Lor Choc has released her project ‘Love is Love.’ Releasing right in the middle of “love season”, ‘Love is Love’ is Lor Choc’s second studio album. This 12-track project is not only full of catchy melodies and hard-hitting production, but it also shows the growth and evolution of Choc as a person and as an artist. Whether it’s the thought-provoking, message-driven tracks like “Go Far” and “Ride”, the sonically-pleasing, radio-ready bangers like “You And I” and “My All”, or the triumphant and inspirational jams like “How I Feel” — there’s something for each and every music lover on this project. From start to finish, Lor Choc paints a vivid picture of her version of love as where she comes from, “love” has all sorts of meanings.

The Native (Cincinnati, Ohio) holds a special place in the heart of the underground movement. Since the age of 15 (now 25), he became one of the first kids to influence and utilize the internet in the format we see it used today.
He has consistently introduced new trends of sound, style, and marketing. That major entities have adapted and used for their own development, but now. He is determined to make a defined footprint as the true influencer that he is.
Having worked with artists like GAB3 back in 2010, along with performing with acts like SLUG CHRIST IN 2015. Just Like his Name states he is distinctively a native of this culture and what it represents today.
His debut album “Square Architect” fully represents this trajectory, and is nothing short of groundbreaking. There are melodies and sequencing used on this project that have literally never been heard before.
For instance, the first track “Collide” which uses cathedral type harmonies. That float over dark witch house instrumentation, places you in the center of a mid-evil church with Raphael on the ceiling. Truly, from beginning to end. This body of work takes you on an astral journey with a concise climax and resolution.
10 songs that seamlessly connect in a way that makes it almost impossible to stop listening..
