"NUGLIFE 2020" : A museum of sound, giving vibes of the current times...
On Friday March 13th, L.A. based producer, NugLife, releases his 3rd single "All I Wanna Do" for the debut producer project "NUGLIFE 2020" which is scheduled for release April 20th. The anticipated project has notable producer/artist collaborations with the likes of Issa Gold, Yung Simmie, Planet Asia, Vel the Wonder, and many more underground household names to be announced. There is one minor, but major difference with this single from the entire project. This unique track features both production & vocals from the producer "NugLife" himself. On this potent single, Nug's takes you into the world of the stoner producer, his perspectives, & an overall musical high through lyric and composition. This track touches on the similar psychedelic sounds, inspirations and lyricisms of The Beatles & Jimi Hendrix, with a modern hip hop stylistic twist that you'd expect from NugLife. "All I Wanna Do" is currently the creme of the crop in avante-guarde music coming out of the West Coast underground scene. Artwork: A Sims

"NUGLIFE & YUNG SIMMIE"
Launching off the New Year on a very lit note, "No New Friends" is the 2nd follow up single for the "NugLife 2020" producer project, which is anticipated to drop this Spring from LA based producer, NugLife. This new track brings you a classic rugged gritty flow from Florida legend Yung Simmie, along side grimey strings & heavy bass, showing listeners the more “turnt up” side to Nug's production spectrum. Simmie & Nug's meet halfway with their styles & genres on this track, to present a collaborative gem for the underground trap scene.
"J SOLSTICE & NUGLIFE"
All new single "With You" brought to you as a product of the "NugLife Freestyle Challenge" that was held this past October. After winning the challenge, J Soulstice and I got the chance to hold a studio session where I delivered him his "free" prize winning NugLife instrumental of choice. He brought witty lyricism into the studio, and great conversations that got me excited about the next generation & his duo group "Zensoul" (J Soulstice & Zen Stokely). This new single "With You" gives an essence of music that echoes urban city influences & respects to the culture of hip hop through the soundscape.
