The great thing about being a dj now a days is access. The access to music is ...well it is something to brag about. Funkmaster Flex throws out random numbers on his show like 1.5 million and you think he speaks volumes about his interviewees albums. Actually, he is quoting the amount of songs on his itunes. He is large and in charge and a force to be reckoned with in the city of nyc. Legendary in fact but enough about him. I came home around 1am last night, sit in the living room, smoke one with my room mate and hit the sheets. I dream about liquor, boobs, sex and the fact that i need to put more cool ass events on in the city and start becoming a movie producer for reels. Wait, was it a dream, i used to read source magazine, Biggie Smalls up in the limo......zzzzzzz

Omar is awesome

by Black Bubblegum

Omar Lopez

The world's worst named band with the most interesting lineup have announced the release of the first in a trio of albums, Cryptomnesia, due on May 5th. El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez (for the spanish-challenged, that's The New Group of ORL) is the melding of Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In), Zach Hill (Hella), Jonathan Hischke (ex-Hella), Juan Alderete de la Peña (The Mars Volta), and "features the vocals of guest frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) on eight of the album's eleven tracks". OK, can it get any more spazzy? Sounds pretty wild, and judging by the tracks in the below video, it just may be.

Though the first album was completed shortly after The Mars Volta's Amputechture in 2006, it wasn't until last year that Mr. Random Word Generator, aka Cedric Bixler Zavala, added his vocals to the mix. No word on personnel, or release date for the additional two records.

In addition to the May 5th release, " A special limited advance vinyl offering of... 3,000 copies will be made available... to Indie Retail in honor of RECORD STORE DAY on April 18th."

Cryptomnesia is the first release on Rodriguez Lopez Productions, the new imprint formed by... guess who? ORL's last record, Old Money, was released by hip hop indie superpower Stones Throw digitally in 2008, and in hard form on Jan 27th 2009.

Listening to STS aka sugar tongue slim

After recovering from a night where i could not watch the Oscars but guessed right regarding the rewards, i am packing a full mind clip and ready to rumble with some sugar tongue slim in my system. Not bad i say. The song i peeped the most sampled LA Roux and is so addictive, i see why he is in demand. I posted the song about a week back and i use it to pump my mornings back in nyc. Yeah.... I am back. Watch out. Going strong. I recovered from a friday night of drinking and laying on my bed wondering why i drank so much. The artist known as Sugar Tongue Slim now called STS is part of the new group Black Thought put together and has already released two mixtapes that i know about. Ha.

BTW Mad Decent sign Brik Mason.

Say HI to CYHI da Prince

I have been peeping this dude, CYhi for a minute. He has a great song called Sweet Georgia that shows both his vulnerability, his knowledge and his lasting impression of the city he resides. Shoot, he is lyrical. According to the illdoctrine, that is how you get your respect. Well, i respect him. Now i have to go practice my fake dance moves and get ready for ABDC.
