There’s a Volume 2 that is expected to drop later this summer, early fall.
Aside from mix-tapes, David Foral has a history of releasing music as a producer. With his latest track, Foral tapped longtime friend & collaborator, hip-hop artist, Big Nes. Their history goes back to the late ’90’s when Dave was a bassist/DJ & producer for the Long Beach based reggae hip-hop group Chapter 11.
“I’ve been making music with Big Nes for over 15 years now,” Foral tells The Pier. “He was featured on Stone Soup Vol. 1 last year and I was able to get back into the studio with him this year and work on some more projects. I’ve always been a fan of his steady flow and wordsmithing. This song is reminiscent for both of us and showcases some of the people that have influenced us over the years.”
