SOUL

SOUL music video finished & uploaded to You Tube now… I’m pleased with the out come, it’s taken a while to piece it all together,  as Rakim said “Fitted like pieces of puzzles, complicated!”

It’s a good visual representation of the lyrics & meaning in what I’m saying in the song (there’s always a deeper side to my work which wants to come through in what I do).  I’m pleased about that,  as I want the viewer / listener to be stimulated… I’m not you’re run of the mill rap artist talking bollocks, that’s for sure!

Time to share the links on social media & let the people see the SOUL.

Peace.

7″ SOUL #VINYL RELEASE EVENT : Saturday 29th October, Brighton.

sat-29th-oct-gig-poster-1I’m getting hyped for next weeks #vinyl release event & performance!  It’s been almost a year since I last played in my home town of Brighton, the last gig was with my crew Sublime Wizardry when we supported the mighty Public Enemy @ the Concorde2 club.

This time it’s for the release of my first solo 7″ #vinyl : SOUL / Being Human, that I’ve self-released through our own Show & Prove Records label,  sales have started now @

I’m proud to be joined on the night by turntable scratch-master DJ Tones & electronic beat maestro The Jezter… plus I’ll be collaborating with the lyrically furious MC, Graphic Bars, on a new tune we’ve made with Hamburg’s finest Hip Hop producer Merlin!  It’ll be the first time we’ve performed it live, footage of the throw down will be used for the new video we’re putting together.  It’s always good to work on new tunes & video’s , that keep the creative mind-muscles fined tuned!

It feels good to be doing what I do right now.  If you’re local to Brighton, it’d be good to see you there.  #Vinyl #CDs & #Cassettes from the crew will be available on the night.

Love & Light to you & yours.

Peace.

 

Rough Trade / Record Collector

me-rough-trade

Rough Trade Nottingham now stock 7″ SOUL / Being Human…  I wanted Rough Trade to be the first shop to stock the vinyl,  it’s a shop that represents the independent arts in a very cool way.  The lay out of the shop, decor & vibe is a comfortable one, they cover all styles of music, so my record will feel at home in there!  I’m into music that has original flavours, cutting edge & sonically interesting on the ears ya know… Rough Trade have always represented artists who make just that!

I drove up to Sheffield after Notts to Record Collector,  I wanted to meet the dude who’s had the shop since the 1970’s,  that’s always supported local & underground indie music.  They don’t have much hiphop in the racks, but this record is more indie / electronic sounding that I feel will grab the attention of fans of those genres more than hip hop,  tbh!record-collector-7-wall

#Indie #Electronic #HipHop #LimitedEdition #Vinyl Sales are starting to happen from my band camp site :

It’s nice to have a few fans who’ve supported my work through out the years. I know they know good music!

Next step is to finish the music video for SOUL & release it this weekend, then promote it, along with the vinyl release gig happening next weekend 29th October in Brighton.

No rest for the wicked…..  as the saying goes eh!

Peace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Promo’s to radio dj’s, music press & promoters…

img_0346It’s the DIY ethos all the way with this release, as has been with previous releases, it just feels a bit closer to home being my first 7″ solo record!

It’s a costly thing, not only the cost of pressing up the vinyl but the mail outs, envelopes, postage, promotional time online & networking, all add up!  Not that I’m complaining, cos I’m not,  just sometimes it’s good to feel like you’re not alone in this game, that’s why I fully appreciate people who share my music & video’s online,  cos without them it’s a pretty hard slog attempting to reach people without the £’s to push art in this world, as I’m sure a few know all about!

I knew that this release will be used mainly as promotion, I wanted to get a copy to all radio dj’s, music press & promoters who play, review & promote good music.  If it get to break even for costs of the record it’ll go directly into the pot for the next record, which I’m already beginning to visualise!  It’s the artist’s path I walk on,  some moments are sheer bliss & enjoyment being able to do what I want to do, other moments are frustrating & disheartening…  thus the artists path!   The thing I have most in is belief in the music & in my abilities to deliver it live.  I’ve seen many artists who’ve managed to reach people on a national level & I’ve often thought, if they can do it, I CAN,  if ya know what I mean!

It’s about making a statement in song & making something No-One has made before now, more than ever before.   Both songs on this record are original, No samples, No breaks, just All original sounds… which I’m proud of.   They stand alone.  As I do.  Working with producers who know their craft , is helping me evolve my song-writing in a way that feels unique to me…  Remarkable,  you know!

SOUL is now online to listen @

I’m uploading both songs to band camp for 7″ vinyl pre-sales as I type… while gathering info / addresses for more promo mail outs.

As Blade said “Forwards with the music, come!”

Peace.
