Premiere: Decorated emcee Shamon Cassette and Arizona-based producer Manny Megz share Lo-Fi four-track EP ‘NEWDAYNEWAVENEWLIFE4ME’

The “micro movie” was filmed and edited by Shamon Cassette for WAVECRUSHER TV.

Opening with an alarming message about the future of the youth, Shamon Cassette and Manny Megz implemented a speech given by a young person in 1992 on the intro of their joint project. ‘NEWDAYNEWAVENEWLIFE4ME’ is a collection of poetic positive affirmations, all conceived in under three hours in a kitchen in Koreatown (Los Angeles), placed over cinematic style Lo-Fi production. It’s a short six-minute project released in partnership with St Ides, the iconic malt liquor company popularised by Black American culture during the late 80s and early 90s. Listen to the four-track EP in its entirety below. There are also cassette versions available.
