Relaunch! (Obey City – “Fallin”)
All it took was a simple email. Earlier this morning, a representative from LuckyMe shot on email to The Astral Plane team asking us to take down an “embarrassing” press photo of Obey City that we had posted last March. In the quest to find the image in our media archives, I got sidetracked and, to make a long story short, became remarkably nostalgic. See, I’ve been working a full time job and, unfortunately, the blog has fallen by the wayside. It was just one of those occasions where priorities had to be shifted and The Astral Plane fell into disrepair. Don’t think that our lovely readers (the few that are left at least) and the artists we cover have been forgotten though. It’s with pleasure that our team is looking to relaunch and get back on the proverbial (blogging) horse. It made all too much sense that LuckyMe/Obey City gave us this initial propulsion as the Glasgow label and Brooklyn producer have been a constant on these pages since our inception last January. Obey City will release his LuckyMe debut, the Champagne Sounds EP, on August 6 with another beverage influenced EP (Merlot Sounds) coming soon after. You might recognize “Fallin” from Rustie’s (still) seminal Essential Mix from last year. Expect to see a lot more of this and that on The Astral Plane in the coming days, weeks and months. As always, we love you!
