This month’s track is the release of the premiere single from my Gas Galaxy album. It is called Hypetronic and was co-produced by Chapter 7 and myself. Chapter 7 on the mix as well. My Cubic Zirconia family released this maxi-single style EP on their imprint, Don’t Cry Recordings which features an exclusive remix by Lunice (LuckyMe/Mad Decent) including instrumentals. Do yourself a favor and check out Lunice if you’ve never heard his music.
This is my tribute to some of the great African-American entertainers who were born in the borough of Brooklyn, NY, which is also my hometown. This was inspired by the “Roll Call” scene in Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing” where Samuel L. Jackson’s radio DJ character says a list of famous African-American musicians, though not necessarily from Brooklyn. I had always loved the music that was playing behind it but was always surprised no one tried to duplicate the idea, though I guess it was impossible to sample it since it was completely spoken over and didn’t appear on the movie soundtrack.
I figured I might as well be the only person to attempt to replay some of the elements of the music and turn it into a tribute piece to Brooklyn so I hope even those who are not from there can still appreciate this and the artists I mention who made their impact on the entertainment world at large…and daring to add myself to this already illustrious list 😉
released 29 July 2011

"Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. "
— James Baldwin —
"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain. And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy; And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief."
— Khalil Gibran —
