Playing tracks by
Various (including Zach De La Rocha, Chuck D, MLK, Bebe Lestrange, Rev Sharpton, Malcolm X, Kate H, and Scratchdoctor Kitty), Janet Jackson, Gil Scott-Heron, Bassnectar f/ Sayr, Body Count and more.
More genres than one can shake a stick at, and endless sampling from a wide range of folks, this was directly influenced by my current and past reading re: the black civil rights movement of the Sixties, the COINTEL scandal, MKUltra, the so-called War on Drugs, gang violence, police brutality, the Occupy Movement, and the current dissension spreading from Ferguson, MO, to Baltimore, MD, to NYC and Philly, and so on. Hopefully those who listen will be educated--some of the quotes from old or long-dead activists are just as true today--but entertained, amused, and sonically engaged, as well, because at the end of the day, it's all about the music.
no bull . just Beats
