The DubTalk ft. Breezy

Season 3 is here, and for the first time, The DubTalk is on video. We invited Breezy to the K12 studio to talk about her new “Tragic Mulatto” EP. The session is a wealth of knowledge and infectious improvised tunes. From minute one, Breezy was candid and honest with Lex and Eli. Off of the back of her open demeanor, we quickly dove into serious conversation about her road to “Tragic Mulatto”. Returning to American culture was rough for Breezy after a year in Berlin studying at dBs Music Berlin. She spent some dramatic time in L.A., which ended in her decision to return back to her home on the east coast. It was there that “Tragic Mulatto” grew into the moving piece of music that it is. The album is informed by “sources”, as Breezy calls them in the interview. These short skit-like interludes come between each track and...

For the first time ever, The DubTalk will be on video! Season Three will bring you closer to the weirdness going down in the K12 studio than ever before.

Automatic

Automatic me strapped haphazardly to wheel of weeks. Day in treat is children teeth wide in smiling shape innocent embraces grateful for the time I take out and dry as petrified left overs. Slumped shoulders. Dump body in the rows of poorly patterned seats. Need time to retreat into another me. Automatic? Automatically adjusting as the journey weaves. Train&I switch tracks, not always consistently. Tend to be late to the destination. Rehydrate. Rejuvenation is an effort in its own right, requires vitamin D or inner light to feed the more impactful me ? So many weeds to pluck if the patch is to be perfect. If the match is lit up early it burns the fingertips before it sparks the fire, before the guests arrive to sear the meat of defeatist philosophies on occupations we hesitate to label slavery. Strangely, we still enjoy the grill, laughing heartily, because we understand...

The DubTalk ft. Lizzy and the Palm

Elisabeth Mulroy is the final guest on this season of The DubTalk. When on stage, she goes by the name Lizzy and The Palm, because she does not feel she is alone in her artistic creation. Like many of us caught up in the creative process, Lizzy often feels the presence of a force which endows her with the ability to create music with a genuine passion. She has playfully named this force The Palm, but as she so wonderfully says in our conversation, she hesitates to confine this presence to one word because that excludes it from being everything else, which it also is. Throughout this episode of The DubTalk, we talk to Lizzy about the first time she became acquainted with this force and how she has learned to appreciate it and include it in her life and music. She has come a long way from the city in...

Rainy Beach (Live Set) by Knockout Knob

I was in Cuba last November for two weeks, traveling around the island with my lady. During the trip I made some tracks on my Novation Circuit and recorded this set on the beach of Varadero. It was sunny during the entire trip, but as soon as I was recording, it stared to rain. Luckily all my gear survived. Special thanks to Sara for the amazing trip and for operating the camera in that video.
