Last night, November 10th, Hip Hop recording artist Gilles held a laid back, down south listening party for his debut album Super.. Held at Blue Room Studio (500 Bishop St NW, Atlanta GA 30318) Gilles (pronounced jills) treated guest who attended with Chicken and Beer sponsored by Pop-Eyes and Miller Lite. During the interview, Gilles got to tell more about himself as each track played all while being interviewed during the listening session by AB+L Day 1 Radio’s Maurice Garland, Branden Peters, and Nadine Graham. On the album it features 12 tracks and bonus 2 track that many Hip Hop heads and music loves will truly love. Even though born in Brooklyn, Gilles shows that growing up in GA, the south’s laid back feel of the 90’s, mixed with club bangers from such artists as Project Pat and 3 Six Mafia, has a strong influence of the project Gilles created for today’s listeners. If you don’t know about Gilles, you soon will as this is an album, personally to me, created for getting ready to hit the club, reflecting on life and enjoying long ride through the city lights.
Want to see Gilles live in action and hear is mixtape when it releases? Gilles will be holding “very live” album release party that will be a festive celebration that will include Gilles performing the “Super.” album with the incredibly talented “Band of Brothers”. This experience will be a first listen for his young professional, hip hop loving, undergraduate and advanced degree achieving fan base to hear the album for the first time. This event will feature guest dj’s Jeremy Avalon, Mikkoh and DDecoteau, a special art exhibit by Jermaine Clark and a gaming lounge courtesy of Konsole Kingz, the leaders in urban gaming internationally. Gilles has secured a promotional clothing partnership for “Super.” with Messrs. R/R clothing, an American menswear line that offers functionally tailored menswear and accessories. Pieces from that collaboration will be available for purchase at the Pop-Up Shop at this event. The evening will be hosted by the nationally syndicated radio personality Angela Yee at Studio 7 (393 Marietta St, Atlanta GA 30313) on Friday, November 14th.
