|MH-236 S.E.V.A. - S.E.V.A.
Mumbles and Gone Beyond are proud to present a contemplative hip-hop/jazz album entitled, S.E.V.A. (Spirit Evolves Via Awareness). Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning selfless service. In traditional spiritual philosophy, selfless service performed with dedication, alertness, enthusiasm, and with the upliftment, progress, and harmony of mankind in mind is seen as a path to enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment. Mumbles and Gone Beyond have compiled this album with love, compassion, and selfless service as their keynote intentions. They are donating portions of their proceeds from the sales of this album to charitable causes.
|Blessedly blissed-out - The Stranger / Breathtaking - Aiding & Abetting / Highly recommended - Boomkat / An engrossing, natural ride - Splendid / Enough spiritual upliftment and inspiration to have underground hip-hop fans heading East in no time - Tiny Mix Tapes
|You know trip-hop? How about truly trippy hip-hop? S.E.V.A. uses eastern grooves, highly mystical concepts and some really inventive production to create a sound I've never heard before. I'm not sure it all comes together in the end (these folks try so many things, I think they get lost from time to time), but the effort is breathtaking. - Impact Press
