Canadian producer Newselph’s team hit my line recently with a new-to-me song. “Promise Land” was originally released in 2017, but was remade recently. The remake (above) is a bit more chilled-out than the original, which allows Gardin’s vocals and lyrics to pierce through that much more.
I liken this song to something along the lines of my own “Promised Land” with Wayne Watts–in some ways. That’s mainly because both songs wish for an uplift in the world. On top of that, both songs aim to make each of us happier and more free to be who we want. Newselph’s production here is a highlight because of its jazzy nature and Gardin’s flow and lyrics are thought-provoking while still being quite uplifting.
If you want your positive conscious rap to have a bit of an ATCQ vibe to it, this one’s right up your alley. Check it out above and support dope music in all its forms.
