Paranoia will destroya~

Imagine if everythnig that ever happened it your life was a lie,
Would you roll over and die?
Have you ever heard of the theatre of the Absurd?
What if nothing in life ever occured?
Then where would you be
think very thouroughly.
What if everywhere you went you were never late nor early?
No dress code
Yer never young or old
would you worship a pot of gold
if you were to never be hot or cold
dissapear into the soil
like so much used motor oil
Would you be STRONG and recoil
and live forever like just like alluminum foil
assuming you don't boil
now your life is styrofoam
yer coaught up in the spiral form
These are the things that i think about when i brainstorm and never conform

Crossing elements of ignorance with intelligence
hence forth the wicked cannot distort the truth any longer
many years i fell victim to phallacies
chasing pipe dreams and fantasies
causing a wanted anomosity
towards industrials pimps that lie to the masses
saying how simple that they had it
I never envisioned a dark side of this
but what got in their heads
ya'll know the biz is my witness
take off those rose colored lenses
and ask yourself where an artists creative control is in the hands of an A & R and exec table
bull**** if you think your paid in record sales
the monhey fronted pales in comparrison to studio engineer costs
if you thought it would pay yer rent where thats where you lost.
promotional booking and touring is where your cash is
and from this how; much is your manager getting again?
So I ask you all is it really worth it?
Is falling to corporative descisions all your purpose?
please avoid the sidewinding serpent
investigate teh underground knowledge before you surface
hold your own
your music is your element
take control of your situations
put down your records
INDEPENDENT!

BANGTRACTION, the first EP drop from '4tha3rdtime' does exactly as the title states and this track set its off. Produced by D.S.H very own, "DJ Interlude ", 'Sax in the House'is a head clincher and comes fully equipped with melodic saxophone riffs, electronically swaying back and forth between retro-jazz funk pushing bass coils to tri-dimensional depths.
The 2nd song, produced by “DJ Quad IN BLUEBLACKNESS”, called the “ ATLANTIC 22 (A Guy Called 808 mix)”, flirts with an updated Swahili-version of the classic 1989 original release of the song “Pacific State”, paying homage to the original group “808 State”, with “A Guy Called Gerald” as the remixer! Fasten your seat belts, this track is taking flight with a very haunted sax and world-Trans-Atlantic strings!!
Last but not least and also produced by " DJ Quad IBB " is a “Freek Of Fusion”...LOLOL, literally! Driving on this track will no doubt get you there in no time! Beginning with arpaggiated synth effects, forces one to move faster on the expressway, as if shifting to “auto-bahn” mode!! Yes, take the nearest mental express vehicle and ride with this one. This instrumental EP will take you to places forgotten in time and will cross oceans beyond sight.

Following on from the phenomenal success of 'The Dancer' K-Alexi is back on his own K Klassik label with 'Acid King' - a no nonsense late night acid house rumbler, with vocals from K' Alexi showing just why his voice & style has stood above the rest as the true Acid King.
No shortage of heavyweights on the remix front either, with a stellar cast including Grammy Award winner Maurice Joshua, Joe Smooth, Stretch Sylvester Terry Farley & Cabana Recordings honcho Justin Imperiale, each taking Acid King into different areas of the dancefloor.
 It's not just epic it's K Klassik Baby!

'This isn’t just the largest festival of African and Caribbean music in Britain, it's the best'
- The Sunday Times

'Perhaps Britain's best free festival'
- Clash Magazine

The UK’s largest, free African music festival Africa Oye returns this summer and can unveil a globally acclaimed line up headed up by reggae / trip hop star Finley Quaye.

Rising to fame in the 90’s, Finley Quaye's sound made waves across the globe and he topped the UK charts with hits like ‘Even After All’ and ‘Sunday Shining’. His debut album Maverick A Strike was an instant success racking up multi platinum record sales. Finley Quaye (whose relatives include Afrobeat purveyor Femi Kuti and trip hop star Tricky) will play a mix of classic and new material when he brings his warm Sunshine sounds to the stage.

The team at Africa Oye can’t wait until the Scottish-born, Mobo and BRIT award winning legend Finley lands in Sefton Park to headline on Saturday.

Now in its 22nd year, Africa Oye attracted around 30,000 in 2013 to the two-day, family friendly city event, and the team are over the moon with this year’s line up. Jupiter & Okwess International have a unique story;  Jupiter was born into a family of griots from the Mongo region. His grandmother was a renowned healer and she taught him how to play traditional rhythms to heal the sick at a young age. As a teen his family moved to Berlin, where he collaborated with European musicians before returning to the Congo. A documentary about his musical exploration called “The Dance of Jupiter” was released in 2007 and his album Hotel Universe was released last year to critical acclaim.  Jupiter also collaborated with Damon Albarn to feature on the album “Kinhasa One Two” in 2011.

Also joining the bill are London based Cuban 9-piece band Wara, playing a mix of latin funk, hip hop and rumba. Bending genres with gusto, band members hail from across the globe; from Argentinia to Spain and this unique mix defines them.

Next up on the bill is HAJAmadagascar & The Groovy People who create Afro trance, in a project that gathers musicians from across Africa and the Diaspora. Rooted in Malagasy tradition (the spiritual music of Madagascar) the charismatic groups live show delivers immense energy, and is a must-see education for music lovers!

This year Africa Oye will be bigger and better than ever! The family friendly, non camping show features workshops, the Oye Active Zone, DJ tent, world cuisine and the Oye Traders Market on top of the sterling main stage line up.

I just uploaded the video

of what I believe is Delhi Mputu's only hit song.

I remember it was on all the radio stations

and it was a song every dj played at the birthday parties.

It was one of those songs that I knew - because it was played everywhere - but I did not know the name of the singer.
