Just in time for Valentine’s Day, MCMI Records flagship group HYDRA has pulled the gem “Love Isâ€¦”out of the vault to share with the world. The subject matter of “Love Is…”is not new, but is the groupâ€™s spin on what love of their craft means to them. Sampling the 1973 hit by MFSBÂ “Love is the Message”, Wild Child, the producer of the group, crafts an energetic track that the trio flow effortlessly on.
To further the message, the other two members of HYDRA, GMS and LR Blitzkrieg, have put together The â€œLOVE ISâ€¦Mixtapeâ€, compiling various songs on the love of music, that will be available for free download soon, including many Hip Hop classics as well as a few surprises.
The song “Love Is …”can be found on MCMI.Bandcamp.com. Download for free if you want, or pay any amount and show us what love is! (see what I did there?)
MCMI recording artist Keith “Wild Child” Middleton was interviewed by 106 & Park’s Terrence & Rocsi, as the cast of STOMP performed on the show this past Thursday. You can tell from the cheers the audience loved him, but at the end Terrence got everybody’s name except for the guy he was interviewing … Keith! [Correction: He had already introduced him before the interview, but it's not on the online video post. My bad. - G]
When he is not STOMP-ing all over the world, from New York to Japan to Africa to Brazil, Keith “Wild Child” Middleton records for MCMI Records with his Hip Hop group HYDRA and his crew The Plague, as well as his own solo jazz-fusion Spoken Word projects. You can also find him playing Djembe at the legendary house party “Funkbox” (DJ TONY TOUCH) and the Hip Hop/RnB/Soul/House/Reggae mash up “Brooklyn Delight” (DJ DP ONE & DJ PEACE). Dat boy got talent!
Music fromÂ the Wild Child’s spoken word project, as well as music from HYDRA and The Plague will be dropping later this year. You can catch him most nights in STOMP at the Orpheum Theater in NY.
This looks to be muy bueno. Featuring MCMI’s ownÂ Special Guest Percussionist: Wild Child (STOMP / HYDRA / MCMI Records) + DJ PEACE (Good Life Crew) + DP ONE (Heavy Hitters / Turntable Anihilists), this is the place to be Friday night, if you live in New York.
Friday, Sept. 30thÂ @ DeityÂ 368 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY (Btwn. Hoyt St. & Bond St.). 21+. 11pm-4am. Ladies free until midnight. $10 Admission.
