Substantial – “Neighborhood Watch (The Other Guys Remix)” ft. Acem of Gods’Illa is produced AND directed by The Other Guys, also known as Joe and Isaiah. (This same team also did a remix of ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’).
The black and white video shows Substantial and Acem looking through the blinds on their window, talking about all the neighborhood ills you have to watch out for, from the old lady who hangs out of her window all day being in everyone’s business, to religious zealots and Jehovah’s witnesses, misguided youth turned thieves and drug dealers and even gentrification.
This is off the remix Album “Art Is Where The Home Is” available here: CD | Digital
The original “Home Is Where The Art Is” is available here: CD | Digital | Vinyl

Substantial – ‘Art Is Where The Home Is’ (HIWTAI Remixes) is a collection of remixes & live versions of songs from his critically acclaimed Mello Music Group debut, ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’. If you loved the original, executive produced by producer Oddisee, you will want to check out this somewhat more mellow version, featuring production by Bop Alloy’s Marcus D, Japanese beatsmith Haruka Nakamura, Deacon The Villain from CunninLynguists, DMV producers, Sean Toure’, Jsoul & The Other Guys, Jazz Hop production team A June & J Beat & Jackson, and Mississippi’s 5-D.
There are also some tracks featuring DC area’s live band Sound of the City, who jazz up the singles ‘See Hear’ and ‘Check My Resume’. One new song on the project is the previously unreleased ‘Lost Lost’ featuring Jsoul, produced by yU of Diamond District.
A CD of the Remixes is only available as an import on the Japanese boutique label Rockwell Product Shop. But you can get it digitally from Substantial’s own Bandcamp page and listen to or download the original album from Mell0 Music Group

For the album cut â€œResilientâ€ Substantial brings on Seattle producer and Bop Alloy partner Marcus D to provide a smoothed out, jazz infused remix.The track, originally produced by Eric Lau, is a testament to the strength it takes to claim your identity and walk your own path. The Marcus D jazz remix is a perfect fit for the reflective & uplifting declarations of Substantial.
