Aqeel Aadam and Sterling Duns meditate on personal growth with new single “Learn to Fall”
Philly’s Aqeel Aadam, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who formerly performed as Qubicity, just dropped a new single called “Learn to Fall” with Sterling Duns of Key faves Hardwork Movement.
The track features surprisingly clear flows that contrast distorted, raspy vocals, as well as a tasteful use of autotune. With trap inspired snares and heavy bass, and synth and vocals that are more EDM, they rap lyrics about dealing with negative emotions in order grow as a person with lyrics like “I think I’ve got to learn how to fall / I’m starting to embrace the pain / Instead of standing in my way.”
Check out the song below; it’s the title track to a Aadam’s new project coming out later this year as the inaugural release on What We Pay Attention To, Duns’ new record label and learning community we expect to be hearing a lot more from in the future.
