Joy is something we all try to find in every day. At times, its located in painfully apparent places. Sometimes, its qualities are more elusive and need to be dug up from overlooked nooks and crannies. At the end of the day, joy is always found in things that are internal and eternal.
James Gardin continues his undefeated streak as The World’s Most Encouraging Rapper™ and reconvenes with his longtime collaborator TheyCallMeHeat. The result is a fresh new single to help people get through their big, medium and small sads. This song is a funky, danceable number that has the soundscape of a Hip Hop spaghetti western. Think joyful, joyful Lord we adore thee meets ambidextrous diddy bop and infectious nod.
Joy is out now on Illect Recordings.
Written by Christopher Mitchell for Breaking Atoms.
