A New Face in R&B and Broken-Beat: Dezaray Dawn

For as long as I've been living in Atlanta,GA, I've noticed a pattern in want to be hipster/alternative artists; yet, out of all that catastrophe, I've found an artist who is very
much a sleeper and needs to be the center of attention. Dezaray Dawn, an R&B/Electro/Broken-beat singer, born in Germany and a certified army brat, is a talented individual and deserves recognition. She would consider herself to be a self-described gypsy being that she has soared the different parts of the world during half of her lifetime. With that being said, it shows how diverse Dezaray's music happens to be. Much like myself, Dezaray is an MTV baby. She grew up emulating artist she viewed on her tv screen such as Prince,Michael Jackson (R.I.P), and Madonna. However, she notes Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, and Natalie Cole as inspirations. It doesn't surprise me that Dezaray is a versatile artist considering the fact that her cousin is Anthony David, as are Sean Stockman of Boyz II Men and Tameka "Tiny" Cottle of X-Scape, who are all different in their right. Dezaray's sound is a sound that is sort of familiar, taking you to a place of Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, and Fertile Ground. At this moment, Dezaray is on the verge releasing her EP Chameleon. The Chameleon EP consists of songs like "Can't Look Away"and self-title track "Chameleon" which are both my favorite and also, in my opinion, tell the story of what the artist is dealing with in life. Dezaray currently sings background with me every now and then and she has a very melodic voice and I am happy to say that we collaborate together. Dezaray and I talk frequently and she is more than excited to let the world hear what she has to offer. Hopefully, the world is ready for her and the message that she is sent to give. I am.

Late Pass #23 - DKD::Future Rage

DKD has been one of my fave electronica groups since I first heard them a while ago. Unknown to many, is the fact that they are Dego from 4hero, Kaidi Tatham, and Daz-I-Kue from Bugz in the Attic. Future Rage , released in 2003; encompassed broken beat, futuristic jazz, and electro sound effects to create soundscapes and loops that transformed your mind state to something out of this world. At one point you could mentally be @ a Rave, at another you would be gazing so hard just zoning off of the vibe *head still bobbing unknowingly though*. If you weren't hip to the album back then, it's never too late...

Lanu ft. Kero One - It's Time

Easy grooving on a Friday Evening! I feel like I should be en route to a Jam Session after listening to It's Time. Kero One's laid back flow over Lanu's instrumentation has me in a good place. [Oooo the horns!] I got this track in my inbox and honestly had never heard of Lanu before. After research I found that this track came from his album This is My Home . I previewed it on, and really feel like going out now! Take a listen, let us know what you think!

Deep Rooted - From the Heart

San Diego based hip-hop group Deep Rooted returns with the track "From the Heart" off their recent, self-titled release. The group of producer Mr. Brady, rapper Johaz, vocalist Just Brea, and DJ Artistic blend a nu-soul feel with hip-hop production to forge a unique sound. In "From the Heart" the beat is straight-ahead, but synth riffs make the time go by in the most soulful way. Meanwhile, singer Just Brea helps create an old school hook that is too in the pocket to not bop your head to. Guest artist, and rising hip-hop star Blu comes in for a verse and his flow mixes right into the Deep Rooted recipe. Look for the self-titled D.E.E.P. R.O.O.T.E.D. out online and in stores everywhere via Clear Label Records

Deep Rooted - From the Heart feat. Blu

Crown City Rockers - Soul

Flaunting one of the groups' most immediate attributes, "Soul," from Crown City Rockers' upcoming album The Day After Forever is a perfect primer as to where the Bay Area group's collective head is at. Over a driving, Bobby Byrd influenced drum track with overlayed jazz chords, emcee Rashaan Ahmad spits tongue twisting rhymes aimed at starting the party. The beat keeps it rough while the rhymes are smooth as an Adidas track suit, and if you close your eyes you can virtually see the hands in the air. The Day After Forever will be out September 29th on Gold Dust. Look for the group's spectacular live show coming to a city near you soon afterwards

Nicolay - Lose Your Way

Late Pass #22: Ledisi - Soulsinger :: The Revivial

Nine years & some change ago, the Indie Soul scene was introduced to a fire cracker of a voice by the name of Ledisi. Living up to her name which means "to bring forth"; she presented us with her 1st studio album Soulsinger: The Revival, that did just that... it brought us "undergrounders" forth in droves.
Wrapped up in this 17 track album were powerful vocals that commanded your mood to just chill. Not a serene kinda chill though, more of a grown & sexy kinda "let's drink a glass of Cabernet and unwind" kinda chill. She applied a perfect balance of soul and jazz with her own spin to it. The jazz instrumentation accompanied by her [now signature] scatting made it a very entertaining body of work.

As the time draws near for the release of her 4th studio album; Turn Me Loose, [dropping 18th of August] I thought I'd remind ya'll of where she's coming from, because she evidently comes with something greater each time! Here's a lil sum'n sum'n from the B side of Soulsinger, the side I killed over and over and over...

Album review::Georgia Anne Muldrow::Umsindo

As promised, I'm back with the review of Ms. Muldrow's tribute to the Ancestors; Umsindo which drops July 28th, yup, that's tomorrow! A cohesive album that reminded me of the era when there was gusto in a woman's voice. A time when you heard the words, but you felt the soul. A soul that lives throughout this body of work, and stays true to the name and definition of the album... Umsindo... "sound" in the Zulu language.

With 24 noteworthy tracks it's easy to speak about the album as a whole. It has a "let's kick it and listen to some good music, and maybe have a jam session" kind of vibe [a la Fonky Day]. You don't have to be solely paying attention to the album to hear it. It reaches out to you even if you're fully engaged in conversation. The instruments used to manipulate each song grab your attention. The words, you can't help but hear em. It's like you're going about life being productive and you hear something profound, the good thing is you're able to hit rewind to see what exactly she said.

"Walk in happiness & don't let it go , even if this world grows cold... You got it, complete & whole, you'll be fine cuz you've got soul" Words to live by, sum'n to motivate you thru the day. Words like that you'll hear in Generation/You Got It. Jina Langu Ni Afrika (My Name Is Afrika) and Idlozi are just two of the tracks that would appeal to any dancer because of the drumming. Accompanying her singing &/chanting are the drums. Growing, swelling, then fading as it subtly controls your every move [and repeat].

To keep on her constant path to enlightenment and education she speaks truth & life into John De Conqueror, Uhuru Flight, and Caracas. She speaks of past struggles, current battles and the hope of moving forward over ill intricate loops, sounds, and beats. Voicing her opinion in ways that may piss off some; she flows ever so sickly as she switches between rapping and singing to get the desired effect... to get your attention.

Ms. Muldrow delivered with the reverberation that is Umsindo. The stellar production that can be found in anything Muldrow touches is clearly on display in this her 3rd studio album. The beautifully written personal invitation into her world via E.S.P and Roses is such a testament.

For the aforementioned reasons Pink Bubblegum gives Umsindo 6.5 out of 7 Head Nods.

Head Nod Scale
1=Don't waste your time like I did mine.
2=Waste your time like I did mine but I dare you to disagree.
3=Well, there was the single.
4=If it were a hand in spades there's "two and a possible".
5=It's a "good" album. Meaning at least 3 or 4 solid songs.
6=Really Good Project. Has the "Rewind Factor" more than once.
7=The number of completion. Great Album. Instant Classic.

3 DJs to follow...

Throughout my DJ travels I have met many DJs that, of course, share my passion for music and make dope mixes. In addition, they cause me to re-evaluate my skills as a DJ and help me progress to higher levels. Three of these DJs have new (and some not so new) mixes available that I would like to share with you.
First up, is someone who is not a stranger here, AppleJac. Applejac has found some mixes from 1995 & 2004 that he's sharing at his blog. Check it out and follow the man, he's nice wittit. You must admit it!
Next up is my man DJ Nimbus, he always has the soulful and house flavors. He drops mixes frequently at Club Nimbus. Show him some follow action as well, and he'll continue to bless you w/the butta sounds.
Last but not least, is M Knight. This brother has always been nice on the 1s and 2s, but he's taken it to the next level and has made a video mix to share w/y'all. I'm sure this is just the FIRST in a series, if I know M Knight, so make sure you direct your browser to his blog to make sure you stay abreast of what this brother has to offer!

Vinyl? Check! #39: Let's Get Away!

La Guernica is a Spanish city that was bombed by German and Italian warplanes in 1937. Months later, the Spanish Republican government commissioned Pablo Picasso to create a mural for the 1937 World's Fair which exposed Spain's civil war to the world. Billy Cobham and crew also created a work of art in commemoration of the storied Spanish town, an 8 minute opus of musical goodness which includes a drum solo by Billy Cobham. So sit back, close your eyes and be transported to a funky fusion track from over 3 decades ago that sounds as good now as I'm sure it did then.

Billy Cobham - La Guernica

Vinyl? Check! #38: Running Away!!!

Yesterday, I was visiting my parents and my dad was telling me about albums that they used to listen to while riding the Greyhound back in the day. Yeah, I know, straight old school! He mentioned Eargasm and told me that they used to sing this album front to back. He continued to tell me that Disco Lady was the biggest hit from the album and I remembered that I had it in the collection. I decided to surprise him and sent it to him via email, but his treat is also yours as I will share one of my childhood favorites. Running Out of Lies always got me straight from the intro; the keyboard they used always sounded so funky to me. I never knew the words, so I'm sure I used to create some in my head or just make up sounds for the words as I'm prone to do. In addition, you know I had no clue as to what he was singing about, lol. Anyway, check out Running Out of Lies and be transported to 1976, a time when you could hear music like this on the radio and on television. Those were the good ol' days... BTW, some of the recording of this album took place in Muscle Shoals, Al!
