When I was approached to share this new full length project on Only The Beat I was told it would be something "new"...Something "different"...But I hear that everyday. So of course I was skeptical... Then I saw the artwork. camp-wild-side I try not to judge a book by it's cover, or a song by it's artwork. But there seems to be a pretty strong correlation between the execution of the artwork and the amount of time and effort that went into completing a project. How can I expect a song to be good, when I'm selecting them at face value from an inbox filled with other tunes, if someone doesn't care enough about the final project to spend $5 on fiverr having a designer crank out some album artwork for them? You had the time to produce a new track but you didn't have the time (or balls) to ask a friend to design some dope artwork for you? Well, that is exactly why you aren't going to make it. Although it might be unfair as Camp Wild is actually a label, so they have some experience on you, use this opportunity to learn from someone who clearly has some knowledge in the area. Beyond the funky artwork (because I did press play), this 7 track compilation of Camp Wild Artists in a glimpse into the future of Coachella and other blended/EDM-infused Indie Dance events that I believe will be exactly where Generation Z (kids born after 1995) will find themselves after there personal awakening that shakes them to the core and delivers them from the phoniness of pop music. A blend of melodic beats infused with the beauty of the ideologies from early hip-hop, Camp Wild's Wide Skies actually IS something new, refreshing and different that I'm looking forward to listening to over and over again. Got something to say about Camp Wild - Wide Skies? Use #CAMP on social media. Enjoy.
