We are thrilled to share with you “Live Life and Tell Stories”, the new album by Figub Brazlevic & John Robinson.
This album is a celebration of John Robinson’s love for storytelling, which has been evident since he was a child writing lots of stories from his imagination. This is also a manifestation of his passion for hearing the epic storytelling of his favorite emcees of the golden era of hip-hop. The connection between Figub Brazlevic and John Robinson is far from just another international internet collaboration. The two met in 2009 during Robinson’s first tour in Germany. Shortly after, Figub remixed J.R. ‘s group Scienz Of Life’s Leviathan album out of love and respect for their music. These yet-to-be-released remixes impressed J.R. and his SOL crew, and he knew he would work together with Figub in the future. That time has come, and the message is clear: Live Life and Tell Stories is a seamless blend of Robinson’s thought-provoking narratives and Brazlevic’s abstract jazzy boom-bap soundscapes.
This album promises to take listeners on a sonic journey of dope grooves and ill storytelling, where Robinson’s unique storytelling abilities are masterfully interwoven with Brazlevic’s jazzy, boom-bap beats. From start to finish, Live Life and Tell Stories is sure to captivate audiences and keep them grooving to its infectious beats. In an era where the music industry is dominated by short-lived trends, it is refreshing for two seasoned artists to come together to create music that is both timeless and meaningful. This album is a perfect example of what can happen when artists come together to create something truly unique. This is an album you don’t want to miss, so push play and vibe out because Live Life and Tell Stories is Out Now on Digital and Vinyl. Let’s go!
