IN THIS ISSUE:

Don blessed me up with that opportunity to cohost with music monsters that have slayed the industry with a pretty tough line up of artists. Hip hop isn’t something you slip on from time to time. It’s an instilled design that isn’t taught. So when dirty hip-hop heads who have turned into figures reach out for collaborative work, it’s a full circle of purple magic: forever faithful to the underground. As a music journalist my tokens of appreciation run dramatically deep this point in the game.

 

The reward comes from preserving a culture with a specific language through the use of writing. Skyzoo’s DJ Prince is trill for this one: “Writers control the culture. Your pen game is way better than a lot of people.” I just want to penetrate the music game by documenting with a pen and pad. I thank all the artists who’ve rocked with VC thus far.

IN THIS ISSUE:

This second issue of Vulgar Colors is special for the purpose of preserving what I know to be genuine -- The Hackney brothers are pioneers of a punk movement and they're the truth -- period. Innovative and faithful to self, I have to give thanks to David Hackney! Rough Francis definitely rocked my night at their New York show, and tugged at my heart even more for Vulgar Coloring through these pages.

IN THIS ISSUE:

Inspiration sometimes sparks out of intangible pieces of nothingness, and then a niche is born.

 

Natural highs from improvisation or a jam session is what music is all about. So I present sounds pulsating in vibrant and vivid Vulgar Colors. From antique musick dripping in raw instrumentation to dirty hip hop, VC is here to preserve what was, and still is, imprinted to last. 

 

Charlie Smarts and DJ Ill Digitz gracing the premiere issue with their old school flavor is exactly what I'm "talembout." Allow me to feed your ear musical nutrients.
