Infinito 2017 - From Inside Self Living to Please Me (Fixed With Tape)
During a visit to Los Angles California this summer I took time to really embrace my life long journey through inner peace. It was somewhere near Big Bear in route to LA, I started seeing my Hip Hop music in carefully considered sections of careful sound inside time arrangements. Creating from my life as an African cultured artist painter of multidisciplinary concentrations I began to tape together multiple memories from my time living on the west coast. My self is constantly creating my ideas from my experiences of ongoing Black awareness as a discipline a way of life, drawings, lectures conversation. The distance between black people and others in this part of the world. Knowing my past life living mostly Midwest, South and the eastern seaboard of America. Living out west slows down significantly and keeps relevant reminders of how this black life is so segregated separated from similar likeness of the soul. My art and music is only from a black center of education so not seeing or constantly having the ability to embrace and love on my family like I do in South Chicago, West Philadelphia and Memphis I’m totally in love with myself in a singular format working inside racist restrictions thoughts I teach continuously to write love of self and kindred in this music drawing from a time I lived in Atlanta Georgia where I began to record exclusively by myself without outside assistance just the ideas from the music. Last year my father passed away from years of suffering inside colonized confusion, from his death I saw what I have lived, knew and taught by him is that we are alone and all we really have is our life as an expression to share. Compositions are constructed from various producers from all parts of the world with different vantage points or logics. But mostly the assistance of Dion Brown who is always easy to graft from because of the frequent delivery of new material for me to write to is always in my email because of our work together with Joe Left Hand Records. But I received a few productions from my cousin Fatnice as well as beats from Japans Illsugi and Brazil’s NeNe James as a way to construct from duration intervals. The audio transmission began to take shape after I returned from Los Angles to my residence in Arizona where I collect and design new ideas to record, integrate and develop ultrasound analog soundwaves. Using myself as the complete reference source I never run out of ideas and since life is present I, we, us owe ourselves the respect to create in an infinite reality. Being mindful to never follow trends or please anyone outside of myself I put together a long player I named, From Inside Myself Living to Please Me (Fixed with Tape). Recorded In Phoenix, AZ Featuring Ahhgothis. Production from Dion Brown, Fatnice, Illsugi, Ml7102, NeNe James.
