Arise Roots – “Dangerous” (feat. Matthew Liufau of Seedless)
Arise Roots new album was recorded at Imperial Sound Recording Studio, engineered and mastered by E.N Young. The majority of the albums songs deal with the concept of Love & War, hence the title, representing a special meaning to the group.
The group shares: “When it comes to our thoughts on ‘war’ we are not limiting the idea to country vs. country, but everything from class warfare, to life’s daily struggles, both external and internal. The concept of love is universal and needs no explanation as it is something that affects every person with air in their lungs!”
The album features 5 guest appearances that include: Stephen Newland from Rootz Underground on “What A Shame”, Dan Kelly of Fortunate Youth on “Lost in your Ocean”, E.N Young of Tribal Seeds on “A Little More” Hirie & the aforementioned Matthew Liufau of Seedless on this weeks feature, “Dangerous”.
According to our own David Garcia, Arise Roots have begun filming a couple more full production music videos in different locations throughout southern California for the songs, “Love You Right” as well as “Dangerous” featuring Matthew Liufau of Seedless.
Here’s what David Garcia had to say about the production of the song “Dangerous”: “I was lucky enough to be invited into Imperial Sound Recording Studio as the band was recording ‘Dangerous.’ Being one of the first to hear the band’s newest creation and witness E.N Young’s professionalism in the studio first hand was an amazing experience. Even more impressive was when Matt of Seedless showed up to record his verse. He showed up with his laptop just as everyone had taken a break to eat lunch and 15 minutes later, his verse was written and coming to life in the vocal booth!”
