Absent from our front page since dropping off reader-acclaimed EP inclusion You Go Slavia in October of last year, Planet Asia returns to kick off his 2014 with Light Beams, a loosie pulled from the vault in honor of Black History Month. Though this joint dates back to 2011, it doesn’t show any signs of age—on the contrary, it sounds as fresh as the day it was recorded. Here, beatsmith DirtyDiggs‘s deft flip of The 5th Dimension’s Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In sets the mood as Planet Asia commits what Das Racist might call “metaphysical spiritual lyrical murder.” If this unreleased jam’s whet your appetite for more, stay tuned; the Fresno representative doesn’t currently have any forthcoming projects on the agenda, but we in the Booth will keep you posted as further details emerge.
