The Four Horsemen is an eye opening exposé of the current US political and economic system. In Time Out London, Derek Adams wrote: “Instead of bombarding us with sensational imagery and scaremongering, this competently narrated, intelligibly structured and cleverly illustrated film presents its case via a succession of insights from a group of smart, rational orators…” Dig in!
Valerie Broussard is an up and coming Philly bred soul disciple. On the new Strange Majik single she sings “Everywhere love will find you anywhere you go.” Can you dig it?
I discovered MC Elijah Black rapping at The Lesson parties at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC. I wrote the main hook and produced out the track and was thinking about my father’s struggles with money and being an artist. Like it or not, like apples we don’t fall far from the tree. I asked Elijah to bring his perspective to the idea. What he came back with blew my mind. The amazing Felipe Torres came in later and nailed the groove. Give it a spin and please share on social.
Summer is here and what better time for a smokey eyed groove featuring the talented New York singer Fiona Silver. New album to come in the fall!
Laurel is a super talented young woman from London who I got to get to meet during The Northside Festival this year. She is self produced and writes her tunes as well. Quite the lyricist and musician I must say!! Of course she’s comes fully equipped with mad talent, nice manners, and the classic self-effacing brit sense of humor . Here is our interview and live session on my Amazing Radio show. Check her out.
Have u seen Park Ave?? Thanks to a chance encounter while getting darshan at Amma, I met the most awesome Kelly Cutrone. She turned me on to this movie. Here it is in its entirety, or you can stream it on Netflix. Let’s just say (sadly of course) it just reaffirms that my lyrics to my new single Workingman are right on the money.
Enjoy and spread the word – Majik
It’s like 1970 all over again! It’s high time for a groovy empowering rock and roll anthem with a bit of fuzz guitar and a wailing soul queen. Just wait till you hear Kennedy who I discovered at The Lesson parties in NYC on the chorus. Slammin’.
America has changed. The age of open source has revealed the black heart of greed and corruption and imperialist aggression. We are wearing China made from head to toe, being fed toxic GMOs. Our emails are read and our clicks are sold to corporate behemoths propped up by over inflated Wall St. valuations. The middle class has all but disappeared and the media keeps you pumped with entertainment news and gratuitous sex.
People have the power to organize and make a difference, Revolutions are happening all over the world. Things can change and it starts from the bottom. The tech savvy have the technology chops to work for change and innovation that really makes our world a better place, not just a better app.
This is my anthem. Give it a spin. Hope it inspires ya.
The second single to be released from the “Lights On” LP. The lovely and massively talented Melanie Charles joins the mildly debauched, mostly lovestuck Majik trippin’ on a funky soul wave.
