OP Swamp 81

I don’t remember the day and time I first heard this gem but I remember the feeling, I was STUCK.  Every now and then I hear something that sticks with me and I can listen to it over and over again and get the same feeling as the very first time I heard it.  “Another Day” is definitely close to the top of my most played list of the past year. Hopefully there’s more to come from the minds and mouths of this D.C. collective.  The video gives you a glimpse into the message behind OP Swamp 81’s melody.  Be sure to check out Bilal Salaam’s other work on iTunes including collabs with Muhsinah and Raheem Devaughn.

Muhsinah

Snatched from her site:

Pronounced [mu•sē•nə] – Singer, producer, vigilante, lover, dreamer.

Having landed on the musical radar like some kind of a phantom battleship, this Washington D.C. native continues to fires away at us, sinking nay-sayers and making a name for herself at a rate which some might consider alarming. Appearing on a slew of independent releases this year, Muhsinah has earned each and every title that’s been thrown her way- engineer/producer/composer/singer/songwriter/arranger/inspiration and the like. Contrary to popular misconception, Muhsinah was not dropped off on this planet by some enigmatic cosmic force; she hitched a ride on her own star.
