NEW ALBUM!! Dj Center- Everything in Time

Last week I had the privilege of meeting Dj Center and vibing with him about life, music, and his new album “Everything in time”. Although this is his first album, it surely doesn’t sound like it. Time out New York even stated, ” the album is a soulful, smooth self-assured stroll through multiple genres, more the work of an old pro than a rookie artist”. Pulling from his romanian roots and collaborative New York nature, Dj center has developed his own unique style of genre blending that definitely separates him from the masses. Big ups to Dj center for being the Unconventional artist of the week! Bless :)

Pete Philly & Perquisite – “Time Flies”

Lately, I have been paying close attention to “time” and how important it is to cherish every second of everyday. As I walked downstairs this morning I heard this song on shuffle in my ipod. I thought it was by no coincidence because I just finished making a track called “bunk bed casket”, which explains how important our time really is. Not knowing much about Pete & Perq, I went ahead and visited their website to get a better idea of who they are, and where they are coming from. Here’s what it had to say,

“Perquisite (Amsterdam, 1982) and Pete Philly (Aruba, 1980) decided to join forces to form the producer/MC-duo Pete Philly & Perquisite in 2003 when they met through a mutual friend. The first result of this soulful coalition was the Mindstate EP, which had it’s release in January 2004 on Unexpected Records. The Mindstate EP was very positively regarded by the international press and recieved airplay on BBC1 were it was played by Benji B. Pete & Perq continued their collaboration and in march 2005 they released their 17-track debut album Mindstate, which was released all over Europe & Japan. It contained featurings by vocalists Talib Kweli, CeeMajor and Senna as well as featurings by internationally known jazz musicians Jesse van Ruller and Benjamin Herman. UK magazine Notion Magazine proclaimed their music to be “as much 21st century soul as Hip Hop genius” and continued with mentioning Mindstate as “one of the most profound Hip Hop albums of the year”. Talib Kweli added that “musically these guys are light-years ahead of the game.” Fulljoy this one! Bless up!
