Omerta-Da-What

US online Da-What run a series “Five Finger Discount” where they ask artists to highlight five of their tracks or videos for special mention, the story behind them and why they currently have a specific relevance and importance to them.

In the latest edition just published, they spoke with Constant Deviants. The group will release a new concept album “Omerta” on June 28th, and reveal the linkage between the new album and last year’s “Avant Garde”, specifically the role their tour of Switzerland played in how they were devised. They also speak more on the deliberate differences in style of production between the two albums and provide more background into how last year’s single “Standards” came to be remixed by The Beatminerz.

All the track streams and videos they selected are included in the feature which can be read HERE
