A familiar name, but not face to Flagrant City, is Gianni Lee, DJ and Babylon Cartel fashion designer. Years ago we featured Gianni’s TrillWave Mixtape Series where he would release a compilation of up and coming artists. This recent release from Gianni is a bit more insightful and personal than the previous compilations he has worked on.
“B L U is all about my growth as a person. Growing up in West Philadelphia I had six different cats all named Blu. If one would die or runaway we would eventually get another feline and I would again name him Blu. If these cats were personified and Blu #1 wanted to know how I grew up he could only be able ask Blu #6 about my growth. These six cats existed in different stages of my life as these six tracks were influenced by different stages of my life.” – Gianni Lee
B L U is a journey through various time periods and soundscapes drawing inspiration from Club Music , House , Grime , R&B and Folk. Containing six tracks B L U is an experience from start to finish.
My favorite tracks from the project include Yellow, Red, Blue and Black, which features the soulful sounds of Marian Mereba.
