Even though we are inching towards the dead heat of summer, it may not have officially started just yet. However, now that the mystical Chicago artist theMIND has opened the gates to his long awaited Summer Camp, may we be able to say it is so.
At 11 tracks, theMIND’s latest masterpiece is just that, flowing effortlessly like tubing down a lazy river, yet is filled to the edges of the shore with a comforting, unwavering warmth that is as carefree as it’s title may suggest. From the enigmatic, synth buzzing R&B morsels of “Pale Rose,” to the otherworldly, dream focused musings of “Mercury Rising,” and down to the softly energetic aromas of the Donnie Trumpet, Towkio, and Sean Deaux drenched “Purple Fox Fur,” theMIND exercises his multi-dimensional musical gifts into a host of purely positive vibrations that reach endlessly, touching souls like a child’s fond memories of, well, Summer Camp.
Take a listen to Summer Camp below featuring Michael Anthony, Donnie Trumpet, Towkio, Sean Deaux, and production from THEMpeople, Knox Fortune, Carter Lang, and Beatmachinearon.
