Stream & Download Childish Gambino's Must Hear Funk & Soul Album 'Awaken, My Love!'

Childish Gambino Album

Childish Gambino has released his 11-track album Awaken, My Love! which taps into a new creative direction from the multi-talented artist. Up until this point, Childish Gambino has made hip-hop. In short, this album changed that.

He took a more musical approach, channeling a strong 1970’s Parliament Funkadelic sound that blends soul, funk and rock. Listeners will hear psychedelic guitar, groovy basslines and an array of synthesizers throughout the spacey, and somewhat trippy, project. Gambino surprises us with his vocals which he overlays with several distortion and filter effects. 

The LP, which includes previously-released singles "Me And Your Mama" and "Redbone", was originally debuted live at Joshua Tree for his PHAROS shows. Awaken, My Love! wraps up an impressive year for Gambino, aka Donald Glover, who also launched his critically-acclaimed Atlanta TV show where is he the executive producer, writer and lead actor. Enjoy!

Watch Childish Gambino’s Live Performance Of "Me and Your Mama” in Virtual Reality

Childish Gambino Virtual Reality

Childish Gambino has shared a virtual reality performance of his "Me And Your Mama" single ahead of his much-anticipated album Awaken, My Love. The VR experience was added to his PHAROS Earth app. 

The video comes from his PHAROS shows at Joshua Tree and gives us the first official glimpse into the insane event. Although some fans were able to sneak in footage from the cell phone-banned show, the VR experience truly showcases how unique the event really was. He has also made a limited edition VR vinyl available. We're not exactly sure what that means, but it could mean exclusive access to view the entire PHAROS event in VR.

Gambino played in a dome with tribal-themed projections and costumes. He really took a different route on the album singles as he's gone from making rap to funk and soul-inspired rock that's reminiscent of Parliament Funkadelic and Prince. See some screen shots below of the experience and download the PHAROS Earth app to see it all for yourself. Stay tuned for Awaken, My Love and enjoy!

Domo Genesis of Odd Future Announces Debut Album And Shares First Single "Dapper" With Anderson. Paak

Domo Genesis of Odd Future Announces Debut Album And Shares First Single "Dapper" With Anderson. Paak - Featured Image

Odd Future rapper Domo Genesis has been a staple member of the group for years and has taken on the weed smoker persona of the group with his smoke-themed mixtapes being some of the group’s strongest early work. The Odd Future collective has more or less disbanded as Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt have expressed the crew has matured and began to grow apart as they’ve found their own artistic lanes. 

Now Domo has come to the point where he’s ready to take the step from mixtapes to releasing his debut studio album Genesis on March 25th and stated “"Thanks for the love, its been awhile but im finally ready to give my honest self." The forthcoming album brings features from fellow Odd Future affiliates Tyler The Creator and Left Brain in addition to Anderson .Paak, Wiz Khalifia, Mac Miller, JMSN, King Chip, Juicy J, and more.

Today we have the first single off the project and it’s a collaboration with Anderson .Paak, who’s quickly become a favorite of ours over at TSIS as he’s exploded into the hip hop scene appearing on Dre’s album before dropping his incredible debut album Malibu and signing with Dre’s aftermath imprint. The production on “DAPPER” brings a funky, soulful instrumental laying the groundwork for Domo to deliver silky, groovy flows bringing a different sound than we’ve heard from Domo before leaving us very excited to see what his album has in store for us. This new track sounds like a full band was behind the production and brings a playful vibe apparent in Anderson’s other tracks as these two LA artists worked perfect together. Listen below and enjoy!
