Coalmine Records announces the Beats, Mines and Life: An Instrumental Journey project which features 14 tracks of instrumentals. First up, Max I Million’s instrumental to the remix of CL Smooth and Skyzoo’s “Perfect Timing.”
Torii Wolf and DJ Premier’s collaborative album Flow Riiot is drawing near and the duo are joined by Macklemore for the single “Free.”
The song tackles the battle we face every day to be our authentic selves and a reminder that our freedom comes from within and how we hold the key to how “Free” we really are.
“‘Free’ is a special tune. It’s very relatable,” Wold told Complex about the King of Chill produced song. “True freedom comes from within; it’s the battle we face each day with our own identity. Having the confidence to be comfortable in our skin and with who we are; and being our true authentic selves. I find the content of someone else’s mind most attractive.
“Feeling free in my gender fluidity and the way I connect with other humans is vital to my being. To feel safe in outwardly expressing what it is that ignites a spark in me can be very challenging in the society we live in. However, it’s only harder when I try and resist it. It feels very important for me to lead by example in sharing with others how we are in control of our own destiny. To be in touch with ourselves in knowing what we want, who we are and what feels good is such a gift. It radiates and it is very liberating. Allowing your spirit to shine can be contagious and that freedom from within is the light that we all need.”
