Political Group Freenauts Drop Two New Songs

“Culture precedes politics. For more liberty from political systems, we first need to see more freedom in the arts.” —Alex Vidal

Freenauts—a political rap group—first bleeped on our radar last year when their searing anti-Clinton videos reached over a milli on the infamous WorldStar Hip Hop and Drudge Report. Their message resonates with what’s going on in today’s society at large and is direct, to say the least. Now, Freenauts founder Alex Vidal says they’re ready to spread more positive vibes.

Their latest new songs, Crazy Sexy Rebel—a bassy description of anti-establishment ride or dies they are looking for—and the light hearted Third Party Girl, definitely live up to the mandate of spreading positivity. “Shout out to all my third party girls, the true independents,” is a line from Third Party Girl that shows the use of politics and humour blended together seamlessly. The songs, as the group explains, are about celebrating women who’ve dedicated their talents to the message of free minds and free markets. A little less overtly “anti” as some of their past material, the tracks have some serious bounce and open the group up to new ears.

Power Of Positivity: Get To Know Rapper daFeaux

After performing at this years SunFest music festival here in West Palm Beach FL, and spending the last while working on rebranding his approach, artist m recently sat with AAHH to discuss his music, his inspirations, and what’s up next.

“My sound would best be described as a melodic guidebook,” he says, “a journey to achieve strength through vulnerability.” According to daFeaux the endgame of his creative process is to provoke listeners to genuinely open themselves up. “Not only to the music,” he says, “but to themselves, the vibrations of life, and to the inner voice that only speaks through feeling.”

“Watching my brother practice his set to open up for Lil Scrappy was the first time I knew I wanted to do music,” he notes. As he explains, his brother’s success in the industry is what ultimately inspired him to pick up the pen. “I wrote my first songs that same night and its been a snowball effect since then.”

The Panama-born artist is quick to point out Bone Thugs N Harmony as his biggest influence. “They came up at a time where they were able to be sponges for everything that was going on in music … they were really the best examples of taking sounds and making them your own that had a heavy influence on me.”

 
To date, he’s dropped five projects: three with a group called DAFEAUXNITO and the others were more recent releases titled  27 DAYS and demotape.

“I am currently working on my album OMNIPURPLE,” he reveals. “I decided that after everything that took place in one year it was only right I ended things on a high note. This album will serve as my first impression as both a re-branded artist and a blueprint to my creative process.

His goal in the industry is to continue paving the way for new artists to embrace the freedom of being more than one thing. “I purposely used the word ‘OMNI’ for my album, which is Latin for (of all things) to introduce my current state of mind as a being of all things.”

So what’s next?

“Owning my own label would be the next thing professionally,” he says defiantly. “I want to establish a strong foundation for my sound so it can be called home by myself and others just like me.”

Check The Bars: J. Asadi Spins His Struggle Into “Lazarus Experiment”

Sometimes you need to fall to get back up; for rapper J. Asadi, that fall meant serving seven years in the prison system — an experience that ultimately gave him a renewed outlook on life. This new outlook has shown him a new way to approach his dream. Currently majoring in Business Administration, and signed to his own Indie label Dark Mafia Entertainment, he’s recently released a dope new LP that walks listeners through his story while dropping psalms filled with unexpectedly powerful inspiration.

The vibrant eight-song project, titled Lazarus Experiment, is an eclectic mix of vibes — albeit with very cohesive soundscapes produced mainly by Steffon Petrovic. All the songs have a message. Nothing is out of place.

The intro “The Invitation” is, in essence, his story, detailing issues with baby mother, his time in the Marines, his time in the box, and above all this overwhelming sense of perseverance. The LP has this overarching theme of scaling adversity, with songs like “Never Fail” and “Undefeated” coming across as the type of records that help listeners through their darkest moments. It’s powerful stuff.

“Spirits” has a different vibe than the other tracks, trading bars with E-Po over this soulful trap infusion, dripping with gem after gem. “My life is far from perfect, but better tha expected,” is one jewel that shone extra bright.

Through the sense of sadness that dwells in the bars of this project, there are rays friends of light beaming from the content. From living through the system and having to readjust his entire life — and see so-called friends for what they truly are — gives this project an overwhelming aura of thoughtful reflection. Lazarus is a Hebrew word that translates to “God has helped,” which is fitting, as this is the type of music that saves lives. Recommended listening.

Early!
