DJ Sidereal is definitely making a name for himself in the music world. Currently acting as tour DJ to rising Atlanta star Lil Keed, the Minneapolis talent has shared stages with the likes of Macklemore, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa. It’s an amazing accomplishment for Sidereal, who discovered his passion for music following a life-changing brain surgery that he had to endure when he was only eleven.
He’s also been crafting genre-bending songs of his own. Last year, he delivered a couple of EP’s — Heaven On Earth and You’re Welcome — along with some big singles, including “I Believe In You,” “Rest In Peace” featuring Nell, Denzel Curry, and Kaycyy Pluto, and “2500” with Keed and K Camp. Now, he returns with a new single titled “I See Ghost,” which features San Diego artist Alec Beretz and Mobile, AL rapper OMB Peezy. As explained by Beretz, the track centers around mental health and the increasing reliance on drugs and other vices in today’s society:
“There is momentum and positive energy in my life, but I’m still dealing with depression and self-medication. It’s crazy having both of those energies hit you at the same time. Meanwhile, the world is going crazy over anything and everything, and music is the only thing that makes sense sometimes. ’I See Ghost’ is about experiencing the light and the dark at the same time.”
Last year, Alec Beretz independently released his melodic, 10-track offering Peep This, along with the loose single “Lessons Not Losses.” Peezy, who’s signed to the Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles-founded 300 Entertainment, released his official debut album Preacher to the Streets back in April.
You can press play on “I See Ghost” below, which is available on all major streaming platforms. Fans of the single can expect plenty more from Sidereal before year’s end.
