“Lighters” is a song filled with imagery and symbolism. “Lighters focuses on the idea that everyone is being denied the full truth in this world and you have to find your own path to the truth. Once you find it people need to stand in unity for that truth. Someone may automatically think of this song as a protest song to combat the current political landscape, but in reality it is a call to action for unity and peace as dictated by the chorus and cover art. Like when in America people unite under this nations flags in response to a crisis situation, put your lighters up is a metaphor for the raising of the flag while being lied to is this crisis we face as a nation. Producer Da Hermit says, “Lighters is not a political song. It focuses on the thought that everyone is a liar in this world and you have to find your own path to the truth. Once you do and you’re tired of all the lies people need to unite”
Da Hermit a veteran in the music industry was the former DJ of the band Inolence, now currently a working as a fulltime producer / mix engineer. Changing Lanes is the follow up album to his 2005 un/released Droppin’ In On Them. Dem One was raised in San Jose, California and has been a staple in the San Jose hip-hop scene for over twenty years. Bambu was raised in the Watts district of Los Angeles, as a young boy he experienced a life that other rappers have glorified, but rarely experienced.
“Da Hermit trades his typically dark soundscapes for an upbeat, melodic number, couching Dem One’s measured backpack witticisms and Bambu’s visual second verse to great effect.” – David Ma (Wax Poetics, Ego Trip, Nerdtorious)
“A refreshing blast of tru school socially conscious realness.” – M-SMOOTH (90.1 KZSU Stanford Urban Inner City Experience)
“Producer Da Hermit teams up with Bambu and Dem One for his latest single “Lighters” which is one of those hip-hop tracks that transcends time: packing the punch of a 90’s track while still delivering the sound of 2015 indie hip-hop.” – Billy Jam (HipHop Slam, WFMU)
