Muhsinah to Record First Studio Album, Dear _______

Since we didn’t post this awesome video when it came out a few months back, we’re posting it now in light of Muhsinah’s album fundraising efforts through the trendy new platform Kickstarter. If the project reaches it’s goal of $31K by July 4, Muhsinah will record her first studio album, Dear _____. This Grammy nominated artist is on Thom Yorke’s (Radiohead) current top 10 list, has toured with Common as part of the Universal Mind Control stage show, and has been featured in a plethora of indie releases since her graduation from the Red Bull Music Academy. Find out more about the project or pledge to donate here.


Have a Happy New Year w/ Common and Rye Rye

Not sure about you but it’s hard for us to look fabulous on New Year’s Eve drunk on champagne in eight inches of snow. So why don’t you break out your brand new Jimmy Choos and come ring in the New Year at the stunningly chic Delano Hotel, amid South Beach, Miami‘s 75 degree temperatures.

Common will be performing inside The Florida Room, which holds only 200 people, with DJ Tommy Ryk stimulating your mind and your body. In case you don’t feel like being inside when the clock strikes midnight, Poolside, we will have Rye Rye shaking it down with DJ Mateo DiFontaine. And if all that isn’t enough, from 10pm-1am there will be an open bar included in the price of your ticket. Now tell us if you can think of a better place to be.

RSVP and TICKETS are a must for both events! So hurry up because they are going fast.

Giant Step Presents New Year’s Eve 2010 In Miami With Common & Rye Rye

gs_nye01Giant Step is hosting the New Year’s Eve party you don’t want to miss in Miami. We are back after last year’s epic celebration, which included performances from The Roots, Janelle Monáe and DJ Bobbito. This year, Giant Step brings in 2010 with a bang with Common and Rye Rye.

Common will be performing live in The Florida Room, which only holds 200 people. It’s going to be like having this Grammy Award-winning artist play with his killer live band in your living room, with all your friends in it. Open bar from 10 PM – 1 AM.

Outside by the pool, we will have Rye Rye ringing in the next decade. The Baltimore native and protégé of M.I.A. is one of the artists we’re tipping for success next year.

So if you want your NYE to be hot, book your ticket to Miami and join the Giant Step party!

Common “I Want You” – !llmind Remix

illmind!llmind’s rework of Common’s “I Want U” smoothes the original stutter by injecting a little more lounge, more R&B, flickering it into a warm Saturday night jam.
