Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the first single from Philly rapper, producer, and mixtape master Gilbere Forte’s upcoming LP, 87 Dreams. It’s entitled “1st Floor,” and it samples one of the best tracks from one of the best albums of the year by SIC faves Freelance Whales. Add the fact it’s produced by Aislyn of Passion Pit, and we have something certifiably exciting on our hands.
And his momentum is indeed gaining steam. This February, in conjunction with streetwear brand Black Scale, Gilbere solidified his budding success by producing the mixtape sampler Gilbere Forte is BLVCK which cemented him as one of the strong new voices not to be ignored.
Now, Gilbere is promising to “change lives, moods, and vibes,” which should be easy to do if all his work is as awesome as this first taste.
He’s given it to us for free – do not hesitate to download below!
