Full Circle :: DJ brimLo & Bavu Blakes Create ‘The Comeback Story’

a2100663194_10

From the digital desk of DJ brimLo :

“When DJ brimLo and Bavu Blakes are in the studio together Hip-Hop excellence has been assembled, two turntables and a microphone.  DJ brimLo trades his microphone for the role of the maestro on this project while Bavu provides us the narrative of The Comeback Story.  A good story starts with catastrophic tragedy, and that is the tone of Tick Tock.  The fall is scored in the ballad of Dead to Us.  The vocal stylings of CJ Edwards solidify the emotional foundation.  As we arrive on our title track, Comeback, the dynamic duo really flex their muscles.  Our wordsmith is in full stride as we all know “everybody loves a comeback,” he petitions to us on the Hip-Hop anthem.  Staying true a good narrative, the feeling of overcoming is followed by a lament for a time before the self-destruction.  Reggie Coby sets the tone of Yesterday with a properly penned hook and a swift sixteen.  In a true call and response fashion, TempestB closes the tune with the complimenting counter-chorus.  As a victory lap we get a repeat of the BIG Bright Future three piece ensemble of Bavu Blakes, DJ brimLo and Eric Levels on the closing song, Get Love.  Carefully broken into five significant segments, this EP effectively takes listeners through the emotional trek of a return to one’s better self.”

My two cents, this is definitely worth a listen and a share, and if you’ve got the funds, it’s worth copping.

Broadcast News :: Third Root & Reggie Coby’s ‘Reflection Of The Times’ Visualized

Growing up in the AustinSan Antonio corridor is a beautiful thing as a music fan.  Reflection of the Times, the lead single off of San Antonio-based hip hop outfit Third Root‘s upcoming release Libertad is a perfect example of that synergy.  The album is produced by Austin legend (and old friend) Adrian Quesada, and it features the guest vocal stylings of Reggie Coby.  The track in itself is exactly what it’s advertised as… vocalized thoughts on how the more things change, the more they stay they same, and why we cannot accept that.  Share this far and wide.
