Being here on the East Coast, I don’t know TOO much about LA’s Def Sound. What I do know is that he is one of the West Coast’s emerging creative class MCs and he is currently on tour with J*Davey right now. Our writer Simone was impressed at his showing at Liv this month, and he’s living up to his “Ghandi, Sammy Davis, Jr., and ODB All in One” ascetic. The song (A)Gain (props to the Bird and The Bee sample) has been floating around the Internets for a while, but it’s the video that makes the track what it is. You can tell off the bat that they put time and work into this video to make it what it is, and the wardrobe stylist Dominique Dawson had her work cut out for her.
Def Sound has two projects in the works. His mixtape Anything drops soon, and I’m most certainly looking forward to his collabo with Couch Sessions faorite Nikko Gray called Love.Shaped.Love.Sound. Follow him @defsound on Twitter.
