Lightning 100 presents Rev’s DJ Pick of the week with the track “Deja Vu” by Abraham Alexander feat. Mavis Staples. Abraham recently released his debut album Sea/Sons that dives into his family’s past. On the album, Alexander shares his perspective as the son of Nigerian immigrants in Greece and the family’s journey to America. Throughout the track listing, Sea/Sons incorporates many different genres, ranging from classic R&B to gospel. “Deja Vu” stands out to Rev because it shows the indie alternative side of the album.
Abraham Alexander feels like it’s his mission as an artist to share important messages with the world, and he uses “Deja Vu” to accomplish that. “Deja Vu” is inspired by Kalief Browder, who was imprisoned without trial. Abraham felt that this story should be shared, and uses his music to bring these important issues to light. Throughout the track, electric rhythms and soulful vocals hook your attention right away. “Deja Vu” is an empowering song that would be perfect to share with your friends.
