lyrics

THE LOVERS
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson/A. Remanda)Speak low move close let the world disappear
There’s nowhere I would rather be than right here
I’ve heard people talk about it never had my own
A warm place the rarest thing I’ve ever known…like waking up inside a dreamNo need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby ringsWhite lace fine shoes dancing around the room
We play like two lovers coming into bloom
Diptyque. John Lee Hooker’s playing. Blue Moon. Ruby Woo.
You smile and I sing my part to you: “…knocks me dead right off my feet”No need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like flowers and teaI won’t save it for later I’m gonna spend it all where we are
And whose to say we won’t waver for now we’ll try to be just lie with meNo need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like Paris, Miles and Joni
Yeah you’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby rings

Roy Ayers was born in Los Angeles, California and grew up in a musical family. At the age of five, Lionel Hampton gave him his first pair of mallets, which led to the vibraphone being his trademark sound for decades. The area of Los Angeles that Ayers grew up in, now known as “South Central”, but then known as “South Park”, was the epicenter of the Southern California Black Music Scene. The schools Roy attended (Wadsworth Elementary, Nevins Middle School, and Thomas Jefferson High School) were all close to the famed Central Avenue, Los Angeles’ equivalent of Harlem’s Lenox Avenue and Chicago’s State Street.

Ayers was responsible for the highly regarded soundtrack to Jack Hill’s 1973 blaxploitation film Coffy, which starred Pam Grier. He later moved from a jazz-funk sound to R&B, as seen on Mystic Voyage, which featured the songs “Evolution” and the underground disco hit “Brother Green (The Disco King)”, as well as the title track from his 1976 album Everybody Loves the Sunshine.

In 1977, Ayers produced an album by the group RAMP, Come Into Knowledge, commonly and mistakenly thought to stand for “Roy Ayers Music Project”. That Fall, he had his biggest hit with “Running Away”. In 1980, Ayers released Music Of Many Colors with the Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.

Since then, Roy Ayers has toured the world, many times over, released numerous records and had dozens of life changing collaborations. Roy also made a hug impact in the world of Hip-Hop and RnB. Many people have sampled him and covered him. Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blidge, Mos-Def, Digable Planets, DJ Shadow, Nas, Madlib, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, Common, The Pharcyde, Pete Rock, Jill Scott and many many more.

———————–

Pete Rock, “Soul Brother No. 1.” Rose to prominence in the early 1990s as one half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth. After the duo went their separate ways, Rock continued with a solo career that has garnered him worldwide respect. Along with groups such as Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr, Nas and Notorious B.I.G., Talib Kweli and the late J Dilla, Rock played a major role in the merging of elements from jazz into hip hop music (also known as jazz rap). He is widely recognized as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time, and is often mentioned alongside DJ Premier and RZA as one of the mainstays of 1990s East Coast hip hop production.

———————–

Stephen Bruner is Thundercat and Thundercat is the dominant bassist rising within the ranks of R&B, rock, hip-hop, jazz, electronic, and beyond. The mystique behind the man named for his favorite cartoon seemingly hides an introspective, ambitious, and fearless young artist whose solo debut album is finally emerging in front of the vast catalog of experience he has amassed in collaboration with the likes of Erykah Badu, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Shafiq Husayn, Suicidal Tendencies, Stanley Clarke, and Flying Lotus, his closest partner and head of the Brainfeeder movement. Stephen is joined by a serious cast of jazz monsters!

———————–

J.Rocc: One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. He began DJing in the mid-’80s with a California group named PSK. Soon after forming, the Beat Junkies became a seminal force in the rise of instrumental hip-hop, including core member Babu plus future stars Shortkut and D-Styles.

In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J. Rocc has been the DJ for Madlib’s live shows since the early 2000’s, was the 3rd member of Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) during the group’s live events, and collaborated with Madlib on Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6: A Tribute to J Dilla.

## official release ##

JUSTIN ‘KUTMAH’ MCNULTY was born in Brighton, England and moved to the United States when he was twelve years old.  KUTMAH grew up in Hollywood, California where he earned his reputation as a talented underground artist & DJ.  As an intrinsic member of the Los Angeles-based music collective dublab, KUTMAH launched his seminal club Sketchbook in 2004, which forged roots of the now-infamous L.A. beat scene.

On May 5th 2010 without any advanced warning and based on no criminal activity, armed U.S. Federal agents entered KUTMAH’s home and arrested him. Kutmah was incarcerated for two months under immigration charges. Sparking the FREE KUTMAH campaign, a collective of artists, friends and fans  rallied for the release of the well-respected artist. Theincredible global support behind the FREE KUTMAH campaign showed the power of his presence in modern art & music.  Upon KUTMAH’s release, he was immediately deported to the UK where he currently resides.

It was during his time spent locked-up that KUTMAH sought solace in art, drawing to keep sane with only a short pencil and his laminated ID card. The frustrated and emotional impact of his imprisonment and deportation have come to fruition with “Two Soups And A Honeybun”, the full collection of 37 drawings KUTMAH created in prison.  ”Two Soups And A Honeybun” debuted in London at 18 Hewett Street gallery on January 19th 2011. To celebrate the initial exhibition KUTMAH also launched “The New Error”, his exclusive three-volume mix cd series released with long-time collaborators Hit+Run.

The Los Angeles exhibition of “Two Soups And A Honeybun” debuts May 12th at HVW8 Gallery in Hollywood.  For KUTMAH’s hometown reception he has created “The New Error Vol. 2″, an exclusive 80-minute mix cd, as well as a limited-edition screenprinted poster, and 92-page art book of the entire ”Two Soups And A Honeybun” collection.  KUTMAH’s global art tour will culminate in Japan this summer with a special month-long showing in Tokyo, alongside record shop in-stores and an official opening night afterparty with djs and live performances.

Over the last year KUTMAH has toured Europe, djing shows with Saul Williams, The Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi, The Cinematic Orchestra, Dabrye and others.  KUTMAH also has forthcoming records out on Stones Throw, Brainfeeder, Poo-Bah & All City Records in 2011.

Music Video for “Canto de Iemanjá” by Mia Doi Todd – Kickstarter

“Canto de lemanjá” Kickstarter

About this project

PROJECT:
A dance music video for “Canto de Iemanja,” a song from Mia Doi Todd’s new album Cosmic Ocean Ship due out on May 17th, 2011 .

Iemanja is the Orisha or Goddess of the Ocean in the Yoruba, Candomble, and Santeria traditions.  She represents divine consciousness, healing unconditional love, feminine creativity and the essence of motherhood.  Kimberly Miguel-Mullen will be dancing Iemanja with Gaby Hernandez and Mia as her attendants.  We started choreographing the dance a couple months ago; now we are rehearsing at Heartbeat House in Atwater, Los Angeles.  Mia has been sewing the costumes, and Ernest Potdevin has built our Cosmic Ocean Ship.

We will be shooting the video in Baja Mexico from April 29th to May 2nd. Grace Oh and Theo Jemison will be shooting and directing the video, with drawings and aftereffects by Strangeloop.  We will make an offering on the beach of flowers, watermelon, candles, mirrors, combs, and our dance for the goddess.  We will carry her in our boat out to the Ocean and celebrate the sacred waters here on earth from which we all evolved, and the vast cosmic ocean of existence.  With the recent political and environmental upheavals we have been witnessing near and far, now is a good time for this spiritual gathering.  It’s an important moment to gather our devotion and set intentions for healing, evolution, peace and respect for the planet as a whole.

If you would like to participate in our offering, we would be very appreciative!!  There will be 15 people traveling to Baja for four days.  We could use your help with food, gas, accommodation, van and equipment rental, post-production, and flowers!  Iemanja loves white flowers!!!

Through our dance, our gathering, our offering, our prayers, we will unite together in love, peace and community.   And we will make the video to share and manifest our love.

Project Luz

About the Project:

We are 20 students in Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico prepared to start our own community news project with daily broadcasts and online posts to our community (and you!) using various platforms. We already possess basic photojournalism skills thanks to Project Luz.

Over the course of 6 months, we will set up the platforms and begin news reporting, writing and publishing our stories to our worldwide audience. Our mentor, a San Francisco-based journalist, audio producer and sound artist, is ready to spend her time, energy and resources to turn us into youth journalists within our community.

Now, we just need your backing and you can watch it all unfold!

Timeless Promos.

Peace to a beautiful week(end). I spent the last few days sorting thru contacts, labels, stamps, press releases, usps to get our (Mochilla) Timeless promos out to the hands of DJs, writers, radio personalities, producers, promoters, friends and fam… some new and many familiar names. Super excited for the box sets coming out April 2009. The future is so incredibly bright!

Dwele sings Angel w/Suite for Ma Dukes 40 piece orchestra!

Feb 10th is the fourth anniversary of Dilla’s untimely passing. People are celebrating his life all month long. At Mochilla, we have spent the past year working on A Suite for Ma Dukes. Until now we have held our cards close to our chest releasing videos and entirely instrumental pieces. But today in homage to the man responsible for all this we are releasing, just to you, the first vocal performance from SFMD.

Dwele sang Angel that night without rehearsal. It is a classic. Miguel’s arrangement is super heavy and Bob Power made it magic.

possibly maybe.

.possibly love.

Your flirt finds me out
Teases the crack in me
Smittens me with hope
Possibly maybe possibly maybe
possibly maybe
As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn’t mind perhaps
Spending little time with you
Sometimes
Sometimes
Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love
Uncertainty excites me
babe
Who knows what’s going to happen?
Lottery or car crash
Or you’ll join a cult
Probably maybe possibly love
Probably maybe possibly love, possibly
Mon petit vulcan
You’re eruptions and disasters
I keep calm admiring your lava
I keep calm
Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love
Electric shocks?
I love them!
With you –> dozen a day
But after a while I wonder
Where’s that love you promised me?
Where is it?
Possibly maybe probably love, possibly
Possibly maybe probably love, possibly
How can you offer me love like that?
My heart’s burned
How can you offer me love like that?
I’m exhausted
Leave me alone
Possibly maybe possibly maybe
Possibly maybe
Since we broke up
I’m using lipstick again
I suck my tongue
In remembrance of you…
