Following up Groove!, our good friend Jamil Rashad, aka Boulevards presents a look & listen to the Kevin Li for Time Travel Media VHS video for “Wear and Tear” a duet between Rashad & Laura Reed, featuring vibrant production from Rollergirl. Taking us on a leisurely stroll through Duke Gardens, the Boulevards sound retains that eternal sense of being the freshest phenom on the block no matter how old school the inspirations may be. Boulevards turns every park, sidewalk & street into an avenue of infinite intrigues where inspire awaits with each spirited step.

For “Wear & Tear” Jamil & Laura celebrates the spring season with a free-stepping sense of fancy where classic cadences feel as new the dawning of a rising sun signaling the start of the day. From fancy forestall & floral environments; Boulevards broadcasts the audio-visual action of an enthusiastic time as the duet between Rashad & Reed will instantly become of the most favorite things you may have seen or heard all season long. As with anything Jamil composes—everything new feels fresh out of a vintage shop, while all aspects of anachronism are elevated toward a holistic feeling of ecstasy & ineffable tranquility. Join us after the listen & viewing for our latest discussion with Boulevards’ Jamil Rashad.

Interested in hearing the inspirations behind your wonderful new single, “Wear and Tear”:

North Carolina funk artist Jamil Rashad aka Boulevards is back with his latest party funk jam “Wear and Tear” featuring the North Carolina Soul artist Laura Reed who has worked with artists like the Funkmaster George Clinton. “Wear and Tear” is a personal offering by Jamil Rashad talking about being fed up with love and pushing someone close to you away. The song is composed by producer Rollergirl who has worked Boulevards’ classic jams like “Got to Go” and “Move and Shout”. The song is a classic disco funk jams with bright synths, deep bass lines and catchy melodies. This is a song you can play at your pool parties.

Thoughts regarding making the video at Duke Gardens?

As far for duke gardens we wanted something that was beautiful had a lush green feeling that represents North Carolina. Also when you think of a garden or flowers you think of growth. Love grows and in life we grow.

Insights on what’s next for Boulevards?

As far as what’s next for Boulevards, I’m working on new jams currently in the studio.

Stay tuned for more coming soon from Jamil Rashad & Boulevards.
