The last time we heard from the kings of good vibes ACADEMY it was about 9 months ago when they dropped their sophomore EP The Beat Generation. While The Beat Generation was a phenomenal seven track EP, none of that collective project can begin to touch the masterpiece that is Panoramic. The Los Angeles based duo teamed up with Jackson Breit for a record that has all the vibes of Summer and all the feels of a radio hit. Stay tuned as ACADEMY and Jackson are hitting the road this Spring with William Bolton and Dylan Reese.

This little ditty is a spin on the Temptations timeless song ‘My Girl‘ and is equally as addicting as their previous reggae cover of Biggie’s Juicy. My Girl, which was concocted by John That features good friend of ACADEMY and unknown to most, emcee Terrye who laid down some well written bars that fit the vibe of this song perfectly.

Now that they are about to hit the road on a Fall tour they teamed up with the other half of the billing, Matt Easton for a very dope track enlisted Can’t Teach.

Summer 2015 is officially here and while the weather has been on point, there has been something missing. With the likes of Radical Something, Slightly Stoopid, Cris Cab and others relatively quiet as of late, the world has been in need of some new music to add that extra flavor of good vibes to these warm summer days.

Have no fear, ACADEMY‘s latest masterpiece, a seven track Extended Play is here. The Beat Generation, following suit with their debut EP ‘Moving Methods‘, provides that magical blend of Hip Hop, Reggae, Pop and Alternative for a sound that you’ll have the windows down and volume turned all the way up on you ride to the beach. Good vibes come pouring through your speakers with songs like ‘Hippy Girl‘, ‘Outta State‘, ‘High Tide‘ and ‘We Ain’t Never‘, but you’ll see a different side of ACADEMY with more of  a Hip Hop vibe on ‘The Buyer‘ and ‘Come On Over‘.

Whether you’re looking to chill with the ladies or vibe out with the homies, The Beat Generation has got it all covered. Be sure to support good music and grab it on iTunes for $5.99! Check out ACADEMY on Facebook and Twitter

Since their arrival on late 2013, Academy has absolutely amazed with each single, but the one thing never received regularly were visuals. In January the duo unleashed their first set of visuals for their single We Ain’t Never and today the duo teamed up with director Kris Roller to drop one of the more creative music videos we have seen in quite some time for their single Hold Me Down.

It’s been a minute since we have heard from the rapidly growing duo Academy. Unlike most, Academy had yet to release an official set of visuals despite having great success with their Moving Methods EP which dropped last June. That changed yesterday as the LA transplants connected with up and coming director Elemen† and dropped visuals for their most recent single We Ain’t Never. Head over to their SoundCloud to grab the free download and be sure to stay up to date with Academy by giving them a follow on Twitter (@Academy401).
