Slushii has been keeping his head down, working hard to bring us his sophomore album DREAM — and it’s finally here. Instead of the usual bubbly future bass and dubstep, the producer takes a drastic shift with his artistry, with glimmering reflections of his familiar sound over mostly somber tones and atmospheres.
Last month, Slushii braced fans for this new release and prefaced the album with his real, unfiltered thoughts. The concept of this album is to not hide behind his feelings, but show them. And, that’s pretty awesome.
ok it’s time to be very real with you guys. as some of you may know i’ve had on and off depression since i was little due to bullying in school and having Aspergers. my outlet has always been to write about happier things to make me feel better. but this time around i wondered what it would be like if i was 100% honest about my feelings in my music, and actually let my emotions and true self show. what you’re getting is the darkest, and most nostalgic music i’ve ever released. i made this album with the hopes to touch people that are like me, and help them escape from their sadness, if even for a brief moment. this album is me, imperfections and all.
We have to say, we love this side of Slushii. If we all celebrated ourselves, including our imperfections, a little more — the world might be a better place. Get lost in the 16-track self-discovery that is DREAM right here.
