I have been really bad about posting recently but trust I have been working my ass off! I’m just going to run down the latest and greatest so we’re all up to speed and hopefully I’ll get back on my posting grind again soon.

First lets deal with what has already happened. I recently was invited by my good friends back in Baltimore to once again be part of the Bmore Dilla event. This was the 10 year anniversary performance and the final one. I mean, 10 years is a good run, right? So you know I had to make my way back home to be part of something so special. And the whole event and weekend did not disappoint. I did Elzhi‘s “Come And Get It” from Welcome 2 Detroit which is a hell of track to try to pull off, but with the assistance of the ever talented J Soul (seen below) we did the damn thing. The rest of the artists crushed it as expected and Pete Rock ended the night in classic fashion.

New Music: E Major – The Look of Love Pt. 3

Dilla-The-Look

10 years later and there is a still an emptiness in Hip Hop where J Dilla’s sound and soul once resided. The culture and the music and the artists that he inspired all miss him dearly. I of course, include myself in that group. This is my little way of honoring him. I got my brother Doug Mattingly on guitar, Alex Koch on keys and synth bass and my homie DJ MadOne and created this track based on the incredible Look of Love from the J 88 days. I hope you all enjoy.

PEACE!

New Video: E Major – “Answers”

Inglewood resident and Baltimore native, E Major returns with a dope self-directed music video for “Answers,” the latest from his EP/mixtape Konduct da Invazion which features E Major rhyming over Madlib instrumentals. “Answers” utilizes the instrumental from Lootpack’s classic with teh same name and builds on it with cuts by another Maryland resident DJ Mad One who is also featured in the video.

The video plays with some of the lyrics E Major spits and finds he and Mad One trying to collect a ransom for a state senator as E Major makes calls and a ransom note, and Mad One drives the aforementioned senator to a destinations unknown.

New Album: Sean Armstrong – Three

armstrong-3

Sean Armstrong is working on a series of mixtapes that are released in succession and each having one more track. Basically the first one was just a single, there was 2 For Dilla and now he unveils Three, which has 3 tracks of course. He’ll keep this up until the end of the year so you gotta keep checking his Bandcamp page or djfacemusic.com. The thing that’s really impressive about this joint is he produced all three cuts too. Sean is truly a triple threat. Even with just 3 songs, he’s giving you a range of emotion, so check ’em out and let me know what you think.
