Oakland based producer Angel Rubio-Hale aka ONHELL returns with his latest effort Linden. Composed over the course of the past two years, these four tracks capture the essence of his experiences living and making music in Oakland.
The unifying theme on the release is about enjoying life and each track is ultimately inspired by making the most of being alive by exploring the different facets of our existence. A prime example is the track “HIV+” created while contemplating his mortality upon receiving a false positive result from an HIV test. Linden successfully conjoins where ONHELL has been musically while also providing a glimpse of where he’s going. It’s this merging of his past with his future right here in the present that makes listening to this EP so exhilarating.
