Sherm & Stund Drop House EP ‘Activate Reality’

Sherm & Olivia Mancuso Recently Announced Panelists For Chicago Music Nexus Ft. Chicago Legends DJ Lady D, Dani Deahl, Terry Hunter + more

Sherm is back with a brand-new EP called “Activate Reality,” which came out June 21 on Hood Politics and features his good friend and popular Canadian artist Stund.

Sherm and Stund show off their studio skills on the first track of the EP, “Activate,” which has a lot of electric energy. Along with striking synth stabs and futuristic vocal samples, they make a rumbling groove that is hard to ignore.

Activate Reality EP is a mix of old and new styles that are meant to get people moving on the dance floor.” I’m excited to finally share these songs with the world on Hood Politics with my brother SHERM. Both of them have a lot of drive. It’s always nice to get a new Hood Politics book. – Stund

The last song on the EP is called “Activate Reality.” Its hypnotic melodies, cinematic synths, and ethereal, futuristic vocal line create a beautiful, dystopian experience for listeners.

The “Activate Reality” EP is a collection of all the strange things that happen in the world. There were fusions of styles and sounds that came together in such a unique way that these tracks are almost devoid of genre. These songs have a lot of energy on their own, but when they’re all together, it’s really something special. It’s been great to work with Hood Poli LEGEND Stund. I’m really proud of this EP. It’s also my 20th release on Hood Politics! The world’s best record label. – Sherm
