Sound the gong for Rise & Grind [Maxi-Single], the first release from Los Angeles based multi-faceted imprint, Cymbolic Brand! Los Angeles,CA producer Olde Soul musically captures life as we thrive, with up to the minute narration by Pomona,CA emcee Blak King.
On Rise & Grind (New Day), the melodies trod the line between order and blissful chaos, while layered over a methodically mad display of drum programming. Vocals possess agility and flow pleasing to the ear, with lyrics that tell the story of a grown man with responsibilities.
Rise & Grind (Nite Cap Remix) however, is more tight lipped on storylines so as to keep the streets in the streets. A dark groove of a bassline under soothing keys ride over a slight variation of the same drum programming. Friendly reminders about the NiteTime grind are sprinkled on the track, in case one forgets.
The message of the Rise & Grind maxi single is simple - "Homie, get your Grind on!"
Rise & Grind (New Day) is the 1st single from Olde Soul's forthcoming album, Connect And Collect.
