This is my first post, and because this is all about the music, I wanted to present to you a friend that taught me about music. Sam Crowe one of my piano tutors gave my class a series of lectures about how to express different moods through use of music. It was a mind blowing revelation!!! the fact that you can with predetermined “chord” shapes or using different “musical modes” make sound a song happy or dark, cheerful or sad, introduced me to the music language, the sound alphabet, a code to adopt to tell stories even without the use of words. PRETTY AWSOME ISN’T IT? There is a lot to say on the subject but now I’m here to tell you about Sam, he is playing this weekend in London and you might be interested to listen to his musical stories. Sam Crowe has just released an album with his band and is giving a free gig this Saturday at the Royal Festival Hall in London set starts at 4.30pm to 5.30pm. I highly recommend it if you like live music, well played by masters in the genre. This is a link to his website and some videos
Its only every few months that you come across a rapper that you can say…DAMN..this geeza’s got style…last time that i thought that was when i came across Spitty Cash, a guy that had difficulties in the ghetto…a ghetto that never existed! (Check him out in a masterpiece such as Difficolta’ nel ghetto)
Anyway now i heard he has made it big and drives around the ghetto with a Volvo rather than a Fiat panda back when he made “the street Chronicles Intro” (and used to hang around the conad where he was well respected innit?
Ok, but its not spitty we wanna talk about here, but someone less violent and much funnier, i first heard one tune with his voice on and thought,i gotta find that geezer,and after about 6 months i came actross to the mighty Prince zimboo. Now, he’s got what i call the african humor, simple but effective, and style too. Funny enough i realised he did a tune with major lazer too Well, you gotta listen to him your self to realise the style of one of his productions
And on hold the line freestyle
And dont forget to get some of his tunes and remixes people did for him on the links below,after checking his myspace Heh!
As we just set up this blog, what a better start than giving away some freebie…like…i dont know… a remix? and whats better than a remix?…. A free homemade remix! yeah man! I never really been much into blog (not a big talker either) but why not wasting some time talking about random things to people that will probably not even read them…yeah since we got so little time…lets waste it!
I kinda felt like remixing this track when i realised how close it is to the original, not that it matters much…as long as it sounds good but feel free to judge it your self by comparing the sample….
