About The Upside Eternal
Journey on. The Upside Eternal by ALERT312 is truly that – a musical and physical journey. Boogalu’s professed love for a decaying and corrupt Chicago in the album opener, “Local”, ignites a 47 minute pilgrimage beginning in the here and now and ending in the heavenly with the album closer, “Eternal”. Seamlessly weaving hip hop instrumentals with live instrumentation and sampled records with string quartets, The Upside Eternal is the duo’s most confident and mature work to date, all while keeping the ethnic and percussive core that has branded their music since the beginning. Knowing we’re all on a life long journey searching for something more, ALERT312 invites you to The Upside Eternal.
ALERT312 is the latest outfit of Chicago natives Boogalu & Moral One. Their musical roots cross all genres, from Ruben Blades to The Roots; Rich Mullins to Madlib, ALERT312 cut and paste their influences with intention to create an audible collage true to their city, faith and background.
ALERT312 are lovers of analogue – from drum heads to tambourines to oil paint. Moral One’s percussive, minimal and soulful musical focus frames Boogalu’s proverb-like lyrical approach and his creation of handcrafted visuals. Poetic and purposeful, ALERT312 desires to freely give genuine art that communicates on the deepest topics of life and faith. The duo are also founders of the Chicago based art and event label, HiFi Native.
