MoRuf – Tangerine/her. (Official Music Video)

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 by | No Comments | Category: Music, RnB/Jazz/Soul


A couple days ago, Moruf dropped the 2nd visual from his latest project, Shades Of Moo. The video video, Buckle Up was directed by Street Etiquette and displayed Moruf working out a rocky relationship. This video, Tangerine has a completely different vibe, showing a more joyful side of love. Moruf’s soul hop sound fits perfectly with this visual concept. It feels a bit like A Tribe Called Quest and Slum Village, which are obvious influences for Moruf. Check out the video and download Moruf’s Shades Of Moo project if you haven’t done so yet.

Happy Birthday Billie Holiday

Cheeba Cruz x Vulgar Colors

The art of giving is the joy of being able to inspire. Today is fond of simplicity as murky weather provokes a calmness meddling into the residents on this block, but the creative juices aren’t yielding. I call artists and creative folks that hang around in bars and café spots in Bedstuy and Bushwick “neighborhood kids.” A couple of those kids, two women, are lounging around an apartment on Tompkins Avenue researching content for projects while sharing always pleasant conversation of stories and laughs. It’s a remedy for the soul to connect with another human being composed of matter of essentially the same as you. The writer and stencil artist, who consists of layered artistic endeavors, talked it out over tea and work when that energy hit of, “IT’S BILLIE HOLIDAY’S BIRTHDAY!” A woman praising another woman is a beautiful art within its natural element. The lovely Lady Day is a mutuality that these two women share whether it’s been exchanged through discussion or not, simply because she oozes a womanhood that is perceived as mentorship—Billie Holiday inspired.

Vulgar Colors sat down today with a creative, intelligent flower who focuses in film, photography and gracefully sits as a pretty beast (visual artist). Celebrating a historical, and still very much so a prominent musical figure and survivor, sprinkled some Fairy God wonders into Izabeau Giannakopolis. As the designer of multiple trades arranged her artistic energy into order she began working on a visual of Ms. Holiday using her pad, a pen and tea. It’s an important factor to spread some light to those who come before us who have totally impacted our hearts with the truth and soul, so VC and Beau are toasting to the same drum. As we cheers to a pioneer and engineer of paving jazz music and superb vocals for singers to adore, we feel warm about providing an editorial and art piece. I fell into a deeper spell-like appreciation for Lady Day after reading more and watching a documentary on her years later from seeing ‘Lady Sings the Blues.

Props are given for highlighting Holiday in Hollywood (more…)

I was put on to this cat’s music from DJ Wally Sparks. If you know Wally Sparks, he’s not really wrong when it comes to this music stuff. It was a little minute ago when he introduced me to the New Orleans native’s music, but around SXSW time I finally took a listen and I like what I’ve heard so far. You decide for yourself with the video above. Pell’s “EST 2005″ and download his most recent project hosted by DJ Wally Sparks, CALPHONIC for free here: http://bit.ly/1dIU3v1
