ERROARS 3.3: 起死回生 – NEW ALBUM! OUT NOW!
January 11, 2017 – Long Island, NY – Producer/MC, formerly known as MeccaGodZilla releases new album titled “ERROARS 3.3: 起死回生” under the new name ADUM⁷. Almost 2 full years removed from releasing an album, the title “起死回生” is a metaphor that means ‘awaken from death and return to life.’
Out now, it’s an extremely emotional, vulnerable work, one that plunges into a very real heartbreak of ADUM⁷’s not so distant past. Separating from his spouse after half a decade together, the producer labelled ‘ERROARS 3.3: 起死回生’ a “heartbreak album.”
Describing the break as “the most intense dose of self reflection chased by 2 gallons of painful uncertainties” the readjustment spawned a new way of working.
Prepping for the release and a return to afrofuturism ADUM⁷ elaborates. “… so crazy, I remember not eating for 5 days… I literally had to force myself to eat and get sun. I started working out more and meditating but pain truly changed me. The only way I could regain my footing was to start creating. I found a week long crash course online and taught myself how to play chords on piano in order to be fully self expressed with my music production. I didn’t want to simply sample records or lean on listening to previous works find inspiration. Digging for sounds is great don’t get me wrong…but the sounds were all inside of me and I needed to create and hadouken it all ‘instantly.’ Jeez…speaking about this up until last fall was slightly difficult… I didn’t want to write songs because of where my head was at…instrumentals were the way to go. It was my way to share energy that didn’t violate the choices of my ex you know? Break ups are wild, regardless of why they happen…I didn’t want to go so low frequency to the point I started losing myself…so instrumentals were the better choice. I thank the universe for artists like Björk, Beck and Taku..I leaned on them heavy during this time.”
ERROARS 3.3: 起死回生 surprisingly features ADUM⁷’s return to the mic on the song titled “Black Mirror” inspired by the Netflix episode “The Entire History of You.” This last minute addition to the tracklist is engineered by J. Stylez by way of MHNM and E.R. of Richsonz Inc.
Earlier this month, A⁷ also released another project called “光: Let There Be…” in tribute to a friend (Daniel “Majesty” Sanchez) that sadly ascended in 2016’s fierce calling of loved ones back to the essence.
