revolutionary hip-hop group A-Alikes), releases new single “Pedalin.”

renegade sound design and production duo, D://BOi (Digital Birth Of Imagination),whose
client list includes Cassidy, Swizz Beats, Gucci Mane, G-shock to name a few— is a rebellious
narrative as told by Eye2025*, grinding through Everyhood, USA on his deluxe 7-speed
Dahon, bringing light to the masses.
Following up his debut solo EP, Eye2025*Chapter1 - released shortly after return
from touring in Japan – a post-apocalyptic concept album and dystopian look into
the not so distant future, fused with electro and rock inspirations from a hip-hop
perspective. Eye2025*Chapter1 has been declared Hip-Hop’s answer to “Clockwork
Orange,” “1984” and any other comparable tale of a dark technologically-fueled tomorrow...
Painting a distinctive picture of what could very well be America’s next phase.
In an energy conscious world where bike riding is a hobby for some, Pedalin” reflects the
NYC culture of biking as a main form of transportation creating an introspective ode to bike
riders, enthusiasts, urban survivalists, hustlers, energy conservationists and the like.
“Pedalin, like most songs I create came from what I was actually doing at the time. I write a
lot of songs in my head while riding my bike, ironically though, I never wrote a song about
bike riding. After getting the beat from the homies - D://Boi, it just hit me – ‘Pedalin'
Pedalin' on my bike I be Pedalin….’ I ran with it…. With the EYE2025* project I'm putting
myself in that time but building off what's going on right now such as the energy crisis
where gas is only getting more expensive and alternatives to gas-powered transportation
are becoming more popular. In 2025* NYC will look like China with all the bike riding...
In my present-day-real-life I had a car and chose to get rid of it due to rising costs (& NYC
tickets). Instead, my bike is my main form of transportation. In NYC biking ain't just
for kids, everybody rides.... so Pedalin' is like the unofficial NYC bike rider anthem.”
Eye2025* illustrates the bleak yet beautiful world of 2025—a future just around the
corner, as “Pedalin” travels into the second interval - Eye2025*Chapter2, coming soon!
