Press Release :
The theme that is forever at the forefront of my mind when I create music. We can easily identify music that has that indescribable timeless vibe, music that regardless of the time period in which it was created sounds refreshing and relevant when played.

1) When the Night Stood Still
A warm summer night can evoke a variety of conflicting yet unifying emotions, my love for the starry sky above inspired this piece which takes you on a relaxing journey through the night as it stands still.

2) Something Forever
This piece is based around an entrancing chord progression that could go on and on, hence the title.

3) Living for the Rush
We all have our own ways of escaping and feeling a rush, what ever ones rush is this, piece represents the sound track to the feeling of being in that moment.

4) The Things I Do (For Her)
When you're passionate about someone or in this case something, that love may drive you to do things you would never imagine.

5) Down
A cool groove to make your body rock and forget about the stress of the work week.

6) B-Boy Beef V2
Version 2 to the original version found on critically acclaimed Soul Movement vol.1.

7) Illusions
What your heart feels could often conflict with what your mind feels.

8) This Beautiful Feeling
This song featuring Ebrahim is a reminder for us all to never take "Time" for granted. We can find joy in even bad moments.

9) The Cure
We've all had that one person in our life who like a prescribed drug made everything better in our life. But like any drug, you can get addicted to what makes you feel good.

10) D.A.N.C.E.
Timeless vibes, memories in the making in the company of great friends or the soul synchronization of a stranger, the positive energy exchanged between people when celebrating life, is at the root of what inspired this song.

11) War Within
Collaboration with Swedish soul artist Magnus Tingsek & Canadian artist Ebrahim. War Within was written and recorded while the two were in Toronto for Slakah the Beatchild's Vibe Love Smile Tour. This song relates to the inner wars one goes through when battling addiction.
