New York native DJ Preservation returns with his new album, “Eastern Medicine, Western Illness”.
“While living in Hong Kong starting in 2014, I witnessed the umbrella protest movement,” Preservation says. “During my three-year stay, the negative news was coming in from the West. This experience fueled me and perhaps subconsciously influenced the sounds of the album. The act of creating was my solace. Once I returned to NY, the news came in from the East as the youth continued to stand up in Hong Kong and Covid-19 first hit mainland China. The goal of the album is to bring together the East and West in sound and culture. I never could have imagined that this music would be released in these times, but I’m grateful to be in a position to provide some form of medicine. Walk with me.”
The project is 13 tracks deep and includes guest features from Roc Marciano, Your Old Droog, Quelle Chris, GrandeMarshall, Nickelus F, KA, Mach-Hommy and more.
