Illustrate and Salty Beats Have a Message of Hope On New Single 'Sam Witwicki'

Jun 10 2024

Veteran emcee Illustrate and producer Salty Beats combine their gifts on the new record Sam Witwicki, releasing to digital streaming platforms on June 7, 2024.

Faith comes from what is heard. As believers in the death and resurrection of Christ, we have been charged to ensure that the world knows about the gift of salvation. Not just those within arms-reach, but the good news is meant to go to the ends of the earth. We are all messengers on a mission. The battle is raging and the fate of mankind rests in the balance between the Light and the darkness. No sacrifice, no victory.

“We are messengers of hope, not guardians of salvation.” - Illustrate

Connecting from Memphis (Illustrate) to Los Angeles (Salty Beats), the duo, along with guest artists DJ Stibs, Codak, and Jeremiah Dirt, embrace the message of the Gospel that transcends space to bring hope and truth. The question for listeners is simple, will you turn a blind eye or be transformed into a new creation?

With a sonic feel that is reminiscent of classic hip hop records such as “Deep Cover,” Sam Witwicki contains all of the elements that true genre heads are certain to connect with.

Whether it is the grimy feel of underground boom bap thanks to Salty Beats; the utilization of samples and record cuts provided by DJ Stibs; or the b-boy flows that glide effortlessly from the lips of true lyricists in the forms of Illustrate, Codak, and Jeremiah Dirt, the entire record is a demonstration of masters in total control of their craft.

Sam Witwicki is more than a standalone single as it is setting the stage for a new Illustrate album that is scheduled to release later this summer.
