Interview with Pharrell Williams & NASA Astronaut Leland Melvin


We shot this last weekend– it’s an interview with musicitrepreneur Pharrell Williams and NASA astronaut Leland Melvin at an event in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The event, sponsored by Pharrell’s charitable organization, From One Hand to Another, was “designed to encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies and careers.” For more information about the event and STEM, read the NASA press release available here.

Theophilus London – I Want You (mixtape)

I heard a lot about Throphilus London but never took the time to acquire his music to take an ear bath in. His third mixtape, titled “I Want You” dropped a few days ago and after a little spash I can conclude that it is dope. The entire last three decades of the 1900’s are represented with the best, in my opinion, being the late 80’s early 90’s. A sampling of a few tracks and download link are below.

Mash-Up Monday #11: Team Teamwork – Vinyl Fantasy 7

This came out a few days ago and it’s pretty dope. Team Teamwork took rap/hiphop accapellas and remixed them with the Nobuo Uematsu composed music from the classic PlayStation RPG, Final Fantasy VII. I love this shit. The album is available for free (or a donation of an amount to your choosing) from Team Teamwork’s BandCamp page.the BandCamp page has been since taken down.

g2{fx} & Phillip Morton – Clyde Comedy Launch (Video)

Gene Gonzales, known as g2{fx}, is a motion graphics extraordinaire residing in Norfolk, Virginia. Gene is currently the art director for WVEC.TV 13 and is responsible for 13 News having the best looking motion graphics out of all the 757 news programs, period. With 10 Emmy awards, a BDA award and an Addy under his belt for his outstanding work, it’s hard to argue.

The above piece, a promo/launch video for Clyde Comedy (clydecomedy.com) was produced by Philip Morton with Gene as Mr. Motion Director man. It’s look and feel was developed from inspiration from Saul Bass‘ work (designer of the original Psycho title sequence) and the title sequence of ‘Catch Me If You Can.’

Da Chip! The Music of Daft Punk Revisited on Vintage Game Systems (Album) + Bonus Tracks

da_chip_front

This tribute, titled Da Chip! is a project spearheaded by a French musician by the name Je deviens dj en 3 jours that consists of video game music (chiptune) inspired remakes of Daft Punk songs from various chiptune composers. It’s awesome; so awesome that I just danced to it in my room by myself for about 15 minutes straight but then again, I also have a soft spot for video games and chiptune music while also being a fan of Daft Punk. Outside of the links to download the tribute and the bonus tracks, I’ve selected a few tracks that can be listened to from this blog entry. The webpage for the project is located at http://jedeviensdjen3jours.com/dachip.

The first song I chose is from UK chiptune musician, Microchip‘s rendition of One More Time from DP’s Discovery album. It makes me feel nostalgic to the times I used to watch the skateboard video, Chomp On This (which happened to have somewhat a video game inspired theme to it, via it’s use of Pac Man imagery) everyday after school before going skateboarding.

The second track, covering Daft Punk’s Superheroes, from Spanish artist, Stage7 translates the Barry Manilow sample driven song into bleep-bloopy goodness. It also makes me think DP sampled the title track from the Super Nintendo game, Top Gear, for the bridge of the song even more. (Seems also the sound has also been used in the band Muse song Bliss.)

Throwback Thursday #3: A Song Is Born (1948)

Professor Hobart Frisbee proclaimed “Gentlemen, I am an Idiot, an absolute idiot… do you realize that since we’ve been cooped up here that music has changed, and changed considerably. I’ve been completely unaware of this situation. However, I tend to rectify it immediately… gentlemen, I’m going out… out into the world, out of this house, out to tap the major sources of this new music.” then the other men in the room, all white save one, spurt out, “boojie-woojie?” “toobie-dixie?” “jum?” “jive?” “swing?” “blues?” “rhe-bobbety-boobity-bip?” “rhebop?

The 1948 film, A Song Is Born was produced by Samuel Goldwyn (the ‘G’ in MGM) and directed by influential director, Howard Hawks whom also directed the original Scarface produced by Hollywood legend Howard Hughes. The film starring Danny Kaye and Virginia Mayo is a musical and Technicolor remake of the 1941 film, Ball of Fire with Gary Cooper. The plot focuses on a professor writing an encyclopedia about music with fellow scholars and are introduced to jazz by two black window washers Buck and Bubbles played by the performance group of the same name with Ford L. Buck and John W. ‘Bubbles’ Sublett (whom talent at dancing was the inspiration for Michael Jackson‘s naming of his famed pet chimpanzee.)

The movie also starred musical legends Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton and Benny Carter in addition to other other musical acts of the era. I haven’t actually seen the film yet, but I stumbled across it today on YouTube while researching Louis Armstrong. Anyone seriously into music definitely should see it. It’s available for viewing on YouTube and it can be purchased on DVD for relatively cheap on Amazon.com.
