Aside

when Smokey sings..

 

Been trying to find “Smokey’s Family Robinson” on CD for eons…finally copped it yesterday. His most left field and under recognized gem. I use to pick this record apart as a kid..still sounds fresh and innovative as it did in its ’75 release.  If “Quiet Storm” had a sequel, “Family Robinson” is the perfect follow up..”Like Nobody Can” is the apex!! #Smokey #Motown

Switzerland…

The universe does what it does…shout out out to my colleague, friend & brother RAS G (an amazing producer..check out his music!!) who informed me while he was in Switzerland (which I have never set foot in..not yet..) that he saw a record I released with my former business partner & lifetime friend Producer T.I.M. It was our project FOUR TRACK MINDS http://www.discogs.com/Four-Track-Minds-Gods-Gift/release/1909186. We released that project 7 years ago..goes to show you QUALITY has no expiration date..Hey Switzerland!!! I love you guys!! I will be out there this year!!! To any promoters or event producers and DJ’s..Please feel free to reach out!!! I would love to collaborate on any level!! I would love to meet you!!!

This pic was taken from a fan over there who bought the WAX…(wow…he didnt download it…he spent his hard earned money and paid for it..im beyond humbled..THANK YOU to whoever that young man is!! Props!!)

We put our blood, sweat, tears and time on that project..with our own money and creative direction..no distribution..just pure support from real music fans and tastemakers who took a chance on us..

Thank You to my main man RAS G for keeping an international eye on the creations!! You never know people!! Cheers!!

 


Unique74 Update* ONYX LOUNGE Departure /CHOICE Tuesdays..the future

Image

FYI, Myself o/b/o Unique74 has severed ties with ONYX LOUNGE in DTLA. Thus, CHOICE Tuesdays will be on hiatus (look for indulge! Wednesdays KARMA LOUNGE..better food..better people..better everything..) Also our event 2nite: SPECIAL was pulled from under the rug by ONYX LOUNGE two days before the event..(by text..not a phone call with “good faith and principle” compensation) Thus, we decided to sever ties being that we cherish the integrity of our brand over everything (and we NEVER renege on our deals..) We put them on the map as we’ve done for many venues and aspiring talent. We worked harder than any Dj, Promoter, etc that entered their venue..FACT.  DTLA knows the deal..the PEOPLE, press, magazine advertising editors and GOOGLE can vouch for our overlooked efforts…Now it’s time to move forward with beyond satisfactory settings.We THANK YOU for the long term support for over 20 years.. Cheers
