InfeRed update…No Turn On Red official cover

Hope you’re all enjoying the No Turn On Red mixtape. It’s on Datpiff and imeem, along with way too many free file download sites (megaupload|rapidshare|sendspace|zshare|limelinx|filefactory)!
This is just an update with the improved, OFFICIAL No Turn cover.

It just needed some slight improvements. We were set back a bit trying to decide what felt the best, but I think this cover really matches the spirit of the tape and InfeRed’s music in general.
Keep listening and let us know what you think about the music. We’re also looking to do shows so if you know of something and would like to feature InfeRed contact us!

Peace, and no turn on love, cover.


InfeRed…No Turn On Red (2009 mixtape)

We made it! Gravity Jones presents InfeRed‘s brand new mixtape No Turn On Red. Pick your favorite file site to download from below the artwork…

InfeRed – No Turn On Red links: megaupload | rapidshare | sendspace | zshare | mediafire | limelinx | filefactory

Gravity Jones presents InfeRed’s 2009 mixtape “No Turn On Red.” MLKjr said, “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets, even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.” Tony ‘InfeRed’ Graves feels his path is leading him to record and perform honest music. If it’s true that your soul should speak truest and loudest through your actions, midwest rapper InfeRed’s soul preaches through every line. In the vein of some of Hip-Hop’s most candid and ground breaking artists, Red works with a passion and dedication to his lyrics and each message they encompass. He is often likened to Jay-Z, Common, Royce Da 5’9, Elzhi, and, more recently, Wale. Download the mixtape, analyze the lyrics, scrutinize the songs, love it and hate it. Peace and much love.

Also, check it out, rate it, comment on it at datpiff.

Please spread it like wildfire!! Feel free to copy any of the links, artwork, music, burn it onto cds, whatever…just get it out there!! Electric grass roots style…
Also, please let us know what you think…
and while you’re at it check the official video for the single
The Higher:

Peace, and much love!!!


raphael saadiq…tiny desk concert

This is from this NPR featurette called a “Tiny Desk Concert.” It’s just Raphael Saadiq on acoustic guitar with Rob Bacon accompanying on acoustic. His voice is incredibly soulful and his songs are like old rhythm and blues pop songs from the 60s.
His most recent album ( The Way I See It(2008) ) is a serious classic. Pick it up if you haven’t yet.

I chopped up the three songs he does in the video and put them into this EP-style acoustic album. Here‘s the video if you want to watch them play through.
Peace, and sure hope you mean it love.

The Bassment…

Its that time again… Music Making Time (MMT) Im excited, a lot music in the works, its kinda scary… The Martians are working new material for “Nice & Clutch”… so fresh so clean lol, nah, but its some of that new new ish, smell me? The Studio is easily becoming one of my favorite places to be.. I honestly have a lot fun there, like a kid… Me, Max, E-Con & Wsquared had a magical studio session on the 4th of July Weekend down in B-Town… whipped up a lil crack for all them posers… two joints “Drumz” & “Instruments of Choice”  But one of the most important things when it comes t making records is the vibes in the studio, you know… that  connection between creative minds, also kn own as “synergy” is what molds everything together…Well, with that being said, here’s a few videos from the Big Homie Jay-Z who is also all about that “synergy.” Peace… Marz


July/August beat tape…wSquared

Aiyo aiyo aiyo yo you!
I just got FL Studio back (after my approximately 8 month hiatus). I’ve been super inspired and made a bunch of music in the past few weeks. Here’s a beat tape of a selected 14 tracks for ya’lls.
Beat Tape July/August 2009
Features my segue into techno/dance music and my second edition of a remix of Jackz’ “Iller”. Pretty much all these are rough and only 16-24 bars at most but can dEfINITELY be expanded on.

Also…I went to Lollapalooza in Chi city this past Friday and will be posting a review-ish recap with some pictures soon.

Peace, and music love!


martians poster…1.0

Yo, I’m on vacation and don’t have internet access (I’m at the local library), but I’m staying inspired and still creating. Here’s a poster I threw together for The Martians upcoming midwest tour.
martians_poster1
This is a very rough draft…just messing around sort of. Anything you like specifically? Don’t like? I kind of dig the font, and the background turned out cool. I’m leaving space (see under the font) for dates, locations, sponsor logos, etc.
I think I’ll work on another one incorporating some stock alien type photos, maybe a spaceship, or people running or something. Any ideas? Let me know.
Peace, and inspired love!
