I loved the original and this remix of Alex Wiley’s “Vibration” from Honest gives the track an extended life span in my personal rotation. My homie Nate from Earmilk put together a perfect write up on the man Honest himself and on this track which you can read down below.

“I blame Splash House. I really do. Not for reintroducing me to a past love; rather because so many producers are jumping on the tropical/lush house craze and/or are finally pushing through the cracks. Each one captivates in a different way. Too many emotions to handle at once. From Bearson to Kygo, to C2C and Jonah Baseball, the summertime sound is here to stay. As the list of monikers grows, we mustn’t forget who was at the forefront of the style before it blew up. Arizona’s Honest.”
Dope new music from Kembe X brought to you by the fine people at SCION AV. More info below.

This is hardly my favorite track from Alex Wiley but it’s still better than most of the stuff posted on your favorite hip hop blog. The one thing that this video does do for me is get me pumped for Toronto. Everybody seems to love the dot and I need to get back up there very soon.
So here we are again. Years later, the same platform that started it all will now hopefully serve as the base for a revival. There is more music than ever and where originality should flourish in a wide open landscape, kids jump at the chance to conform and put out noise that simply mimics whatever is “hot”.
This is a blog that will celebrate the dope. The creativity that keeps music an always evolving art. This will be a blog for those beats that you can’t ignore and for lyrics that ring true to their intent.
I’ll do my best to always bring what I feel is best. Be it live from whatever show I can get a camera into or from the songs I’m able to find as I continue to look for that next big thing.
If you used to come by here once in a while back in the day, welcome back. If you’re new, I’m sorry If I talk a lot of shit.
