Originally hailing from Florida, Ghost McGrady headed out west and posted up in Koreatown, Los Angeles where neighbours and police frequently complained of a loud smell and an even louder stereo system blaring the wide spectrum of vivid sounds that would ultimately come to form the beats throughout this album. This is a collection of songs composed over the past four years (2014-2018) that form one coherent thought: Believe. Each beat was created with an open mind and a ‘fuck the popular sound’ mentality that comes from years upon years of sample chopping and sound design experience dating back to Ghost McGrady’s genesis at age 11 in his darkened bedroom.
Believe is the consequence of House Shoes discovering Ghost at a local event and building a relationship that culminated in Shoes curating this album using brand new tracks & material that had previously been heard in various internet locations. To have these heavily textured songs that were once made in a dim lit, lonely, and depressing apartment be heard on vinyl is simultaneously a dream fulfilled and the perfect medium for their expression.
