Atlanta, GA; 23, September 2015: Galactic ploy records is excited to announce Higher Ground, the debut Mixtape from rapper, FIELD DVY. Higher Ground is an experimental musical exploration of identity and cultural heritage according to FIELD DVY.
This tape is set to be released officially on 20 September 2015. Higher Ground was recorded at the prestigious Smash studios in the heart of New York City. A Johannesburg native, FIELD DVY is a talented rapper who began honing his signature Afro pop-Hip hop sound at age 8. He started playing the piano at age 10, and by age 11, he already formed his first band Front line Soldiers. He began writing and recording his own songs on a six track machine he had acquired at age 14. Digging through old records, he discovered the Notorious B.I.G, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Nas. He was also influenced by Bob Marley, Morgan’s Heritage and Fela Kuti.
After releasing his debut single Wonderland, which became a hit within the hip hop community, he is following it up with Higher Ground; a twelve track offering. This mixtape is sharp and immediate in it’s attack, but always tuneful and going for a melody where it counts. On this tape, he attempts to encompass everything from rapper meditations to personal experiences. It describes his transitory revelations and it is his gift for vivid introspection.
“I was feeling very angry, confused, and alone when I made this album; and I wanted to be very honest, even if it meant making some people feel uncomfortable. I originally didn’t have the courage to release Higher Ground because it didn’t fit with the trend of my early releases,” he said.
The production is full of twists and turns because he intended to make the structure of the tape expansive. This tape invites elements of Hiphop, Classic soul, pop and house. On Higher Ground, FIELD DVY explores the themes of loss, nostalgia, redemption, vulnerability, and love. Critics have embraced both the lyrics and their sonic signature.
On this project, he embraces a darker sound while reworking some known street hits and the result is grand and majestic. Higher Ground is available as a free download for fans who sign up to the FIELD DVY mailing list on his official website. On his FACEBOOK PAGE, he presides over community of like-minded FIELD DVY friends who believe in the power of his music to transform and alter reality to a desired state. New FIELD DVY World tour dates are currently being scheduled from September to December, 2015 and will be announced shortly.
