Hayk – Demand Truth (prod. Paul Cantor) [Powerful Track About Turkish Riots]
It’s hard to find music with a meaning now-a-days. Demand Truth by Hayk offsets my theory. Here’s a powerful track about the riots occurring in Turkey right now. The riots started over the proposed development of a shopping plaza on the sacred grounds of Taksim Square. What started as a peaceful demonstration led to violent and brutal opposition by the police force. The disheartening point of all of this is the media coverage has been limited, with the government turning a blind eye.
Hayk has been proving himself week after week with solid releases. Demand Truth holds dear to his heart because he was born just outside of where these riots are happening right now. Paul Cantor handled the production on this doing an tremendous job with live, tracked instrumentation. Paul is the contributing writer for Billboard, Vibe, XXL, Complex, and many more. And his production credits include everyone from Curren$y to Wu-Tang Clan. Spread this message and bring this to the attention of the mainstream media!
