A unique display of social commentary in favour of human compassion,
Kojey Radical has never been one to shy away from speaking out in a way that connects with a new generation of listeners. Joined this time by the enigmatic Frank Gamble who produced and features on the record. Blind Eye provides a sound bed of cultural back breaking drums, cinematic synths and infectious groove inducing piano chords, juxtaposing Kojey’s vivid poetical portrait of injustices suffered in the middle east and other neglected parts of the world.
Blind Eye connects in an instant and continues to grow more melodic and insightful upon every listen. Kojey offers a perspective inspired by
empathy and understanding speaking directly to the listener.
“Prayer for the lost ones, tweets for the victims. I could see it all when I listened, smoke choked to silence.”
Every line paints a picture, Blind Eye does not choose sides but rather encourages us to look to each other for better understanding of humanity, breaking issues down to our most basic needs and instincts.
Love, Power and Survival.
When speaking with I-D magazine about the record Kojey said
“The artists I love and respect are the ones that painted a picture of the times they live in. I think it’s easy to sometimes forget the power and effect of music. The injustices suffered in the world can often make you feel helpless and I’ve always felt I could do more with my artistry. I’m thankful I grew up in such a melting pot of culture because it allowed me to listen and learn and appreciate different perspectives. I wanted to put a sense of compassion in my art and give something for all generations to listen and appreciate
Frank Gamble and I simply invite you all to love, overall.”
After much anticipation, Kojey Radical is ready to reveal his second official EP following the acclaimed Dear Daisy : Opium project will out early 2016 and is currently titled 23 WINTERS.
