Moovmnt Radio Show #3

Radio

Yesterday we had a blast recording Moovmnt Radio show #3 at Studio 80 Radio on my birthday. I turned 35 and invited Darker Than Wax representative LA-NO to join us in the studio to drop a little set.

Yes I pre-recorded this one at home, because I know I was not going to be able to make any sense. LA-NO’s party (Pop Ya Collar) was off the hook and hit the bottle hard. It gave us a chance to have some heartfelt conversations and even the homies Blue and Michiel from Shourai stopped by. Big up the Deluge, Sherisa and lil’ Seji for coming through and being true friends.

We played some exclusive cuts from Dizz1, Jordan Rakei and Tetsuro Fujimoto and lots more incredible new music. This show was basically about hanging out, talking music and having fun. Forgive us for not delivering the usual witty comments, you might have grown accustomed to. We promise to guide you through our next musical journey in April. Hope you’ll have as much fun listening to this as we had recording it.

DrewsThatDude is a multi-platinum, Grammy nominated, producer. He’s probably also one of the realest guys you’ll ever meet. I recently had the chance to catch up with him. We talked about the tweet heard round the world, his first recording related job, major influences and a hell of a lot more. Lifetime’s about to write a screenplay to this interview. Check it below:

Pacific Shore No Distance Between Us
25.03.15

Pacific Shore is an audiovisual enterprise from Stanley Bloom and Mike Ro Wave. Born in 2012 after a Californian road trip, the Parisian duo released their self-titled album. We supported them since day one, so when their second “Beyond The Mist” album dropped last year, we were more than happy to premiere the track “Street Confusion“. Their sophomore album and short film tells a modern epic tale. Set on the enchanting island of Madeira, through the eyes and voice of Sarah Linhares.

Fast Forward to the present day, it is almost time for Pacific Shore to release their third EP entitled “No Distance Between Us“. Once more their soulful jazzy sound finds a good home on French imprint Cosmonostro and sees it’s release April 6th. Again it’s an honor for us to premiere the title track of this release and we urge you to place your pre-orders now.

As our ‘Werk Space’ adventures unfold, we are having more and more fun every time. Now peep 22-year-old AJ Beats, who represents the city Enschede.

AJ came down from to the Red Bull Studios Amsterdam to work on a serious Funk banger. He started out about 4 years ago producing Hip-Hop beats, but surely evolved his sound more towards Funk-laced beats. This guy is no stranger to drumming. AJ Beats used to have a drum set with 2 snare drums in his room and you hear that in the way he programs his drums.

Under the radar Gerson Rafael from Rotterdam came through to lace some silky vocals. The track remains untitled for now, but will become available on the Red Bull Studios Soundcloud page next week.

jr & ph7 chuuwee
24.03.15

Let us give you the update on JR & PH7. The German production duo, known for their hard knocking boom bap Hip-Hop beats, join forces with Sacramento emcee Chuuwee. The collaborative album “The South Sac Mack” is the result.

The album is clearly dedicated to the 916 and a handful of tracks are even named after neighborhoods throughout Sactown. Chuuwee gives the listener a first-person narrative and makes you experience the capital city of California in a way you might have never imagined. On the production side JR & PH7 keep it really sunny and fresh by using lots of 70′s and 80′s samples.

Clearly the collaboration between these guy was very organic and this one particular track featuring Blu stood out immediately. So I think it’s only right we add “DueYuu” to this post and tell you to head over to iTunes to check out the rest.

Natureboy Flako
23.03.15

It’s hard to ignore a force of nature like Flako. For many years the German Chilean, who now resides in London, has amazed us with genre transcending stuff. On his latest “Natureboy” album, which released earlier today, he stuns us once more.

Such intriguing sounds, mesmorizing harmonies and collaborational partners such as Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and his alter ego Dirg Gerner. With each music project it seems Flako grows and develops himself so much, maturing into an inhuman being perhaps. He no longer makes music, he has become a storyteller of magical tales from the the beyond.

On our last radio show we played “The Odd Beautiful”, but there are so many gems on Natureboy really. Honorable mentions go to “Spice Melange”, “Twelve O’Clock Shadow”, “Lyrebird” and “With Me Now”. You’d be a fool not to get this album, but just for those in doubt…get this on iTunes now!

Workers Abraham Blue Something Else
22.03.15

Meet Workers, a duo from France, consisting of Be Dar (Paris) & Sear Cabe (Nantes). This weekend they unleashed their debut “Knowledges” EP onto the world and it’s dat crack.

The first and main song entitled “Something Else” features Abraham Blue from Antwerp and is on sum next level niceness. Straight vibin’ to this all the way to the bank and back. I guess we should feel lucky this weekend, since Workers are giving away this EP as a free download. You bet this just made our weekend fellas!

Keep your eyes on on Workers and watch out for Abraham Blue, because I’ve heard he is getting ready to drop something hot & heavy on a pretty big label.

Gravez
19.03.15

Now we at Moovmnt have never been into one genre, so at times you will hear some Trap-inspired music on here. Rest assure that when we introduce you to a guy like Gravez, we do it due to the fact this person has been smashin’ it lately!

We have been keeping an eye on this producer out of Atlanta for a minute and his latest “Sole” EP is on sum next sh*t. For those unaware, Gravez has been signed with HW&W and we are hoping a full album is in the works. Just get a load of the track “Red Lotus” with 16-year-old producer Oshi from London, who has been making equally as much noise. Another fine piece of music is the song “All Yours” featuring another Brit, who goes by the name of OZZIE.

If you ask me the EP contains four dope tracks, so if Gravez ever decides to put these up for sale you will want to cop.
