Cameroon-born Artist ArmstrongWW Revives Soul and Inspires Revolution In Debut EP ”Recovery”



The release of ArmstrongWW’s debut 7 track EP “Recovery” has been anticipated by recently released singles ‘Superstar You’ and ‘Run!’. This soul infused hip-hop project details the thoughts of a first generation African struggling to cope with pressures of the world around him. Usually when a heavy topic such as this is confronted, sorrow is the intended feeling the listener must understand. In ‘Recovery’, ArmstrongWW replaces sorrow with the hope that although this world slowly crumbles, there is a way to build a life from the rubble. 

Producers who contributed to the melodious personality of ‘Recovery’ include Domain Brown, Bowen Thi, and Armstrong himself who crafted the instrumentals for 3 out of 7 songs. In his usual fashion, ArmstrongWW also engineered the entire EP. from his one bedroom apartment using the popular DAW FL Studio. This DIY feeling can be felt throughout the entire collection as he had free reign to include harmonies which complimented his introspective lyricism. Collaboration is also a recurring theme with ‘Recovery’ as ArmstrongWW teams up with long time friend and visual artist Luz Castilla to record photos/videos which detail the stories being told in every song.
