A TUNED UP EXCLUSIVE: NEW LANGUAGE – HOUSE OF CARDS

If you are a regular follower of Tuned Up or of myself then you know that music is my world. I eat, sleep, and breathe music. It’s what I know.

Premiere: Trippin’ into a new era with EUVOIA

I don't recall the exact date, but I remember one day receiving a random text message from Jared Condon at work. In the text was a link to a Dropbox audio file.
