    The days of simply using some tight hip hop loops is something of the past for most serious artists in the genre, most are branching out. But few branch out as far as J.Smo and collaborative crew have done here.” Buddy Nelson, Jamsphere

    The fusion of genres in this one is undeniably fresh, and it works – experimentation or a desire to be original have not taken the place of great music, they have driven it towards you with great personality and style.” via Stereo Stickman

J.Smo of BUNKS and Brother Octopus of Oak Apple Records team up for this Tennessee X Edmonton collaboration titled "Swim".

What is this song about? Swimming until the waters dry up, rolling until the wheels fall off, and making the most out of the experiences life's stream flows into your current.

lyrics

chilling like a villain deep under the sea,
a pisces, lost in my thoughts is where you'll find me,
i'm going with the current, fins flowing along,
when i heard brother octopus playing this song,
my gills tingled, so i changed course,
swerving through funky beats is my favorite sport,
back to it, we going to do it,
its going to take a lot of work, we get through it,
in the belly of the beast, are we stupid?
fell in love with this music, where's cupid?
selling fake dreams to lost students,
the lesson gets scrambled, no prudence,
so with 8 fists of fury watch the Oct in the jury like the spice in our curry,
cause the spice in our curry is hot,
watch the apples from this oak tree drop,
you are rocking with the kings of the crop,
now jump, now bounce,
(not tell 'em what you're going to do).

swim to the right, swim to the left,
swim to the surface, swim for the depths,
swim through the waves, do tricks off the crest,
this ocean is yours so put your limits to the test.

meanwhile, above the dirt,
the humans going crazy destroying planet earth,
look at all this garbage in my main stream,
it keeps piling up, diluting all my day dreams,
and lately I'm seeing some strange things,
specifically speaking on mutated species,
my mind wonders, I form my own schema,
what is all this debris labeled Fukushima?!
my cousin was cute but now she's a demon,
they say it's in the water, I'm starting to believe 'em,
...but the current moves forth,
running full blast jumping blindly off the porch,
we'll make our decisions when faced with the fork,
pop the cork, i'm feeling bubbly,
trying to forget the idiocracy of you dummies,
pour me another, glass in the air,
raise up your fist, show me you care,
roll up that good, put smoke in the wind,
now everybody let go, jump in, and swim.

swim to the right, swim to the left,
swim to the surface, swim for the depths,
swim through the waves, do tricks off the crest,
this ocean is yours so put your limits to the test.
