Every human being on Earth will owe his or her existence to Adolf Hitler. World War II resulted in the deaths of over 50 million people. What became of all the offspring those millions would have produced? After a few generations, we may be talking about quite a few people here, and some of them could be pivotal individuals in the stream of history.
I’ve been a fan of Detroit Native Daniel Timlin for over a decade. My hope is we get to share these special drawings regularly. Timlin splits his time between Chicago and Detroit doing odd jobs, drawing, and perusing the local fare to inspire, and of course his famous cheap beer and grilled meat parties. A humble entity, yet uniquely gifted as a human, and of course a brilliant Artist.
We owe it to ourselves to make the press realize we’re not little pawns in a “soundtrack for your life” factory. We’re artists, and you shouldn’t get to treat the sounds like ketchup for your french fries. We owe it to the music to stop making our material so widely available for free. The business of music is fake, it doesn’t get much clearer. You have to pay to play, period. The new paradigm is quite disgusting and its killing me a little. Making me wanna be a flower on an empty hill.
Lets say goodbye to our parents model of white collar ethics, overseas junk, and work too much syndrome, and allow us, the youth who are the future, get what we want. A place we can all make it, smoke it, love it, and chill a bit more.
I can be a modern hustler, but mostly Im fending off these molds of irrelevance by creating sounds in the comforts of solitude, and a loving community. You take a step back, let a beat play for a second, and the whole world changes in front of you as your twitter feed updates. Who’s in, who’s out, whats the new new, and what’s Kanye saying now? Its all a sham coasting in the supernovas of your poor wifi connection. The cell phone is the new cubical, and we’re all slaves now. But there’s hope…
Make it Fit (Salt Lake City) is releasing new DJ mixes regularly and playing out like a monster, largely sticking to his ever growing vinyl collection. In todays standard of “auto sync” that should be widely appreciated. Stay Tuned for his schedule in the SLC area and the West Coast. And don’t miss his monthly residency at the Red Door, SLC.
Chicago Producer, and DJ, Adam Stolz just released his new mix, Building Impressions. If you’re into House or Techno music it doesn’t get much better than my boys taste in Dance Music. I’m currently working on a new album with him under the name Hot Butter Lunch. The recordings sound so dope. Hopefully we release later this year. Stay way tuned!
Christina has always been my biggest believer, supporter and collaborator. And Gray is a constant inspiration. The tone of the album reflects that, and also calls back to a time in my life of curious freedom and absolute content.
