AKLOCK New Album S7VN + “Easy” Music Video Shoot

S7VN-COVER

Aklock’s S7VN Released On July 11th 2015

Aklock S7VN

Aklock’s continually evolving skills as a lyricist and DJ show through on his new album S7VN.

Aklock, a native to Loveland/Fort Collins area, has toured around the US numerous times with artists such as: Moka Only of Swollen Members, Ceschi Ramos, Open Mike Eagle, Factor, Chi Chi’s, three US tours with the Chicharones, multiple festivals at Big Sky Resort, and he was on the Vans Warped Tour Bring It Back Hip Hop stage for 45 days.

He has worked with Maulskull on previous releases including Black Mask, but linked up with Jaywok from NY on S7VN.

Aklock told Kind Dub “S7VN signifies the number 7 just that it’s known as a divine number. In numerology, it’s known as the number of truth. I thought that was really cool. Also I set the artwork up to be an upside down triangle. Kind of like anti all seeing eye. Mostly this album is about finding truth in my life, trying to be a better person, learning to be mindful of who i am and what I have to thankful for. Understanding that my art doesn’t have to be depressing to be good. On lighter levels just about having fun with music. Letting go of anything I may have let hold me back with my writing. Like i can’t say this because (laughs) I just put down what feels good at the time and try to enjoy the process more.”

All beats produced by Jason Grant (Jaywok)
All lyrics written by Alex Knox (Aklock)
All scratches by Alex Knox and DJ Kosmo (Track 7 Bar Ballad)
Recorded and Mixed by Alex Knox
Mastered by Alex Knox
Artwork by Alex Knox

Aklock asked Kind Dub to film his music video for “Easy” from S7VN, and we are really excited how it’s going to turn out! Stay updated with Aklock on Facebook and keep an eye out for the music video dropping soon!
