L4LM Exclusive Premiere: ‘Stand Beside Yourself’ by Congo Sanchez (Drummer of Thievery Corporation)

first_imgCongo Sanchez is the alias of Thievery Corporation drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Franca. Congo, alongside the bandmates of his self-titled project, Haile Supreme and Flex Matthews, will release their debut album, Dealin With This later this month. L4LM is excited to debut a track from the album, “Stand Beside Yourself.”Since the inception of the collective, Haile Supreme, Flex Matthews, and Congo Sanchez have been writing together, collaborating on new ideas, and reworking old sketches into fruition. “Stand Beside Yourself” is a brand new collaboration that features a fresh take on rhythm, paying homage to the bands love for dub style music. Haile’s soaring vocal depicts a message of humility and understanding. It is a humble response to the various facets of our world that continue to condemn others who come from a different culture or belief system.The song is about a moment outside of thyself, a pure moment where all is seen for its true purpose not monetary or political value. Special Guest Ras Nebyu continues with a verse describing his process for which he achieves these moments in his own life, and the struggle that sometimes arises when he tries to stand beside his-self. Polished off with a blend of live and electronic sounds, the moments created musically in this track are equally as euphoric as that moment when you can truly remove and reflect.Check out Congo Sanchez’s upcoming tour schedule below:last_img
