2016 was a topsy-turvy year for quite a few people and Mind of Genius V.P. Azad is putting it all into perspective by delving into the melancholy with his A Very Emotional EP.

Seven tracks. Seven stories of heartbreak, pain, recovery and optimism.

With seductive numbers like “Ready” and post-modern trappings such as “Goddesses,” Azad covers a gamut of emotions that several music fans who were rung through the ringer this year can surely relate. Production credits include Jonathan Marquez, Sango, Atu, Dpat, Stwo, Patrick Collier, Millz Douglas, HUCCI and mixing and mastering by Daniel Braunstein.
