Friday Jam: Kalae All Day x The Sun, The Moon & the Stars EP

I’m always looking for music to put on my Friday workout mix, and what good way to bring in the weekend with “The sun, The Moon, & The Stars”.  Harlem Native, Kalae is a songwriter/emecee/singer and what is said to be a “vandal”.  Apparently I’ve been missing out, because she’s been on the New York scenes for a couple years now opening for artists like Talib Kweli, CL Smooth, Pharoahe Monch, and Dead Prez.  Kalae All Day released her first project entitled “AFROMATIKNEOHHIPPEROCK*SOLEMUSIK*”  which was produced by Princess Superstar. Her first single, “O.G.LYRIKALBOOKBAGGER feat. Homeboy Sandman” hit the blog scene with a music video that was scene worldwide.  I love the angles and the bright colors and of course her afro!

Kalae All Day recently released her EP  this past April, The Sun, The Moon & the Stars and can you say AWESOME?!  All five songs represent an underlying theme of the galaxy.  Her diversity as an artist makes her stand out because she is able to sing and rap, quite like the skills of the legendary Lauryn Hill.  I notice that her strengths in creativity are well expressed through all of her music but as a newcomer to her craft, it gives me refreshing appreciation for music and production on this EP.  Her song “Eclipse” eludes a very jazzy, afro beat feel, where as “Sun & Moon” bring the pure hip hop.  An opening statement I’d like to call it, but Kalae All Day is definitely a breathe of fresh air from the typical hip hop scene right now.

Enjoy your weekend 🙂
