Mood Music for Valentine's Day

If you're looking for a different type of Valentine's Day treat here's a French confection for your ears. I've been listening to Evil Needle's Mood album since its release in October 2011 and it continues to put me in a great place. The warm synth chords and sleepy base lines help Evil Needle's Mood album create an atmosphere for relaxation and romance. Happy Valentine's Day it's a Celebration. #FortheLoVeofAllMusic

GFM Spotlight Interview: Uncle Craig - Director "Private House Party (P.H.P.)" (Official Video) Da Famous Boyzz

Da Famous Boyzz

"Uncle Craig"

More of a conversation with an old friend doing big things than interview... I recently chatted with "Uncle Craig" of M2C Productions who recently directed the short film that showcases the new single "Private House Party (P.H.P.)" by Atlanta based group Da Famous Boyzz. In this interview we discuss the inspirational back story behind the song, the genesis of several companies formulated as an outgrowth of this recording project, the NYC to ATL connection, bridging the generation gap musically and much more.

What "Uncle Craig" shares with us in this interview truly demonstrates the power of music. The members of Da Famous Boyzz are all currently upperclassmen in high school yet, they have been actively recording and performing since 2006. The beneficiaries of talent and great mentoring Da Famous Boyzz have a sound that has been missing in the Hip Hop marketplace for quite some time: Music that everyone can listen to without the aid or assistance of bleeps, bloops or reversing objectionable words.

Shout out to Blahzay Music Group label home of Da Famous Boyzz, M2C Productions for this great film and Day After Productions for holding down the scoring duties.

Checkout the interview and the film after the jump! You can keep up with Da Famous Boyzz around the web at these outlets:

New Music: Cage Lu "Slow Burn (Snippet)" Prod. by Kensaye

Wanted to drop this little snippet today for those family members who love that quality Hip Hop. The music is from the forthcoming EP entitled Slow Burn from UK Hip Hop artist Cage Lu and produced by Kensaye who's great work with Native Sun we posted this week. Keep your eyes and ears right here for more great music coming from across the pond.


New Music: Native Sun - Indigenous Soundwaves

The recommendation is very, very simple here: this is a sound you need to get up on. You know how sound vibrates? Right? Where does that sound go when it leaves our immediate presence? Well, I'm a firm believer that the music doesn't just disappear, it continues to travel and connects with ears and hearts far from where the sound may have originated.

You want proof? Checkout this set Indigenous Soundwaves from Native Sun and you will hear the goodness of ghost of Hip Hop Past transported across the Atlantic and transmitted back to us with a freshness that is all 2012 complete with influences ranging from Afrobeat to Reggae but with a foundation that is certifiably Golden Era Hip Hop.

Shoutout to Kensaye for putting us on to this dynamic duo and make sure you check him out doing the thing on the track "Senses" as he holds down the production duties.

About Native Sun

Native Sun is a London based duo consisting of bilingual rapper Mohammed Yahya, born in Mozambique, South East Africa and singer-song writer Sarina Leah born in London with Caribbean roots.Read more
