  • Just cause we have a day off don’t mean we ain’t workin…

    It’s been a little while since I checked in. It’s been a crazy couple of months. I have been DJing just about every weekend. A lot of fun, but the late nights and partying can take it’s toll. I’ve been dabbling with writing and producing my own songs. It’s been a lot of fun, but as a lyricist / singer is something I’m going to have to work at. Having found a muse is helping, not exactly the ending I would have liked, but good for writing songs. Seems some of the best tracks are created under similar circumstances. We’ll see if I can capitalize. Here’s a lil demo of something I’m working on

    The Blake9 and Vex da Vortex project is still coming… I got sent back to the lab on the mix of one of the tracks, we want it to be fresh before we do anything with it. However the artwork is ready everything is ready… But, me… I’ll get on that.

    Nine:Fifteen has some video shoots lined up. Bisquite is in a new place, new job, and settling in nicely out in LA. We’re hopeful to start recording again soon, so a trip to LA is likely in the near future.

    The Acorns, well… I’m sure Mad Squirrel is getting ready for the winter, so he’s probably out there getting ready for the winter. Somewhere on a college campus, climbing trees, gathering acorns, lookin at all the incoming females (even though he wouldn’t admit it). We did a new track, but… Honestly, I don’t even know where we are with that…

    Yesterdays Truth, again, well… I know Ionic is working out some recordings with long time friend Schwartzy…

    So, needless to say, lots in the works, but obviously we’re on a bit of a hiatus. Sounds like the crew needs a meeting… I’ll be working on getting my shit together… Reading this makes me realize how scattered I’ve been for the past months. Time to get back on the music grind! Letzzz Gooooo!

  • Update – 07/05/2010

    We have been busy! Trying to keep up the momentum. the Acorns have two new tracks. Working on the mixes for those. We are talking about releasing an EP of new songs.

    Nine:Fifteen is coming off of a very successful visit. Bisquite came all the way out from LA to record five new tracks. The duo also performed two shows in DC! If you missed them, you may be able to catch them in LA this fall where Nine:Fifteen will pick up where they left off and continue recording their second album.

    Blake9 has gone back to the grill to cook up some new tracks and continues to stay on the DJ grind. You can catch him this month at St. Ex (1847 14th St WDC) Friday July 9th.

    Bisquite Scorsese continues to practice his chops with the video editing / producing. He’s got two new videos he produced for Ariel Pink.

    Yesterday’s Truth performed in early May. They continue to work on new music and hope to share some earlier recordings soon.

    Stay Tuned…
