ANALOGUE MONSTA – TIME TO (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Filed under: Electronic, music, music video | Tags: , ,

We knew something was up as soon as we heard the first “analogue monsta mix” way back in 2011. Since I hold both Tokimonsta and Suzi Analogue in high esteem … I am not surprised their first collaborative effort turned out so well.  Suzi’s NNXTAPE is still on very heavy rotation and Tokimonsta’s “Darkest Dim” still has this surreal feel to it, that makes you want to listen to it over and over again. Needless to say I am anxious to hear a lot more from  Anologue Monsta, a merge of two ladies with their own distinctive take on electronic music.

I have to say that the blend of undividual styles is more accessible  than the electronic composition Suzi Analogue and Tokimonsta come up with when they produce solo.  But maybe that is because I only have this track to go on. The thing is that you’ll find that in this case accessability does not mean it ain’t totally fresh …

Almost forgot to remind ya’ll to cop the latest Georgia Anne Muldrow  “Seeds”. Produced by Madlib there was 99.9 percent change this release would turn out to be a musical master piece. The blend of the slightly diverse aproach to music of Georgia Anne Muldrow and Madlib turned out to be a stroke of genius. The result is absolutely worthy of a spin.

Jennifer Lee a.k.a Tokimonsta has finally released a video for the standout track from last years “Creature Dreams EP” … “Darkest Dim”. Both the L.A. beatsmith,Tokimonsta and Gavin Turek, the girl who does the dreamy vocals are featured in the video. With the help of director Doug Chang a  3.26 minute dream adventure is created.

The story is that Tokimonsta (The Dream Curator) carefully manages the playlist of Gavin Turek’s (The Sleeper) dreams throughout the night using her grippers. When Tokimonsta accidentally breaks a dream card in half using her hand, she discovers a newfound possibility of remixing broken pieces of dream cards together to deliver Gavin the most beautiful dream she ever had.

You can find each and every possible detail of the video on darkestdim.blogspot.com ….

RE:GENERATION : MARK RONSON FEAT. MRS BADU & YASIIN BEY- A LA MODELISTE (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Okay this is the sh* Noggy’s talking about!!

Hyuandai Veloster presents the RE:GENENRATION project. The project follows DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method as they remix, recreate and re-imagine five traditional styles of music. From the classical perfection of the Berklee Symphony Orchestra to the bayou jams of New Orleans jazz, the five distinctive DJs collaborate with some of today’s biggest musicians to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

First up one of my favorites … Mark Ronson. It’s obvious he took his task very seriously cause he is hitting us up with supreme quality music. In collaboriaton with Erykah Badu, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Trombone Shorty and The Dap Kings he brings us “A la Modeliste”, a comtemperary blues track that will have clapping your hands and stomping your feet in no time.

Needless to say I am looking forward to more visuals of the RE:GENERATION project.



ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT FT. MUSIQ SOULCHILD & CHRISETTE MICHELLE – AH YEAH by Noggy

I’ve already blogged two audio streams of  The Robert Glasper Experiments upcoming album “Black Radio” on @Noggy73 … but to make sure that  Strangefruit readers are in the know … you can stream the first visual of the album below. For  more info on the album I suggest you hit up the Robert Glasper website.

The tracklist and the audiostreams featuring King and Erykah Badu are tangible proof that “Black Radio” is not only the music must-have of 2012 (eventhough it just started) but also a modern classic ..

Yep it looks like the 28th of February 2012 will be a beautiful day in music history.



JESSE BOYKINS – ZONER (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Damnnn what is not to love about Jesse Boykins the III. His never ending creativity brings us the video for “Zoner” from the FreeEp Way of a Wayfarer.

If despite the beautiful visuals and Jesse’s warm soothing voice, like me,  you are still wondering what a “Zoner” is.  Team Boykins offers the following explanation … There is a misconception when one is lost in themselves because society can miss the truth behind it. This video is a pure introduction to Jesse Boykins III’s soul and takes a piece of his mind and displays it for the world be a part of. There is the reality of being alone, but also the desire to lust for something that inspires and assists the creation of beauty, a Zoner.

Can’t help it … now I love him even more …

Meet Sherry Dyanne, the girl most Dutch people know for her stunning Erykah Badu imitation on a Duth Television show called “de soundmix show”. Sherry Dyanne has come a long way since then. She has been touring with Micheal Franti and has been on stage with Benjamin Herman and Leon Ware.

With her remarkable Billie Hollidayish voice she will bring us some new stuff and some revamped old stuff. Curious about her sound? Stream the video below.

If you happen to be in Amsterdam (Netherlans) on the 3th of December. Get your but over to People’s Place, Stadhouderskade 5 …for the CD release party.

Damnnn I am ashamed to say … that this is my very first Peter Hadar post. This is truly strange cause I’ve been keepin an eye on this artist …like forever.

Peters’s music is described as a salacious mix of Soul R&B, Electronica, and Experimental flavor. To me his RnB sounds somewhat unusual in a good way. His EP named ‘Take Off Victoria’ is in the works and of course Noggy will keep an eye on that for you. Curious?? … click play and stream his sensuous video below.

Hardcore Common fans are probably already in tha know but to make sure everybody knows …. Common has a new album coming out in December of 2011. Yesterday the video for the track “Blue Sky”  his latest single dropped. 

Even though ” Blue Sky” sounds decent, I kinda hope the rest  of The Dreamer/The Believer sounds less commercial. Common just sounds way better when his (usually uplifting)  lyrics are accompanied by a tune with an underground feel …

Erykah Badu by Zigbone

When it comes to timing I would have to say that Mrs Badu is on point. Cause just when she kinda slipped my mind … she hits me up with a brand new video for  “Out of My Mind just in time(part 2) taken from New Amerykah Part Two.

Most interesting detail about this video is that it was directed by Georgia Anne Muldrow

P.S. if you missed out of my mind just in time part 1
