The Harvest Moon

The harvest moon is coming. This is my lane, in every actual sense. I talk too much and want to say more with less, as I’ve said over and over and over again, so let the music play. I have lost all my words.

Poolside – Harvest Moon by Poolside Music

Cassandra Wilson “Harvest Moon” (Blue Note, 1996)

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance tonight
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

Happy Birthday Michael Jackson

Happy birthday to Michael Jackson – still to this day probably the greatest performer that ever walked the planet. I remember vividly the day that he died… I was in Calgary to do a show at one of my favorite spots on the planet, Hi Fi Club. News started streaming in that MJ had become sick, and as the hours passed, the story got darker and more ominous. When it was finally confirmed that he had left this planet, I walked out of my hotel room, leaving a broken Twitter and Facebook and a screaming CNN behind. I was in a daze. How could it be that Michael Jackson was dead? He was superhuman. He was a deity. MJ was a cultural constant, someone whom I felt as if I had grown up with, and whom it seemed I would grow old with.

That night at the club, I was planning on doing a set of the raps and the club musics but at the very last minute, I scrapped all my plans and decided to go in with an unscripted all MJ set. What I thought was going to be just a handful of joints ended up being the entire night, over 2+ hours of hits, rarities, collabos etc… The night went way past the recording here, early into the morning while the doors were locked and people continued to dance to The King Of Pop. Here’s the mix, hosted by my folks at Mad Decent.

Sheen Bros Behind The Scenes

I’ve gotten some resounding feedback on the Sheen Bros “It’s So Hot” music video and I want to thank everyone for their love and support. Now, as an added bonus, my man DJ Red Lox blessed me with these two exclusive “behind the scenes” videos of us during the film shoot. As most people in the business know, it’s a whole lot of “hurry up and wait” and these clips kind of show how that can actually be fun sometimes.
