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.
peace and flashing lights love.
i just wanted to say…
welcome to the new age of electro-hop.

The Martians have teamed up with Hot Topic for the Hot Topic Invasion tour. They land in Bloomington, IN this week. Here’s the official poster i put together for them.
Be there!…or don’t i guess. But try to make it out. The Martians are live no matter the venue. Word up!
Peace, and martian invasion love.
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
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!
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.
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!
Update to the first Polaroid style set of pictures.
I think this one is waay better! Please, accept my apology for the first one.
Oh yea and…new music coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!
Peace, and Martianland love.
The Martians were in Bloomington this weekend. Today (July 4th) they started recording for the new mixtape (coming soon!) Nice and Clutch. Here’s some shots i snapped and put together during the 2 song inspiration-fest.
Be on the lookout for new music!! Take my word for it…it’s a new sound from the first mixtape (Spaceships & Beamz @ Datpiff) and it is sounding riDICULOUS!! The quality is waaayyy nicer, the music is different, and both Jack and Max are continuously getting better.
Peace! and patriotic july 4th love.

What up world! So here’s another update for the Gravity Jones logo. I keep getting inspired and making changes (improvements!). But if you all could let me know which letter type you prefer i’d be much obliged.
Thus far people have expressed preference for both so…the help here would be great. I appreciate it all ya’ll.
Peace, and always gj love.
I just uploaded The Soulution to Datpiff so more people will here it. We never did do a cover for it so I went ahead and put this together. Which one do you like better?? (obviously, the only real difference is the effect on Red’s face on the first version)
Peace, and cover love.
PEACE! A little Gravity Jones update for you alls.

On a similar note, i’ll be posting a little freestyle session from the video shoot with InfeRed, LBizzle, and me. Stupid!
