GroovyTracks Premiere – Donwill and Tanya Morgan cohort Von Pea have teamed up for “Screens” featuring Quelle Chris. The track comes from Donwill’s forthcoming One Word No Space LP.
With Von Pea behind the production board and Donwill on the mic, it easily showcases the duo’s undeniable chemistry.
The newly signed HiPNOTT Records artist has been wanting to do a project with Von Pea for awhile.
“I have been talking about doing an album solely produced by Von Pea since before Moonlighting,” he tells GroovyTracks. “I don’t know why it took me this long. You know that meme of the dude walking with his girl and looking at another girl? That was me with Von’s beats.
“After starting and then scrapping the project, I came to my senses sometime last year and we finally finished it. It’s a great album. It’s one of the things that I’m most proud of to this day. This is my first full length solo album since Don Cusack in 2009 which is crazy because [Tonya Morgan’s] Brooklynati just had a 10 year anniversary, too. I promise my next album won’t take 10 years.”

It’s my birthday. If you wanted to get me a gift you can hit the link in my bio to pre-order this album that I’m dropping on July 19. It’s called One Word No Space and Von Pea produced everything except the bonus track which was produced by me. The artwork was done by Filthy Gomez of SOAP Goods Creative. The album features Quelle Chris, MC Paul Barman, Rob Cave, Theory Hazit, Che Grand, Ilyas, Von Pea, Brickbeats, Jermiside and Lil Carry On. There are a limited number of vinyls and I’m hoping it sells out. The link is in my bio.
Donwill adds, “This is an album about identity and it deals with how I see myself. It’s a pretty personal body of work, whereas Don Cusack focused on romantic relationships, this one focuses on my relationship with myself. It’s like my Twitter timeline set to music.”
One Word No Space is scheduled for a July 19 release.
