Kev Choice has been busy in the studio with Oakland vocalist Jennifer Johns to produce (in its entirety) “Chronicles of The Aquarian Mind”, a collaborative project between the two artists. In a recent interview with the San Francisco Bay View newspaper he described the music as “a fusion of Afro-Beat, House, Hip-Hop and Soul. Sounds of Oakland, Africa and the Caribbean. An incredible synthesis of sound.”
The title track from the upcoming release, “Aquarius”, has recently been made available online for download. Look out for more music from this project and name your price to download “Aquarius”.
