It was a great pleasure working with Ev at the Dilated studio in LA. Right now, his production skills are on par with the best. We wanted to take listeners back to a time when Lyrics were in the foreground-Image, fame, money and all that other stuff was secondary. Back to the Basics!

Right now, his production skills are on par with the best. We wanted to take listeners back to a time when Lyrics were in the foreground-Image, fame, money and all that other stuff was secondary. Back to the Basics!"
