Stream enemies of progress here
Bronx native DJ, producer and songwriter Joey LaBeija recently released the enemies of progress EP along with lead single and music video “unavailable” via Mad Decent.
On enemies of progress, the Bronx-born, Puerto Rican-American multidisciplinary waxes brutally honest of a post-breakup world. Drawing carefully from the diverse pallet of his sonic influences, ranging from his punk rock roots, emotive electropop greats such as Robyn and Roísín Murphy, an R&B upbringing and affinity for global rhythms, LaBeija clearly defines his boundaries, needs, issues, and kinks through warped vocals and a pop-tinted experimental electronic lens.
As raw and honest as ever, tracks like “move on” and “onethatiwant” dive deep into the pains and pleasures that come along with modern, fleeting love. Behind his twisted beats and otherworldly pitched vocals on lead single “unavailable” are the tongue in cheek lyrics that exemplify LaBeija’s infectious sense of humor and relatability, “enemy of progress” where he is quick to shift the blame, and being blatantly upfront and uncensored with his “cuffin szn” fling about his intentions to thot it up and pop his pussy in the club once the weather warms up.
