Jalal Salaam and ewonee's Past Lives stands among the top releases of 2016. And in 2017 it sees a deluxe vinyl release via House Shoes' Street Corner Music. The 2LP-set comes complete with the instrumental versions and an insert containing all the lyrics. The urgency of these recordings is reflective of the times we live in. Jalal Salaam's raps are a perfect marriage to ewonee's production, eschewing contemporary sounds for an album incredibly well balanced between tradition and progression.
