Continuing 2019’s Dream Trails magic, Def-i teams up once again with veteran SoCal producer and artist Ariano on Deserted Oceans. Titled after a clever twist on where each artist hails from (Def-i from the deserts of New Mexico, Ariano from the beaches of the West Coast), the album is an elevated version of the artistry fans have come to expect from Def-i.

Deserted Oceans showcases Def-i in his prime – His lyrics are purposeful, and his wordplay nuanced, laden with intelligent metaphors and double entendre. His MC stylings are multi-faceted, flowing effortlessly from rapid-fire bars to a slowed-down cadence. His message speaks naked truth to power, underpinned with hope and positivity.

The production on the album is moody, raw and heavy with bass. Ariano manages to underscore his hard-hitting production with an ethereal quality that lays a solid foundation for Def-i to – as Ariano puts it – “rap his ass off.”

Deserted Oceans brings together coast-to-coast talent, with features from Atlanta rapper T.R.3 and visuals from Memphis-based visual artist, Nosey42, from New Mexico-based violinist Sage Cornelius and poet, writer and artist Tanaya Winder, to West Coast artists Ami Kim, Josh Dominguez, DJ LDontheCut, and of course, Ariano.
