Paris releases "August" his eighth in a series of 12 monthly EPs. With the nation being shaken by Mike Brown's unfortunate death, Paris' August EP screams revolution. With samples of Civil Rights Activist/Pioneer Angela Davis, and revolutionary group "The Last Poets"  scattered throughout the project. Paris' eclectic approach to the current events make for a good listen. Dowsed with new verses, some singing melodies some screwed and manipulated--the "August EP' is perfect for a time such as now.   
 
Paris explains, "This EP was very difficult to make because I knew it was for this time in particular. Things are so heavy right now. I knew its not an EP that can be played all the time, but just for a particular time. Which is a hard pill for me to swallow because I like my music to be playable for any occasion. But this EP is for the marchers/protesters.  The new generation. I always wondered when the time would come that I would need to make music to help a cause and what it would sound like. It sounds like a soulful, experimental, jazz influenced, hip hop driven, indie cultivated, socially aware musician made it. Which I am, haha. I hope this can give a couple people strength, courage, and motivation whether they are marching now or marching 60 years from now. This EP is for them."
