Luv Luv Movement by DJ Malachi

Category:podcasts -- posted at: 4:12pm UTC

Fly Gypsy From Russia to Jamaica. The much talked-about new hip-hop duo Fly Gypsy made its first splash in late 2008 with an election-themed single that introduced the duo’s energetic, guitar-driven sound to music fans around the world and scored the duo its first TV and radio spots. The group formally launched in July 2009 with a release of the summertime single “You.” The video for the single was shot in Jamaica by Ras Kassa, acclaimed for his work with Sean Paul, Beenie Man, and Damian Marley. 

Kowboy Kom, the group’s vocalist, moved from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Brooklyn, New York with his family when he was still a child. Growing up in New York during the golden era of Hip-Hop, Kom was inspired by hip-hop artists of West Indian descent coming up in Brooklyn, such as Wyclef Jean, Busta Rhymes, and Notorious B.I.G. When he was in the seventh grade, Kom began to write poetry and rhyme. By his early twenties, Kom rose to become one of the nation’s best recognized spoken word artists and emcees, praised for his clever storytelling, signature style, and natural swagger. He has headlined numerous college tours, appeared on BET J, and opened for artists such as Jill Scott, Dwele, and Doug E. Fresh.

Kom stands apart from other emcees in his preference for performing with a live band, rather than just a DJ. A true musician, who himself plays guitar and dabbles in piano, Kom has an intimate understanding of music and infuses his flow with musicality seldom seen in modern hip-hop.

Alexei, the duo’s producer and its one-man band, grew up on stage, dancing and performing music. Born and raised in Russia during the tumultuous years of the Soviet Union’s collapse, Alexei began playing piano and dancing when he was only six. When he was eight, his parents bought the family’s first double-deck boombox and within a few weeks, Alexei was selling mixtapes in his elementary school.

In his teens, Alexei came to the United States as an exchange student and later returned to attend college. Moving to Washington, D.C. after college, Alexei quickly established himself as a prolific songwriter, a gifted producer, and a dynamic DJ, earning airplay on the country’s top R&B stations. Alexei’s unique production style reflects his diverse musical influences. He seemlessly moves from bopping his head to Lauryn Hill and singing along with Sting to ripping Nirvana on his guitar and playing an Ella Fitzgerald love song on piano. In his production, Alexei prefers to build tracks from scratch, playing keys, guitars, bass, and percussion himself rather than relying on samples.

Daisha Graf: Starry Eyed Surprise
Daisha Michelle Graf was born in Columbia, Maryland where the arts played a significant role in her development. From a very early age she began training in all different disciplines of dance including ballet, modern, tap and jazz. At the age of 5 she began taking private piano lessons and was involved in school chorus and plays. Daisha knew at a young are that she had a passion for performing and would sing and dance in front of her family with a fake microphone in hand. Daisha grew up with music playing throughout ther household and was pleasantly exposed to all different types of sounds ranging from Bach to the Beatles, Jazz, international music and Motown. Nurtured by summer arts camps in music and prestigious dance programs such as The Ailey School in New York City and American Dance Festival at Duke University, her dream of becoming an artist grew into an insatiable need. 
Daisha continued her training by receiving a BA in Dance from Hofstra University (Long Island, NY). While in school she performed with the student organization, Imani Dance Ensemble, and was immediately taken by the world of hip-hop. She would catch the train to Manhattan several times a week to take classes from recognized hip-hop choreographers such as Rhapsody James, Luam Keflezgy and Jermaine Brown and became a member of Rhapsody The Company. 
Music had always been a part of Daisha’s life, and dance was the perfect medium for exposing her to the professional music industry. Even before graduating, Daisha landed her first big dance engagement with pop star, Rihanna for her European tour of “A Girl Like Me”. When she returned, she signed with the agency, Clear Talent Group and continued performing with world-renowned artists such as Diddy, Ryan Leslie, Chris Willis and Beyonce. She also had the opportunity to dance in the blockbuster hits, Step Up 2 and Step up 3D. 
Surrounded by the music industry, a new love for singing and writing music resurfaced. Under the tutelage of vocal trainers, Craig Derry and Clurel Henderson, Daisha honed her craft and shaped her sound and style. Writing and recording her first song, “Love Set Me Free,” confirmed that being a musical artist would be more than a hobby – it would be her life’s work. With a strong work ethic and a naturally captivating stage presence, Daisha has already performed her music at various venues in New York City and in Trinidad opening for artist Annya-Li. She has a unique style that she coins, “alternative R&B,” a sound that combines soul, jazz and alternative music. Daisha’s talent continues to grow, as does her infinite love of music. She is excited about the future before her.

Akoma Aya: Creolite urbaine feat Afrosoulicious
Depuis quelques années une certaine musique fait son come back en France en douceur mais de manière certaine : la « SOUL ». Elle est arrivée essentiellement par le biais de concerts. Des évènements dans lesquels une pléiade d’artistes Français ont pu être découverts pour former au fil du temps ce qu’il est devenu légitime d’appeler « La Scène Soul Française ». Parce que SOULISSIME est le premier label entièrement dédié à cette musique, il se devait de réaliser la première compilation « Officielle » téléchargeable gratuitement. Cette compilation réunie une grande partie des artistes de cette scène avec un tracklisting conséquent de 19 titres. On y retrouve des inédits d’artistes dont on attendait des nouvelles comme Jango Jack,  Sandy Cossett et Monsieur Nov, des découvertes comme Sabrina Adel, Leslie Phillips ou bien encore Shad Murray mais aussi des titres extraits des albums de Third Shot, Erik, Freddy, Rony avec le titre « J’me dis » remixé pour l’occasion. La compilation laisse aussi une place à des artistes Hip Hop/Soul qui évoluent dans le même univers que ces chanteurs avec des artistes comme Kohndo qui s’offre un featuring avec Dwele et le D3CCPT avec Sly Johnson (Saïan Supa Crew). Une compilation à posséder absolument pour tous les amoureux de la soul…

Akoma Aya

Akoma Aya est un duo féminin de la scène Néo soul parisienne composé d'amies d'enfance et artistes exceptionnelles, Mayi, poète/slammeuse/chanteuse et Sissy, chanteuse/choriste.
Oui, leur musique caresse l'âme et les tympans de chaque personne qui l'écoute. Une caresse. Une claque aussi. Une claque audiovisuelle et émotionnelle. Ce duo Slam/Soul est une véritable alchimie, sa musique est imprégnée de beauté, de sincérité et d'authenticité.
Eté 2008, c'est sur la scène de l'Etage que nous la découvrons. Première claque, elle est visuelle; Mayi et Sissy sont tout simplement belles. Elles apparaissent telles deux reines d'Afrique, deux reines urbaines qui interprètent leur art avec leurs tripes. Deuxième claque: auditive. Leur musique ne ressemble à aucune autre : authenticité, originalité et technicité. Elles chantent ''Guéris", nous sommes conquis. Les yeux humides, nous venons de prendre une troisième claque. Emotionnelle. C'est sur le titre "Art Organique'' que nos larmes ont coulé. La musique d'Akoma Aya parle aux âmes. Le message est bien passé.

Le duo prépare actuellement leur premier album et recherche un label. En attendant, je vous invite (et vous conseille vivement même) à découvrir certains de leurs titres comme le très troublant "Poésie" ou encore le très poignant "Voyage d'une Flamme" (Et ça se passe là :
Akoma Aya se produit régulièrement sur scène, toutes les dates sont sur leur space :

Yeah, that's this mix and we want your feedback.

Fantastic Planet: Adrenalin forlovers of jazz...

Soil & "Pimp" Sessions are known for their wild live performances and unique style of jazz, punk rock, and funk fusion. With the new album Planet Pimp hitting stores this week and generating great critical acclaim, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions are poised to take over the United States' alternative, club, fusion, and contemporary jazz scenes as they did in their native Japan. The Londonist aptly called it "just what jazz needs right now: an operation to remove all that’s outdated, and a much-needed adrenalin shot in the arm.”

Wade 3: Right Now (the video)
In every generation, an artist emerges whose innovation and cutting edge style changes the face of music by combining different genres, taking music in a new direction. Ray Charles did it in the 1950’s and 60’s, merging R&B with gospel to create soul, along with Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix who both added a psychedelic edge to their soul, funk, rock, and blues. Prince and Rick James turned the trick in the 1980’s, incorporating new wave and punk in their funk and soul. In this era,Wade3 appears ready to be that innovative artist that will blaze a new trail in music in the 2K.

For bookings/interviews Contact:
Julian Williams

Armed with a varied array of soulful compositions recorded with some of the world's most prolific producers, David Mensah, UK singer songwriter is set to wow audiences when he takes to the stage to perform tracks from his upcoming Debut album.

David's music has already clocked up over 100,000 hits on which is one of the reasons he was choosen from thousands of artists to be featured on the myspace homepage.

He has not wasted the opportunity to learn and develop as an artist working and performing alongside legendary artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Alexander O'Neal, Shola Ama, Damage, Billy Ocean, Ruby Turner and Roachford to name a few.

April 2008 saw the release of “Food of Love” as Mensah joined forces with legendary artists such as the 30 million record selling Billy Ocean, Junior Giscombe, Ruby Turner, Roland Gift, Janet Kay, Tasmin Archer, and Roachford to name a few. They came together to produce an album called “Wilberforce 200, Change is Gonna Come” celebrating 200 years since the abolition of slavery. Proceeds of the album are going towards charities, Save the Children, Freetown Society and the Prince's Trust to stamp out modern day forms of slavery.

Mensah recently recorded the song “Close to My Roots” with the long-time Roc-A-Fella lieutenant, Memphis Bleek who featured on Jay-Z's debut album. “Close to My Roots” is the title track for a project put together by top US producer Coptic who rose to global success with records produced with Biggy, P.Diddy, Snoop Dog, Faith Evans, Bobby Valentino, Trey Songs, Memphis Bleek, Black Rob, Ludacris and Ice Cube.

Hassanah and Big Brooklyn Red

Sorry for the delay....this hiatus was not planned. My laptop was stolen out of my hotel room back in January! Can you believe it? First the appendectomy, then the theft. What was upsetting about the laptop was the hotel staff gave a complete stranger access to my room. Yeah, while I was out checking out the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, someone was in my room jamming to all the great music and videos I had amassed over time. It's been about five weeks and still, no settlement from the hotel. Needless to say, I won't stay with that chain again. Where did I stay? I thought you'd never ask!  or

Turns out I was the victim of  scam targeting foreign tourists. My personal information was given to an outsider who proceeds to "check in" to my room. No identification is necessary as long as the name and room number are presented by the person requesting access. Even though the staff member admitted that she neglected to verify identification and I lost over $6,000 worth of music, programs, photos, and other persoanl items, Accor Hotels and Ibis Hotels have not compensated me in my loss. I'm telling everyone this so they will be aware of the scams, the lack of security, the negligence of the staff, and most of all, so you can better protect yourself from being in such a predicament. How much is your identity worth? What's the price to pay for allowing someone into your hotel room? Think about it!


On a brighter note, we come back to the music. Hassanah continues to shine and her new tracks are now on iTunes and at! Remember Hassanah? Download this gem with her and Big Brooklyn Red and then be sure to holla back at me. Much more to come, sorry for the delay.

2009: The Year of Kim Arrington

I want to wish everyone the most possible and prosperous of a year to come. It's fun to set your sights and to accomplish said goals! I like to predict what others will achieve as well. Set your ears and eyes on a dazzling musician named Kim Arrington. She will quickly become one of your favorites and I hope you remember COA said so.

My good friend Nat Harris from London turned me on to Kim's lovely sound. During my recent recovery from emergency surgery, it was Kim's music that helped ease my pain. Kim has performed for thousands of people and her debut cd, available everywhere, is titled

First Love Note of Kim Arrington. I hope you delight in it half as much as myself and that her sweet sound finds rotation in your music library. Here is one of the gems from her album, the single track "Front Door". Thanks for hanging in there with me and be sure to spread the word. 2009 is gonna be an excellent year.

Your Friend,
