I am very honored to present this album to everyone, i have been so excited to share this one with you. A stunning album with 11 tracks including 2 intstrumentals. Mecca:83 has really worked hard on this album and you can really tell, everything is just perfectly put together and the collaborations are truly on point.
The album will be available on Vinyl and CD. Pre-order link will be up and running very soon!
Has it really been 5 years since the last installment?! Since Volume.2 dropped I’ve gone through a few changes: from having 2 kids, to moving home and changing careers.. not to mention running the Expansions Collective label. But I always manage to return to the source eventually.
Life Sketches has always been about collaboration. The record is as much about the people who contributed to it as it is about me. From Buscrates and Octavio Santos, to Grap Luva and Von Pea, the artists on this record are people I both admire and respect. This record wouldn’t be possible without them.
Share it with a friend if you can.
And thank you.
