MP3: Fly Moon Royalty - "Betta Have My Money"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Fly Moon Royalty - "Betta Have My Money"

2012 continues to be a busy year for Seattle's Fly Moon Royalty. The young electro-soul duo comprised of singer AdraBoo and producer Action Jackson have not only released their official debut album, the self-titled Fly Moon Royalty, but they've taken to stages far-and-wide, including at last month's SXSW music festival, to share the new music with fans. Now, with a new, soon-to-be-titled EP on the way, Fly Moon Royalty is excited to release their latest non-album loosie, "Betta Have My Money."

The song is built around a sample from the Betty Davis classic "If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up," and the old school soul track also inspired AdraBoo's lyrical direction on this new cut. "It keeps that same funk attitude," notes Fly Moon Royalty, "but it takes you into the whore house that 'Boo built."

Although the song doesn't appear on Fly Moon's album, those that have been to a recent show will likely find the track familiar. "This song is one of my favorites to perform," says AdraBoo. "It's got a laid back, grimy kind of sexy to it – it's provocative!"

PR: The Pharcyde - Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde - The Singles


From Trevor Seamon:

The Pharcyde - Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde - The Singles Collection. Limited Edition - Record Store Day - April 21, 2012

In honor of the 20th anniversary of The Pharcyde's debut album, Delicious Vinyl is proud to present Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde The Singles Collection. This limited edition set will be available at your favorite record store on April 21, 2012 - Record Store Day.

Originally released in November 1992, Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde emerged at a time when gangsta rap dominated what people were hearing, seeing and buying, especially on the West Coast. The Pharcyde's refreshing sound - lively, humorous and inventive lyrics overs lush, jazzy productions - changed hip hop's trajectory and influenced a generation of artists. In the last twenty years, Bizarre Ride has solidified its reputation as a five-star classic, beloved by critics and fans alike.

The limited edition box set includes:

Seven 7" records pressed on seven different colors of vinyl, housed in replica mini jackets.

A double CD package with 24 tracks featuring seven instrumentals (one previously unreleaed), five acapellas (four previously unreleased) and six remixes, plus a bonus track taken from a rare vinyl-only promo 12" single.

A large 21"x28" poster and 120-piece jigsaw puzzle, both featuring the album's iconic rollercoaster cover art.

Detailed liner notes written by album producer J-Sw!ft, along with never-before-seen vintage photos of The Pharcyde.
