These are the Masters of the Universe

This is version twoness of the Oneness here at NSS (version juju here).

Cosmick jazz phunk at its very finest. Deep space rendezvous making musick for Planet Earth deep as midnight sky of blue.

If you want to read a great heart-felt piece "Personal Random Ramblings" by Plunky hisself, try this. It reminded me so much of my own past in the late 60s. It also gave me a feeling of great pride in what Bernie Sanders is attempting right now (Bernie is also a product of the radical 60s).

The distance between here & there is one thought. The time between somewhere & anywhere is the same. Places & things are collections of thoughts…mountains…molecules…molehills…Mars men. Quantum metaphysics.

On X, Oneness is: Plunky Nkabinde – vocals & saxophone; Chris Beasley – guitar; Kevin Christopher – keyboards & drum/bass loops; Carl Lester Jr. – bass; & Ronnie Cokes – drums with the help of Paris 'Pee Wee' Ford & Scott Harlan – additional bass heaviness, Rudy Faulkner – additional rapness, & Desiree Roots – additional vocal sweeeeetness.

Let the Children Play

I was ripping a copy of Lee Perry's Cutting Razor for a friend & while I was listening, the U Roy track just grabbed me. I dug out the single & here it is. U Roy scats along with Lee Perry's kids Omar & Marsha keeping the rhythm with backing vocals.


Neither Dubstar, Dub, nor Disco…interesting nonetheless

Currently both OOP & unavailable as mp3 download from Echo Beach, here for your aural pleasures…

More an electro remix project than anything else. For me, "Politik Kills" is the stand-out track (featuring Linton Kwesi Johnson).

The Tears of a Clown

Looking into the Crystal Ball, I see...

There are 27 primaries & caucuses between now - June 7, which is the day that Bernie Sanders overtakes the Hillary Clinton campaign in pledged delegates needed to win the nomination.

All recognized National Polls have Bernie Sanders beating Donald Trump in the Presidential election by a considerable margin.

Can't wait to see the tears of the Clown.

Angie B’s Life Story --- Tell Me (Baby)

Rolling Stone Magazine once declared, 
     "When soul music was in the lost and found, she came along to claim it."

This super Soul-power made Angie B. Stone the main woman for emerging record labels when they were creating their signature sound & vision. In the 70s it was Angie Stone who helped to define the sound of the now legendary Sugar Hill Records, when she was one of the first recorded female rappers/singers in the ground-breaking trio Sequence.

Later, music mogul Clive Davis tapped Stone's iconic sound in the early 00s, when he launched J Records. She recorded her gold-selling Mahogany Soul for that label.

Angie has worked with Mantronix. 

She sang backing vocals on Lenny Kravitz's fifth studio album, 5

During the early 90s she moved on to become a part of the trio Vertical Hold (releasing two albums: A Matter of Time [1993] & Head First [1995]). 

Stone shared songwriting credits on D'Angelo's first two studio albums, Brown Sugar (1995) & Voodoo (2000), as well as touring with him & providing backing vocals.

In 1996, Stone teamed up with Gerry DeVeaux (Lenny Kravitz's cousin) & Charlie Mole to form the group Devox. They recorded one album, Devox Featuring Angie B. Stone.

Devox featuring Angie B. Stone – Self-titled, Devox TOCP 8923, 1996.

It's a Wackie Showcase

I saw over at Roots Stone blog that they had posted a favorite of mine from 80s era Wackie’s, Wayne Jarrett – Showcase Vol. 1. It reminded me of a couple of other great Wackie’s releases from the same time frame also in the Horace Andy/Wayne Jarrett showcase Dubwise version stylee. If you’re a fan of Bulwackie’s inimitable work, you should really savor these.
