One to Watch: TY

TY – EMOTIONS music video featuring Sarina Leah and Shaun Escoffery from tymusic on Vimeo.

“Who never got the props that (he) damn well deserved…” ~ Phife
TY can rock a party with an a capella orchestra. At six in the evening. In Elephant and Castle. I’ve seen it.

And that is when I realized that his is a talent that is not to be denied. He was selected to work with Tony Allen on Tony’s solo album. He’s had guests like Tyler McFerrin, Rich Medina, and De La Soul on his last album and his latest album is pretty dern good. He put out a maxi single of remixes to his latest single. Heavy weight music from Dego MacFarlane (One half of 4 Hero) and WAAJEED (another One to Watch!), but i still prefer the above original version.

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you Mercury Prize nominee TY.

Love Quest

by omniosi on Aug.21, 2008, under sense, sound, taste

As reported on Gilles Peterson‘s Worldwide show this week,
Questlove will be producing the new Smokey Robinson album!!!
{…long pause full of amazement and wonder…}

And if this upcoming album is anywhere as good as the recently ?uestlove and James Poyser produced Al Green album "Lay It Down" as well as the tribute tracks for Isaac Hayes that are credited to The Randy Watson Experience {?uest and James’ cover band} then this is going to be a project worth watching for and hearing more of. Now if they can only get an official release on the Pharrell remix project,
"Out of my mind"!

o:{and some more Bilal madness. this Time with The Randy Watson Experience. "I wanna run with ya!"}

and then the mix itself:

“…Surrounded by hate
yet I love home.

…asked my dude how travelin’ the world sound,
found it hard to believe
he hadn’t been past downtown.”

{quotes from Common, on Black Star’s “Respiration”}

I’ve been really wanting to go home recently, and the time will soon come.

This is a mix I made soon after arriving in London a year ago and it’s finally seeing the light of day! Hope you enjoy and if you like, drop a comment. To my people in the States, I hope to you see you all soon!

this is a test 2

by omniosi on Sep.25, 2007, under omnious, sight, sound, touch

After months of staring at this computer screen, I am ready to share the second version of my thesis project:

The Hamlet Safety Project is an experiment in
comprehension through music.

It seeks to emphasize understanding through connecting contemporary musical language with that of classical literature. And considering how popular music, and hip-hop specifically, has helped spread English and slang around the world, I’m curious to see if these connections can make it easier for people who are learning English as a second language as well as those trying to understand the messages of Shakespeare.

Please feel free to respond with any questions or problems you have with this presentation.

(and keep an eye out for a little remix business coming soon)
