(In the interest of full disclosure, K. Wylin is a personal friend of mine, but I’m not just writing this to be a good friend – I actually believe in his message and think that his music is worth a listen. If you’re in the area on December 5th, come to the release party and check him out!)
On December 4th, 2010 Street Shop Records recording artist K. Wylin will release “The Bodega” an inspiring, soul-searching and hard-hitting project that far eclipses any of his previous efforts. This album hits home with fresh perspective andÂ an obvious spiritual and emotional awakening for the artist and his audience. “The Bodega” album release party will take off December 5th at Paradise Perks in Irvine with special guests, musical performances by K. Wylin and DJ Efechto. Admission is free, and press and fans alike are encouraged to come from 6:30 p.m.- 9:30 p.m.
In 2009, despite good reviews and a budding career, K. Wylin took a break from the music scene to spend over a year serving as a missionary in Mexico. Through this life-changing experience, the artist emerges with a new purpose, new message, and “The Bodega”, a project which embraces his last formative year and the life he’s found in Christ.
Every track on “The Bodega” is filled with easy-to-groove-to beats and no-nonsense messages. â€œGiving Children Hopeâ€, the first single released from the album, asks what kind of legacy we are leaving for the next generation, and you can hear the artist’s passion in his vocal range and stunning beats.Â Of course, hip-hop has always embraced celebration, so tracks likeÂ â€œUp on the Upbeatâ€ â€œI’ma Always Have Love For Caliâ€ and â€œThe Getdownâ€ give a souled-out excuse to party down. The album rounds out with relevant, emotionally packed messages from â€œWho We Listenin’ To’?â€ “My Family” and â€œFill Me Upâ€ -Â all songsÂ that challenge convention, turnÂ questions on end andÂ give the listenerÂ an inspired joyride toÂ “The Bodega” and back.
