Summer Solstice: is your Earth Amplified?

Just in time for the longest day of the year - this glorious summer solstice - EARTH AMPLIFIED, the new full-length album by ACE Educator AshEl Seasunz + J. Bless is out now and AVAILABLE HERE!

This seminal Green Hip Hop album features lyrics that touch on many of the environmental and socio-political issues of the day, covering topics from food and water security, climate change, poverty and prisons, to the potential for social transformation.

Lead by Oakland-based frontman Seasunz and produced by Brooklyn-based J.Bless and multi-instrumentalist Golden Horns, the organic sound of Earth Amplified’s heavy, layered beats blend influences ranging from afrobeat, dancehall, funk and old school soul with the jazz vibes of Golden Era Hip Hop.

"This is music for our movement. Seasunz and J.Bless are putting the culture back in agriculture."

- Van Jones, Co-Founder of Ella Baker Center, Founder, Green For All, Former White House Advisor on Green Jobs

"Heat! The whole album is nuts... that Fugees 2010 with hot lyrics... fresh soulful organic vibe that is refreshing and inspiring. I salute the words, the flow, the music and the message..."
