A couple months ago Blind I was in the house to witness the best performance from our good friends Dane & Anna (Sonnymoon) we had seen to that date. We know they will out do that tonight. There are no words to truly describe being able to witness the growth of emerging artists in the game let alone ones you become good friends with. Sonnymoon continues to impress crowds every where they play & San Jose get’s dumb fanboy on em when they come into town. Throw in the city’s own B.Lewis who also has been shaking and moving like no other as well. The young producer’s signature sound is reaching a multitude of fans each day & the sky is the limit for him. Tonight we get to see both in action once again @ the famous LIVE @ PAGODA music series. UnGrammar for the win 1nce again!

A few of our Blind I favorites, Jonti & Sonnymoon, are embarking on a magical quest to bless a few more minds with their music. To help get the word out, they linked up with the good homie Kenny Fresh to drop The ? Mix, a collection of joints from both Sonnymoon and Jonti, with guest spots from Devonwho, Knxwledge, MNDSGN, and B. Lewis. Basically the cold mogs. Listen to it here and then hit the jump to see where you can catch Sonnymoon & Jonti this summer. Boom!

As if anyone needed another reason to love Sonnymoon. Their new self-titled album is insane. If you don’t have it, do yourself a favor and go buy it NOW. Here is some footage from a recent performance in San Fransisco. It was shot beautifully and reflects all of the reasons why they deserve every bit of shine coming their way. Enjoy.
The homies release visuals to “Wild Rumpus” from their forthcoming album due to be out May 22nd on Plug Research, which you can pre order NOW!
When Sonnymoon dropped Golden Age, we were all blown away by their rendition of Drake’s “HoustonAtlantaVegas.” Blind I comrade Waajeed was just as impressed by the duo and inspired to do this remix of the track we all love so much. Waajeed’s version is and upbeat and it gives the song a party vibe. Sonnymoon is currently touring and I got a chance to catch up with them at Santos Party House in NYC. They performed some music from their new album and trust me when I say their fans definitely have a lot to look forward to. Hopefully in the future Waajeed and Sonnymoon will get in the studio together.
Seeing that the duo doesn’t need a third leg producer, the only way I could work with them was do a remix. We connected, they sent the vocals, and the rest is history… or at least history in the making.
@sonnymoon I’d love to work with you guys more in the future. Mucho respect. Until then, check this bling47 exclusive gem. They have new material dropping this spring and currently on tour.
Check Plug Research for the dates.

Words cannot express the way we feel about this show happening this Saturday. Dane & Anna are more than ever on a path to greater things & the fact that they make sure we are part of the ride is an honor & blessing. That being said… You are fuckin trippin’ if you miss this show. Travel arrangements may need to be required. Trill spit tho. This is bout to be in the words of Barney Stinson… “Legen…wait for it… & I hope you are not lactose intolerant becuase this last word is da(i)ry!” Sonnymoon will be blessing the stage that has held Bilal, Electric Wire Hustle, J*Davey, Blu, Little Dragon, Idle Warship & countless others. The timing is meant to be. Your being in the place to be is apparent. Thank you for being a part of it.
