DOWLOAD: Stik Figa & D/WILL – Alive & Well EP
As a follow up to their previous EP, HelloGoodbye, Stik Figa & D/WILL bring us their latest project, Alive & Well. With their last release being themed as a suicide note to Stik Figa’s son, Alive and Well provides a much different perspective on life, yet equally thought provoking. The EP is filled with substantial lyrics, and serving as a true concept-related project, each song is significant to the overall message: Stik Figa & D/WILL are alive and well. Entirely produced by D/WILL, the beats on the EP show expansive variety, equipped with unique flips on soul samples and steady loops as a soundtrack to Stik Figa’s thoughts. “Alive and Well picks up right where the last one left off,” says D/WILL, continuing, “then it leads into a blast of soulful feel goodness!”
The project leads off with “Alive“, a song with chronological rhymes of Stik Figa’s own birth, followed by the birth of his son. As the album continues, Stik Figa keeps it personal, addressing everything from his native Topeka, Kansas in “Be Like That“, to his female encounters in “Fone Tag“. “I’m very well-rounded for being a square,” says Stik Figa on his versatility as a lyricist and songwriter. While he demonstrates his ability to rhyme about anything and everything, D/WILL demonstrates similar dynamics on the boards, providing an array of mood-altering beats. The combination brings listeners deep into the hearts of both Stik Figa & D/WILL.
Stik Figa will also be releasing a free EP with Oddisee, in the upcoming months.
