Here’s a quick sneak preview of my upcoming EP, “Trill Collins.” This is a beat I am working on, using “Easy Lover” by Phil Collins.
#TBT Volume 2! This week’s track was one of my first big “hits” as The Melker Project. Lana Del Rey had just hit the scene, so I quickly jumped on the remix bandwagon. After hearing “Born To Die” for the first time, I realized that it was the perfect song to choose from her album – the infectious vocals and spooky instrumentation were ripe for reinvention. The result was a mashup/remix of Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulders,” Lana’s “Born To Die,” Jamie Foxx and Rick Ross’s “Living Better Now” and Ice Cube’s “I Rep The West,” with some self produced elements.
I am fortunate that my studio in Miami is in the Florida Film House. This talented collective of creative visionaries is responsible for a number of the music videos you see on your television, as well as the commercials that interrupt your favorite sporting event. They were kind enough to shoot some footage of my recent shows and put together this quick little montage. Extra shout out to YoYo, who put this entire thing together. Music from “The Melker Project 3.” Peep game.
What is there to say? This is hands down one of my favorite songs of all time. The beat is an incredible flip of Tracy Chapman’s track “Fast Car” and is exactly the kind of sampling that inspires my work. Enjoy this classic – they don’t make em’ like they used to!
Man, I use to love “My So Called Life.” Clare Danes was so mysterious. Ok, I actually never watched it, but it seemed like something I should have liked. I did think Jared Leto was awesome in Requiem For A Dream and American Psycho. And now, apparently, he thinks I am awesome too. In his personally curated (according to a contact at iheartradio) guest DJ playlist, he chose to include one of my tracks from SKEETWOOD MAC – “Feelin’ The Landslide.” So yeah, that’s pretty cool….
