ART A Reasonable Truth Premiers “SoCal Waves” as New Single With Upcoming Music Video

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.

ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.

Listen to “SoCal Waves”

After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.

Also check out the new YouTube channel. Let’s go through the tracks and discuss them, shall we?

Centerpiece

The lead single is full of energy and with a hip-hop pop chill cruising anthem, calling people the centerpiece shows how different many artists out there are and ART A Reasonable Truth is not exclusive talking up their own game, he wants to share it. The inspirational track paves the path for the rest of the tracks that make up a unique conceptual pop album.

Acid

This track will make you wanna bounce like a bunny with its bubblegum pop sound about seeing someone who makes you trippy but then also hits you with that acid. Such is life and even so this fun song is like happiness in a bottle. It’s also first of two tracks on the album that don’t include a rap.

Ready

A more contemporary hip-hop song mixed with some auto-tune and a dirty beat chanting “Yeah – I’m ready for it” puts the third single into full force letting us know that this is still the beginning and yes we are ready for it!

The Recipe (ft. Ayem)

A song that sounds more like a universal pop song, “The Recipe” switches gears with melodies and raps that take us to private island vibes as the song describes being the recipe with so many flavors. Shortest track on the album, featuring Ayem is a pleasant surprise and it’s a memorable jam about being a mix – which ART and Ayem are.

SoCal Waves

Hits for days. This oceanic song will paint you a picture and take you straight to the beach with 100 Cali vibes. That reprise is also highly addicting. Prepare to be taken away to the waves of the Pacific.

Get Down With It!

That first verse electronically builds up and explodes into a club banger that takes you right to the dance floor. This single released on New Year’s Eve and is a jam for years to come. Want to bring the energy at a party? This is your song.

IDGA$

This song is catchy for all the right reasons as it deliberately makes fun of artists who are overly repetitive. ART makes the statement about how we can collaborate and make better releases in the mainstream even with people not caring about real collaboration and only being paper chasers. Love those bongos.

Discover

High energy fast-paced song about discovering life together with piano and electronic sounds building to a climatic reprise, it sounds like a video game as the lyrics want to take you to new territories leading to new zones.

Trip Zone

The album takes a cool slow down to this ambient track that describes the world as a trip zone as ART wants to explore and vacation the world, taking you along with him. Interesting, yet beautiful, this song has several different sections which make this song not only very original, but a fun and mellow ride.

Jubilant Soul

The last dance jam on the album, ART encourages people to show their bright exuberant souls with what we imagine will have a special dance choreographed to the hook. Those raps are insane too. It’s like “Centerpiece” introduces its cousin.

Le Movies

This dark castle piano closer takes a whole new turn as ART expresses how he wants to make his move in the movies once again and even saves some French for the end. The expression through poetry and the fact that this has no chorus also makes for a solid close to the Centerpiece album, proving a bit of what ART A Reasonable Truth can do. Isn’t that reasonable?

Anthony “Rory” Tran turns 30 today.

ART Premieres Hip-Hop Anthem “Ready”

When a tracks bangs such an anthem that could easily hype any sports event, be a song for going out – or even chillen, and just relating to being ready for whatever comes next, this “j-amthem” will make you want to hit that repeat button and the vocals will indefinitely get stuck in your head.

In contrast to the previous 2 singles released by ART A Reasonable Truth so far, “Ready” is a bouncy hip-hop jam with such flare and pizzazz that it stands out with a self-confidence motivational message:

“Check your back, I’ll attack/Yeah I’m ready for it/From the bottom to the top/Yeah I’m ready for it/When you know what you do/Yeah I’m ready for it/Yeah – ‘Cause I’m ready for it”

Artist Anthony Rory Tran is ready to show the world what he can do with music and talent with another banger by Aaron Byrd – the man behind the beat of the “Centerpiece”single. Tran surprisingly let the mix into an Instagram advertised mixing house in New York for this track in particular wanting to collaborate with different engineers on the album for a sense of diversity. The track was mastered in Long Beach by D.M. Gremlin Studios who also worked on a majority of the tracks for the debut album Centerpiece – which is coming to all music major platforms February 9, 2018.

“Ready for something bigger than you can see/Something that can take you and believe”

Is this the new 2K18 banger? Comment your thoughts below and be sure to let everyone know – who’s ready.

“Gotta Be Free ft. ART” Music Video Releases Today

A wild ride was in store after Master T.C. & The Visitors collaborated with director Anthony “Rory” Tran (ART A Reasonable Truth aka Trippy T) on his upcoming psychological thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown in 2011 by contributing the thematic single “La Dee Dah”. When other songs like “Gotta Be Free” were also submitted, ART felt like something could enhance the intro. He wrote a rap, recorded it and submitted it to the band who then liked it so much, that they got it mixed and mastered by a music connection at Atlantic Records – and soon after announced it as their newest single with the music video premiere here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

The video was shot at the infamous Ohio State Reformatory prison where Hollywood movies like Shawshank Redemption, Air Force One and the new Sylvester Stallone movie Escape Plan 3 was filmed right after MTCATV. Lil Wayne’s “Go DJ” music video was also filmed there. ART flew from Los Angeles back to his home state to perform his part last August. The video features Victorian costumes and a jailbreaking storyline. 

See behind the scenes!

ART Premieres Club Song “Get Down With It!”

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!

Stream/Download “Get Down With It!”

The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:

“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!” 

“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good. 

A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.

ART Premieres New Single “Centerpiece”

The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Play and get the new single “Centerpiece”.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T

Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece”  is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.

ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.

The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.


ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January. Hear that song here.
