SilentJay & Jace XL - Sacrifice     Funk/Soul, RnB 10/05/2016
Coming straight out of Melbourne with plentiful attitude, Producer/multi-instrumentalist Silentjay teams up with fellow Hiatus Kaiyote backing vocalist, Jace XL to present 'Sacrifice', a mini album of epic proportions.
A personal reminder to yourself and loved one of the balance between selfishness and selflessness. Sacrifice doesn’t mean surrendering or refusing, but understanding both sides and making them work for you. We felt that ‘sacrifice’ was the reoccurring theme throughout the EP which is why we named it after it.
