Fly Moon Royalty: Fly Moon Royalty

It seems that these days I am the Seattle music correspondent for TWJ, but it’s so hard to pass up on all this new music, just like Fly Moon Royalty. Think about a little Lauryn Hill, mix it with some electronic production from Four Tet, and out comes self- proclaimed electrosoul. The group consists of Adraboo and MC/producer/DJ Action Jackson. They also have a ton of free downloads on their bandcamp.

Best Mash-Ups, Covers, and Remixes of Semi-Lately

Mash-Ups, Covers, and Remixes often seem to rub people the wrong way. I like to think of them more as interpretations. Just take them for what they are. No one is going to make a Bob Marley song as well as Bob, but you can interpret it in a new way. So here are some covers and mash-ups that I have been into semi-lately.
