The first full length album from Vancouver’s Self Evident is set to drop March 22nd on South Fork Sound, a label curated out of Long Island by producer & DJ Blind Prophet. The album is a sprawling 12-track affair, drawing from a myriad of influences & sounds including footwork, garage, dubstep, dancehall, house & everything in between. Off the top, my favorites are the first track “Go Down Low,” and “Birth Of Light” – the juxtaposition of ragga samples & stripped-down footwork really makes it stand out.
Self Evident also dropped an exclusive mix for American blog The Dankles last week, packed with tunes from the forthcoming album & other exclusives including a collaborative remix with Bevvy Swift, collabs with HxdB, Dan Solo & more.
This album is South Fork Sound’s first full-length release, though they’ve released a few singles that have been popping up in my sets quite often, including tunes by label owner Blind Prophet, UK-based newcomer Wen & the Archie Pelago remix of Aoim & Muveo‘s “The BDA.”
Self Evident can be seen at The Astoria on April 6th for a special B2B vs. set with fellow Lighta! Sound crew member, Taal Mala – click the poster for full info..
