The three day-long event begins Friday night, September 10th, at The Fillmore with the Power to the Peaceful Pre-Party where Michael Franti will give a special acoustic performance of his new CD, The Sound of Sunshine. The album is set for release September 21st.

Press Release: We Heart Camu Tao

From 'Stache Media:

Press Release: We Heart Camu Tao

(Definitive Jux/Fat Possum; August 17)

Two years ago Tero "Camu Tao" Smith died after a grueling battle with cancer.  He was a friend, a son, a brother, a groom-to-be and last but not least a brilliant producer, singer, rapper and entertainer. 

This summer, on August 17th, Camu Tao's first and final solo album King Of Hearts will be released on Definitive Jux in collaboration with Fat Possum. King Of Hearts is now available for pre-order on DefinitiveJux.net. When you pre-order King Of Hearts you will have the option to buy an "I Heart Camu" T-shirt. All proceeds from T-shirt sales will go directly to charity and will ship with packages the week before release date. Limited edition screen prints are available to the first 50 orders!

"King Of Hearts is essentially a collection of demos and unfinished songs Camu had created for his album.  Some were recorded professionally, some were not.  His sickness prevented him from finishing them all.  We felt that the music, even in its raw form,  was beautiful and needed to be heard.  Camu needs to be heard."
~ Jaime "EL-P" Meline

FREE mp3 from King Of Hearts | "Plot A Little"
Prior to his death, Camu Tao formed production crew and side project Central Services with longtime friend and collaborator El-P. The long-awaited 2005 debut EP Forever Frozen in Television Time has gone unreleased until now. In conjunction with the release of King Of Hearts, Definitive Jux is giving away Central Services' EP as a free digital download.

El-P will be in Camu Tao's hometown of Columbus, OH to host a celebration of his life and the release of King Of Hearts. This event was planned in conjunction with Camu's fiancé and is taking place on Monday, August 16th at Skullys. It is free to enter, with a $5 suggested donation. All proceeds will go to the James Cancer Hospital.

NEOSONIC News: Help Name My Next Side Project!

From K-Murdock:

NEOSONIC News: Help Name My Next Side Project!

Fresh off the Forever Famicom album with Random, i got my next collaborative side-project in the works with The ParanormL, an emcee residing in Cali by way of Japan. The ParanormL is a very fresh and spiritually-minded lyricist who advocates positivity & preservation of the Hip-Hop arts, without coming off preachy like some tend to. He's worked with dope producers like J. Rawls and traded verses with emcees such as Canibus! I was actually put onto his music 2 years ago by a listener of my radio show, Subsoniq, and thought he be great to include on Piano-rama so i hit him up and the end result of that collaboration yielded...

Since "Star Seeds" we been talking about doing a side project together and so far, we are a few songs into one, BUT we need a NAME to help guide the project along.  So to anyone reading this: Please post a comment with a prospective name for the album either here or over on my forum and whoever's name we ultimately choose will win a signed CD copy of the album, which should be out this fall/winter. Fair enough?
