“Center Of The World” on Beating Heart compilation

From the ‘Beating Heart – Malawi’ album, available at http://lnk.to/oYQz0So

Each 1500 albums sold will feed a school of 500 children forever.

When Hugh Tracey (1903-1977) made 35,000 field recordings across Sub-Saharan Africa between the 1920s & 1970s, his intention was to reveal the beauty and complexity of the music to a world that saw little value in it. Building on Tracey’s vision, the income generated will be used to assist people in the areas where the music was originally recorded.

Premiere: Kate Simko & LEO “Tilted” (Troxler & Moffa Remix)

In a time where thousands of new tracks come out every day, it is refreshing to see someone approach electronic music from the perspective of a true orchestrator and composer; not many other collaborators send us a manuscript to accompany the remix parts. Props to Kate and her orchestra for their amazing work on the new album. Here’s a remix Seth and I did for the 12″.

 

 

Soundview – The Method

Soundview is a group consisting of The Martinez Brothers, Jesse Calosso and myself. Our first record is “The Method”, which is about our jam-session recording process, and is out now on Tuskegee. This record is dedicated to the memory of our friend, the legendary promoter Rob Fernandez, whose immeasurable influence in our city will be felt for years to come. He is the catalyst for this project coming together, introducing us at a gig almost 10 years ago. RIP to the King of NY.
