UP IN SMOKE
Updated: Apr 30, 2021
This week on MTD the team decided to get a feel of the 420 spirit the right way by heading to the “UP IN SMOKE” listening party featuring Pretoria based artists Prayforjoeyy and ILLROSE. Listening parties usually involve glitz, glam and a whole lot of liquor. This listening session however was very different in the sense that those in attendance were very laid back and ready to hear this new project whilst smoking away and keeping things relaxed.
ILLROSE describes the project up in smoke as a 420 playlist and judging from the atmosphere and reaction to the project that is exactly what it is in every sense of the word. The project consists of fourteen tracks which tap into the most ideal individuals who would follow their music “THE JUNKIES”. They say they “THEY DO IT FOR THE JUNKIES” who happen to be their growing following predominantly based in Pretoria as well as Cape town and the Eastern cape.
Junkies are described as people who stay trapping and don’t believe in what society deems normal they are creatives , artists and anybody else who enjoys creating amazing things. The description of their fan base is well reflected in the character of the artists who are solely focused on being themselves and creating regardless of what anybody else thinks of them.
Tune into this week’s podcast episode to find out more about these talented artists and make sure to download their new project “UP IN SMOKE” available on all platforms.
