Dezaray Dawn just passed by with a dope new single which should keep us going until the new project release next year. “B-tween-the-Lines” is one of those little jems that has been resting in her catalog needing a place to dwell, thankfully iv just found somewhere nice for it! This is a freebie for Black Friday which will not be included on her upcoming “The Dawning” album, due early 2012. By the way, if you didn’t pick up her last EP (produced by Marc Mac), pass by and grab a copy HERE. We should hopefully be seeing some videos from both projects coming real soon! In the mean time. pick up this free download HERE

His debut “Soul Jazzations” released 2006, his sophomore project, “The Life, The Loss, The Love” 2007, and “Electric Vibes” 2009. With his forth new album due to drop September 2011 the promotion for “Freedom” is now in full swing, and he’s just shared the first single from it titled “Moonlight”.

Shouts to DH & Twin
