RhoDeo 1713 Kundalini 5

Hello, well as i feared F1 race had to do without any real overtaking apart from a scrap at the end for the last point , in front Massa at 6 th was the last car escaping overtaking by race winner Vettel, 1 min in front of him Verstappen who rode his Red Bull to the max causing his breaks to smoke, but Raikonen was just out of reach in fourth 23 sec slower than his team mate. Hamilton was unable to get closer to Vettel, after being stuck behind Verstappen. Botas did a good job stayed out of trouble and finished 3rd 11 sec in front of Raikonen, which proves to me that Mercedes had the superior car but Vettel outclassed the competition.

There's a profound spiritual possibility open to all people: the opportunity to be absolutely connected to the source of all life, and have that energy steer us in the direction of destiny. Kundalini is the natural creative alignment with the divine; it is our inherent birthright that most have been separated from. How do you unify lower and higher self so that you may reactivate your Kundalini? What would be the advantages of doing so? Activating Kundalini is like connecting to the fast track of the internal superhighway - plugging directly into the 'mains' of universal consciousness... ..N'joy.

xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx

To me the soul is a flowing stream of consciousness, out from the source and back again. In an aligned state, it's an eternal flow of creativity, symbolised by the figure 8. You're in creative alignment with the divine, every step feels interconnected with the universe, an orchestra of synchronicity sounding in your ears. It's like every action is supported, and even when your creative manifestation is blocked in the physical world by someone or something, you're still able to appreciative the deeper significance, the deeper meaning, the higher teaching that all co-creators in the event are being invited to realise. This interconnected flow of creativity is the harmonious flow of an aligned and balanced soul. This is kundalini. We can reactivate this kundalini. And to do so will guide you on a profound journey of rediscovery of who you truly are and your place in the cosmos. You become once more an active channel for divine expression. So how do you do it? How do you reclaim your true nature?

When the breakthrough finally happens, it's a very special moment, something you'll treasure your entire life. The soul encased within the lower self, rises up the spine then reconnects higher and lower self in the third eye. Sense of separated self completely vanishes. Your true self emerges, everywhere and nowhere, penetrating the space between the spaces. Crystal clear clarity emerges. You know yourself experientially as the One. There is nothing that can match it.

Sundaze 1713

Hello, the F1 season starts this weekend with wide tired cars that corner faster but those techies fucked up again, they made it considerably more difficult to overtake, it's imbecilic! Looking at the grid for tomorrow Ferrari got closer to Mercedes but the rest are way back 2.3 sec for no 9 on the grid with Red Bull as 3rd team in no man's land 1.3 sec back on Hamilton's pole lap. Maybe Vettel can give him some fightback but it looks like a dire season ahead, Mercedes are killing the show they are still too powerful....

Ambient Soho was a record shop in London’s Berwick Street that was run by Rocket (who was also the artist Further previously here) that specialised in ambient music in the early 90s. They released a couple of limited edition EPs in 1996, from which today’s tracks are taken. The shop closed in the later 90s but the label set up to release the music – Worm Interface – is still operating today. Do go and visit and buy something.  The featured artist is Dunderhead. An odd name for an ambient act. But there you go. Turns out it was Nigel Smith. In this incarnation, he produced some dreamy jazz-influenced ambient – a genre now sadly overlooked.

2001 Ambient Soho was forced to close due to development and lived on for a few more months in side of Dragon Discs in Camden (also owned by Rocket) When Dragon Discs closed Both shops were combined and went on to be a Festival Pop up shop known as Records Rock Selling new and used vinyl at many of the uk festivals notably Green Man Big Chill Glastonbury and many more.This has been going on for the last 12 years in September 2013 a new premises was found and reopened as Vinyl at 4 Tanners Hill. SE84PJ in Deptford 10 mins walk from Greenwich and New Cross there is a Coffee Bar, Gallery and record shop.

RhoDeo 1712 Grooves


Today an American female vocal group, who were originally formed in 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although a total of 15 women have been a member over the years, the group has always been a trio. The current line-up consists of Valerie Holiday, Helen Scott and Freddie Pool. Holiday has been a member since she first joined in 1967, while Scott has been a permanent member since 1976, having previously been in the group from 1963 to 1966. The group were particularly successful in the UK, achieving 13 Top 50 hit singles between 1974 and 1985..  ..... N'joy

 Philly soul vocal group the Three Degrees started in 1963 in Philadelphia, PA. They were discovered by producer and songwriter Richard Barrett. Barrett was a key force for 1950s groups the Chantels, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, and his own group the Valentines. The original lineup was Fayette Pickney, Shirley Porter, and Linda Turner. Barrett recorded this lineup on their first single, "Gee Baby (I'm Sorry)." In 1963, Linda Turner and Shirley Porter left the group and were replaced by Helen Scott and Janet Jones. Around this time, Barrett began managing and producing Sheila Ferguson who was a high school friend of Scott. Barrett got deals for both the group and Ferguson with Swan Records. By 1966, Helen decided to leave the group and become a housewife. Sheila Ferguson took her place. She sang backup on all the Three Degrees' Swan recordings, as did the Three Degrees for her solo singles. In 1967, Valerie Holiday joined the group, while Janet Jones departed. Over the next four years, both the Three Degrees and Ferguson released many singles.

In 1970, now signed to Roulette Records, the Three Degrees scored their first national chart hit with a remake of the Chantels' "Maybe". It went to number four R&B in summer 1970. The follow-up, "I Do Take You," peaked at number seven R&B. Barrett got the group short-term deals with Warner Bros., Metromedia, and Gamble & Huff's Neptune Label. The group had a cameo in the classic 1971 movie The French Connection starring Gene Hackman and toured with Engelbert Humperdink. In 1973, Barrett worked a deal with Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International Records (PIR). The Three Degrees' first PIR single was "Dirty Ol' Man," a disco hit. A short time later, Don Cornelius, producer and host of TV's Soul Train, approached Gamble & Huff about coming up with a new theme song for his hit syndicated show. The Three Degrees were asked to do vocals at the end of the show's new theme track. After some airings, public demand forced the TV show's theme to be released as a single. "TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)" by MFSB featuring the Three Degrees went gold hitting number one R&B and holding the number one pop for two weeks during spring 1974. Meanwhile, a previously released Three Degrees single, "Year of Decision," stalled at number 74 R&B. Another MFSB/Three Degrees single, "Love Is the Message," peaked at number 42 R&B in the summer of that year. In the summer of 1974, PIR released another single on the group, "When Will I See You Again." The single went platinum, selling over two million copies, going to number four R&B and number two pop around September 1974. Their PIR debut album, The Three Degrees, was released at the end of 1974. The follow-up, "I Didn't Know," written and produced by Bunny Sigler, went to number 18 R&B in early 1975. The group performed the song on a guest appearance on the hit NBC show Sanford and Son. Their only other charting PIR single was "Take Good Care of Yourself" (number 64 R&B in summer 1975).

Around 1976, Pickney left the group and was replaced by returning member Helen Scott. CBS released their album Standing up for Love in the U.S. in 1977. In 1978, the Three Degrees were signed to European label Ariola Records. The group recorded three LPs for the label. Longtime favorites in the U.K., the group performed at Buckingham Palace for Prince Charles' 30th birthday party and they were guests at his wedding to Princess Diana. During the first half of the '80s, the Three Degrees released U.K.-issued albums, Album of Love and Live in the UK and singles, "Liar" and "A Sonnet to Love." Stock/Aitken/Waterman produced a 1985 U.K. chart hit, "The Heaven I Need," on the group for Supreme Records. In 1986, Sheila decided to leave the group and after a short period of regrouping, Valerie and Helen brought in Cynthia Garrison and set about their business again. The act recorded another live CD with Billy Paul and Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes during a TSOP tour in the summer of 1989. Scott, Holiday, and new member Cynthia Garrison recorded three albums in the 1990s.

Ever since, they have been constantly touring all over the world, occasionally recording but always working. Their hard work in the early years has held them in good stead for today’s more demanding audiences. “For us, it is still exciting and we still enjoy our work,” Valerie points out. “We are blessed with a wide age group appeal….from fifteen to sixty-five. This is why we have survived, I think. We learned and were taught how to entertain and even before we had hit records, we knew how to do our job — our choreography, our costumes, the lights…these were all things that we learned at an early age.” “I think we have done many firsts in our career.” Helen adds. “We have opened a lot of doors for other entertainers. In some cases, we may not have always succeeded but we have never given up. It still amazes me when we see teenagers singing along with our songs. And yet we still have the fans who have grown with us.”

At the end of 2010 and after more than 20 years as a Degree, Cynthia was forced to retire from the group due to medical reasons. It brought to an end the most stable period in the trio’s long history. Her place has been taken by Freddie Pool, a hugely talented and experienced vocalist who has enjoyed past success both as a solo artiste and as a member of other groups. Vocally, she is the perfect blend for both Valerie and Helen and continues the rich tradition that the Three Degrees has always represented. So it is that after more than four decades of existence, the Three Degrees can still make the claim as being the longest running female vocal group in history….see the Guinness Book of Records for confirmation of this fact! And they show no signs of slowing down!

Fayette Pinkney, an original member of the Three Degrees who lent her strong, soulful voice to the 1970s hits “When Will I See You Again?” and “T.S.O.P. (The Sound of Philadelphia),” the theme song of the television show “Soul Train,” died  in Lansdale, Pa. July 2009, she was 61.

It's no accident that the Three Degrees' career started taking off at approximately the same time the Supremes were falling apart. As this excellent collection (which contains all of the group's 1970-72 recordings for the Roulette label) makes clear, the Degrees represented the next step forward in female singing groups, and a very big step it was.
Unlike their later situation on Philadelphia International Records (and unlike the Supremes), at this point the Degrees - in their classic lineup of Fayette Pinkney, Sheila Ferguson and Valerie Holiday - weren't having any material written specifically for them. Instead, they tackle a wide array of covers here, moving as easily between eras as they do between genres. Apart from providing the title of their debut album, the Degrees' rap-prefaced version of the 1958 Chantels classic "Maybe" became their first major hit, peaking at number 4 on the US R&B chart in the summer of 1970. 3-D workouts on songs by the James Gang, Sly Stone, Joe South, Tommy James and other contemporary artists are similarly transcendent, with those trademark flawless harmonies already in full swing and beautiful solo work by each member of the group. Of particular interest is the six-minute rethink of Jimmy Webb's "MacArthur Park", which actually omits the title line made famous by Richard Harris but is if anything even more gut-wrenching than his version in its sheer emotive power. Impressive as the commercial results of its various singles may have been, it's a wonder the "Maybe" LP didn't fare a lot better even in the feverishly progressive and competitive musical atmosphere of forty-four years ago. Rounding out the first disc are alternate and/or mono versions of some tracks from "Maybe", along with non-LP singles such as "I Do Take You" and a few previously unreleased efforts, all of which are well worth hearing.

The Three Degrees' second and final Roulette "album", "So Much Love", which was released in 1975 to cash in on the group's far greater success at PIR. "Maybe" makes its second full-length appearance here, with "I Do Take You" also tossed in for good measure; but most of this material hadn't yet been released at the time, and all of it is excellent, with Stephen Stills' "Love the One You're With" and Roberta Flack's "Trade Winds" providing especially good examples of the Degrees' seemingly boundless facility. A wealth of bonus material (this time from 1971-2) brings the album up to a generous seventy-two minutes and change. Obviously anyone with the least interest in soul music of the psychedelic era will want to grab this collection; but rock, pop and even country fans will find much to enjoy herein as well. The Three Degrees may never have enjoyed the sort of Stateside chart success the Supremes had, but they were in many ways a superior and more interesting group, in which all three members got their share of the spotlight and absolute magic happened when they raised their voices in unison. No maybes about it, folks; this one belongs in your music library!

The divas of Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International stable, the Three Degrees debuted their self-titled album for the label in 1973 before they hit the mainstream with MFSB and "TSOP" the following year. And, although they are so often piggybacked on that glory, it's important to remember that this remarkable trio was already established as one of the country's premier female vocal groups. With successful sides for Roulette already under their belt, The Three Degrees found them combining their already tried and true R&B style with Gamble & Huff's trademark orchestral, instrumental flourish. It was a heavenly marriage that easily, and obviously, brought the band into the Top 40. With the lion's share of "good" material crowded on side one, the set is highlighted by the opening "Dirty Ol' Man," which brought the band's harmonies cascading over the opening strings before they descended into edgier waters. Following apace is a wonderful version of "A Woman Needs a Good Man," before closing with "When Will I See you Again" -- the gorgeous, breathless ballad that nearly topped the charts in 1974. Elsewhere, the band tempers the obvious and silly "I Like Being a Woman" with the overlooked gem "If and When." The song, one of several written by Philly International bigwig Bunny Sigler, is a rough-and-tumble ballad that heats up by merging classic '70s rock elements with the Three Degrees' girl group ethics. Although it's ultimately patchy in places, The Three Degrees was a fine introduction for the partnership between the band and the label that would put them on the map. A fine bridge between sugar soul and the sexy disco strings lurking in the band's future.

Now past their "TSOP" apogee and working well with producers Gamble & Huff, the Three Degrees bounded back into the Top 40 with 1975's International. Working across a slick set dominated by Gamble & Huff-penned songs that provided a smooth vehicle for the trio's powerhouse vocals, the Three Degrees took the pleasing "Take Good Care of Yourself" into the charts. But despite the evidence of a fine performance, it never really feels like the band really hit its stride. Both "Long Lost Lover" and the very Motown-ish "Loving Cup" are pleasant efforts but, as the songs unfold, the band seems to stagnate across an apparently endless supply of ballads. Even a reprisal of "TSOP" and a cover of Marvin Gaye's 1973 classic "Distant Lover" don't manage to stir the old heartstrings. Although they'd revamp and revive across later efforts for Ariola, the bandmembers were running out of steam in the confines of the Philadelphia International format. Stripped of their earlier fire and spark, it's obvious the Three Degrees really didn't have anything fresh to offer. However, that's not to say that this album isn't without merit -- after all, it did carve a respectful niche for itself. In another time and place, International would probably crackle with effervescence but, in retrospect, there are far better ways to sample this wonderful trio.

Hello, like the criminals of Nice and Berlin, London got a taste of muslims turning suicidal and hoping to get bonuspoints with Allah and forgiveness for their sinful life. This is a disturbing trend as the West has many Muslim 'sinners' and dark hearted Imams that send these sinners into crowds to kill as many unbelievers as possible, and be blessed by Allah. So much ignorance and not just with Muslims, God as the center of our existence doesn't judge or intervene, good or evil it's our choice and priests of any religion are pretending to be the voice God and as such should be seen as belonging to the dark forces on this planet. Jesus explicitely warned for this ("let no man come between you and God") hence his subsequent Crucifixion (Jewish priests were not amused)....

Today's artist a former bank clerk, was sick of fanzine writing -- he wanted to step out and be written about himself. His last band, the New Beatles, had done nothing; his next, Alternative TV, could scarcely do any worse. Featuring Perry on vocals, ex-Generation X drummer John Towe, Mickey Smith (bass), and former Nobodies guitarist Alex Fergusson, the band formed in March 1977, rehearsing at Throbbing Gristle's studios in Hackney -- both "Love Lies Limp" and "Alternative to NATO" were written and recorded there -- and on May 6, 1977, ATV made their live debut in Nottingham. The first lineup splintered almost immediately. Smith was replaced by New Beatle Tyrone Thomas, and on June 5 ATV opened for Wayne County's Electric Chairs in Brighton. Six gigs later, Towe quit, but not before ATV released their first single, "Love Lies Limp," as a free flexidisc with the final, August 1977 issue of Sniffin' Glue. .....N'Joy

xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx

Alternative TV were formed by Mark Perry, the founding editor of Sniffin' Glue, a punk fanzine, with Alex Fergusson.[4] Early rehearsals took place at Throbbing Gristle's Industrial Records studio with Genesis P-Orridge on drums (recordings from this period appeared, long afterwards, on the Industrial Sessions)

The band's debut on record was "Love Lies Limp", a free flexi disc issued with the final edition of Perry's Sniffin' Glue fanzine. For their first two singles Perry and Fergusson were accompanied by drummer John Towe (ex-Generation X) and Tyrone Thomas on bass; Towe later left to join The Rage and was replaced by Chris Bennett. This line-up was the most straightforwardly 'punk' version of ATV, although they combined short, fast songs with extended pieces such as "Alternatives to NATO", in which Perry read an anarchist political text and envisaged the possibility of a Soviet invasion of Britain. Shortly afterwards they released the "How Much Longer"/"You Bastard" 7" in December 1977. The A-side was a pointed critique of punk style: "How much longer will people wear/Nazi armbands and dye their hair?"

At the end of 1977, Perry sacked his chief collaborator and co-writer Fergusson. The latter went on to form the short-lived Cash Pussies and, a few years later, Psychic TV along with Genesis P-Orridge. Tyrone Thomas switched to guitar, later replaced by Kim Turner, while Dennis Burns joined on bass. A dub-influenced single, "Life After Life", was released, followed by the band's debut album, The Image Has Cracked, both featuring Jools Holland guesting on piano.

By the end of 1978, only Perry and Burns remained from the previous line-up, although ATV used additional musicians live and in the studio. The band's second album, Vibing Up the Senile Man (Part One), saw the band take a more explicitly experimental direction, which alienated both the music press and audiences. A recording of one gig which ended in a violent stage invasion can be heard on the cassette-only release Scars on Sunday. A live LP was released, documenting their tour with commune-dwelling progressive band Here and Now, marking the band's further movement away from the punk/new wave scene. A final single "The Force Is Blind" featured Anno from Here and Now on additional vocals.

Alternative TV soon evolved into the avant-garde project The Good Missionaries (taking the name from a track on the Vibing album), releasing one live album, Fire From Heaven, in 1979. Perry also joined the experimental duo The Door and the Window, releasing some EPs and a studio album, Detailed Twang. The following year, Perry released a solo album, Snappy Turns, before he, Burns and Fergusson briefly reformed Alternative TV along with former members of Fergusson's Cash Pussies in 1981. The reconstituted ATV released one album, Strange Kicks, a venture into light pop songs unlike any of their previous work, produced by Richard Mazda. The album was indifferently received, while a contemporary review by AllMusic panned the album, writing that the record, along with ATV's later work, "falls a little flat amidst the confusion and veer[s] closer to the new wave sound than most punks would dare to venture."

From 1981 to 1982 Perry had a new project, The Reflections, a band with Nag from The Door and the Window, Karl Blake (of The Lemon Kittens) and Grant Showbiz, among others. They released one album, Slugs and Toads, and a single, "4 Countries", before disintegrating. Perry reformed ATV in 1985. This line up started with Karl Blake, Steve Cannell and Allison Philips. Martin 'Protag' Neish and then Clive Giblin featured later on guitar and ATV released further records over the following decade with varying line-ups, Perry being the only constant member. Another line-up followed with James Kyllo, Steve Cannell and Dave Morgan, which led to the release of "Sol" and "Dragon Love".

ATV's last studio album for over a decade, Revolution, was released in 2001, followed in 2003 by the official bootleg album Viva La Rock'n' Roll – consisting of live performances recorded in the UK, France, Germany and the US. In 2004, Perry recorded the Ramones song "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" for a single and an Argentinian Ramones tribute album.

Their first studio album in fourteen years, "Opposing Forces", was released through Lost Moment/Public Domain on 10 July 2015.

Viva La Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Complete Deptford Fun City Recordings 1977-1980, a box-set that rounds up the first four albums from Perry and his ever-rotating cast of characters. His presence could be felt in many forms, from Alternative TV to the more broadly-titled Good Missionaries to his first-ever solo set under his own name, but the sloppy, held-together-with-tape recordings prove powerfully intriguing. A lot of it isn’t great. Some of it is fantastic. Yet that enthusiasm and excitement that reverberates through every recording is what ultimately what drives it forward.

Starting with a nuttily bombastic synth intro (courtesy of Squeeze's Jools Holland!) which sounds just like the music punk was supposed to be destroying might seem an unusual move for a band founded by the guy who chronicled the original London explosion. But it's that very contrariness in Mark Perry which made the original Alternative TV such a thrilling prospect, and which makes The Image Has Cracked an unfairly neglected classic from the late-'70s upheaval. Seizing on the promise of punk as being a new means of expression rather than a new set of musical rules to be adhered to, Perry, along with a solid-enough band, whip up a series of incendiary pieces that explore as much as they thrash, caught somewhere between the Fall's divine ramalama and three-chord snarls. "Alternatives" captures the tense spirit of the band's work perfectly, a live recording where over a gentle groove Perry invites audience members to come up and "use the soapbox," only to have a bunch of chancers and screamers talk a lot about nothing much at all, until Perry spits vitriol at a pair of people in a punch-up and complains about "diluted sh*t." As an expression of going down defiant while punk became a new fashion, it's fierce and brilliant. A good half of the album comes from the same concert, including the harrowing final track, "Splitting in Two," as perfect a capturing of nails-dug-in-flesh paranoia and indecision as anything in music history, revived as a live favorite years later by the Chameleons. The studio cuts include a solid run-through of Zappa's "Why Don't You Do Me Right?" and the closest ATV ever came to an anthemic single, "Action Time Vision." The 1994 version adds 11 extra tracks to the original album, including the reggae-inflected "Love Lies Limp" and "Life After Life" singles, among many others, making it the edition of Image to look for.

On the second album of Alternative TV, Mark Perry and friends did to punk exactly what the movement had intended for the establishment. About-facing punk and turning it on its ear would be a difficult task in 1980, and while Alternative TV's peers headed down new wave paths or into commercialism, the authors of the quintessential "You Bastard" single (regarded by many, John Peel included, as a classic) and, of course, The Image Has Cracked LP, which remains on a par with the first Sex Pistols or Clash albums for genre-defining punk, who would have expected a follow-up as avant-garde abstraction that challenges P.I.L's Second Edition for absolute left-field swing? With Genesis P-Orridge in the ranks, Vibing Up the Senile Man became closer to free improvisation and avant-garde jazz without a punk anthem in sight, and a dub edge to some of the tracks of the double LP suggest that Alternative TV had similar modernist aspirations to John Lydon's post-Sex Pistols project. Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa spring to mind as much as Pere Ubu and the Red Krayola, who were similarly exploring the avant-garde liberties of post-punk and disappointing the punks and record industry alike. What Vibing Up the Senile Man represents two decades later is a door opening on multi-faceted post-rock music -- which draws on avant-garde, noise, and jazz and arguably makes more sense in the context of year 2000 as a musical treasure much more than in 1980, when it seemed simply a spit in the eye to the industry that codified punk.

One of the most Experimental Post-Punk records around. There's some funky bass rhythms, some guitar noodling, some dissonant organ playing, a very creepy atmosphere, some uncomfortable chimes, some really haunting, at times ghostly vocals, a bunch of Industrial guitar noise, some good old Free Jazz sax, electronic noise, and a lot of dissonance. This, the Good Missionaries only released album, is amongst the best of Mark Perry's side projects with tracks such The Radio Story / Strange Looks and Release The Natives amongst his greatest work, despite the album as a whole sometimes threatening to disappear up it’s own weird ass. Some of the tracks sound like Funk Rock getting an unhealthy dose of radiation. It's quite a warped experience, and definitely an album that's very disorienting.

With his 1980 debut solo LP, Snappy Turns, Perry continued this experimental streak, in true punk form. Perry was sick of touring and the whole scene, eventually retreating to make his own solo set, Snaffy Turns, in 1980. Initially conceived as a more commercial record than anything he’s done since Vibing, he sort of lives up to that goal, as the almost-jazzy title track and the guitar-and-keyboard oddball that is “You Know” adhere to somewhat-conventional structures, but the oboe-driven “The Object is to Love” shows that that ever-strange side of Perry’s personality will never be fully quelled, even as the spoken-word sax-and-bass viber “Inside” feels like an otherworldly amalgam of the score to Manos: The Hands of Fate and The Velvet Underground’s “The Gift”. Snaffy almost feels like a revistation of every turns and style Perry had accomoplished up to this point, which makes it as entertaining as it does frustrating.

RhoDeo 1712 Roots


The music of Brazil encompasses various regional music styles influenced by African, European and Amerindian forms. After 500 years of history, Brazilian music developed some unique and original styles such as samba, bossa nova, MPB, sertanejo, pagode, tropicalia, choro, maracatu, embolada (coco de repente), mangue bit, funk carioca (in Brazil simply known as Funk), frevo, forró, axé, brega, lambada, and Brazilian versions of foreign musical genres, such as Brazilian rock and rap.

Today's artist while many of the performers during the heyday of Tropicalia and the rise of MPB (música popular brasileira) opted for a more radical stance in their challenge to Brazil's political and cultural authorities, artists like Jorge Ben took a more understated approach. Rather than use overly theatrical performance to shock the audience or write songs loaded with political content, Ben became known as one of the country's great musical alchemists, a furiously eclectic songwriter who combined elements of indigenous Brazilian music with a groove from the west coast of Africa.  With that he became one of the most respected and resilient figures in Brazilian pop.  ...  N'Joy

Born (March 22, 1945) Jorge Duilio Lima Menezes in Rio de Janeiro, he first took the stage name Jorge Ben after his mother's name (of Ethiopian origin) but in the 1980s changed it to Jorge Ben Jor (commonly written Benjor). Jorge Ben obtained his first pandeiro (Brazil's most popular type of tambourine) when he was thirteen, and two years later, was singing in a church choir. He also took part as a pandeiro player in the blocos of Carnaval, and from eighteen years of age, he began performing at parties and nightclubs with the guitar that his mother gifted him. He received the nickname "Babulina", after their enthusiastic pronunciation of Ronnie Self's song "Bop-A-Lena". Was presented to Tim Maia by Erasmo Carlos, soon discovered that Maia was also known for the same reason. It was at one of those clubs in which he performed that his musical career took off. In 1963, Jorge came on stage and sang "Mas Que Nada" to a small crowd that happened to include an executive from the recording company, Philips. One week later, Jorge Ben's first single was released.

The hybrid rhythms that Jorge employed brought him some problems at the start of his career, when Brazilian music was split between the rockier sounds of the Jovem Guarda and traditional samba with its complex lyrics. But as that phase in Brazilian pop music history passed, and bossa nova became better known throughout the world, Ben rose to prominence.
Holdings both television programs O Fino da Bossa and Jovem Guarda from Rede Record, after being reprimanded by the production of "O Fino da Bossa", chose to participate in the Jovem Guarda, soon after, joined the program Divino, Maravilhoso from TV Tupi, presented by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil.

Jorge Ben's first public appearances were in small festivals organised by his friends, where bossa nova and rock and roll predominated. As with most musicians of the time, Ben was initially influenced by João Gilberto even though he was quite innovative in his own right. The aforementioned song, "Mas Que Nada", was his first big hit in Brazil, and remains to this day the most played song in the United States sung entirely in Portuguese.[citation needed] Outside of Brazil, the song is better known in cover versions by Sérgio Mendes and the Tamba Trio. The song has also been reinterpreted by jazz luminaries such as Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie and Al Jarreau; as well as other samba artists of the time, such as Elza Soares. His musical work has been vastly sampled by music producers and DJ's, and covered by many bands in a variety of genres such as heavy metal, disco, rock, reggae, jazz, drum and bass, house music and more.

In 1969, Jorge Ben released his self-titled album amid the excitement of the cultural and musical Tropicália movement. The album featured Trio Mocotó as his backing band, who would go on to launch a successful career on the back of their association with Ben. The album was noted for "País Tropical," one of his most famous compositions, although it would be Wilson Simonal who would take his recording of the song to the top of the charts in Brazil that same year. Instead, the song "Charles, Anjo 45", also from the self-titled album, would become Ben's biggest self-performed chart hit of the year.

In the 1970s, Jorge Ben released his most esoteric and experimental albums, most notably A Tábua de Esmeralda in 1974 and Solta o Pavão in 1975. In 1976, he released one of his most popular albums: "África Brasil," a fusion of funk and samba which relied more on the electric guitar than previous efforts. This album also features a remake of his previously released song "Taj Mahal," from which Rod Stewart's 1979 hit "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? was plagiarized (a matter that he claimed was settled out of court in his favor).

In 1989, Jorge changed his recording label as well as his artistic name, becoming Jorge Benjor (or Jorge Ben Jor). At the time, it was said that there were numerological reasons for his change in name; other sources say it was in response to an incident where some of his royalties accidentally went to American guitarist George Benson. In 2002, Jorge Ben contributed to the critically acclaimed Red Hot + Riot, a compilation CD created by the Red Hot Organization in tribute to the music and work of Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti, that raised money for various charities devoted to raising AIDS awareness and fighting the disease. He collaborated with fellow hip-hop artists Dead Prez, Talib Kweli, and Bilal to remake the famous song by Fela Kuti, "Shuffering and Shmiling," for the CD.

In 2006, a remake of Ben's "Mas Que Nada" became an international chart hit for Sérgio Mendes with The Black Eyed Peas after being used by Nike in a global TV advertisement during the 2006 FIFA World Cup; this remake (the second time Mendes had covered the track) reached the Top 10 in several European countries, including the UK and Germany, in addition to reaching Number 1 in the Netherlands. Jorge Ben is also a big fan of Flamengo, a Brazilian football club, located in Rio de Janeiro, which counts Zico, Junior and Leandro among their former star players. Ben's interest in football carries over to his music, as many of his songs deal with the subject, such as "Flamengo," "Camisa 10 da Gávea," "Ponta De Lança Africano (Umbabarauma)," "Zagueiro," and "Filho Maravilha."

On July 7, 2007 he performed at the Brazilian leg of Live Earth in Rio de Janeiro. On March 20, 2011 his name was mentioned in President Barack Obama's speech in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the Theatro Municipal (Rio de Janeiro). President Barack Obama quoted: "You are, as Jorge Ben-Jor sang, “A tropical country, blessed by God, and beautiful by nature.”"

This is an underrated record, Ben with a super-tight band revisiting a lot of his earlier material. Even today his shows follow the format presented here -- medleys of some of his biggest hits that flow into each other seamlessly. Some people have commented that the versions here are inferior to the originals, but I feel that is beside the point. This is Jorge Ben as he was coming into his sound associated with the Black Power movement in Brazil, very soulful stuff, reinventing his formative 'samba-rock' / bossa material.

A Tábua de Esmeralda (together with Jorge Ben's 1976 album África Brasil) could be said to represent the creative culmination of his astonishing '70s. The music that Ben recorded during this period had tremendous influence on Brazilian musicians at that time and to a great extent helped to ignite the creative explosion that took place in the Brazilian samba rock and samba soul scenes during the '70s. The sound on this particular album is very simple, with the songs being driven by Ben's characteristic acoustic guitar playing together with a bass guitar and percussion. Floating in the background on several tracks are also some nice string arrangements and a double bass. The melodies are magnificently crafted, managing to be catchy and free-flowing without ever feeling banal or predictable. One of many great songs on this album is the upbeat opening track, "Os Alquimistas Estão Chegando," with its funny lyrics about alchemists. Other especially fine moments are the space-themed "Errare Humanum Est," "Zumbi," with its Africa-inspired lyrics, "Cinco Minutos," and "Magnolia." A Tábua de Esmeralda belongs in the record collection of any fan of Ben's music and is also a great starting point for someone who wants an introduction to his work.

An overlooked and underestimated work from a great brazilian artist, Solta o Pavão may be one of the best works of Jorge Ben. The album, which, according to Ben himself, is a continuation of the classic A Tábua De Esmeralda, of 1974.  Yet, he introduced several innovations - occasional ARP strings or flute arrangements, prominent e-bass, but he generally kept the sound close to that of his last few albums. There are no bad songs in this album. I would highlight Zagueiro, Dorothy and Jesualda - awesome works. Luz polarizada and Cuidado com o bulldog are a bit uninteresting, but the rest of the album is excellent. Very recommended in spite of its little fame or recognition.

Recorded with little rehearsal and only two acoustic guitars (plus a percussionist) for accompaniment, Gil e Jorge focuses squarely on the individual talents of Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben as musicians, vocalists, performers, and improvisers. Of course, they prove up to the task. The nine lengthy tracks on the album (it was originally configured as a double LP) feature Gil and Ben interacting to a high degree, trading lines and often repeating them several times. The best tracks here -- "Nega," "Taj Mahal," and "Meu Glorioso Sao Cristovao" -- are highly rhythmic and have the heft of ancient Brazilian folksongs. Unfortunately, there isn't another record in Gil's discography even remotely close to it.

RhoDeo 1712 Kundalini 3


There's a profound spiritual possibility open to all people: the opportunity to be absolutely connected to the source of all life, and have that energy steer us in the direction of destiny. Kundalini is the natural creative alignment with the divine; it is our inherent birthright that most have been separated from. How do you unify lower and higher self so that you may reactivate your Kundalini? What would be the advantages of doing so? Activating Kundalini is like connecting to the fast track of the internal superhighway - plugging directly into the 'mains' of universal consciousness... ..N'joy.

xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx

To me the soul is a flowing stream of consciousness, out from the source and back again. In an aligned state, it's an eternal flow of creativity, symbolised by the figure 8. You're in creative alignment with the divine, every step feels interconnected with the universe, an orchestra of synchronicity sounding in your ears. It's like every action is supported, and even when your creative manifestation is blocked in the physical world by someone or something, you're still able to appreciative the deeper significance, the deeper meaning, the higher teaching that all co-creators in the event are being invited to realise. This interconnected flow of creativity is the harmonious flow of an aligned and balanced soul. This is kundalini. We can reactivate this kundalini. And to do so will guide you on a profound journey of rediscovery of who you truly are and your place in the cosmos. You become once more an active channel for divine expression. So how do you do it? How do you reclaim your true nature?

When the breakthrough finally happens, it's a very special moment, something you'll treasure your entire life. The soul encased within the lower self, rises up the spine then reconnects higher and lower self in the third eye. Sense of separated self completely vanishes. Your true self emerges, everywhere and nowhere, penetrating the space between the spaces. Crystal clear clarity emerges. You know yourself experientially as the One. There is nothing that can match it.

Hello, Chuck Berry, guitarist, singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music, has died age 90,. With songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism and music featuring guitar solos and showmanship that were a major influence on subsequent rock music. The world awaits his final album, Chuck.

On a different note i watched Milan San Remo cycling final this afternoon, superman Peter Sagan rode solo 20 seconds away from the hunting peloton, unfortunately there were two he had been unable to dislodge enough from his wheel and as these things go one of them, that sneaky Polak Kwiatkowski managed to just outsprint him. Disgusting victory, no honor, a leech this Kwiatkowski, but apparently in cycling this is acceptable behavior, well not in my book, not that anyone needs to feel sorry for Peter Sagan he wins plenty of races, but as a viewer i had to see a deserved victory stolen and the thief honored.

Today's Artist stands for two decades of experimental electronic, dubtech and consequently pushing dubhouse tracks for intense nights on the floor. In this process the productive artist likes to integrate himself in different artistic constellations with project pseudonyms such as Saafi Brothers and Aural Float into ambient, space and experimental sound scapes… Next to his music projects Gabriel also works with Aural Float on audiovisual concepts: as a team they did the artistic supervision of Spacenight, a prototype of an integral TV-concept, utilizing spectacular film- and documentary footage from outer space with music made on earth. With an open mind and always in a search for fresh musical experiences, Gabriel keeps on exploring electronic music. With Dr. Motte, Gabriel Le Mar started mixing electronic music, focussing on the pure aspects of dance. Still following that path that led them together searching for the soul in the machines, the music lovers are playing with the various settings inside their electronic devices to get the sound and atmosphere they were after for. ....N'Joy

Gabriel Le Mar is one of the high profile musicproducers and lives and works in Frankfurt/Germany. He is bringing together different musical styles such as Dub, Techno and "electronic leftfield music", which you can hear in his productions. Gabriel was born in Germany, the son of Greek parents, and grew up in Berlin. Around 1984, he gets his first stage experience as a professional club dj and bassman of a band experimenting with electronic sounds. In 1987, Gabriel studied at the HdK, Berlin (University of Fine Arts) and got a diploma in "Society and Economy Communication". Then he worked as an Art-Director in advertising agencies but could never quit producing music and soon he produced soundtrax for commercials still today. 1987, in Berlin he gets in contact with the art "pop project" Bamboo Industry and they released longplayers on a major label plus an extensive tour with appearances at big festivals. Besides "Bamboo Industry", Gabriel is also part of the Berlin based experimental electronic project, "Cosmic Trigger" with Mike V.A.M.P. from the "Märtini Brös".

1992, Gabriel moved to Frankfurt and became founder of the electronic project Saafi Brothers. Together with Frankfurt based producer "Michael Kohlbecker" (Eternal Basement), Gabriel did a remix for the German number one hit "Sie ist weg" by the hip hop group "Die Fantastischen Vier". 1993, inspired by the mix techniques of "Jamaican dub music", Gabriel was also a member of the successful local "dub club concept" Serious Dropout with the producers "Jammin´ Unit" (Air Liquide), "Tricky Cris" and "The Reverend". The unique connection of dub reggae, electronics, ambient and techno sounds featured musicians and producers from Jamaica (like Yah Meek) and the UK (like Rootsman) and they released 3 albums on a major label.

1994, soon, Gabriel followed this concept not only at the monthly dub nights in Frankfurt, but also at other events, including DJs more influenced by techno and electronic sounds. He met Alex Azary, mastermind of the XS-Club, at this time one of the leading venues for ambient and chill out sounds in Europe.

"Second Skin", the first vinyl release from the album "Inner City Codes", starts with "deep ambient dubhouse", syncopic chords and gently demanding percussive beats. A sensual form of dub allowing memories of the "Basic Channel series"....

The origins of "Subsonic Park" date back about 10 years before. In the context of Sven Väths regular gigs at the UK cult club Orbit, Leeds, they were DJing on the second floor. "At our gigs, my partner used to be at the turntables and I played with my synthies and samplers in real-time. This way, our shows were always a mixture of DJ performance and live act. Now, this special mix of club music and experimental electronic music also characterizes the productions by Subsonic Park as far as tempo, deepness, syncopic chords and dub sequences are concerned.  2009 is a very productive year for Gabriel. His new album Dubwize sounds refreshingly variable and discrete, caused by an uncoerced approach in the studio and conveyed by the input received by the creative exchange processes with his project partners and last but not least, the musical socialization which encompasses rich influences from "King Tubby" to "Andy Scott" is definitely a factor which helps gabriel to stay refreshingly flexible. In this process the productive artist likes to integrate himself in different artistic constellations with project pseudonyms and Co-ops with "Dr. Motte", "Pete Namlook", "Justin Sequence" and "Subsonic Park".

2010 African funk and "african musical traditions" and culture influenced Gabriel in many ways.
 On his new album Jump Cuts Gabriel Le Mar co-opted again with singers and songwriters from South-Africa like "Busi Mhlongo", "Lungiswa Plaatjies", "Madala Kunene" and "Mantombe Matotiyani" from Amampondo, one of Nelson Mandela`s favourite bands. Fusing techhouse and dub influences with the local style of south african music like Kwaito, Maskanda and traditional Zulu music into modern club sound. The result is a fusion of ideas that became evident through the characteristic expression of these artists, whose vocal performances oscillate between traditional to contemporary, and that are merged in the techhouse mix with a soul and dub feel. "It`s about combining these styles, the physical energy of "digital club and dancefloor sounds" with hypnotic afro-rhythms and the vocal-power. It`s about to push the musical styles and to find ways to intensifying our tracks both emotionally and meaningwise"

2011 Gabriel Le Mar nices up with his album Level, it features Gabriel´s affinity to Techno, TechHouse and Detroit influences, while Dub sound is what connects the tunes in all the variations. All tracks are made for the floor but also work in pure listening fun if you like music that can tell stories. Moody floating sounds, bassy grooves and atmospheric filterworks as well as danceable deepness are the carrying elements of Level. Gabriel was looking to find the right balance of emotion in "sound and groove" and to give space for floating lyricism on the music. Level features vocal performances with lyrics by his friends Ingo Ito and George DIN, who are both excellent musicians and writers. On Level, Gabriel Le Mar exposed himself on different levels and put the focus more and more on the groovy DubTechno beat and refer more to "atmospheric Detroit Techno". This special mix of club music and "experimental deepness", syncopic chords and dub sequences characterizes his productions.

2012 With his new vinyl label Dub2Dust Records, Gabriel steps on a new ground, releasing electronic dance music with a special focus on the various colours of deep DubTechno and "Dub inspired TechHouse". The dub-feeling is clearly the inspiration behind the general flavor of the dub2dust sound and will demonstrate innovative efforts to offer interesting hybrids of techno/house music. Dub2Dust is operated by Gabriel Le Mar and Carsten Schorr. the sound: from Electro-Ambient to Dub-inspiered Minimal-Tech-House....2012 Lifes filled with music Dr. Motte and Gabriel Le Mar still following the path that they have led them together, searching for the soul in the machines. On different sessions the two tracks The Breeze and Puttin` On The Green Hat were recorded at Gab`s lab in Frankfurt, playing with the various settings inside their electronic devices to get the sound and atmosphere they were after for. The two EP`s draw its energy from the deep and dubby tension to put the listener in a trance-like state and were release on Motte`s imprint Praxxiz.

This first collaboration of Pete Namlook and Gabriel Le Mar is a perfect combination of two worlds in Chill-Out and Ambient. While both artists have composed and released electronic music for over a decade, each followed a different path. While Namlook was often more on the beatless path of deep instrumental music, Le Mar had a strong connection to dub music and percussive content. Both developed their personal style and now combined their ideas to a perfect match in music. Percussive, melodic, organic monochrome, even a minimalistic electro-techno track is part of this album. The variety of unique organic music with its intense quality, makes you listen to it over and over again.

Subsonic Park is a side project from 2/3 of The Saafi Brothers, Alex Azary and Gabriel Le Mar. In summer 2007 Subsonic- Park again started to play and perform live and in clubs (with own areas as at top events like TimeWarp/Mannheim, Pollerwiesen/Köln, or Merkwuerdigen Verhalten/Frankfurt, as well as with their residency at Cocoon Club Frankfurt), and went on up to 14 hours lasting audiovisual journeys with the excited crowds...Inspired and driven by those experiences, Alex and Gabriel consequently developed their Subsonic Park sound by their deep and thriving mixes between deephouse, techhouse and dubtech and now expressed this progression on their new album Inner City Codes. So, with those two guys you expect something special, right? I'm happy to report you get in spades on Inner City Codes. It could easily be a Saafi Brothers release. There's the impeccable, extremely wide bandwidth, with deep bass, along with soaring jazzy interludes that are so rich and complex, with no cliches.
