We have EYES UP next Thursday the 26th with Descry, Taurus Scott, Freddie Joachim, and Computer Jay. A week after that on August 3 is LiFESWELL with House Shoes. We’ve got a full talent collective we’re supporting, too. Like Garfield Adams and Jon who are working on their Bay Area show on August 4. And Shelly who is wrapping up the first season of a new TV show on Bravo. And Bambeeno who just linked with Cam Meekins for his new album. As for me and CA, I’ve been going back and forth with our web developer for changes I want implemented like an Instagram feed and banners to affiliated sites. One of those sites would be Tastemakers; we’re preparing for a big feature on the Agenda Show. Anyways, music helps us get through all that. Here’s what’s playing in our workspaces:
ME: Rick Ross - God Forgives, I Don’t
After the interview at Truth Studios, we all went to dinner. Glenn drove and was playing this in his car. He was more interested in how it sounded sonically, I was just interested.
GLEN: Maria Bethânia - Pássaro Proibido
He bought the record while he was out in Rio, and he’s been listening to it to find some samples.
JOVIN: Ab Soul - Control System
He’s a fan of TDE’s camp so it made sense to listen to this. Jovin thinks Ab Soul sets himself apart from peers like Kendrick and Schoolboy Q.
WELLA: Jai Paul - Jasmine
She has stepped away from the Korean obsession and is now onto the UK. Plus she’s been on the whole “voice as a sound as well as lyrical vocal” thing.
