The two tracks hear a frustrated Elia let off steam about the lack of recognition and support he receives from his home city, while also voicing his opinion about recent global affairs.
For instance, the song ‘Blue‘ makes reference to the burning Notre-Dame cathedral and the Sudan crisis which saw social media users change their profile picture to blue in order to help raise awareness in solidarity with protesters.
The second track ‘Kami‘ (which means ‘spirit‘) offers a vivid display of Daniel Elia’s elite lyricism and effortless ability to switch between flows using various tone changes.

Accompanying the release of this double single, Elia also took to social media to detail the creative approach behind his release.
“The concept is about the duality and the difference in delivering almost the same message but in two different ways,” he said.
“Blue – Is a soulful chant with lyrics that are conscious and a tribute to Sudan.”
“Kami – Is aggressive with an ignorant approach to dealing with the same perspective.”
With Daniel Elia’s return looking as though he’s back better and stronger than ever, TLF is highly anticipating his upcoming project. There’s no doubt it’s bound to be jam-packed with conscious lyricism and complex vocal executions. Elia is in his own lane.
