lyrics

THE LOVERS
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson/A. Remanda)Speak low move close let the world disappear
There’s nowhere I would rather be than right here
I’ve heard people talk about it never had my own
A warm place the rarest thing I’ve ever known…like waking up inside a dreamNo need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby ringsWhite lace fine shoes dancing around the room
We play like two lovers coming into bloom
Diptyque. John Lee Hooker’s playing. Blue Moon. Ruby Woo.
You smile and I sing my part to you: “…knocks me dead right off my feet”No need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like flowers and teaI won’t save it for later I’m gonna spend it all where we are
And whose to say we won’t waver for now we’ll try to be just lie with meNo need to fly away from where we are
Shoot me to the sun I’ll bring you the stars
Nothing compares to this a love so sweet
You’re my favorite thing like Paris, Miles and Joni
Yeah you’re my favorite thing like apples and ruby rings

A Decade of Mochilla (Parts One and Two)

VTech Presents: A Decade of Mochilla (Part One)
***Download: A Decade of Mochilla (Part One)

VTech is proud to present, A Decade of Mochilla, an epic mixtape, spanning Mochilla’s 10 Years Mixed into one mixtape and shared with you in two parts. This is Part One…

Mochilla is really more than ten years old. It was 1998 when Coleman and I explained to our Mexican producer on the set of the Control Machete video for Ileso that we would only shoot with the equipment that fit in our backpack. It was a Jansport (for clarity!). He replied… “Oh ok, you guys are the Mochila guys, Mochileros”. Of course we loved the word mochilla (the Spanish for backpack) but apparently didn’t know how to spell it thus the two Ls!

In 2001 we released our first project commercially under that name. Keepintime was a photo-essay that under the tutelage of Adam Glickman at Tokion became a short film. He initially thought of it as a piece to put on that new thing – the internet. But when it ended up being 12 minutes long we decided it was too long so we made a VHS to sell – we pressed up a thousand and they flew out the door.

Keepintime: Talking Drums and Whispering Vinyl became a Film Festival favorite and then the calls started. In the ten years since then Mochilla has grown. We have an office now and a micro staff of dedicated, talented people. We have travelled the world, made films about all kinds of music, crossed all kinds of boundaries, worked with people from 5 to 95 years of age and we are having a lot of fun the process. Along the way we have made an archive of photos, videos and audio. It is filled with glorious performances, tough breaks, ambitious harmonies and a lot of soul.

Early in 2011 we will be releasing a two CD Mix of these performances – one live and one live in studio.

As a seasonal gift to our friends at VTech we have decided to sneak you this first 20 minutes of the first volume. This is truly only a sneak peak in to the vast musical vaults of Mochilla. Coleman has sat thru many hours of music, digging in and around multi-tracks of kicks, snares and scratches. It is almost unfair to try to encapsulate all of this wonderful music into 2 CDs, but he did. Next week we will have another 20 minutes from the second CD, the studio sessions.

There’s a lot of memories here. A lot of magic.

Download, enjoy and you know – turn it up!

VTech Presents: Mochilla: 10 Year Anniversary Part 2 (The Studio Sessions)
***Download: Mochilla: 10 Year Anniversary Part 2 (The Studio Sessions)

The response to the first part of this mix has been incredible. Thank you for all the support and retweeting, reposting. Mochilla loves the love. Part two here today for download is stepping the game up and to quote Coleman “I wanted this mix to slap everyone in the face and get them to pay attention.” It is purely rhetorical of course, our version of a slap in the face is the caress of bossa nova, the thump of cumbia or the heart stopping wind sucking gaps of great syncopation. This mix has all of that.

Remember of course these are 20 minute teasers for the full mixes coming in 2011.

Just a quick note on the photo that we used on the cover – I snapped this one at the great “La Marcha” way back in 2001. It was taken in the Zocalo in Mexico City and Maldita Vecindad were performing in solidarity with the EZLN. The kid on his friends shoulders with the El Che shirt embodies all that we wanted Mochilla to be way back in 01 – engaged, excited, energetic and happy. Our brother and design guru Keith Tamashiro flipped it into our first logo and Stephen Serato has reflipped it into our 10 year mix cover.

This will warm your ears, brighten your heart and remind you of the strength of good music, download, hit play and you know – turn it up…

Thanks for all your support and happy holidays,

B+

Sounds of Al-Mashriq: The Land Where the Sun Rises

Mochilla Brings You An Exclusive Music Mix From The East

https://i0.wp.com/i527.photobucket.com/albums/cc359/WeFlyInk/ME-MIX-FINAL-With-SHOUTS-9_27_10-1.jpg

Sounds of Al-Mashriq: The Land Where the Sun Rises

Mochilla has brought you some beautiful mixes over the past twelve months: Hear the World, Addis to Axum, and the Verocai retrospective, Arranjos e Compisicoes. We value the idea of new old music, treasures that most likely haven’t found their way to your ears yet, and today’s mix is no different.

This past summer, Coleman and myself, along with Jay Electronica and his DJ, TJ the King, Ommar Offendum, and Will Quantic had the chance to go to the Middle East and play. We even made it to Egypt and linked with Kutmah there, but that’s a whole other story… This mix represents some of what we learned. It’s a group effort, but Coleman made the whole thing seem magically coherent…

Please click HERE, on album images or follow link below to download this mix and read the liner notes.

“Detroit Summer”/”Emergence”

Invincible and Waajeed

Video directed by El-Iqaa
Produced by EMERGENCE

Buy the “Detroit Summer” b/w “Emergence” 7″ single (free download included): store.emergencemedia.org/
Buy the digital single through iTunes: bit.ly/a1zMak

After several months of anticipation, two of Detroit’s most visionary hip-hop figures, Invincible and Waajeed, are finally releasing their single, “Detroit Summer” b/w “Emergence”. The passionate two-song project is not only being put out digitally and in limited edition 7” vinyl format but it’s also being launched with a powerful double music video as well.

This stunning visual representation of the songs was shot on-site during the historic Allied Media Conference and United States Social Forum this past June in Detroit. The video also documents the Detroit Summer Live Arts Media Project youth program, in which Invincible is heavily involved.

The “Detroit Summer”/”Emergence” music video debuts August 10th, simultaneously with the single release, showcasing the true passion both artists and EMERGENCE in-house video director El Iqaa put into the project.

This is far bigger than just Hip-Hop. “Detroit Summer” is not just a season, and its not just about a youth-focused organization in Detroit – the song is about a feeling and a movement. “Emergence” isn’t just the b-side, and it’s not about Invincible’s media company of the same name, but rather the dawning of a new era.

Invincible is already highly regarded as a lyricist, and Waajeed as a producer, but they are collectively ascending to new levels of on both songs. Together, the duo worked to show the resilience of their communities and refute the negative national image of Detroit. As Invincible’s lyrics proclaim, “You Call Motown a ghost-town, but the city’s vibrant!”

Detroit Summer/Emergence is a prequel to the full length album Invincible + Waajeed are dropping in 2011. For this single, they did a limited edition run of 1,000 7-inch records (all of which come with a digital download code) and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow. They are US! This is what we have become, afraid to respect the individual. A single person within a circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to EVOLVE.” -WindowSeat – ErykahBadu

Timeless Promos.

Peace to a beautiful week(end). I spent the last few days sorting thru contacts, labels, stamps, press releases, usps to get our (Mochilla) Timeless promos out to the hands of DJs, writers, radio personalities, producers, promoters, friends and fam… some new and many familiar names. Super excited for the box sets coming out April 2009. The future is so incredibly bright!
