After much anticipation Diz Gibran & Moonshine have released their new EP The Return.

I gave Diz a shout to see what he was feeling about the new material. His words:
“For me “The Return EP” is the exact way we’re feeling right now…a smile and a middle finger. This is for the fans to rock with while we complete the “Just In Time For Always” album that’ll be out next year. This is some of our favorite material to date.
After linking up with the production duo, Somehow At Sea, Lateef released this new mixtape in preparation for his new album FIREWIRE dropping 11.8.11. The mixtape has a great blend of electro-pop, funk, hip hop, and rock-solid bars that Lateef has been bringing for last 2 decades. I hadn’t heard Somehow At Sea before, but I have a feeling I’m going to be hearing a lot more from them.
Here’s what Lateef has to say on the project:
“The “Truth at Sea” mixtape is one of the riskiest mixtapes I’ve done. Part Hip-hop, part electronic, part crazy, it has some of my most spitfire verses to date as well as some of my most experimental singing song-writer stuff. Produced entirely by Somehow at Sea and featuring a small, handpicked group of guests, I’m very proud of the finished product.”
Here’s another new track from the Stankonia Sessions featuring Killer Mike, Thurz, and Aleon Craft. Produced by: The Royal Flush and Marc Real.
