Nudes” is a reflection on dating norms and how we build trust in our relationships.
My coping mechanism is to gloss over the fear and fun of sending nudes with sarcasm.
“Nudes” was inspired by naïveté in relationships, breakups on social media, and technology and intimacy intersecting. I wanted to contrast ditsy sarcasm with hints of heartbreak and frustration in the song’s lyrics.
The lyrics and melody were completely improvised. I self-produced the original version before taking it to the studio to add extra instrumentation and samples, taking it to the next level.

Co-written and produced by Thomas Doeve, the track was written about his brother, who he hadn’t seen or talked to in a few years. C. SHIROCK shares, “He told me the heartbreaking story about how his brother had disappeared and abruptly cut off communication with his family after suffering from his experiences in the military. As we talked and processed the situation, we started asking, ‘if we had a chance, what would we say to someone we’ve lost?'”
After successfully releasing his debut project Celeste back in February, Uni BLK returns with a self produced club type track to keep the pot boiling. Dusse is a record to show that he is truly a jack of all trades and very much so versatile with his music. It’s safe to say that Uni BLK isn’t letting up and plans to make a name for himself one release at a time.
Kope must be synonymous with mood generator, because with every song on Profound Aura, you’re carried between self-reflection, anger, humor, the course of love, and much more; all while being entertained. He wastes no time delivering his ideas over smooth, melodic, 808 filled beats, from some of the illest producers around the world. From the storytelling of his first born son in the song “Pre,” to his quest to make each new year better than the last on the song “Year,” to his demand to never be removed from his head space in “Please Don’t,” Kope gives you bar after bar of pure emotion through the words of a North Carolina boy all grown up.
