RAURY – ALL WE NEED

Raury’s long-awaited follow-up to his debut EP ‘Indigo Child’ is finally upon us.  Featuring singles ‘Friends‘ and ‘Forbidden Knowledge‘, his first major label album brims with the ‘Hippy Rap’ of its pre-predecessor, and goes on to explore the young ATLien’s darker, more angst-ridden side.  With very few features, ‘All We Need’ is – as expected…

SBTRKT – HIGHER [FT. RAURY]
