Live from the road

...literally. I'm blogging on the freeway from the Vader Van. I need to get Autonet in my whip when I get home.

So far the tour has been live as hell. I'll save the videos of live footage and people laying unconscious for when I get home. Here's a couple randoms for now.

What we do to pass the time between shows.

Eligh has been broadcasting some of the shows live. Check out his UStream channel and follow him on Twitter for more info. Tonight we hit San Jose @ Avalon.

A Tribute to Saadiq

This is all Cosmo Baker's fault. I mean, I've always loved Saadiq going back to the TTT days, but hearing Cosmo's mix of his work really put it all in perspective. Raphael Saadiq is a genius. Period. Just listen and you'll see. From Tony! Toni! Tone! & Stevie Wonder to Q-Tip & DJ Quik, he is just that dude.

So, without jumping further on his forward a couple days later and I'm driving around town bumping this CD. "Still Ray" came on and stayed on and that's when I knew I had to re-do it (now I know how Dre must've felt).
I came home and listened to it, figured out the piano part and played everything else from there. Once I was finished I called my man Miles Bonny to lay down vocals and trumpet like only he can and here it is, free for you.

DJ Day & Miles Bonny - Still Miles (Still Ray)

DJ Day - Skyy (Can You Feel Me)*

This was going to (and still might) come out on vinyl with another Saadiq cover I did that's an instrumental. I'll keep you all posted and I might just post it on the strength*.

I also want to say RIP to Tony D. Legendary unsung producer behind Poor Righteous Teachers, YZ, (O.P.P.* look it up) his own solo records and much more. He passed away from a car accident over the weekend. Check the interview he did with Fatlace last year.

All Eye Seeing

Asher who? Sounding like Em with '09 punchlines is cool and all, but there's some palefaces (saul love!) putting it down with soul. I'm proud of my dude. Go cop that

Blame One - Supreme Beings still one of my favorite joints on the album
