Following the release of the 1st single "Str8" and positive feedback from Nicolas Ouellet's Nouveaux Sons show on Ici Musique (Radio-Canada) and other media, Aldo Guizmo continues his momentum with a new track entitled "How much a dem".
"How much a dem", composed by Aaron Fearon (Jemyni beatz), is a deep, introspective song. With its melancholy piano and strong bass, the instrumental plunges us into a dark universe, reflecting the reality of certain people.
The track "How much a dem" offers a striking depiction of the ruthless reality of young people living on the streets or on the edges of society. Through a touching narrative, this song raises the hard-hitting question of the bill to be paid for every action taken, and explores the complicated and generally tragic situations these young people face. All too often, their deepest stories unravel in the hands of the law, the walls of prison, or in the silence of the cemetery.
The universe of the play is imbued with a gloomy, suffocating atmosphere, where every decision seems to be an indispensable part of a complex puzzle aimed at day-to-day survival. The streets thus become a veritable theater of human drama, and the young people, desperate to escape, regularly find themselves trapped in a whirlwind of inevitable events.
Mixed by Thomas Garandeau (Tows) and mastered by Gary Guillaume Derussy (Gary Wide), distributed by Bohemaa Communication/Symphonic Canada, How much a dem is now available on all digital platforms.
