I am pretty tech-challenged.
I am fine with it.
O.G. tracks must be unearthed.

This album is the reason I started MashDownBabylon records 12 years ago. I met Maylay and VITAL, and almost immediately began writing and recording tunes, eventually at a pace of 2 a week. Before long we had this, the maiden voyage of a fledgling DIY record label, and my first official foray into the world of Hip-Hop. The 3 of us recorded the whole thing in my mother’s garage on an outdated digital 8-track (BR-8 lol) with one cheap mic and an old Korg Triton. It still brings back great memories and despite our inexperience I still think it sounds dope! Enjoy:)
Here’s a track with “mi familia Venezuelana”. Some of you may have heard this before but I just came across it again and thought it was dope soI wanted to share it. Produced and recorded by my good friend Marcel Fernandez in Macaraquay, Caracas, Venezuela. I recorded the basic acoustic version at probably 4 in the freakin’ morning sometime in Oct, 2009. Then Marcel surprised me with this regalo last week. The other players on this track are Daniel Vargas-Drums, and Baden Goyo-Piano. check out their venezuelan crew, waipea records. much love enjoy!
Thank you to all of you who came and supported us this summer. It was an experience indescribable. I am eternally humbled and grateful. PEACE
