Petite Planete & Remixes (available now on iTunes)


Thursday, 28 August 2008

early morn eastern ish

Before bed...or in the morning...

- night!

remixes >>>>>soon

working on two emanative remixes this wk!! having a ball with them too. now the album is done and dusted and i've had a couple of wks to chill and catch up on some very necessary catching-ups.....it's nice to sink my teeth into some fresh music, the mixes are both SO different (ain't gonna tell ya 4 whom yet neither!)

The first has some nice and up-tempo jazz dance funkiness, but in an emanative stylee! slightly latin, a tad funk, and very jazz.

...the second is deffo on a downtempo jazz hip-hop tip (at the mo' anyways? we'll see)i'm equally excited about both mixes.

I had a chance to put down some live drums to tape for one of dem whilst recording for "When On Earth"....soon come (7" out sept!)
the other I'd already done some time ago...jazz bop hip-hop slow and low brushes!
tempted to mention the vocalists........(but, i'll hold back in case i'm the only mutha who digs the tracks?)

Getting some nice plays with Turn Your Lights On I noticed today! Brother Scrimshire said in his podcast http://www.scrimshire.com/podcasts.html that it was maybe his fave tune of the year....what a dude!
He said that to me himself , but I thought he was just being polite?
Simon Harrison added it to his Nu-World mix 45!
http://www.basic-soul.co.uk/nu-world/ e.t.c.----------------
Very Nice!

the Petite Planete e.p. with all the good mixes/versions, will be up on i-tunes soon. think it's up already elsewhere?

All good...back to my mixes......

When On Earth - Futuristica 45's

The Emanative single When On Earth is now in manufacture!
It's coming out end of Sept on a funky little Futuristica Music 45.

a.) when on earth (vocal)
b.) when on earth (inst.)

There's some other good tracks in the Futuristica 7" series coming out soon too, like Replife's - Put It Down feat Kissey Asplund (Domu Mix) with my fave RU Ready on the flip, which was produced by Marc Rapson. (seriously digging anything Marc gets his paws on! He's going to be doing a mix of When On Earth for me:))
Then there's Mr Beatnick's The Fourth Day (???think that was the title?) which I heard at CD-R, Plastic People... vey nice! Hopefully his Fog On The Runway is on the B-side? (Just my wishful thinking!)Also dig anything Nick gets his mitts on!
Two of my personal fave producers of the mo' no doubt?

Brother Isaac

Here's one for Brother Isaac who left us recently.
I love his version...tough beats and soulful strings!
He'll be missed. I heard that his son (also a drummer) was producing his next album?
Maybe the tracks that were finished (if any) will get released???

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You’ll be famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

Except when they don’t.
Because sometimes they won’t.

I’m afraid that some times
you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win
’cause you’ll play against you.

All alone!
Whether you like it or not,
Alone will be something
you’ll be quite a lot.

And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance
you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will indeed.
(98 and 3/4 percent guarantied.)
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Modecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!
