Ascension EP marks the second release of Long Beach based Dank Radio founder/radio host/resident disc jokey, Nativity, and the fifth release from the Dank Radio collective.
"Ascension" continues the journey into the upper levels of the lucid dream state. When setting your sights upon the highest "Zenith" one begins to understand that beyond the stars and heavens is pure love. With assistance from fellow Dank Radio light warrior, Neon Phoenix, U will come to know the path in which you must travel. "Be Fast" and steady while you soar through your dreams. Be confident and present in the moment of flight. For when you reach the upper realms the "Cherubim" will greet you. Do not be alarmed. This is all apart of your journey…

Special Thanks: To all the lovely ladies who provided me with inspiration during the late late nights/early early morning hermit periods. I said we'd kick it after this release is done and we will ;)
Rest In Peace Markus Manley. I never got to say good bye my friend. Thank you for everything you taught me about building community in the arts/music scene. Long Beach misses you. We'll do our absolute best to continue the growth and momentum of what you've built. I'll see you in the dream state and/or the next reincarnation.
