Fraser 94 well-named: a bright, airy collection. Favorite track: Roll the Dice (feat Chantel).

Good.To.Go I can't even count how many times this album has been on loop in the background while I'm alone, or with friends just hanging or even after the big climax of a party. It's perfect really in any setting.

Also as a fan of hitting the road and traveling this album is another perfect sound to compliment the scenery around you.

Love every song but of coarse first is def top because Cherub is apart of it. And GOVINDA!!! Favorite track: Sleepwalker (feat. Cherub & Govinda).

Seldom does a release come about with such an ability to pervade your dreams with it's beauteous progressions, but "Hit The Clouds Running" proves this to be true after just the first listen. The second full length album on Gravitas Recordings from Brooklyn based D.V.S* is actualized as a 10 track escapade through fertile grassy fields, arousing feelings of passion through guitar-driven harmony. The album manages to strike some ideal balance between downtempo and grooving, allowing the audience to choose the semblance they associate with it -- some may find serenity in the radiance of 'Blame Me', while others could prefer the stimulating power of 'Trapsody' or 'Roll The Dice'.

"Hit The Clouds Running" features an all-star cast of collaborations from across the country. The captivating 'Sleepwalker' spotlights the vocal talents of Cherub combined with Govinda's tender violin work, while Chantel exhibits an expert choral offering on 'Roll The Dice'. Closing the album, D.V.S* teams up with Psymbionic on 'Vault of Stars' for a heavy dose of bass with the deeper, melodic dubstep track.
