Joining Quadron on the road for their first US tour was an enlightening experience. We were blown away by Coco’s soulful voice! Finally 5 months later, we’ve done what we have been dying to do… a performance of “Pressure” on camera, a stripped down, melodic version of this iconic song. We collaborated with Rebekah Raff on the Harp, Engineer Ken Bts, Theo Jamison and Grace Oh.
It’s not too often you find someone as special as Coco. We want everyone to see the same rays of sunshine that we’ve seen and to highlight her unique talent. Share this with your friends and family. We hope this touches everyone as deeply as it did us.

Bilal’s “The Dollar, Black Milk remix. This remix has been in the works for quite some time. Bilal is a mysterious dude. You never know what might or might not move him. Same goes for Black Milk. These guys move at their own pace and at their own times. Luckily for us, the music gods have been with us on this Airtight journey. Initially, upon listening to the roughs of the album, “The Dollar” was one of the tracks that led Plug Research to sign Bilal. We are happy to see it given a second breath through this new and awesome interpretation.
As a special treat to go along with the premier of Bilal’s newest video directed by Flying Lotus, KenBts remixed a version of Levels for the fans of VTech to download.
“Levels was created in a small basement studio below Shafiq (Husayn)’s home in Los Angeles. Bilal, Shafiq, and I produced the foundation of what would become the song under a certain creative hypnosis. It seemed as if, before our ears, the synthetic sounds and beeps congealed into a single living, pulsating organism. It would then soon sprout wings, carrying under them an all-encompassing message. Levels has since taken a life unto its own, bringing in interpretations from Flying Lotus and Sonnymoon; furthering what may be no called the “Levels Experiment.” The remix I provided follows in the tradition of the original song’s spirit: an ambitious exploration of sound, space and emotion; an aviary craft bursting into the embers of a maiden flight.
