What began in January 2022 as an idea to maybe do a couple songs or an EP quickly became a full length project with the only stated guideline being a shared love for Prince Paul and the Native Tongues movement. Dave -traveling constantly for work and music tours- visited no less than 60 cities in 10 different countries while working on the album, while Controller 7 kept a steady supply of beats in Dave’s inbox. Controller 7 suggested prompts when he had them, or tried sampling things Dave suggested. The trove of beats allowed Dave to pick and choose from an outsized variety of beats and go wherever he wanted sonically. The album became all kinds of different things, travel reflections, personal mantras, letters to self, and fun with words- all held together by Dave’s point of view, and Controller 7’s unpredictable sounds. Dave tells a story of Prince Paul casually, saying if he and Mike would have been around back in the Native Tongue days that they would have been in the crew. This album is the album that comes out of Dave visiting that dream world and making an album that can somehow fit in the family of his favorite albums.
