This Dude is Mad as a Hatter: Femi the Drifish

Do you take your Doom, with a side of Kool Keith and the thrash of Jack White’s guitar? That’s as close as I can currently get to describing what Femi the Drifish brings to the stage, to music, and to art in general. And yes that’s a question not acutally a description. The album art gives you an indication of the challenge; he’s the mad man artist you meet that makes you question whether it really is the rest of us that are crazy. This isn’t music for the faint of heart not the faint of mind.
The Drifish has created his own niche that incorporates rock, spoken word, and hip hop into a delicious mix. This is music for those who love lyrics, love the unexpected and love live music. You’ll be tempted to just rock out with the melodies and sing along with his band the Out of Water Experience. Do that but then go back and listen to lyrics. This is where you see the real genius of Femi the Drifish. Those lyrics at first blush sound as if he were simply spitting nonsense ala Lewis Carroll or the actual hatters high off of factory fumes but very much like DOOM everything makes perfect sense.

Tune in; don’t miss our interview of the high energy, skillful lyrical wordsmith. Hopefully we don’t end up tied up or in straight jackets 🙂 Listen to the live interview Saturday @11 am EST here: http://listenvision.com/listen_live/index.html

The Evolution of the Emcee and Poet

Call 911! Alert the authorities. The hosts have been kidnapped and a takeover is happening. Matter of fact just tell everyone you know to tune in! Ananamas and Eight sense will be holding down the host spots and taking you on a journey. The Last Born child will share his projects The Consumer 360 Project and The Evolution of the Emcee. The Evolution of the Emcee does as promised and takes the listener through time and space. This is a head nod, listen carefully, he said what, some real lyrical nest, shit. Interspersed throughout the EP are interludes that include the beats behind classics like Memory Lane”, “98 Till Infinity”, “Chiefrocker”, “Reminisce” and more. Last Born takes you inside the soul of an emcee and the soul of all true hip hop heads through descriptions of falling for this form and connects it to other elements like djing, poetry and more.He’s also featured on The Consumer 360 Project which is another one to cop. I know you all heard that “Passing Me Boy-2012” joint. There is much more on this mixtape.  Check it out here:

Home is Where the Art Is… Substantial is Coming to GMGPSHOW!

His lyrics have Substance for a reason. Substantial has been extremely productive these last few years.  Blazing stages and booths consistently from Brooklyn to PG to Japan for over 10 years now. We are very grateful that the emcee with the unique flow, ill production, tight graphic design, and allaroundtheworld dope collabos is gracing us with his presence this Saturday.  Be sure to cop his newest project- Home is Where the Art Is, in advance so you can ask questions, send some love, or just get some GOOD MUSIC in your eardrums!
 
For more on Substantial, visit www.the QN5 website and check out the mini-doc on his album release party.
The Kharismatic…..Kane Mayfield! 

Boy oh boy oh BOY! Kane Mayfield had us in sttiches during much of this, his second interview with us! He talks about his not 1, not 2, but 3 projects in progress! Listen to some fly tracks, including “Some Love”, “Latenight Cinemax”, and “Ova Ya Head” (featuring Homeboy Sandman). BUT! We are NOT going to give away the entire show! We do quite the fool, however! One hint to the madness, this quick note to Kane’s mom: Dear Mrs. Reid, Please call us at (202) 573-9826 so that we can ask you, “for the record” how you feel about your son’s music. Love, Shameeka Dream and One Love… Auntie Yvette or Kane’s dad, please give her the message! Wink wink, Kane, wink wink ;)! Bonuses include the stories behind songs, Kane freestyling,  his “Ova Ya Head” verse spit a capella, and live bloopers!!  The interview was a pleasure always, and we can’t wait to host an actual Kane Mayfield performance!!!!

Janice B. Shares My Life

Janice B., eclectic soul singer, the first singer to sign to Stinkiface music, takes you on a journey between genres, spirit, love, humor, sadness, loss, and finding of one’s self. Her debut LP “My Life” begins with the sound that reminds me of what the RZA called a detuned piano. It’s the old school sound of her now deceased grandmother playing the piano, a memory, appropriately distorted as it as transmuted through time and space. The album is dedicated to the memory of this incredible woman who first introduced Janice B. to music performance. In the album you will hear soul, blues, gospel, reggae, jazz, rock and even hints of Portishead’s “Wandering Star”. Janice B. definitely shows she is “free to reach her destiny”.

SAHFFI: Beyond Our EXPECTATIONS

Enter the songstress who is free enough to release 10 tracks to 10 producers and say “go with your heART.”  This interview, done live during the sound check before Sahffi released “Expectations,” her most recent cd project, talks about the story behind the music, and focuses on such tracks and “Gravity” and “Ticktock Islands”.  Her love of classical music and confession, “I feel… like I’m a vessel…” make you understand so much about this channeler of folk, rock, classical, and jazz blends.  Sahffi is open and free in talking about her growth through tragedy, dealing with those who feel they know and love her through her music, and even her break-up from a long-term love.  She is honest and private, humble and strong.  Listen carefully to hear when she asks “How can I tell my story; how can I live this life if I didn’t notice?”  Listen to hear who she enjoys listening to, listen to hear her………..She is beyond genre, beyond trends… beyond “Expectations”…………………..Sahffi.
