  • NEWS: MUSIC AND OUR MIND


    By Laurence O’Donnell-Cerebromente

    “Music is so naturally united with us that we cannot be free from it even if we so desired” (Boethius cited by Storr).
    Music’s interconnection with society can be seen throughout history. Every known culture on the earth has music. Music seems to be one of the basic actions of humans. However, early music was not handed down from generation to generation or recorded. Hence, there is no official record of “prehistoric” music. Even so, there is evidence of prehistoric music from the findings of flutes carved from bones.[Read More]

    By Tali – Nu Soul Magagine

    Feeling in the mood for something fresh? Something to stir your soul and get your head bobbing? Then the answer may lie here, in an album beautifully sewn together with groove injected vibes that stretch from London to New York. Formerly of 90?s DnB Soul influenced collective 4Hero and not to mention a whole heap of other collaborative projects and aliases such as Tek 9, Jacob’s Optical Stairway, DKD and Silhouette Brown, the time has finally come for Denis ‘Dego’ McFarlane to shine using his own name. And what better way than with his new album Wha Him De Pon? a soulful, jazzy and synth infused LP, perfect for bumpin’ in the summer sunshine.[Read More]

  • NEWS: WHAT MADE NUBLU’S REPUTATION


    By Larry Rother – NY Times

    From the outside the club appears to be just another shuttered and somewhat grotty East Village storefront, and the interior, with its scarred wooden floor and graffiti-daubed walls, isn’t any more impressive. Instead, it’s what happens onstage that has made Nublu’s reputation as an incubator of musical talent, with some of the most adventurous and varied offerings in the city. [Read More]

  • NEWS: INTERVIEW WITH ‘VIVA RIVA’ DIRECTOR DJO MUNGA

    By Brett JohnsonThe BVX

    ‘Viva Riva!’, a high-octane crime thriller set in the Congo during a fuel crisis, is the first feature film from the country in 25 years. And it’s a riveting, beautifully shot portrait of a country entangled in a violent web of corruption and desperation.

    Riva, the charismatic title character played by Patsha Bay Mukuna, returns to his native Congo after a ten year absence with a stolen shipment of fuel and a cocky sense of newfound wealth. But bloodthirsty gangsters, who are bent on reclaiming their property, are hot on his trail. What unfolds is a compelling tale of a developing country entangled in corruption and sometimes brutal violence.

    The film, which just won Best African Movie at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, manages to combine the similar pulsating energy of Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles’s ‘City of God’ with a realistic grasp of underworld pathology that recalls Hype Willams’ debut, ‘Belly’.

    “My challenge was to push to the limit as far as possible, in terms of being true to the society,” said first-time director Djo Tunda wa Munga (above center, with actors). “Which means talking about the real issues, the prostitution, the sexuality and also the violence.” We chatted with Munga recently about the challenges and triumphs of making a film (which opens in theaters in New York, Los Angeles and Portland on June 10) set in his native country.[Read More]

  • NEWS: R.I.P. LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY INTERVIEW

    By DJhistory.com

    Loleatta was born in Chicago in 1946 and, like most of her peers, began singing in gospel groups before striking out on a solo career through GRC subsidiary Aware. In 1976, she was signed to the Norman Harris-helmed Gold Mind, an offshoot of Salsoul Records, where she recorded all of her best work, usually working with Harris. Although she made a number of classic recordings it was through her live work that Loleatta excelled, often performing at the gay clubs of the era, like the Paradise Garage and Better Days. Her vocal were later sampled by Black Box for their controversial hit ‘Ride On Time’. Loleatta died on March 21st after a short period of ill health.

    Tell me how you got signed to Salsoul?

    OK, I was signed to GRC first, out of Atlanta Georgia, on Aware. The owner of the record company went to jail.[Read More]
