Also, because we had a lot of interest from big name record label, sometime they would put us in the studio.

PD: What is your opinion about the whole situation in the world today? Are you happy?
Z: We are not very happy with all the hatred, fighting in the world, it makes us sad. That the reason we got back together, I Dimitri felt we had something to say. The whole album is a message album, that just the way I write. I really want to touch people, that why the ablum deals with so many topics. from Go Deep( how we don’t talk anymore to eachother), the song “Fear” because of this covid, song “Killing boys” boys without fathers, that me. Politicssong “Follow the leader” Follow the wrong leaders and song “Desert Flower” from a book about female genital mutilation in African countries. This is just some of the topic on the ablum, but write them with Love and compasion.
PD: What are your future plans about the band? Are you going to keep a steady line up or you will follow the idea of a project?
Z: Yes, keep the lineup, but when we play live. We plan on bring in other musicians. So we can have a full sound.
PD: Do you believe in God?
Z: We are all spiritual people, we where brought up in the church, so God is a big part of our lives. That why i felt God say, Dimitri it time to do your music.
PD: Are you angry with prejudiced people judging your music?
Z: I hope not, just hope people just listen to the lyrics and see that notice that we have a message. Like that old O’Jays song “Message in our Music”
PD: But we really like your work! The last words are yours…
Z: Love God, then love your brotha as yourself.
