FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

(WORLDWIDE / UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: WASHINGTON D.C.-MARYLAND-VIRGINIA METROPOLITAN AREA) Probably one of the most eccentric soul-inspired mixtapes ever made, Aisha Karimah taps into the unchartered realms of the subconscious mind. REM State, inspired by the Rapid Eye Movement stage of sleep, is a crate digger’s audio interpretation of what scientists believe to be the most active and creative phase of the brain’s function. Infused with the perfect selections of soul-inspired music, REM State: DJ Set Volume IV is a futuristic immersion of mind, music, and soul – for those who feign music ‘on some other level’.

The REM State: DJ Set Volume IV mixtape is an unbelievable mind-trippin’ listening experience.
According to the mixtape creator and curator, Aisha Karimah, “REM State: DJ Set Volume IV definitely contains ‘left-field’ music and is a contrast from what the commercially-prone listening ear is accustomed to but I wanted to show how the experimentation of soul music has time traveled throughout the years into modern day sub-genres. I feature the works of legendary self-proclaimed blues/soul artists like Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Mayfield, and Earth Wind and Fire whose willingness to “stretch the envelope” helped to usher in Rock music, Psychedelic Soul and Rhythm & Blues music. Hip-hop is also a byproduct of soul and you have authentic hip-hop artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Wu Tang Clan who have experimented with abstract beats and now Trip-Hop/Down Beat/Down Tempo, are byproducts of Hip Hop music -- which is evident in the sounds of Massive Attack, Flying Lotus, The Clonious, and Dimlite. Even Neo-Soul, a relatively new offspring of Classic Soul music is taking a new turn. The rebellious artistic natures of pioneering neo-soul artists Erykah Badu, Bilal, Amel Larrieux, and Les Nubians have allowed international Eclectic/Experimental Soul artists like Zap Mama, Little Dragon, and Hiatus Kaiyote to take flight.”

Featured artists on the REM State: DJ Set Volume IV mixtape include: Bilal, Curtis Mayfield, Little Dragon, Wu Tang, Les Nubian, Earth Wind and Fire, Amel Larrieux, Massive Attack, Zap Mama, The Clonious, Dimlite & The Slapped Eyeballers, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jimi Hendrix, A Tribe Called Quest, Redman, Erykah Badu, and Flying Lotus.

REM State: DJ Set Volume IV is now available for free streaming and limited downloading at: https://soundcloud.com/aishakarimah/rem-state-dj-set-volume-four-mixtape
