Strange Fiction :: EVOLVE Drops ‘Life’s A…’ Visual

Props to EVOLVE for being both one of the hardest working cats in the game and one of the folks most willing to collaborate with others.  His latest project, in fact, will be a series of collaborative songs with many, many recognizable names in the hip-hop gamut.  The first single, Life’s A…, features Deacon the Villian (of CunninLynguists fame) and JunClassic, and your’s truly was lucky enough to get the call for producing a music video.  ‘Public domain science fiction’ would describe the motif, but believe me, this track is dope.  Check it out, give it a like, and give it a share!

Looking Back :: The Final .::liquidstereoproject Show

It took many many years.  It took the rounding up of footage from multiple cameras.  It took finally getting an editing setup that could handle the magnitude of footage it would be forced to render, edit and so on.  And, after all of those hurdles, it took a full 24 hours to get it on YouTube, but it’s finally here and ready for the world : the final .::liquidstereoproject show.  This is comprised of footage collected from Atom ToddDave Brewer and myself.  Rather than choose the best moments, I decided to share it all.  The audio (and some of the video) is a little choppy, seeing as this was well before HD, but the feeling shines through.  I know I always say enjoy, but really and truly, I hope you do enjoy this… we left it all on the stage that night.

Next Level :: Chief and TheDoomsdsayDevice Releases ‘Repossession’

Many years ago, around my senior year of high school, I knew two things for a fact… I would be a live musician in some capacity, and I would be involved in film in some capacity.  I had no idea to what extent yet, but all of my energies were focused on those two things.

As I moved into college, I decided that music was the realm where I could compromise my vision and still achieve to a level that will allow to, at some point in my life, be financially stable and creatively strong enough to transition into film.  The next nearly two decades of my life found music taking me all over the world, and introducing me to many creative people.  The landscape of creativity also changed, and film eventually became as easy to do independently as music.

So, as we enter 2017, I find myself at a signpost in my creative journey.  The transition towards the film era is in full flight.  Repossession is my first official short film release (there are some college films that will never see the light of day if I can help it, lol).

Many thanks to SymmaTree and Sara Nadeau for their acting contributions.  Thank you to Jeffrey Garcia for providing his lights and lighting expertise.  Thank you to Carley and Ginger Root of All Evil out at Wildflower Country Inn and Event Center for allowing us a space that elevated the project.  Thank you to Butcher Bear and the whole (iN)Sect Records label for making music dope enough for a movie.  And thank you to all of you out there who have already seen this, and those who will hopefully discover it in the future.
