"Never have a job, but always work harder than anyone you know. And you will find that the work that you do is just a lens through which to view and experience the world, and only for a time. The goal is to make living itself and the act of being alive one’s vocation, knowing full well that nothing ultimately can be planned or anticipated, no blueprint found to predict the outcome of something as complex as a human life. If one can remain open to the potential of the new, the promise of the unimagined, then magic happens, and a life takes form."
About a month ago, I interviewed Lucki Eck$ in a south side Chicago apartment. It was my third attempt at interviewing Lucki and the first one that was actually successful. Listen to BodyHigh while you read. It doesn’t sound like anything else out right now.
W2NDCH2LL got pushed back to 8/11, but instead of leaving everyone hanging, I released an hour-long mix that features all 33 producers that you will hear on Monday. One song per artist. All Chicago. Enjoy.
In May, I released WindChill, a Chicago instrumental project featuring 18 producers from all over the city. On Tuesday, I am releasing W2NDCH2LL, a double instrumental project/sequel featuring 32 new Chicago producers, splitting them up between BeachSeason and HeatWave. 16 songs per project. 16 producers per project. All Chicago everything, even down to the beautiful artwork done by Via Rosa. Look for it on 8/5 through Mishka Records.
