BOULEVARDS - ACKRYLIC CITY EP
Taking cues from the greats like Earth, Wind & Fire, Cameo, Talking Heads, Prince, Daft Punk and OutKast, Boulevards has crafted a dynamic album that takes the listener on an explosive journey through the multi-faceted spheres of pop music.
The Ackrylic City EP slices through genres like a smoothly sharpened blade, pushing the limits of punk til your ears bleed, seducing you with funk, and then lulling you into a soulful reverie.
For Boulevards, it has all been the product of a broad musical upbringing. "My father is radio DJ. He used to always put me on to new music as a teen growing in the South. He said, 'Son, you have to listen to every genre music to be great and fully understand music.'"
Winding his way from the dusty roads of North Carolina to the urban sprawl of New York City, Boulevards currently resides in Brooklyn where he has been working with local heavyweights like NineLives The Cat (The Death Set, Ninjasonik) and Xxxchange (Spankrock, Björk, Kool Keith) to develop his sound.
"The goal in creating music was for the tastemakers, for the avid listener searching for innovative pop music, pop music I would listen too in the iPod generation."
Ackrylic City is available for free download on Soundcloud.
"This EP will make you want to groove out on the dance floor and then talk somebody into going back to your crib." - www.afropunk.com
