GET IT NOW, THE ITUNES LAUNCH Will be more for "Them" less for us. lol


i wanted to make a record that held some of the audio art that runs through my head. this EP was done with the understanding that i am making life difficult for reviewers, buyers, fans and subsequently me.

but, this is what came out.

this is a record that focuses less on a unifying theme nor pushes one form.

in the past we have mixed mediumed our releases but usually under one concept. my attempt this time was to make a bunch of music then create an EP of the best material i enjoyed.

i pray that was accomplished.

on the project I am rocking live; spitting a poem in the middle of cypher; singing about missing work to stay with a lover, with the snare drum absent; telling about my love for children over spacey jam by jonn nubian; getting electro-soulish to discuss sex; and, dropping some break beats that would make James Brown and Sade envious.

i had fun making all this music -- and i believe it shows!!
