Zion I

On the heels of the very boom bap oriented “Masters of Ceremony” EP, Zion I drops “Libations” the reflective 2nd installment of their 3 part series. “This project was heavily influenced by one of my best friends passing away suddenly”, states Zumbi, “His death put me in a mood to really analyze my life and how short this existence really can be. It opened my eyes and heart to both the ugliness and beauty of what we experience while alive.” Hence, “Libations” broods with reflection and deep emotion. “To me, libation is when you honor someone by pouring out your brew before you sip, its a sort of prayer. On this EP, I poured out some liquor for my homie, as well as my family, and myself” shares Zumbi. The EP features production from AmpLive, Headnodic, and newcomer Featherload. It also has veteran MC’s Mr Lif, Sadat X, and Opio featured prominently amongst others. Now ease back, and sip some of this heady wine from the Zion I cup. – From the official Facebook.

Los Rakas

Los Rakas is comprised of cousins Raka Rich & Raka Dun, pioneering Panamanians by way of the Bay Area on the frontier of a new Latin urban sound. Known for their fresh mix of hip-hop, plena, reggae and dancehall music with both Spanish and English lyricism, Los Rakas represent the cutting edge of Pan-American flows. Taking their name from the Panamanian word “Rakataka” – a negative slur used to describe someone from the ghetto – Los Rakas have set out to both inspire fellow “Rakas” by empowering them to become successful despite their circumstances, turning the current Latin hip-hop world on its head. In 2012, Los Rakas released their EP, Raka Love, touring nationally and internationally.

Their debut album on Universal Latino, “El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo” is out now! – From the official Facebook.

Martin Sexton

A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the tenth of 12 children, Martin Sexton grew up in the ’80s. Uninterested in the music of the day, he fueled his dreams with the timeless sounds of classic rock ’n’ roll. As he discovered the dusty old vinyl left in the basement by one his big brothers, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene. His 1992 collection of self-produced demo recordings, In the Journey, was recorded on an old 8-track in a friend’s attic. He managed to sell 20,000 copies out of his guitar case.

From 1996 to 2002 Sexton released Black Sheep, The American, Wonder Bar and Live Wide Open. The activity and worldwide touring behind these records laid the foundation for the career he enjoys today with an uncommonly loyal fan base; he sells out venues from New York’s Nokia Theatre to L.A.’s House of Blues, and tours regularly across Canada and Europe.

Happily and fiercely independent, Martin Sexton launched his own label, KTR, in 2002. Since then he has infiltrated many musical worlds, performing at concerts ranging from pop (collaborating with John Mayer) to the Jam scene to classic rock (collaborating with Peter Frampton); from the Newport Folk Fest to Bonnaroo to New Orleans Jazz Fest to a performance at Carnegie Hall.

Regardless of his reputation as a musician’s musician, Sexton can’t keep Hollywood away. His songs can be heard in many feature films and television including NBC’s Scrubs, Parenthood and Showtime’s hit series Brotherhood.

Stage, film and television aside, when Sexton isn’t touring he often mixes entertainment with his sense of social responsibility, performing at benefits for Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang camp, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, Japan earthquake/tsunami relief (The John Lennon Tribute), and Hurricane Irene relief efforts in Vermont, to name some.

In 2007 Sexton began his most successful years to date with the release of his studio offering Seeds. The album debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, and the Los Angeles Times said, “Call him a soul shouter, a road poet, a folkie or a rocker and you wouldn’t be wrong.”

In 2010 the album Sugarcoating found this one-of-a-kind-troubadour doing what he does best: locating larger truths. After hearing it, NBC anchor Brian Williams sought Martin out to sit down for an interview backstage at New York’s Beacon Theatre. It’s now featured on MSNBC’s BriTunes.

The New York Times noted that this artist “jumps beyond standard fare on the strength of his voice, a blue-eyed soul man’s supple instrument,” adding, “his unpretentious heartiness helps him focus on every soul singer’s goal: to amplify the sound of the ordinary heart.”  – From the official Facebook.

Eoto

A live band on hi-tech hyperdrive, EOTO has forged new territory in the electronic dance music movement. Locked and loaded with computers, loopers, midi controllers, routers, software, mixers, and the latest in music technology, multi-instrumentalist Michael Travis and percussionist/vocalist, Jason Hann have sent a speeding bullet through the electronic dance community due to their innovative 100% improvised approach and as a result, their exclusive sound. Not just a haphazard foray into experimental music, the duo starts their musical adventure from scratch (there are no pre-recorded loops, no backing tracks, and no pre-constructed songs in their live production) building each set, note-by-note, beat by beat, live before the audience as each show explodes into a full-scale dance party.

What makes EOTO extraordinary is the way the duo designs their performance by looping live guitar, bass, and keyboard synths, alongside with live drums and vocals, to carve out their sound right before the eyes and ears of the audience. No small feat in music production; even the highest order of studio producers, audiophiles, and musicians have a hard time wrapping their head around EOTO’s approach, and the wild ride that results.

Best known as the drummer and percussionist for the wildly successful String Cheese Incident, Michael Travis cut his musical teeth in the junior high school marching band playing the French horn in the early eighties. However, his deep love for rhythm has always played a major role in his career. In 1986, Travis picked up the hand drum and started playing guitar in Santa Cruz, California. It wasn’t until 1995, when the drum kit found its way into his life, a moment that would shape his career forever. For more than twenty years he has held down the rhythm section for audiences spanning hundreds of thousands of fans, in cities around the globe. His keen interest in international and world music has dotted his career allowing him to explore multiple genres of music, while keeping dexterity in each instrument he plays. His ability to perform as adeptly on the guitar, bass and drums allow EOTO to create a rich organic sound, often overlooked in today’s press-play DJ community.

When Jason Hann joined Michael Travis in the rhythm section of the String Cheese Incident in 2004, he was no stranger to the big stage. Performing professionally since the age of 12, he has toured and recorded internationally with the likes of Isaac Hayes, Loreena McKinnett, Dr Dre, Rickie Lee Jones and Vinx. His depth and knowledge of percussion has taken him around the world to study in countries as far as Mali, Ghana, Haiti, and Korea allowing him a rare deftness to switch seamlessly through a variety of genres of music, whether it’s Rock, R&B, Pop, Jazz, Latin, Latin-Jazz, Flamenco, African, Persian, Electronica, Techno and World music. With an extended biography that reads like the who’s who of music, it’s no wonder he found himself naturally drawn to developing a more experimental sound of his own, with EOTO.

As the perfect musical pairing, EOTO draws upon their rich history, training, and diverse influences to create an innovative yet fully improvised electronic music experience unlike any other on the scene today. EOTO has had many unique sit-ins that have allowed for, yet, another mark of their original sound including, The drummers of Stomp, members of String Cheese Incident, members of Umphrey’s McGee, Stanley Jordan, Dominic Lali (Big Gigantic), David Satori & Sidecar Tommy (Beats Antique), Billy Kreutzman, Vinx, Toni Childs, Karsh Kale, Jamie Janover, Steve Kimock, Jamie Shields (New Deal), and Adam Deitch (Lettuce) just to name a few. – From the official website

Buku

From the first glimpses of Robert Balotsky’s work as Buku, it was clear that the Pittsburgh native and graduate of Music Technology was onto something. With an effortless grasp on sound design and music theory, the young producer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, laden with resounding bass drops and intricate drum patterns. With a love of drums rooting from childhood, his work reflects the obsession – emitting percussive elements only a trained ear could produce.

Behind a kit since age 8, he followed the progression of handling percussion duties for multiple bands throughout his adolescence. Once introduced to digital production, Buku took his techniques to stranger dimensions – and he’s been pushing the boundaries ever since.

His early work has placed him at the forefront of a new wave of rising talent amongst East Coast producers. Garnering interest and plays from Starkey, Lunice, Paper Diamond, Shiftee, Clicks & Whistles, Kastle (to name a few), the up-and-comer has been paving a promising road over the last year.

With his debut release, ‘Slippy’ under the Slit Jockey imprint and a remix of Starkey’s ‘Command’ on Civil Music, Buku is poised to make much larger waves in the coming months: haters beware. – From the official website

Willie Joy

Don’t try to classify Chicago partymaster Willy Joy as anything but that – a party. Known for all types of bass music but steeped in the traditions of house and juke, his DJ sets and original productions have been packing sweaty dancefloors across the country from major festivals like Lollapalooza to sweaty illegal warehouse raves and Mad Decent block parties. His songs have been remixed by today’s top producers such as Dillon Francis & Flosstradamus while tearing up clubs across the country. Willy’s tunes get played by the likes of Diplo, Adventure Club, Crookers & BBC Radio 1. Willy represents the eclectic new sound of dance music coming out of the producers of the Windy City, rapidly changing styles and tempos with ease while always maintaining a frenzied, hands-in-the-air dancefloor.

Recently, Willy co-produced “Mash Up The Dance” with Major Lazer for their new album “Free The Universe”, as well as collaborating with Brillz for the standout track “WTF” on his TWONK EP. His “Free Willy Wednesday” campaign had the internet going nuts with an avalanche of free music downloads, and he is currently prepping a slew of new remixes as well as a new EP for release later this year. In the past Willy has worked with labels such as Mad Decent, Trouble & Bass and Top Billin.

With constant touring throughout North America and beyond, Willy is set to blow up fast. URB Magazine named him one of the Next 100 artists to watch – come see him live and you’ll instantly know why. Willy is known for blending disparate sounds into a single, ecstatic, live moment. – From the official Facebook

Blackalicious

blackaliciousresize

It’s one thing to make enduring records, another still to work with luminaries in multiple fields. Another thing still to treat the rhyme not only as a piece of poetry, but to play with the aesthetics of language in ways that represent the voice as a unique instrument in and of itself. Blackalicious do all of these things, and as evidenced by the reissue of 1993’s Melodica, they have been doing these things for years. Originally released exclusively on cassette, Melodica is being reissued digitally for the first time. It’s a vital document of the group’s progression towards their eventual position as lords of the West Coast Underground, Gift of Gab twisting his words with aplomb, his lyrics more carefree than his later work. Chief Xcel’s beats, meanwhile, tread the same funky, lighthearted waters as many of his left-field contemporaries, but everything on Melodica is coated in a murky scuzz that, somewhat conversely to logic, could place the EP alongside much of today’s weird, lo-fi hip-hop. As an added treat, Melodica contains “Changes,” an unreleased cut produced in part by one DJ Shadow, who joins forces with Blackalicious producer Chief Xcel to offer dusty drum loops and subtle, textured samples that would offer a glimpse into much of Shadow’s later work. In an era where hip-hop devolves into half-baked facsimile with alarming regularity, Melodica serves as a reminder that the true school will always triumph over the bullshit. – Official promotional biography

Daniel Bambaata Marley

DBM Photoresize

Daniel Bambaata Robert Nesta Marley’s life has always been centered in the reggae culture. From the time he was a toddler, he was accustomed to living out most of his days on a tour bus, continuously spanning the globe with his family, first appearing in front of a live audience at the age of five with Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. The inspiration of Daniel’s musical upbringing harnessed his creative energy and affirmed his natural passion for the art of making music and performing on stage.

During his formative years, Daniel expounded on his own musical journey and found that he first resonated with percussion instrumentation, his passion being the drums. As the young Marley ventured into the studio, the aspiring musician began producing his own music, developing his own writing and singing style and taking to the stage under the name Daniel Bambaata a/k/a DB.

Daniel and his cousin, Jo Mersa Marley, combined their varied musical perspectives on a single entitled “My Girl.” This along with his first solo effort “Live It Inna Fear,” a Damian Marley-produced track released under the Marleyowned Ghetto Youths International label, introduced Daniel Bambaata’s fresh approach to his organically grown sound. In 2011, he contributed his musical styling to his father Ziggy Marley’s, Wild and Free album on a song entitled “Changes.”

In 2012, Daniel Bambaata Marley started touring select U.S cities and in August of the same year, released his first independent effort 2 Feet. In February 2013, his single, “Treat you Right” was released on the Ghetto Youths International compilation album, Set up Shop Vol.1.

Thus far in 2014, Daniel toured with such artists as Lauryn Hill, Pacific Dub and Don Carlos, and was featured in a Rolling Stone Magazine article called Meet the Next Generation of Musical Marleys. Just as Daniel is on the verge of releasing his new EP, his late grandfather enjoys his first Billboard 200 Top 10 position with iconic 1984 album, Legend, which has sold over 11 million copies in the U.S.

Singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Daniel Bambaata Marley, has forged his own identity and proven himself on his own as the complete artist, expounding on themes from love to personal freedom. Inherently influenced by his legendary Marley lineage, Daniel’s musical styles range across all genres. Daniel notes, “through making good music, with a good message and good vibes, without any expectations or set blue prints, I choose to dedicate this life to it’s creation.” - Official promotional biography

Phutureprimitive

Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear… a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation… and Phutureprimitive was born.”

“Phutureprimitive’s music is best described as dripping wet love drops of nasty mind melting sonic bliss. Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, there is also a profound sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating into a full-on kinetic experience. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to the body, mind and soul.”

“Despite electronic music’s tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album “Sub Conscious” on Waveform Records, which remains the top seller on the label since its release in 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors. With a string of singles released in the interim on various labels, the birth of Native Harmonix (Rain’s own Record Label) brought us the “Luminous” EP in 2010; delving into a lyrical based production, supported by undulating synth work and a palpable haunting texture throughout. His second full-length release “Kinetik” forged new territories of emotional electronic dance music, exploring a heavier, bass-centric sound that adds raw energy to intricately detailed tracks. “Kinetik” remains on the iTunes Top 100 Electronic Music Chart, 3 years after its release.

With a new collection of songs released in 2 parts titled “Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places,” he takes ideas from his previous releases and supercharges them with hard-hitting dancefloor appeal, while maintaining the depth and prowess this trusted producer is so well known for. His first national headlining tour in Fall 2013 debuted his collaboration with ritual dancer Caeli La. The tour launched with the release of their first official music video, “Lucid Dream,” a collaboration with multi-media production team Vinton Depiction & Michael Miller, the animation/visual effects creator behind NBC’s “Grimm.” The Dance Out Your Demons Tour featured an interactive game, in which the audience members write down a “demon,” fear, or something they are letting go of on a piece of duct tape, stick it to the bottom of their shoe, and then “dance out their demons.” Due to the success of DOYD, Phutureprimitive announced that they will continue to incorporate the game on future tours. – From the official website

Kaminanda

Mission Statement… To produce and perform music that uplifts the spirit of the listener,while allowing for the natural ebb and flow of light and dark..Melodies channeled from within,Rhythms from around the world and Beats and Bass that sway the body into ecstatic release….Keeping it smooth and Sexy while tapping into the unlimited realms of Adventure,Beauty and Elevated States of Consciousness….Intentional dance music that traverses the many forms of midtempo and downtempo, while keeping it FUN! – From the official Facebook


The Rescuers (1977)

Rated G

Two tiny heroes, one big adventure!

Two fantasy novels by Margery Sharp were combined for in the Disney animated feature The Rescuers. The title characters are a pair of mice, Bernard and Miss Bianca. A little girl named Penny has been kidnapped by Miss Medusa. When the human law enforcement officials fail to locate the child, Bernard and Miss Bianca take over with the help of several colorful animal companions. In classic Disney tradition, the comedy element is offset by moments of genuine terror. Voices are provided by Bob Newhart (Bernard), Eva Gabor (Miss Bianca), Geraldine Page (Madame Medusa), Jim “Fibber McGee” Jordan, John McIntire, George “Goober” Lindsay, Joe Flynn (who died in 1974, not long into the four-year production), and a host of others. It scored at the box office, more than compensating for the $8 million investment and the half-decade of work it took to complete the film. In fact, The Rescuers remains one of the most popular of the Disney cartoon films produced after the death of Uncle Walt. A heavily-computerized sequel, The Rescuers Down Under, appeared in 1990. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

When the game is over, a new world comes to life.

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? — (C) Disney

Mischief loves company!

The original “Little Rascals” was a series of movie shorts from the 1930’s featuring the antics of small children. This children’s movie keeps the nostalgic feeling of the original as it follows the exploits of Spanky and his lovable gang. Most of the story focuses on Alfalfa’s unrequited love for Darla which goes against the rules of the “He-Man Womun Haters Club” that he belongs to. Club leader Spanky, is irritated by the love-struck Alfalfa and accidently demolishes their club-house. Now the kids nee to raise $350 to rebuild it. They enter a go-cart race offering a cash prize.

Rated R

“I can’t fly. I can’t read your mind. I can’t be invisible. I can’t see through walls. But I can kick your ass.”

Adapted from Mark Millar’s hyper-violent comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn’s (Layer Cake) vigilante superhero film tells the tale of an average New York teenager who decides to don a costume and fight crime. Comic book geek Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) may not have good coordination or special powers, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a fully capable crime fighter. After purchasing a flashy wet suit on the Internet, Dave starts busting up baddies with nothing but brute force. He calls himself Kick-Ass, and he can take a beating as good as he can dish one out. Before long, Kick-Ass has become a local sensation, and others are following his lead. Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are a father-daughter crime-fighting duo who have set their sights on local mob heavy Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong). They’re doing a decent job of dismantling Frank’s sizable underworld empire when Kick-Ass gets drawn into the fray. But Frank’s men play rough, and his son, Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), is about to become Kick-Ass’ very first arch nemesis. When Chris assumes the persona of Red Mist, the stage is set for a superhero showdown that could spell the end of Kick-Ass once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Steven Spielberg’s phenomenally successful sci-fi adventure thriller is graced by state-of-the-art special effects from the team of Stan Winston, Phil Tippett and Michael Lantieri from George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic. The film follows two dinosaur experts — Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sattler Laura Dern) — as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaur Rex. Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond’s two grandchildren (Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello), they are sent on a tour through Hammond’s new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee (Wayne Knight) sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control. Grant then has to bring Hammond’s grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic man-eating beasts. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
