dFresh – Fresh Gordon (EP)

Fresh (excuse the “pun”) on the heels of his recently released LP “Universal Laws Vol.1,” Delaware’s own dFresh releases a surprise concept EP “Fresh Gordon,” inspired by the iconic comic book character and “Savior of the Universe” Flash Gordon. The FREE to stream EP is fully sampled from Queen’s soundtrack, taken from the cult classic 80’s movie. All production on “Fresh Gordon” is skillfully crafted by the Delaware duo The Hit List (Zachary ‘Zak Morris’ Kerstetter and Gregory ‘The Author’ Durrette II) and dFresh.

The “First State” native emcee/producer seamlessly infuses lyrics from some of his real life events with the movie samples, which combines that new brand of Hip-Hop with the vintage sound we’ve been accustomed to in the past …as dFresh incarnates himself as Fresh Gordon/Flash Gordon.

01.) Flash [Intro] (Produced by The Hit List)
02.) Just Landed (Produced by The Hit List)
03.) Regular Man (Produced by The Hit List & dFresh)
04.) Fresh Gordon (Produced by The Hit List)
05.) Outro (Produced by dFresh)

EK – Dress My Fears (Dir. by Pxvcegodfilms) (Video)

Grammy-winning imprint Defend Music signee Daniel “EK” Ibeh has been building an impressive resume and looks to add onto that with visuals for “Dress My Fears”. In the timely video (following the Caitlyn Jenner story as well as a recently publicized police beating of a 14-year old girl), the Nigerian-American emcee delivers his perspective; unapologetically taking on contemporary discrimination (from skin color, sexual orientation to political views). He manages to do this all while keeping the music refreshing, fueled by a powerful chorus from vocalist Simile.

Fellow Bostonian producer Bueffard Mallary accentuates the track with a cinematic atmosphere; as the chemistry of the duo becomes clear. Don’t be surprised if you find EK’s voice familiar – his “Mean Ol Town” track opened up the Hollywood film “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister And Pete” starring Jennifer Hudson. Yet this is just the beginning for the hard working 24 year old artist, as he aims to destroy all previous project milestones with his upcoming “Hands of Time EP” which will be available for FREE download July 1st via his website at
