I Wish (lead single)

From the full album press release below: 


The album’s first communiqué, I Wish, initiates the listener through a burst of kicks keeping the pace, laced with an eerie bass and graginharp (created in 2022) to create a deep groove of movement and attention. Xception is right there from the first beat almost daring you to come along on the ride. Immediately, his flow hits as hard as the beat, but like the beat, falls into a brooding groove and carries through with a collage of 2030’s trip straight through the end of the track - when the transmutation actually begins. The track is available on iTunes, Spotify, and the group’s Bandcamp page.

Artist: G-DO & Xception

Album: 2030

Label: Goal Records                                                                                                                         

G-DO & Xception continue pushing their limits and this time they took it to the next dimension, literally. Using an advanced technology, developed by Himalayan rocket yogis, the duo traveled to the year 2030 in search of a funk, feeling, and future where Hip Hop is essential for moving bodies, uniting life, and lifting minds with every pulse. Vibing in far galaxies, recovering universal jewels of vibration and perspective, upon their return G-DO & Xception went to the lab and grew 2030.

Having observed the intense connection between cultures of the future, the far out, and now, G-DO used the newly discovered discunkture scale to compose a foundation of music that communicates across generations of soulful bounce with hard-hitting drums, spacey funk, and an eclectic palette of galactic sound samples recorded in the Andromeda galaxy. Understanding the language of the music, Xception penned it’s reflection for the conscious comprehension of the listeners. Consequently, his rhymes float through both complex and comfortable flows mirroring the unified diversity and wisdom of timelessness discovered on the journey to 2030.

The album’s first communiqué, I Wish, initiates the listener through a burst of kicks keeping the pace, laced with an eerie bass and graginharp (created in 2022) to create a deep groove of movement and attention. Xception is right there from the first beat almost daring you to come along on the ride. Immediately, his flow hits as hard as the beat, but like the beat, falls into a brooding groove and carries through with a collage of 2030’s trip straight through the end of the track - when the transmutation actually begins. The track is available on iTunes, Spotify, and the group’s Bandcamp page.

Now two years since Xception, from Chicago’s south side, moved to G-DO’s hometown Amsterdam, the duo are propelling their Goal Music Group imprint to all new heights from what began as a long distance partnership five albums ago in 2009. 2030 features Goal Music Group family Mark Nieuwenhuis on trumpet and songstress Shishani, both of whom have new releases on the horizon. G-DO & Xception will conduct several ceremonies of movement throughout Europe coinciding with the Orionids meteor shower and the October 23rd release of the album with appearances scheduled in the Netherlands, Germany, France, and the UK. 2030 carries a sound and vision of the future, but 2030 is now.
