Just back from havin’ an absolutely rejuvenating and incredibly inspiring past few days up in North England= Sheffield & Liverpool with my bredren @blackbeaconsoundintl.
So, we recorded two improvisational freestyle rap albums in Sheffield (in the Black Beacon record store bassment like it was 1992 on Telegraph Ave.), built heavy with my bredren Thatmanmonkz & friends, at a couple DJing gigs Toby & Benny Maths Goulsano had poppin off in the college-town side of Sheffield. Hit a couple all-night-into-the-morning raves & after the after-party parties (believe me, Sheffield goes HAaaaaaARD on the techno/house dance scenes).
Last day=yesterday, we hit the always enchanting Liverpool’s live radio scene at Melodic Distraction to celebrate the release of the new Zen The Sharpshooter album (now available on Black Beacon Sound), wound up having an enthralling hour long chat/performance/reading on Melodic Distraction’s live radio (you can check that out below, when you hit play on the video below) read a couple new poems focused on Artificial Intelligence and A.I. Artists then did a completely improvised/freestyled/automatic rappin’ cypher on-air while looking out the window getting inspired by the Liverpool streets, rapping at & with the curious pedestrians looking through the window at us perform through the window like an Amsterdam street-aquarium, or something… “Hey mom, look at those bioluminescent Rapper-fishes & DJ fishes”
Needless to say, had a Maaaaaaaaaad inspiring 3 days up North!
Massive Thanks Black Beacon Sound & all the fam’ in Sheffield & Liverpool for a reverberating & endlessly inspiring 3 days & 2 endless nights in The North 😉
Fully recharged & eager to explore some new new creative movements.
Dig the improvisations below & cop the new Zen The Sharpshooter album ASAP.
(P.S. the sound doesn’t start until maybe 48 minutes in, then it don’t let up! Will have the link up for the streamable podcast/broadcast sooner than soon [the sound’ll be all in on that one]). Links for the new ZenTheSharpshooter album will be posted then as well.
