Spoken word poet RAPHAEL BLAKE has dropped the video to his latest track, Pilot. The South East Londoner’s body of work entitled The Undergrad is set for release later this year. The free 18 track mixtape will be released in 3 parts, each containing 6 tracks.
The third track taken from the Ambition body of work is ‘Pilot’ which follows previous tracks ‘The Undergrad’ and ‘Its More Than Poetry’. Pilot explores Blake’s ambition of becoming a pilot, but reveals the harsh realism.
The Undergrad is a body of poetry over music that encompasses the tales of Blake’s life and ideas, capturing his experiences within the 3 years post college. The concept of the The Undergrad project mirrors the journey of a university student that is partitioned into 1st (Ambition), 2nd (Reality) and final years (Sacrifice), each having its own theme revealing Blake’s ambitions, realisations and trials throughout. There are 5 spoken sound tracks in each year of the Mixtape including and intro and outro.
RAPHAEL BLAKE has walked the BRIT School path to graduation and started performing spoken word in open mics sets all over the capital as a 16 year old. During this introduction, BLAKE made appearances at Shoreditch Festival, and found himself a finalist at South’s Got Talent and a winner of various local talent competitions.The co-operate working system and typical monetary purist pulled Blake away from his passion but five years on he returns and switches the 9-5 for his pen and thought-provoking word-pictures to finally reunite with his hearts one true desire.
