about

B4Lasers' brings us his 4th full length release "Growin' Painz," which is a musical odyssey of resilience and reflection. This remarkable album emerges as a compelling fusion of hiphop, lofi, and instrumental boombap, paying homage to the iconic sounds of J Dilla, The Alchemist, Large Professor, Submerse, Long Arm, OhRicky, and Dibia$e, while crafting a distinctive narrative that is undeniably his own.

"Growin' Painz" encapsulates the universal theme of this young black man's journey through life's intricate tapestry. With unflinching authenticity, the album delves into the depths of love, the raw realities of the streets, the complexities of friendships, confrontations with adversaries, the quest for belonging, and the profound loss of cherished loved ones.

The album's inception was spurred by the title themed track "Growin' Painz," the lyrics state, "I'm Growing Older Now, Now I'm Learning How, To BE," these simple words served as a beacon of inspiration that ignited the creation of this deeply personal and evocative musical narrative. This auditory masterpiece becomes a mirror of the soul, meticulously threading together his personal experiences, aspirations, and influences, painting a vivid sonic portrait that defies soulless musicality in favor of genuine connection.

Crafting each composition using Koala Sampler & his SP404 MKII; The album reverberates with an unfiltered genuine appeal, a testimony to B4Lasers' dedication to artistic integrity. While predominantly a solo endeavor, the album does boast notable appearances by Biirthplace and the Grammy-nominated trumpeter Ryan Svendsen, adding layers of depth and emotional resonance to this profound opus. Now standout tracks like "In My Head" featuring Biirthplace evoke the bittersweet nostalgia of first love, while "SinceIMetU" delves into the raw emotion of heartbreak. "ColdMfknInterlude" ignites with a fiery intensity, and "Mi Fav Ting (Lilac Flwr)" envelopes listeners in a warm cocoon of cherished memories.

B4Lasers does have some notable past accomplishments that have laid a formidable foundation, with "Amore, Eterno" gaining recognition on Bandcamp's New & Noteworthy and "Luvmewhileimhere" securing a coveted spot on the prestigious Spotify editorial list "Lofi Cafe". "Thank Him," from B4Lasers' debut album "Carpe Diem," earned its rightful place on Vinyl Moon's esteemed 12-inch LP compilation Vol. 88 Fluidité, Humidité, Mysteré.

Mark your calendars for Friday, October 13th, 2023, as "Growin' Painz" makes its resounding debut. The album's presence will be felt on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and all major streaming platforms, accompanied by a limited-edition cassette release. Through "Growin' Painz," B4Lasers wants to immerse listeners in a symphony of emotions, sharing the cadence of his journey, and forging a profound connection through music, family, friends, and the essence of life itself. It's a beautifully crafted narrative that touches the soul, and echoes authenticity that will be cherished eternally.
