I love collaborations and exchanging energy with younger artistst“
“I would go into my studio feeling inspired and laydown tracks. These began to evolve organically, each track having its moment, creatively,” says Da L.E.S of his working process. “It came to represent being positive when dealing with adversity, keeping your head up during challenges, overcoming and surviving.
