Ten years of friendship and a love of music has translated into a new project by Awaxx and Ariano. Together, they bring you, Alive. This is not the first collaboration by both artists, but it is without a doubt their best effort to date.
Awaxx has been releasing material for years with consistency and a high level of presentation. On Alive, he paints his vocals over a canvas of cross-genre production with poetry and heartfelt words, delivered with a sense of urgency and the experience of a life lived to the fullest.
Ariano is no stranger to the California Hip-Hop scene, always evolving since his days of laying hooks with groups like The Visionaries, and artists like Snoop Dogg and Crooked I. Ariano has since delivered his sound to the world, and has laid a bass-heavy and raw, but polished production on, Alive.
The 12 track LP allows you to get to know Awaxx on a more personal note, while Ariano continues to show his range on both production and hook duties. The features on the project range from Living Legends own Scarub, to Long Beach veteran Philieano, to D.A.The INM, T.R.3, Mr. Crowley, Openmine, January High, Father Poet, Castor Pollux, and Josh Dominguez, with Ian “ENS” Silverman on guitar. Each feature add their own artistry help forge a sense of cohesiveness to the ambitious project. Awaxx has arrived with a new sound with Ariano providing the soundtrack. Welcome to Alive.
