“The profoundness of these three projects is their homage to collaboration. As many moving parts as they have within them, they speak to the importance of bringing everyone together and leaving no one behind. I think these albums will feature in many stories — not only Instagram ones — this summer. These albums are to be shared and enjoyed just as the contributors have shared pieces of themselves and their craft on every track.” - Bubblegum Club
“Indeed, in spite of its all-black, all-queer parameters, the scope of genre and roof-raising production is equally impressive.
