Saint Soldier releases new album

Abbotsford hip hop artist presents Duality

Hip hop artist Saint Soldier of Abbotsford has announced the release of his new album, Duality.

The album, his second, was more than two years in the making and was released worldwide on July 15.

Saint Soldier (whose real name is Amrit Saggu) teamed up with producer DJ Hark for the new album.

“The effort behind this album is to provide the listener an inward contemplative journey while listening to and enjoying the music,” Saggu said.

“The concept of Duality is discussed in all spiritual scriptures – the idea of separation between the creator and the creation.”

Duality offers a diverse range of songs that include deep, meaningful storytelling pieces.

The first single, A Stray, was heavily circulated across major television and print media, and addressed the issue of gang violence in Abbotsford.

The second single of the album, Namaste, has a different vibe, promoting peace, love and oneness while backed by tropical house beats.

Music videos for both of these singles are available on YouTube and also on the artist’s website.

Duality includes other international recording artists such as Toronto native Humble: The Poet, who provides a verse on the track titled Mind Over Matter.

The album also gets a helping hand from Saint’s fellow hip hop artist Noyz, who is featured on Medicine.

Johnny Jang provides the chorus on the first track of the album titled School of Life.

Most of the tracks were produced by DJ Hark, with music and mixing by Mani D, DJ Reminisce, and Arnold Dogelis.

Physical copies of the album are available for purchase online at saintsoldiermusic.com. The digital streaming release of the album is expected this month.
