Fresh Selects has been the home of many artists such as Mndsgn, Knxwledge, Low Leaf and more. Kenny Fresh, the label head, is consistently involved with the underground community; always seeking young talent, putting together “fresh” mixes, etc. He is a great guy and he helped me put together our first cassette release and the complications that came with it.
Last Monday, Fresh Selects started off their 2015 with a punch of beauty. Dolphin is a new name, but the talent and experience are there. Ten years of making music (fifty full-length albums), and he has not released a thing until his latest ballad called “Young Black Mind.” The multi-instrumentalist put out this seven-minute track (with the help of Fresh Selects) that has intricate structure, beautiful tones of strings and piano keys, a soft-spoken, emotional voice leading the anthemic story, and so many more layers that can be torn away for observance after every listen.
I am very excited to hear more from Dolphin. Enjoy:
