaboration. The record is as much about the people who contributed to it as it is about me. From Buscrates and Octavio Santos, to Grap Luva and Von Pea, the artists on this record are people I both admire and respect. This record wouldn't be possible without them.
Share it with a friend if you can. And thank you.
