Things are continuing to pick up with the Hiatus Kaiyote "Fingerprints" edit, as I got word from a DJ friend of mine based in Austin, TX (DJ Ash) that Soulection Radio on Beats1 Radio had featured the edit on their 5 year anniversary episode (#249) and the following episode after that. Big thanks to Joe Kay & the Soulection crew for the feature!
Outside of the edit & mixes, a new studio space is in the process of coming together with good friend and fellow group mate, Na'Cir Jahmill. Na'Cir Jahmill and I (Mo Serious) are MelloMadness, and are in the process of creating new music to share with you all. Here's a brief clip from Instagram to document our humble beginnings & share a small taste of what's to come.
Last but not least, I wanted to honor a couple of people who have had a big influence in my life that have recently passed. Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest is a key artist in some of my earliest exposure to Hip-Hop outside of what I knew on local radio, and ultimately was a big influence in opening my ears, heart, and mind to Hip-Hop culture. A true original, he will always be dearly missed. Joe Muniz, aka Poppin Joe was a long-time friend, ill popper, beam of light, and cornerstone of the Hip-Hop community in El Paso, TX. On a personal note, had it not been for him & how he redirected my path early on roughly 10 years ago, none of what I've been blessed to be a part of in music over the following years would have come to fruition. His spirit and love will continue to live on through those who knew and loved him. Below is a clip from a session of Joe with El Paso popper Jonathan Ley. Love and miss you Joe.
That's all for now. Thank you again for your continued support! - Mo
