Starting the week off with some goodness from soul stirrer Johnny Burgos out of Brooklyn. With some help from Leo Coltrane and produced by DJ Skizz, he comes correct with a new single “The Grey”. Burgos has always kept a steady pace with influences that range from D’Angelo to Outkqst to MJ and more, releasing dope tracks from start to finish. This new release (and accompanying video) is a great example of the man’s talent.
I was halfway done with this record when the pandemic hit. It forced me to reconnect to a more purposeful and creative existence, accepting life’s discomfort and ambiguity as simply part of the process. I reframed a ‘grey area,’ and it was incredibly inspiring. I took it day by day, showed up purposefully, passionately, persistently into the grey, and I discovered a newfound freedom to create beyond the inner-critic.Johnny Burgos
Produced by DJ Skizz (MOP, Freeway, Sean P, and more) this track sees Skizz in the captain’s chair as he lays it down for Burgos and Coltrane, a trio that is unstoppable at this time and place. An R & B and hip hop journey that you all need to go on! We’re excited to bring this one to you today and are looking forward to more heat from this dream team in the future. This one is available right now on Soulspazm Records.
