Molina - We Are Free (feat. Luz Ysela)



Molina is back!

When I first heard Molina, a year or so ago, he was just a kid making some remixes and just trying to get his name out there.

With this release, "We are free", he has done just that. This track cements his status as a force to be reckoned with and a name that is synonymous with quality and talent.



Expect big things from Molina over the next few years. He's gonna be everywhere.

Ash Walker



This is the perfect sound track to the rainy weather we've been having on the east coast.

In his own words...

"Describing his current sound as trip-hop with an abstract twist, Ash incorporates an intoxicatingly heavy dub reggae bottom end with samples of original material – all firmly rooted in jazz harmony."

Check it out!!
