As anyone who reads this blog knows I'm a BIG fan of the whole Art Don't Sleep, Plug Research, Mochilla crew. If I were in LA I would be a complete pest they couldn't get rid of because all of their events, releases, exhibitions, film screenings, films, etc etc sound incredible. I heard about the Still Bill (Bill Withers biopic) from them and when I asked about the screening they arranged for it Dru informed me on Twitter "Grown men were crying. Appearance by James Gadson. Tons of special folks in the house". I imagine that's an accurate description for a lot of their events so follow @artdontsleep and check out www.mochilla.com
Info from the lovely J.Kim -
A couple of weeks ago, we sent out video of Blu and Pharoahe Monch speaking about the upcoming Shafiq Husayn album entitled "Shafiq En' A-Free-Ka" dropping October 6th on Plug Research. Later that night, an amazing array of musicians came together to take part in a jam session of epic proportions. Featuring Pharoahe Monch, Shafiq Husayn (SA-RA), Om'Mas Keith (SA-RA), Brook D'leau (J Davey), Mark De Clive Lowe, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Suite for Ma Dukes), Thundercat, and more, it was definitely a night to remember. Enjoy a video clip from the jam session, as well as the audio featuring special guest, Pharoahe Monch, on mic/hosting duties.
