SOUND ON! WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT • You are now listening to my fave Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) track from 2007: The Plague • hook written and sung by moi, production by @jacobedawson (aka Jacob Giles) with verses by Lee (Insyte) and Jacob Giles ft. Jacob Quest = four people of colour from different backgrounds coming together in the name of hip hop • this marked the beginning of DTD finding our unique sound • it's a shame we never got to release it...so tell me what you think? • do you want to hear more of it? (trust me, you do - the verses by the other MCs are pure fyah!) • shoutout to @sonymusicindia artist @therajakumari and @monicadogra inspiring women like me to own our art and put it out (been sitting on these tracks for over a decade!) and to long-time friends & fellow artists @plugwondelasoul@sashyajay and @blakdouglas for always encouraging me to keep walking this creative life path

SOUND ON! • you asked for it so here is a rough recording of "Moments in Time" - beat by @jacobedawson with lyrics & vocals by yours truly circa 2006...
Where I sit
off the walls of a tired mind.
My drained complexion
left with no place to hide
under fluorescent light.
yet so damn tired.
Lift my feet from this ground
just to get me higher.
In my belly
my soul and my toes
out my nose
where it goes, hell
only god knows.
I use my poetic licence to write my rhymes
and leave my guilty confessions behind.
There's nothing purer than you and me tonight
'cos we're just sifting through moments of time.
Fun fact: many moons ago I was a singer/songwriter in a hip hop trio called Dusk Till Dawn along with producer/MC @jacobedawson and MC/singer Lee Victoire • we only performed twice as a group but spent countless hours writing, recording and producing music in Jacob's tiny bedroom/recording studio, experimenting with sounds and fusing our favourite genres at the time • this photo was taken by the talented @andresmarinphotography when art was something we fit in around our 9 to 5 jobs • now, over 10 years later, we are both full-time, self-employed artists and I'm very excited to be working with Andres on a new creative project (stay tuned) • in the meantime, do y'all wanna hear a few Dusk Till Dawn original songs? Let me know and I'll post...
WOW that was fun. Thanks to the sick crowd at Rockwood last night for giving us great energy! Here’s Outkast’s “Bombs Over Baghdad” and Kendrick’s “Poetic Justice.” Thanks to @guitar_man_brown foe the video.
Next up is the Sort Of Wine Bar Session tomorrow with Sam Minaie on bass and Mareike Weining on drums. Come play and hang from 7-10!

지난달 @dagreatdeitydah 의 홍대 공연이 끝난후 @boombapmaster(운바머) 에게 전달받은 시디들을 챙기고 있었는데 그레잇 형님이 이 시디를 보고 소리쳤다
"Oh ~~my bro" 그는 나의 친구며 지금도 연락한다며 DM을 보여주고 너무 반갑다며 나보고 이 시디를 들고 사진 한장을 찍자고 하셨다.
아마도 바로 DM을 보내신거 같은데 그가 "Sons Of Light" 의 @sir_syl 으로 추정된다. (그분이 그레잇 형님의 포스팅에 댓글을 다신거보니 ㅋ)

아깝더라도 놓칠수 있는 음반도 있겠으며
놓치면 두고 두고 후회하게 되는 음반도 있겠는데 이 앨범은 당연히 후자에 해당되는 90's QB 사운드의 정수를 담고 있다.
