Opio x Free the Robots – Stoned Temple Pilot [Stream]

The Souls of Mischief Emcee and LA Beat Scene Vet Recorded Their Sempervirens Album in a Redwood Forest, Share Second Single via Ambrosia For Heads FTR: “I made this track with a certain rhythmic swing in mind to subtly break your neck. Simple, mysterious, and lazy with somewhat of a strait forward Hip Hop vibe. The background lead i added was inspired by 70’s crime films.

Opio (of Hieroglyphics) & Free The Robots – Point Of View [Stream]

Opio: “‘Point of View’was the song that I had the most fun recording.

I made the track fairly simple with limited instrumentation and catchy hook melody, leaving it open enough for Opio to take over. Lyrically he connected with what I was going for in his own way.”
