It’s been over a year since the Chicago based MC D-Win released new music, but that all changes this week. The concept album Kubrick EP is the latest project from D-Win and is by far one of his most abstract bodies of work. The project was executively produced by Chicago native Tek X and is ultimately a collaborative effort from both artist.
Given the most recent events that have taken place in America, the past year was enough motivation to release the project. ‘Kubrick’ is a concept album that explores current issues in America; racism, police brutality, and manipulation of the media.
The EP is titled after legendary-and often labeled at times controversial-film director Stanley Kubrick. The album was inspired by Kubrick’s methods, which drew you in, but unexpectedly gave you a message from something you wouldn’t expect.
The current single “Walking On Water” was released last week along with a solid visual created by Nick Mecca of Visual Mecca. The single is a glimpse into the overall message of the ‘Kubrick’ EP. The project is provocative and offers listeners an honest point of view of what it’s like to be young and black in America in 2015. The release of the EP was created with the hopes to enlighten and inspire those who are seeking a shift in the right direction.
