Let them eat cake.
Distinct One a.k.a. D1 is an emcee/producer from Columbus, Ohio and part of the Philly-based crew Forever Fam. Over the past few years, he has released songs, remixes and freestyles through the internet, college radio, and mixtapes. 2011 is the year where all of the energy goes into more official releases.
‘Soul Blue’ is D1′s first official single; a deep and emotional tale about a relationship gone wrong. It is D1′s heartfelt honesty that pours over the alluring production that will not only capture your attention, but pull your soul in and take you on a rhythmic ride, of a story that expresses feelings that we have all felt at one time or another in the unfair battles that love puts us through. If music is therapy, then it is exactly what life has prescribed for D1. Unafraid and unapologetic to be himself, his personal rhymes are sure to resonate within listeners.
This is one of those songs that you need to really listen to. Give it a few play throughs, focusing on a new element with each. It deeply reminds me of something I woul hear from Kid CuDi or Kanye West – only this track is much more dynamic and that says a lot to place this piece up there with such unique and groundbreaking artists. There’s so much that I could touch on but I really want you to listen for yourselves.
