Substantial & The Other Guys: The Past… [EP]

If you haven’t heard the most recent Substantial project The Past … [EP] produced by The Other Guys, it’s really bangin’! I don’t know if you are more into previewing individual tracks, or if you are a ‘youtube’ person, so here’s both.

The Past… is the first of three EPs from Substantial, produced by HiPNOTT Records producer duo and fellow Maryland natives, The Other Guys, which will lead up to his leading up to his fourth full length album, The Past Is Always Present In The Future, dropping fourth quarter 2015. Besides The Other Guys’ production, the EP features Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, Substantial’s protegé, See King and cuts from DJ Jav.

You can get The Past… [EP] on the usual iTunes, Spotify, DJBooth, etc. BUT purchase the album on Bandcamp and you get a bonus download of Substantial’s 1999 demo tape entitled Before Sunrise: Pre-Hyde Out Demo ’99!  That’s 5 songs on The Past… + 5 songs on the Pre-Hyde Out Demo, for only $5. You can’t beat that.

PHAROAHE MONCH: Lost In Translation [ALBUM STREAM + DOWNLOAD]

Lost-in-Translation-Pharoahe-Monch

Did you know Pharoahe Monch just dropped an album, “Lost In Translation,” available for ‘name your price‘ on his Bandcamp page? I didn’t. Apparently, it is his Valentine’s Day gift to us all, released on Feb 14th and is much appreciated! (Thanks Pharoahe, we didn’t know you cared!)

The project is a retrospective collection of  previously released songs and features from 2000 to 2015, but it does include one new song “Home (HGH)” featuring Phonte’ and Tamisha. “Lost In Translation“ is no joke, also featuring Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Will.I.Am, Mela Machinko, jazz great Robert Glasper and more!

Pharoahe-Monch

The theme of the collection is “Love” of course, hence the Valentine’s Day release date (kinda like MCMI’s “Love Is” mixtape, shameless self-plug). Stream “Lost In Translation” or download it for anything you want to contribute (drop some $, don’t be a moocher! lol). Remember, support the artists whose music you dig, or else don’t complain about what you hear on the radio.

MCMI Report: Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton – Transitions (Interview)

MCMI’s own Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton (STOMP/HYDRA/ThePLAGUE) gives us an exclusive interview on the set of his video shoot for his song “Feels Good”!

Keith MCMI LogoEven though he is a my brother from another mother and fellow recording artist on MCMI Records, it is hard to catch up with Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton these days!! When he is in New York, he is locked in the studio, creating, recording, mixing almost 24/7. Between back and forth trips to Japan to promote his album, video and photo shoots – the man stays busy! So at a recent video shoot for his song “Feels Good,” off of his upcoming album “TRANSITIONS“, I asked him some questions, to give the fans some info on his music, his life and his new project. Here is a snippet of it. Click “Read More” to go to the full interview.

Follow: GMS | Keith ‘WildChild’ Middleton | MCMI #Transitions

GMS: Most people know you from STOMP, the musical, producing and rapping for HYDRA and The PLAGUE, but you are working on this incredible Spoken Word album now, that many people did not even know about. How did that come about?

Keith: I always kept my poetry on the low. It’s private. I had played with blending it with my original music for years with aspirations of completing an album but never went further than the thought. Jan 15th 2008 12:15pm was the car wreck that became the game changer. From my Hospital bed I vowed to complete my album and live my life to the fullest! Thank Goodness for the second chance.

GMS: This album is being simultaneously released in the US and overseas in Japan. You’ve been getting a lot of support from Japanese radio and been doing performances in Japan. How did you develop your Japanese audience?

Keith: A great friend of mine / manager in Japan, Ayumi Hoshikawa, has been instrumental in introducing me to radio stations, musicians, venues, festivals and just good people in general. She’s awesome.

GMS: Having been an MC and cast member of STOMP for many years, you are no stranger to the stage or the mic, but this time you are performing your poetry. Does it feel different? How does that compare with your past experiences?

Keith: It’s more frightening because in STOMP there are no words and it’s an ensemble. Now it’s just me sharing my truths. So I am literally exposed and leaving myself open. (more…)
