The upcoming EP is no exception to that gripping aspect of Uché’s artistry; he poses a social commentary on the state of his generation and tells a story of his own struggles, while at the same time maintaining an electric energy that implores listeners to groove and sway to the beat. “My Generation,” is a musical biopic he poses a social commentary on the state of his generation and tells a story of his own struggles.
“‘My Generation’ speaks of the issues I have with my own generation. I meant it to be a musical vehicle that provides fiercely honest social commentary on my generation’s dulled social conscious, its fascination with living a life of ‘excess’ and the ever popular ‘YOLO’ spirit,” proclaims Uché.
Although his message is one of great social awareness and acts as a call to action for his generation, he manages to keep his music upbeat and beaming with energy. He utilizes ever-popular electronic dance music in a way that merges it with funk and pop and ultimately creates a new sub-genre, a phrase which he coined, “Funk” DM.
The new EP was written and performed by Uché and recorded at LuckyRun Studios and Z-Mixed Studios in Houston, Texas. The EP was produced by Eddie Ferguson for Walk One Productions and Zeke Listenbee for GoListen Productions, and the project was mixed and mastered by Romel “Nino” Villanueva and Jim Caruana, “Mob Luxuries” DrewG. Anthem remix curated by Courtney M. Anderson and remix produced by DrewG. Courtesy of 69ing Chipmunks. The project’s executive producer is Houston-based Tracy Matthews for The ME Company, LLC.
