As a bonus to the Cleptoz show in Bloomington tonight, I thought I’d share a new track from Dizzy Yung’s solo project The Becoming (due early 2010), which features the likes of Rusty Redenbacher, Son One, Mr. Kinetik (production credit for ‘Heart In Pain’), alpha.live, and others.

Old Soul Entertainment knows how to turn the Jazz Kitchen out on a Wednesday. I got the chance to chop it up with DJ Limelight (finally), see Mr. Kinetik perform new songs, and watch a late night cipher with Rusty, Son Of Thought, Skittz & others. Good things! More video up over the weekend.

Off the upcoming S.O.S. (Sounds of Soul) project from Mr. Kinetik. Also check the s.a.i.n.t. RECON page for updates.
“Like Bill Withers and Crusaders, my Soul Shadows on my mind
often times, have made me blind
One of a kind love affairs with my music
helped me get through it,
to grow my life off of the Peace (of my Soul)
to help those that needed it, but my work got lost in download overload
still I hold the soul, with my weaponry
be prepared for anything that steps to me…”

Free Download: Mudkids – ‘Ride’ (Track 1, MKEP) (UPDATE: I just noticed that MOKB put up this song yesterday… oops. Get it here, or there… either way is a good decision)
Rusty Redenbacher, Mudkid numero dos, gave me a sneak peak at the new project available on iTunes 8/25. As a follower of the Kids for years, I can say this 6 song collection can stand right along with heavyweights like Higher (2001) or Basementality (2006).
1 ‘Ride‘ sets the tone, and the pace for the eargasms about to ensue, courtesy of a face-scruncher from Tyler Knapp.
2 ‘How Many’ chews up & swallows the pride we all hold so… proudly.
3 ‘Abraham’ showcases Rusty’s storytelling chops, through a wide-shouldered friend.
4 ‘Shades’ gives Russ his closeup, he’s not hard to find.
5 ‘The Plan’ is a blueprint for doing things your own way (a Mudkid tenet), declaring war, “you farging bastages.”
6 ‘Nitty Gritty’ is just that, a raw track with lyrical exercises from 3 wordsmiths.
I’ll be picking up my hard copy of MKEP at the release party TONIGHT at the Vollrath (118 E. Palmer St.) w/ Emily Wells, which Metromix selected as the #3 Live act of the week (above #6 MC Hammer)
Also, be sure to read the brand new interview with Rusty Redenbacher (by Grey Granite) over at Heavy Gun Blog.

“Been doin’ this ever since I can remember, I’ve been in the funk, knee-deep”
Mr. Kinetik jumps on the Best You Can beat from the ‘Liks (remember mustache-era Pharrell?). K has a few projects in the works with saint R.E.C.ON., Rusty (of the Mudkids) & E. Dot Spencer (listen to his mixtape here). Be prepared for steady material throughout the summer… ADK, suckers.

When I heard K and Russ were recording their own version of Swag Surfin’, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But after one listen at home, one in the car, and one at work, I’m officially riding this wave (pause).
