what up! how's everyone doing? i've been going thru a lot of shit, just managing my life and trying to make some changes.anyways, one thing that's been keepin me positive is that 回香靖 is coming out real soon!it was amazing to be able to produce and record this album with Jin. really admire his work ethic. gotta thank him for the opportunity and really trust me enough to let me do the entire album. the 2nd single off the album is out!Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WqhXcQWmAE&feature=channel_video_titlehope yall would like this one! this is for the summer! gotta thank my homie Kel for producing this song with me and playing the guitars! i play a role in the video too. basically the storyline goes, the 4 of us are playing a game of monopoly at the beach, then we all dream about being rich once we get money in the game. request for this on the radio! thank u!!Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgSlAJnsfz8&feature=channel_video_titlethis one here is a street single from the album. i love making soul beats like that. this is a conscious joint. one of my favorites in the album. if my memory is right, i think Jin recorded the entire song in one take right after i arranged the beat. no adlibs, no punch-ins. hope u like this one!so mark your calendars, August 8th! thank u for your support!!
i've always been lucky and given opportunities to work with people that inspires me.i was either 3 or 4years old when my dad played the 太極 cassette tape in the car. that was probably my first encounter with rock music.can't believe that after so many years (im 21 right now) we managed to get 太極's guitarist Joey Tang to bless a track on the 85Crew album.. woohooo.. history in the making for me!the song is called RockStar. look out for the 85Crew album (we'll figure out a name for the project soon)
) is a
Latin statement proposed by
René Descartes. The simple meaning of the phrase is that someone wondering whether or not he exists is, in and of itself, proof that he does exist (because, at the very least, there is an "I" who does the thinking).
well, someone who reads my blogs (surprisingly, sometimes i think that no one visits this page) tells me that he always comes here and see a lot of emo, sentimental shit.yeah thats right, i turn to this shit to vent my anger and all sometimes. anyways, while being in school, i hated it being so hectic and wasting my time. now im having my holidays, i feel like damn, im wasting like maybe 5 days a week doing nothing. im waking up at like 1 or 2pm feeling like shit everyday, walking 5mins to a nearby mall with my mom and eat lunch, then come back home, sweating, trying to chill out a bit and make beats. well, i guess when ur not doing much, inspiration doesnt come that much. the drums man. i've been tryin to figure out these fuckin drums since monday. i cant arrange it properly. the drums sound boring as fuck....as all these weird feelings start to mess up my mind, i start to think of weird shit. i cant get my head straight.. why am i feelin like this and how do i describe these feelings towards u and me. right. i gotta wake the fuck up and get my life together. i look at all these inspiring figures around me and i feel so useless (see i like hangin out with people that could inspire me. creatively and philosophically). hope that all the music we've been doing would be rewarding in one way or another..
random 3rd installment of the 85CrewTV series directed by kodieedited by dj xlargespecial appearance by Kyle (xlarge's nephew)enjoy!peace
i was randomly talkin to eva about how our friend Flashkid was really tall and all.then we kinda made references to yao ming.so then i remembered watchin the trailer of this documentary called The Year Of The Yao.i was like sleepin over at my friends place back in singapore when we randomly saw this.so anyways, this is a pretty good film documenting yao's first year in america told thru the perspective of his translator.kinda touched. its good to see how someone at yao's status being as humble as he is.highly recommended, go check it out!
yes. our album is in the works. im pretty excited about this. putting together a lot of different soundscapes together. we're exploring a wide variety of sounds that we've never touched before. really happy to see everyone mature and concentrated. dennis zee, kwokkin and i are mainly producing the songs on this album. kwokkin especially, got some crazy crazy new beats!we're sorting out the guest features.every member gets a solo track too.its good that we switch up our working process. back then it was just dennis sending us beats. we like it, then we write our parts individually. then record it together.now we're more hands on. making beats together, recording and writing and editing at the same time. brainstorming together and all. feels good that way.really really looking forward!!
can't wait! i posted up the poster earlier, yall can check out those previous blog entries. anyways the address is here 6/F, Ko Leung Industrial Bldg, No.25 Dai Yip Street , Kwun Tongsee yall there tonight!!peace
