DJ Tokars – “The Time Is Right” Remix feat. Big Gipp & Bun B


Troy Tyler, a native of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, always had a love for singing. As a child, Troy would sing for his parents who would tell him the truth about his voice; it wasn’t great, but he kept at it singing every chance he could get. He would sing with his father, a musician in his own right, and take the high notes while his father took the lower ones.

LA’s Sophia Knapp returns with the next entry in her Retrograde Releases series: “Lazuli”

“Lapis Lazuli is a stone of divine justice and balance, blue as the sea and sky. Roman soldiers wore it for courage and protection in battle, and ancient Egyptians adorned their dead with Lapis jewelry for safe passage during their trials. It amplifies the ability to act with integrity, to be both a teacher and student.

‘Lazuli’ describes the turbulent atmosphere of America today: a time of unrest and uncertainty, mistrust of the government, and – as far as I’m concerned – all dominant power structures. This song is a prayer for truth to prevail in a land built on deception.
