“LAL is an intersection between idea, place, and people, where we stand for moment and discuss the kind of world we will create. The conversation eventually gives ways to dance, which, in turn, gives way to conversation, which again, makes room for dance. We will win. There’s no doubt” D.O.

The result of three years of studio work, Find Safety combines a myriad of influences, from Fela Kuti and Massive Attack, to Pete Rock and Detroit Techno. Lyrically, the album is informed by LAL’s community shows at its west end Toronto performance space, Unit 2, as well as Kazi and Murray's passionate ongoing support of social justice causes and art projects, with an emphasis on Queer and/or BIPOC issues. The album overall addresses a need to create safer spaces for themselves and their friends, and musically is a masterful blend of synth and sample-based minimalism. Or as they prefer to call it, 4 a.m. music.

Lee Reed:
LEE REED is a respected veteran of the Canadian Indie HipHop scene. For over 20 years he's been stomping stages and studios, spewing his unique brand of fiery, anti-capitalist rant-hop. From mouthpiece for the legendary punk-hop greats Warsawpack, and throughout his solo work that followed, Reed’s musical legacy remains committed to the fight for a better world; voicing intersectional anti-oppressive politics through HipHop; and soundtracking and signal-boosting the efforts of communities and organizers struggling on the frontline for social and environmental justice. His latest album, 2015’s anti-colonial/anti-nationalist anthem “The Butcher The Banker The Bitumen Tanker” spent 14 weeks on the national campus & community radio Top-10 charts, ending the year as Canada's #6 HipHop album.
