It's been four years since Justinus Primitive released his apocalyptic hip-hop epic "Children of the Law of One" and swore off music to pursue other creative endeavors. Despite his intention, the universe had other plans for him. In his dreams, the spells sprouted like magical seeds. In his meditations, the melodies manifested themselves.

Close to the San Francisco beach, in a self created crystal cathedral, Justin has been pulling these magical songs out of the ether and recording them to disk. Along side a deep study of the historical use of vocal harmony, he's been researching the traditional use of magical spells in fiction, non-fiction, and film. From these last years, comes a new full length musical creation called PORTAL.

PORTAL is the dream light that illuminates the gritty urban world of "Children of the Law of One." PORTAL is the forest melody that echoes in your ears as you're waiting in traffic. PORTAL is the mystical door that beckons you to step through it, if you only knew how and where. PORTAL is a signpost for the Other. PORTAL is an act of pure magic that has caused Justinus Primitve to wonder "if you work in alignment with the Divine Will, do you do the magic or does the magic do you?" PORTAL is like nothing you have experienced before and will take a patient and inquisitive ear to tease out its subtle secrets.

PORTAL is centered around the signature long-form vocal spells that Justin has experimented with and perfected over the last years. Meditative and powerful in themselves, the hypnotic vocal rhythms are enhanced with the heavy sounds of pulsing synth bass and the natural acoustics from the caves in which Justin has recorded them in. PORTAL is a work of magic and mystery, sure to be a special release, the likes of which the world has never heard before.
