TRUTHLiVE – The Unlearning

19 02 2010

This right here is my man Evan Phillips aka TRUTHLiVE.  We’ve partied together and done parties together.  He and his former partner were part of a local talent showcase I put together back a few years back. He was always a big supporter of mine and me of him.  Let me say one thing about this man.  He is a hustler!  He has always been on his grind and always told me that he would be successful and I knew he spoke the truth.  Mad skills and intelligence  complete the package.  Read about and check out the tracks from my friend below and cop his album when it comes out.

The Song:

Continuing to build on the early buzz of his recently leaked “Shoot Me Down,” TRUTHLiVE is proud to bring fans “Tormented Genius,” the second leak off his upcoming free EP, The UnLearning. For the track, TRUTHLiVE teams up with producer Martin SLO and DJ Tonytone who provide the musical foundation for his confident rhymes. “Like a lot of my music, this song is a challenge of the status quo,” explains TRUTHLiVE. “While a lot of my music has similar thematic subtleties, this particular track is me speaking about what comes naturally and easy to me, and how those things sometimes seems complex or difficult for others to relate.” TRUTHLiVE proves his point to a tee, rapping, “…they must not get it though, my brain works in rhymes/ My trying to flow is like the sun trying to shine/ I guess you could say I bring light to lines/ And in due time then bring life to minds”

As Martin SLO’s funk chops and driving bass line pushes the song forward, DJ Tonytone pulls the track together with deft scratches, the perfect compliment to TRUTHLiVE’s rhymes. TRUTHLiVE says, “The cuts are the perfect icing to an already flavorful and funky cake.” The Unlearning, which will be offered as a free download in the coming weeks, is the precursor to TRUTHLiVE’s forthcoming album, Patience, and features production by Tha Bizness, who have worked with 50 Cent and Lil’ Wayne, as well astracks crafted by The ARE, Vitamin D, J-Zone, and TRUTHLiVE himself.

TRUTHLiVE’s full-length debut album Patience, produced entirely by Jake One, will be available April 20, 2010 via Interdependent Media.

The Background:

Evan “TRUTHLiVE” Phillips, owner and founder of Interdependent Media, has certainly made his mark in the music industry with his wide range of talents. As an emcee, DJ, entrepreneur, and artist, TRUTHLiVE has had his hands in everything from a very young age. After a traumatic adolescent period where his health was at risk, three heart surgeries proved the artist to be quite a fighter. He explains to his new listeners, “The name TRUTHLiVE doesn’t mean that I’m proclaiming myself as the truth, end-all be-all; it’s more of a reminder to myself on how to conduct my life and career.” The MC best summates, “My music is my truth and my life.” That meaningful music will arrive on April 20th in the form of Patience, TRUTHLiVE’s debut release, courtesy of Bay Area label Interdependent Media.

2 Elite Force Mixes **HOT**

18 02 2010

2 Hot mixes from Elite Force here. 1 being the heat that he always brings in his mixes and the other being somewhat different. The first is a mix for Annie Nightingale’s BBC Radio 1 show. It contains an exclusive new Zodiac Cartel mix of Tai – Powerchords. The other mix is where Simon was asked to “‘use at least 10 of you all-time favourite tracks from any genre in a 10-minute mix”. After listening to this mix I’d say he has excellent taste. Much props for droppin one of my favorite Joy Division songs in this mix!

Also included is a video that Elite Force made of a recent show he did in Lithuania with Meat Katie.  It  is soundtracked by ‘M.A.D.’ which is also in the mix below.

Papalote vs Bobby Flay

15 02 2010

Do you know who Bobby Flay is?  He is an Iron Chef and host of several shows on the Food Network here in the United States.   One of his shows is called “Throwdown”.  The premise is Chef Flay goes around the country and challenges chefs to a battle usually regarding their signature dish. 

One of my old DJ partners, DJ Mr. E (Miguel Escobedo) and his brother, comedian Victor Escobedo own a couple of very successful taquerias  name “Papalote” here in San Francisco.  Bobby Flay came and issued a throwdown challenge to Papalote.  It was a burrito throwdown.  Papalote has a signature burrito (my favorite) called “The Triple Threat” paying homage to the Triple Threat DJs (Apollo, Shotkut and Vinroc). It has beef, chicken and prawns.   The episode will air this WendesdayFebruary 17th at 9pm.  Please tune in to watch the battle  if you get the Food Network. Be sure to stop by one of the restaurants if you are in San Francisco and check out some of  Mr.E’s mixes over at mixcrate.com

 Below is a promo video that Papalote made for their 10 year anniversay.  Enjoy.
