Following the momentum of his driving dancefloor record with AC Slater, “On The Run” released under Skrillex’ new label, The Nest, Baltimore-born, Atlanta-based vocalist/lyricist/producer Micah Freeman presents Heartspace Vol 1. This is the first of a series of 3, 3-song EP’s which will be released May, June & July. A release party at the W Hotel in Downtown Atlanta on Saturday May 17th was thrown in celebration of the kickoff of the Heartspace trilogy, where attendees vibed out to a suit & tie clad performance of the new records and left with limited edition, hand-stamped hard copies. Conceptually, these 3 EP’s are a continuation of the Time Traveler’s story from his last release, The Timepiece. Now, he travels inward, and keeps it funky while doing so.
All three EP’s are self-produced, arranged, and written. and hold a heavy influence from the funk and soul of the Late 70’s – Early 80’s, and are delivered with the sensibilities of contemporary hip-hop and electronic music. The title, artwork and subject matter of the songs glow with deeper meaning; esoteric references to the literary works and spiritual teachings of Drunvalo Melchizedek, Eckhart Tolle and Baba Ram Dass of love, inner peace, and ascension. Each EP highlights a different phase of the Time Traveler’s journey, each one venturing further inward, through personal dysfunction, through his own ego, and through life challenges, seeking to transcend it all and find our innermost essence in the heart.
Micah has shared stages with J*Davey, Anthony David, Cyhi Da Prynce, Robert Raimon Roy, Jesse Boykins III, Kilo Kish, Yelawolf, Project Pat, Theophilus London, and many others. Show dates will be updated & posted on his website.
