AR Base's latest track, 'Life is Running', is out for release as a follow up to his single 'No Plague'. With the loss of close loved ones this year, seeing the injustice of innocent lives lost, and pondering how quickly our own time will come, AR Base wrote 'Life is Running' as an inspirational reminder to not waste our days on earth. "Many things are going on in the world now that the book describes as trying times. So through it all, we've got to just hold on to God, while life is running," he explains.
Working with UK hip hop producer Super Beats, the new track brings an electric vibe to AR's calming R&B influenced vocal stylings. Dropping from the get-go with a striking electronic guitar melody, backed by a powerful hip-hop beat, and smoothed over by a mellow air, 'Life is Running' creates a reflective mood. AR Base's wide ranging music has been featured on the likes of Soul Tracks, PM Studios World Wide Music News, and was most recently in the spotlight on Jesus Wired.
Influenced by living in Inglewood, California during his early adult years, AR developed his ministry's vision through his love for music. Signed to Gee Ray Records in 2006, and also having the privilege of singing behind legends such as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Shirley Caesar, and Beverly Crawford, AR Base gained exposure to the music industry. He even had the honor of being chosen as backup for the 'Godmother of Soul', and Grammy Award Winning Patti LaBelle. It was an experience in his life that he is forever grateful for and will never forget. Learning behind the greats molded AR Base's own musical stylings to combine his R&B roots, flavored with gospel, with a hint of neo-soul, and a dash of hip hop influences.
With the release of 'Life is Running', AR Base reminds us that "life goes fast even if it feels slow, so don't miss out... God is calling you now."
