Resonators - Right Time (Official Video) Out Now

https://WahWah45s.lnk.to/x52N9WE Produced and Directed by Badj Whipple Cinematography by Dan Evans Stylist Zoe Padley Location and set design by Jim Sanders Filmed at Gallery Sans Brought together from Brighton's diverse and thriving arts scene and a love of the hypnotic, spontaneous and psychedelic sounds of dub, Resonators is a band blurring genre boundaries and carving their own niche within the ever- evolving sounds of dub-reggae. Mutual Understanding ======== 2016 saw them release their third album, Imaginary People, described by rootsreggaereview.com as "nine tracks of beautifully crafted, exquisite roots reggae". Right Time - the fourth single to be drawn from that album, sees Kassia Zermon, one of the band's two uniquely talented front-women, take on lead vocal duties. The single is a timely and much needed celebration of coming together as one people and one community with no leaders, just mutual understanding and uncensored joy! In that way it represents the band themselves and their need to create positive change through music. As well as the original version, this package includes an essential dub version from the band's ninth member, and in-house engineer, Darren "Jamtone" Mathers, and both vocal and dub mixes from super hot producer and multi-instrumentalist Ash Walker. Fans of this young man include Gilles Peterson, Don Letts and Lefto, and here he takes Right Time into futuristic King Tubby territories! Look out for an extremely limited white label 7" release of Ash's mixes, due out on September 1st. Reactions ======= "I love the Resonators and this is just so full of sunshine, joy and soul." DJ Mr Lob "Can't get enough of this band's music. Ash Walker's remixes are equally good. Adding to www.TheAlternative9.com as the single of the week." Nick Gray, Emancipation Radio

Akala - Visions - A Comic Book EP - Chapter One

VISIONS COMIC BOOK HERE: https://bit.ly/akalavisionscomic VISIONS COMIC BOOK EP (MUSIC) HERE: http://bit.ly/akalavisionsEP VISIONS TOUR TIX: http://shows.akalamusic.com Visuals directed by Tim Fox @CultLovesYou ABOUT THE COMIC BOOK: When previewed at MCM Comic Con in London in October 2016, Akala said: “Visions is a semi-autobiographical magical realist story which forms part of a new comic book series, written entirely in verse. This all-encompassing multi-media historical tale explores higher states of consciousness, charting the evolution of the art of rapping from West Africa’s Griot traditions, through Jazz, Blues and Reggae up to the modern day.” ABOUT THE MUSIC: With deeply stirring soundscapes and hard-hitting beats produced by James Leggett (aka Nearly Native) and Akala with additional production from his long time collaborator Lavar Bullard, the Visions EP sets Akala’s visceral trademark flow to moody strings and timeless rhythms, breaking new ground for his unique approach to Hip Hop: theatrical long-form storytelling - a signpost to where Akala is taking the hip hop genre. Visions will be released on all digital platforms on the 28th July 2017, one week after its world premiere on Charlie Sloth’s internationally renowned BBC ‘Radio 1’ rap show. This will be hotly followed by a string of summer festivals and a UK tour where fans and newcomers alike will be treated to the full live performance / visual presentation of the ‘Visions’ Comic Book EP as well as songs from his decade-spanning back catalogue this Winter.

Rashid - Musashi (Clipe Oficial)

“Musashi” é a faixa 4 do #ProjetoEmConstrução. Ouça/Compre: https://fanlink.to/MusashiRashid Ficha Técnica (MÚSICA) Letra/Voz: Rashid Produção: Deryck Cabrera Mixagem/Masterização: Luis Café Ficha Técnica (VÍDEO): Direção: Cléver Cardoso Direção de Fotografia: Álvaro Ruiz 1º Assistente de Fotografia e Elétrica: Eduardo Luderer 2º Assistente de Fotografia: Gabriel Dias Edição e Colorização: Álvaro Ruiz e Cléver Cardoso Realização: Granada Filmes e Barba Negra Studio www.granadafilmes.com.br Katana Kaji Edson Suemitsu é nissei da sétima geração de famílias samurai. Desde garoto sempre gostou de trabalhos que focavam uso de metal. Por volta de seus 29 anos ele começou a estudar por conta a arte da fabricação de espadas japonesas e algum tempo depois fez sua primeira espada, a pedido de um de seus irmãos. Praticante de Ki-Aikido, ele vem estudando artes marciais e a cutelaria oriental como forma de manter a tradição cultural e honrar os antepassados. Cada peça produzida é única, cada uma com sua própria energia, pois o Kaji Suemitsu emprega na produção de suas katanas muita espiritualidade para que a peça traga boas energias para seu proprietário. O trabalho do Katana Kaji Edson Suemitsu é feito de maneira artesanal como uma evolução da tradicional forja japonesa. Seu antepassado Yaita Kimbee Kiyosada confeccionava katanas na ilha de Tanegashima no século XVI e recebeu a incumbência de confeccionar a primeira espingarda no Japão. http://www.katanasuemitsu.com LETRA: Filho da guerra, igual Suboi, sem boi nos falante Dando trabalho tipo Fat Joe no restaurante/ Morô, lek? Noiz é o Rap tipo o Sant Ao contrário dos MC que se enrola mais que o blunt/ Musashi com a caneta e folha Sem perder a substância e ainda furar a bolha/ Mas fui ouvir uns Rap aí no jet Vi que a mensagem de vários dura na mente tanto quanto um post no Snapchat/ É o teste sem escolha ou bravata Fazendo o olho dos fã brilhar mais que sua prata/ Cata! Hip-Hop é o que guia minha ata Cês quer ser Montana, mas num conhece nem as lata/ Ah, tá! Se num for real num adianta Tem 2 vidas, a que cês vive e a que cês canta/ A minha eu não separo, sem lobby O que eu canto é tão real que quando eu lanço a bolsa sobe/ Cria das batalha, num perde o extinto O ponteiro ajuda, pique vinho tinto/ Num posso perder tempo Antes que venha um noob que curte xingar no Youtube mas não diferencia beat e sample/ Foi mal?!! Mas é real... Ao Rap eu sou leal mesmo que deixe de ser legal/ 2010 minha renascença, pique Senegal Contando a história em clássicos, é nosso madrigal/ Respeita o moço, senão é osso Conheço o fundo do poço, nada no bolso/ Tira a corrente do dorso, põe no pescoço Poder pra eles, colosso, pra nós, alvoroço.../ Do calabouço eu vim quebrando os fake Pelo tesouro tipo Nathan Drake/ Viram “Rashid” pensaram que é sheik, mas né não Minha riqueza é meus passo, tipo Break, ramelão/ E os cara fala: “Ah, os Rap do Rashid é chato, é só bagulho de mensagem Eu quero é jogo de palavra!” Tá de sacanagem?/ Num sou de rimar por rimar, titio Mas rima por rima não tenho culpa se os Rap que te intima é vazio/ Gratidão aos mestres por, mostrar que evoluir Não só é possível, evoluir é necessário/ Encher o celeiro mesmo sem salário Por que as linha tem que ser de primeira, não de primário/ Chamaram nós de “moda”, subestimaram o dom Já são 10 anos de moda, até nisso nós é bom!/ Don, expandindo meu trabalho lá pra London Sem sumir igual aquela marca John John/ Tudo pelo som, dispenso raspas Tornando palavras especiais tipo aspas/ Tiro no tímpano Tipo, dedilho do trítono/ Trinco, antídoto ao tétano Tifo, trampei pelo título/ Titio, pra alcançar o teto nos... Trilho, talento aqui “tá teno”/ Tiro motivo dos trópicos Tido como certo ao túmulo/ Típico. Faz tempo que o estado é crítico Mas de esquina em esquina o movimento é cíclico/ Eu não vivo de onda igual o logo da Rip Curl Calma, bico, o levante do justo é bíblico/ Com mais ‘Rhimes’ que a Shonda, presta atenção Rap mais pesado que a fatura do seu cartão/ “Noiz” expande a visão, tem noção do talento Mas só tira o pé do chão pra dar moinho de vento/ E vagabundo quer ménage, com duas Minaj Mas quando passa a viagem, era tudo miragem/ Que cê vai fazer da vida? Perguntou a malandragem Algo que dure mais que eu, como fez Sabotage!/ E essa é sem refrão “memo” Tipo a cypher de um homem só, vai vendo/ Ó... R-A-S-H-I-D, pode crê Aê, muito Tera pro seu HD!/ __________________________ CONTATO PARA SHOWS: agenda@rashid.com.br +55 11 97144-4844 REDES SOCIAIS Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/RashidOfici...
