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...

The DubTalk ft. Alexey Kochetkov and Valentina Bellanova

Alexey Kochetkov and Valentina Bellanova came into the studio and graced us with a change of perspective and pace. He plays violin. She plays ney. They are both involved in several projects in Berlin which focus on intertwining the sounds and styles of Middle Eastern music with those of the Western world. Even though we invited them into the studio out of a desire to explore this intersection, we were still blown away by the enchanting aura they coaxed into the dingy walls of the K12 by bowing and blowing their respective instruments. All three of us were held in a trance as they performed their first piece, which extends a full thirteen minutes and makes up the heart of this episode of The Dub Talk. Once we surfaced from said trance, we were full of questions. Everything from timing and key to storytelling and technique were discussed. The Untelevised Crew had begun to...

The DubTalk ft. Maura Souloud

Maura Souloud‘s voice is an ethereal trip into a dimension where all sounds make you smile and sigh. Her stylings are smooth. Her lyricism is poignant, and her vibe is always warm and welcoming. Because Maura is a member of the Peanut Butter Beats crew, we’ve had the pleasure of being privy to her artistry many times, and we figured y’all might love it as much as we do.  When we invited her into the K12, Maura did not disappoint. Throughout the sound check, she was singing catchy lines and busting out the fattest sounds from her SP-404 Sampler. Once the conversation started to roll, Maura was not shy about telling shit like it is. We dove into her origins in the Deutsch Rap scene, and she gave us her honest opinions about the way her femininity affected her ability to do what she wanted to do, which was rap....
