My advice to you? Watch this video as loud as possible. And don’t fight the dance party it might inspire. Especially considering it’s just one more day until you find yourself loaded up on turkey (or tofurkey), unbalanced NFL match-ups, and the kind of late-evening naps that only a once-a-year holiday meal can provide.
This is “Running” from The Electric. The who? Oh, just the latest collaboration from three of my favorite people to listen to: DJ Vadim, Pugs Atomz, and Sabira Jade. You can get more thorough bios for the group and its members here, but the short story? Vadim’s a DJ whose last two albums (The Soundcatcher and U Can’t Lurn Imaginashun) are two of my favorite things I’ve purchased in recent years. Pugs Atomz is a Chicago MC who just released this, and pops up all over Vadim’s U Can’t Lurn…. And Sabira Jade does the same. Especially on this absolute burner of a dance party jam:
You can pre-order The Electric’s debut single “Beautiful” feat. (Yarah Bravo) right here starting December 6, and hopefully soon, a full-length– both of which are attached to DJ Vadim and Yarah Bravo’s own label, O.G.S. (Organically Grown Sounds).
(Special thanks to Chicago comrade DJ Intel for the heads up.)
