RhoDeo 2113 Expanse 35

 Hello,

 

Here today, naturally my mission of trying to breakthough the wall of nonsense build by the supposed smartest men on the planet is continuing as chinks start to appear, their arrogant stupidity set us back decades if not more, electro-magnetics is clean energy and would have delivered us not only flying cars, but flying saucers aswell and who knows a pathway into other dimensions..Meanwhile i got a request to continue the Expanse, and as this is one of the greatest SF series of our days and within it Abaddon's Gate one of it's highlights no reason to stop there then, so i won't...N Joy..

Before Einstein created his unique theorems on relativity, deflating Newton’s theories on gravity, Nikola Tesla posited the idea that electricity and energy were responsible for almost all cosmic phenomena. Tesla saw energy and electricity as an “incompressible fluid” of constant quantity that could neither be destroyed nor created.

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.

Solar Energy is Our Future
by Mathias Hüfner

Climate change is forcing our society to switch from fossil fuels to climate neutral fuels. Wind energy and photovoltaic will not be enough to satisfy the growing hunger for energy of an ever larger world population. As a result, nuclear energy comes back into focus. During the nuclear fission of uranium, however, highly radioactive fission products occur that emit biologically harmful alpha radiation over thousands of years. The safe storage of this waste for such long periods of time is an unsolved problem. That is why the generation of energy from nuclear fusion (transmutation) is an alternative, since no alpha radiation occurs with light atomic nuclei and the electron radiation decays very quickly.
Classic fusion experiments

Based on the classic solar model, which assumes that the sun is a fiery gas ball, inside which hydrogen fuses to helium and the heat is transported to the surface by neutrinos, Andrei Sakharov started his first attempts at the Moscow Kurchatov Institute in 1952 for technical nuclear fusion. Its principle was the inclusion of a plasma ring in a magnetic field, which should be heated up in the magnetic field enough to start the nuclear fusion. The idea was that after the ignition, the fusion would continue by itself, as had been observed with nuclear fission. Therefore, the experiments were designed for pulse operation. This principle was named ‚Tokamak‘. It is short for „тороидальная камера в магнитных катушках“ (toroidalnaja kamera w magnitnych katuschkach) translates Thoroidal Chamber Into Magnetic Coils.

However, there were two problems with this principle. The first was that the Lorentz force swirled the plasma and the chamber walls cooled the plasma. The swirling was finally countered with a complicated magnetic field design that was modeled on a multi-twisted Möbius tape. This created a helical magnetic field. This principle was called the Stellarator, meant a machine which works like a star. However, more than 60 fruitless years had to pass before the new principle was decided.

On December 10, 2015, a short flash of light in the form of a helium plasma was finally generated for the first time on the Tokamak Stellarator Wendelstein 7-X fusion generator in Greifswald, Germany. To carry out this experiment, it took 9 years of construction, in which several hundred tons of material were used. The project devoured over a billion euros.

On June 25, 2018, the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics issued a press release: Stellarator record in fusion product: „Jetzt hat Wendelstein 7-X einen Rekord aufgestellt. Denn es erreichte nie zuvor gemessene Höchstwerte für das sogenannte Fusionsprodukt. Dieses Produkt aus Ionentemperatur, Plasmadichte und Energieeinschlusszeit gibt an, wie nahe man den Reaktorwerten für ein brennendes Plasma kommt. In den Testdurchgängen des Jahres 2017 wurde das Plasma im Reaktor auf rund 40 Millionen Grad Ionentemperatur aufgeheizt und hatte eine Dichte von 0,8 x 1020 Teilchen pro Kubikmeter.“ Up to 75 megajoules of heating energy were used for the heating and the plasma survived 2 seconds. However, there was still no sign of fusion. Wendelstein 7-X is currently out of service and is being renovated.

A great technical achievement, as you would think, only our sun is a G2 star and there are only 5600 degrees on the surface and there are no traces of helium in its atmosphere. But inside hydrogen is said to burn at 15 million degrees to helium. If that were true, the sun would be a giant hydrogen bomb that should have exploded.

Not much can be known about the interior of the sun. The core may be made of liquid calcium. The density of the sun and the spectral class support this assumption. What forces should hold this bomb together? Ironically, the weakest of the four classic forces, gravitation? You can doubt it. The temperatures necessary for nuclear reactions can be found in the solar corona.
Theoretical considerations

According to Boltzmann, the kinetic energy of the atoms is a function of the temperature. From this, the mean velocity of a proton in the plasma can be estimated at a corresponding temperature. According to Boltzmann, this results in a speed in one direction of v = √ (kT / 2m) and at 40 million degrees, as the Stellarator has reached, that is around 400km/s. This is about the speed at which the solar wind enters the earth’s atmosphere. The protons should collide at this speed to fuse. However, this will not happen if they race parallel through the thorax of the Stellarator. The Stellarator principle is based on a closed system. According to the 2nd law of thermodynamics, entropy will only grow in it. However, this means that no structures can form. A nuclear fusion is therefore impossible. But in reality the Stellarator is not a closed system, energy is constantly being supplied to it, but in order to reach a high temperature, scientists are concerned that no energy can flow away. The ingenious Prigogine teaches, however, that in an open system the entropy of the system is the sum of the external and internal entropy and the external entropy is made up of the difference between the introduced and the removed entropy of the open system. Now you can see that the external entropy at the Stellarator is larger than the internal one. In order to build up a structure and to start transmutation, entropy must be extracted in the form of electrons, but this is not intended for the Stellarator.

Einstein, in his delusion, having to symmetrize Maxwell’s equations, banished electrodynamics from the cosmos with the Lorentz transformation, because he did not want to admit that this transformation is a projective transformation, that is, a mapping. He thus strengthened the position of Christianity and Newtonian mechanics and only relied on the gravitational forces, which Immanuel Velikovsky criticized, in discussions with Einstein in the last months of his life.1

Ralph E. Juergens developed an electric sun model as early as 1979.2 Already in 1972 he wrote: “It is interesting to note that the calculated energy density of cosmic rays in our galaxy is comparable to the total energy density of electromagnetic radiation, including starlight.” 3  He recognized the granules on the surface of the sun as anode tufts and an indication of a self-organizing open system. This model was significantly developed by Don Scott. His book “The Electric Sky” 4  was published in 2006.

Don Scott dealt with the questions of why there are two types of solar wind, which electrical process can bring the solar wind to a standstill over two days and what accelerates the solar wind towards Earth. Can sunspots be integrated into the model? Scott believes that the fast solar wind comes from the photospherical clusters and the slow wind comes from the sun spots around the equator. With his transistor model of the sun, he can explain the different speeds and densities of slow and fast solar wind. The solar wind has an average proton density of about 6 particles per cm3 with a fluctuation range of 3 particles per cm3 in a calm sun, as can be seen from http://spaceweather.com. However, the electric sun model had the disadvantage compared to the classic sun model. It could explain a large part of the phenomena observed on the sun, but it could not explain nuclear fusion.

Don Scott was able to identify the butterfly nebula as a Birkeland current constricted by the pinch effect. If you compare the Wendelstein experiment with the butterfly nebula, which represents a star birth, you immediately notice that the construction of the butterfly nebula is much simpler than a Stellarator. In the visible part of the Birkeland current of this nebula, especially in the Z-pinch node, there is a solid body that opposes the hydrogen gas and the protons. This resistance causes a large change in speed in the current. It’s like when a traffic jam suddenly occurs on the highway. Protons have no brakes, so collisions are inevitable. A mass collapse occurs. The entrained hydrogen molecules crash into each other and ions of higher atomic weight are created indiscriminately, unlike at the LHC in Geneva, where the protons are pulverized due to the maximum energy. While the ions are held up by the solid, the electrons penetrate into the body and out of the side almost unchecked.

At this point we have to come back to Maxwell’s equations because they represent the way forward for modern physics. We find two vortices described there, one magnetic and one electric. Nothing is said about their size. As an open system considered div E describes the entrance. The entropy removed is the electromagnetic radiation, which is not explicitly stated. The magnetic vortex is technically represented by a ferrite ring. We used to use such rings as ferrite core memories in computers for one bit. In its technical form, the electrical vortex is usually a copper coil. We call the combination of a ferrite core and two copper coils a transformer.

The ingenious inventor Nicola Tesla first generated radio waves with such a transformer in 1890 by sending an alternating current through the coil. Nicola Tesla has almost completely disappeared from our consciousness, although he has achieved a much greater achievement for humanity than Albert Einstein. He was the one who laid the foundations of AC technology and thus the basis for our modern energy industry.

To generate light waves, one can assume that similar structures to the Tesla transformer are necessary, but they are much smaller due to the much shorter wavelength. Atoms should work similarly to small Tesla transformers if the theory of quantum mechanics did not block our view of them.

Quantum mechanics is essentially a theory of probability. Probability statements are incomplete statements from which no causal conclusions can be drawn, which is why Einstein rejected them. However, atoms are very concrete objects whose quantitative and qualitative properties are clearly delineated. I consider quantum mechanics to be completely unsuitable as an explanatory model for a single atom. On the contrary, it is a rape of physics. It is different when you look at the mass of the electrons. There is no longer a clear delimitation of individual electrons. Only probability statements do help here.

Wal Thornhill: Big Bang – Time to Wipe the Chalkboard Clean

Scientists generally use the term "crisis in cosmology" to describe the numerous and growing evidences that contradict or undermine the Big Bang theory. For decades, numerous scientific papers have been published on the discordancy between the so-called expansion rate in the “early universe,” and the expansion rate in the “later Universe.” In fact, recently the Keck Observatory issued a press release on the reported most reliable verification to date that the discordancy is real. And as we've reported ad nauseam on this series, the cosmological crisis runs much deeper and includes "surprising" discoveries at all scales throughout the cosmos.

In part one of this two-part presentation, physicist Wal Thornhill discusses some of the foundational problems with the standard cosmological model, and the real alternatives that the Electric Universe offers.

The Expanse is a series of science fiction novels (and related novellas and short stories) by James S. A. Corey, the joint pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The first novel, Leviathan Wakes, was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2012. The series as a whole was nominated for the Best Series Hugo Award in 2017.

As of 2019, The Expanse is made up of eight novels and eight shorter works - three short stories and five novellas. At least nine novels were planned, as well as two more novellas. The series was adapted for television by the Syfy Network, also under the title of The Expanse, then they dropped the ball despite the succes of the series, i suspect the whole thing got too serious (expensive) so once again Syfy network proved they can't handle success. Anyway fans were outraged and got Amazon Prime to pick it up for a fourth and fifth series and considering the mountain of money Jeff Bezos sits on i suspect several more as long as the fans keep cheering.

The Expanse is set in a future in which humanity has colonized much of the Solar System, but does not have interstellar travel. In the asteroid belt and beyond, tensions are rising between Earth's United Nations, Mars, and the outer planets.

The series initially takes place in the Solar System, using many real locations such as Ceres and Eros in the asteroid belt, several moons of Jupiter, with Ganymede and Europa the most developed, and small science bases as far out as Phoebe around Saturn and Titania around Uranus, as well as well-established domed settlements on Mars and the Moon.

As the series progresses, humanity gains access to thousands of new worlds by use of the ring, an artificially sustained Einstein-Rosen bridge or wormhole, created by a long dead alien race. The ring in our solar system is two AU from the orbit of Uranus, and passing through it leads to a hub of starless space approximately one million kilometers across, with more than 1,300 other rings, each with a star system on the other side. In the center of the hub, which is also referred to as the "slow zone", an alien space station controls the gates and can also set instantaneous speed limits on objects inside of the hub as a means of defense.


The story is told through multiple main point-of-view characters. There are two POV characters in the first book and four in books 2 through 5. In the sixth and seventh books, the number of POV characters increases, with several characters having only one or two chapters. Tiamat's Wrath returns to a more limited number with five. Every book also begins and ends with a prologue and epilogue told from a unique character's perspective.

Cibola Burn is a 2014 science fiction novel by James S. A. Corey (pen name of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) and the fourth book in The Expanse series. It follows the crew of the Rocinante as they join the flood of humanity out into the galaxy, using the gates built by the ancient civilization that also produced the protomolecule. At the release of Cibola Burn, Orbit Books announced that James S. A. Corey would write three additional books in the series (adding to two that were already planned) to bring the series to nine novels and various short stories.

After the events of Abaddon's Gate, humanity has gained entry to thousands of new worlds and solar systems through the gate networks. At the start of Cibola Burn the United Nations, Martian and Outer Planets Alliance governments have thus far restricted exploration and colonization efforts to one corporate scientific survey mission to one of these planets. Complicating matters is the existence of a colonial settlement already on the planet from before the military blockade of the rings came into effect. Both sides claim ownership in a confrontation reflecting many colonial interactions throughout history. Jim Holden is sent to mediate the interactions between the colonists and scientists when political and racial tensions culminate in violence.

Still dogged by the disembodied presence of Miller, who wishes to investigate the disappearance of the planet's former inhabitants, Holden arrives on a world on the verge of war. Yet the biggest danger to the colonists, scientists and Holden is not the human disagreements that they have brought with them but the frontier. As with the settling of the American West and many colonial projects of Earth's past, the frontier into which humanity has ventured is vast, uncontrolled and full of dangers. When a mysterious disease and horrific disaster strike at the same time and threaten the lives of the colonists and those in orbit, Holden and Miller must brave the ruins of an alien civilization in search of the one thing that might save them all.
Major character arcs

Basia Merton is one of the refugees from Ganymede refused safe harbor in the Solar System. His ship pushed through the gate to be the first to settle a new planet. Called Ilus by the inhabitants, they found a rich vein of lithium that could provide a valuable trading commodity with other systems. The United Nations sends a scientific party to the planet with a legal charter to the land. This drives Basia to actions he never thought he would do, and it seems like he has a never-ending set of decisions between bad choices, while he's only trying to do what he thinks is best for his family.

Elvi Okoye is a scientist on the team sent by the United Nations. Her original task was to try to survey the planet in a pristine state but events make that impossible. Later, she tries to gain insight into the incredible things happening on the planet that make it seem like the most hospitable biosphere found away from Earth may kill them all.

Dmitri Havelock was Miller's partner on Ceres and is now deputy security chief for the UN mission to New Terra. Remaining aboard the ship that brought him while the security chief relocates to the surface, he becomes increasingly concerned about the actions of his supervisor. Later, the fortunate capture of a prisoner from the Rocinante sets a chain of events into motion with long-term repercussions for humanity.

James Holden Sensing trouble brewing on Ilus/New Terra, Chrisjen Avasarala sees the need for someone perceived as unbiased to negotiate and report on events there and chooses Jim Holden. After making the journey, the crew tries their best to balance colonial claims, government priority and the awakening creatures on the planet within a crisis greater than all their earlier concerns.

Miller is still trying to figure out his role within the alien construct, while maintaining his connection with Holden. Eventual clues come together allowing him to shut down the alien machinery and potentially save everyone. However, both the remnants of Miller and the Investigator are killed in the process.

Abaddon's Gate was adapted into episodes 7 to 13 of the third season of the television series The Expanse in 2018, with its title taken for the final episode of that season. It was the last book in the series to be adapted before the show's move from Syfy to Amazon Prime. Meanwhile Amazon has signed a contract to film the complete series season 5,6 and possibly 7, btw season 5 starts this week....

 Hello, hope you enjoyed that extra hour of sleep, i needed it to make some sense of today's artist discography, aliasses, lots of different co-productions and all against a back drop of his installations' a hard working man indeed


Carsten Nicolai (18 September 1965), also known as Alva Noto, is a German musician and visual artist. He is a member of the music groups Diamond Version with Olaf Bender (Byetone), Signal with Frank Bretschneider and Olaf Bender, Cyclo with Ryoji Ikeda, ANBB with Blixa Bargeld, ALPHABET with Anne-James Chaton. Opto with Thomas Knak, and Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto with whom he composed the score for the 2015 film The Revenant.




Carsten Nicolai, born 1965 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, is a German artist and musician based in Berlin. He is part of an artist generation who works intensively in the transitional area between music, art and science. In his work he seeks to overcome the separation of the sensory perceptions of man by making scientific phenomenons like sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears. Influenced by scientific reference systems, Nicolai often engages mathematic patterns such as grids and codes, as well as error, random and self-organizing structures. His installations have a minimalistic aesthetic that by its elegance and consistency is highly intriguing. After his participation in important international exhibitions like documenta X and the 49th and 50th Venice Biennale, Nicolai’s works were shown worldwide in extensive solo and group exhibitions.

His artistic œuvre echoes in his work as a musician. For his musical outputs he uses the pseudonym Alva Noto. With a strong adherence to reductionism he leads his sound experiments into the field of electronic music creating his own code of signs, acoustics and visual symbols. Together with Olaf Bender and Frank Bretschneider he is co-founder of the label 'raster-noton. archiv für ton und nichtton'. Diverse musical projects include remarkable collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ryoji Ikeda (cyclo.), Blixa Bargeld or Mika Vainio. Nicolai toured extensively as Alva Noto through Europe, Asia, South America and the US. Among others, he performed at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou in Paris and Tate Modern in London. Most recently Nicolai scored the music for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s newest film, 'The Revenant' which has been nominated for a Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Critics Choice Award.

Alva Noto is digital sound and visual artist Carsten Nicolai, aka Noto, head of the Noton half of Germany's Raster-Noton cooperative label now known simply as Raster Music. This disc is brought to us by fellow German electronic label Mille Plateaux and is referred to by them as being of the "digital processing" style. The 10 untitled tracks are a continuous suite of minimalist compositions constructed of the familiar sounds that seem to naturally emanate from everyone and everywhere in Germany these days. For nearly 50 minutes Nicolai precisely codes structured, layered loops of clicks, pops, artifacts, "beats", waves, tones, pulses, static, silence and noise into pleasant and listenable mini(mal) symphonies. The active evolution of each piece is both on a macro and micro level and the stereo field is fully explored ... attentive headphone listening ensures the full effect. And though the sounds are similar throughout, there's plenty of variation in how they are presented within each track and from track to track, this along with sharp composition skills are the keys to maintaining my interest. Nicolai is simply one of the most talented in the field. The title literally means "an original model on which something is patterned" so I can only assume that these prototypes will spawn more in the near future

Mika Vainio and .Noto present us with a truly heavyweight clicks'n'cuts soundclash. As can be expected, conventional harmony has been obliterated, what remains are atomised fragments of noise: low-end rumbles, high-end bleeps, jagged flashes of rhythmless percussive pops and crackles and skipping glitch-outs.

Over the course of an hour's worth of computerised hums and tones, an unsettling, mechanised universe is created: the amplified surface-noise/drone concoction of "Mur" brings to mind a pollution-drenched, fogbound sea; the pitter-patter of "Beispiel Drei" naturally brings to mind Berlin's rain-sodden footpaths albeit clogged up with a thousand shuffling androids; and "Süsssonor" is the theme music for a closed circuit TV camera movie yet to be made. This is ugly sound... oppressive and claustrophic, harsh and intrusive, it'll never top the pop charts or provide the soundtrack for a love affair. There is something compelling here though, a pulse... a crackle... a rhythm... I'm not sure, something almost indefinable...

Transform is the second studio album by German electronic artist Alva Noto. It was released on September 4, 2001 via Mille Plateaux label. The album was re-released in 2008 via Raster-Noton label. The album is the first part of Alva Noto's Transall series, along with the EPs Transrapid, Transspray, and Transvision (2001–2006).

Mark Richard-San of Pitchfork wrote "Nicolai's keen sense of rhythm is the first thing you'll notice about Transform ... While Transform is a solid success on its own terms, the record lacks a certain spark that might push it into greatness. There are no moments of wonder, where you pause and listen closer, straining to understand how something so little could affect you so much. It is possible to achieve the sublime with these limited ingredients (see Ikeda, for one), but Transform is cleaner than a whistle, clearer than a bell, and purer than a fresh snowfall on a Canadian Rockies mountaintop. Yet its beats are heavier than a howitzer’s. Go figure.

Classic material from the Raster Noton vaults, this first full-length collaboration between Carsten Nicolai and Thomas Knak finds both artists at the very height of their powers. There's a level of focus on this album that allows the whole experiment to gel together far more convincingly than on the follow-up album released only a year or two back. Bringing to mind Transform-era Alva Noto and Possible-era Opiate these tracks seamlessly integrate subtle, elemental electronic melodies into the kind of sterilised rhythmic frameworks Nicolai made his name with. That said, Knak isn't just here to provide a tuneful foil to the Alva Noto clicks+cuts machine - he can glitch it up with the best, serving up dub chamber echo sparks to add a more analogue, physical slant on the prickly micro beats. It's really wonderful to hear this again, and it surely stands as a considerable achievement that even six years on from its release this music still sounds like a cutting edge piece of electronica. 'Opto File 1' is just magical: the warm crackle of those beats and the gradual hum of undulating chords sounds like an orchestra of fluorescent tubes switching themselves on and off with some freakishly musical outcome. Awesome.

Between January and April 2003 Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Thomas Knak (Opiate) produced their “2nd” Opto collaboration. The work was initially commissioned in Japan for a clothing line inspired by the forest theme. As part of a commissioned work, the music had to sound organic and reproduce a more melodic feeling compared to the first Opto release (Opto Files, Raster-Noton, in 2001). During the same time, Nicolai found an old and damaged cassette in a forest located in the North East part of Berlin. The tape contained nearly inaudible lo-fi recordings of guitar pieces. The forest ambience and the old guitar recordings became the template for “2nd”. When collaborating on their first Opto album, the two artists exchanged audio files back and forth from their respective studios in Berlin and Copenhagen. This process became part of the concept for “2nd”. After received assistance to restore the recordings from the magnetic audiotape, Nicolai exchanged the guitar’s sound files with Thomas who started working on the beat structure and added field-recordings of a forest near his studio. The recording process of the tracks was made at different hours across two days – a process which inspired the track titles. The album can be listened in one take as an extended track lasting 48 hours and 40 min, or by selecting the melodic and “daylight” beats from the moodier and static night productions. In “2nd”, DSP and glitch meet the traditional way of sampling concrete sounds.

Atlantic Starr was among the top urban contemporary acts of the '80s and fared well in the adult contemporary market as well, but their roots were '70s soul and funk. Several members first recorded together as Newban, a funk group that released two 1977 albums, Newban and Newban 2, on the Guinness label. Atlantic Starr took shape that same year, formed in White Plains, New York by three brothers: lead singer/guitarist David Lewis, lead singer/keyboardist Wayne Lewis, and trombonist/percussionist Jonathan Lewis. The lineup was filled out by singer Sharon Bryant, trumpeter William Sudderth, saxophonist Damon Rentie (who was replaced by Koran Daniels in 1981), bassist Clifford Archer, drummer Porter Carroll, Jr., and percussionist/flutist Joseph Phillips. Influenced by the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, Commodores, New Birth, and L.T.D., Atlantic Starr started playing around the northeastern U.S. Atlantic Starr began in Greenburgh, New York with trumpeter Duke Jones (who left the band prior to their first recordings), drummer Porter Carroll Jr., bassist Clifford Archer, percussionist and flautist Joseph Phillips, Sheldon Tucker (Guitar; parted ways with the band before the first recordings), and three brothers: David Lewis (vocals/guitar), Wayne Lewis (keyboards and vocals), and Jonathan Lewis (percussion and trombone). The band's membership eventually stabilized around Carroll, Archer, Phillips, the three Lewis brothers, lead singer Sharon Bryant (who was later replaced by Barbara Weathers), trumpeter William Sudderth III, and saxophonist Damon Rentie (who was later replaced by Koran Daniels). In 1977, the band came to Westwood, California and performed on the nightclub scene under the name "Newban," which they agreed to change at the request of A&M Records executive Herb Alpert when they were signed. Having already agreed to keep the Starr part of an early idea for a new band name, the members decided to add the word Atlantic, because of their East Coast roots. The nine-member band were now A&M employees.

Throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, Atlantic Starr scored several hits on the R&B charts. However, significant crossover success (onto the pop charts) did not come until halfway into the 1980s, with the release of their album As the Band Turns (their last on A&M Records), and the single "Secret Lovers". By this time, the band had pared itself down to a quintet, consisting of the three Lewis brothers, Phillips, and Weathers. In 1987 (after signing to Warner Bros. Records), the band solidified their pop success by scoring a #1 pop (and R&B) hit with "Always", a love ballad off their album All in the Name of Love. Following this success, Weathers left for a solo career, and she was replaced by Porscha Martin for the band's next album, 1988's We're Movin' Up. Although this album was not quite as successful as its predecessors, it did produce another #1 R&B hit with "My First Love."

The band continued to score hits on both the R&B and Pop charts into the early 1990s. 1991 saw the introduction of yet another new female lead singer, when Martin was replaced by Miss Black America 1986 Rachel Oliver, for the album, Love Crazy.[2] This album featured the band's biggest hit of the 1990s, with "Masterpiece" reaching #3 on both the pop and R&B charts in early 1992. The group toured to Japan in 1992 with yet another female vocalist at the helm, Crystal Blake, a studio vocalist for Stevie Wonder who had also sung the female lead parts on the minor hit title track for Eddie Murphy's How Could It Be album and Young MC's "Bust a Move."

Following the release of Love Crazy, Atlantic Starr's relationship with Warner Bros. Records dissolved, and in 1994, the band recorded one album for Arista: Time. That album was a commercial disappointment and the single "I'll Remember You" only made it to the fifties on Billboard's R&B and pop singles charts. Time (which was David Lewis' last album with the band) found a fifth female singer, Aisha Tanner, replacing Oliver. And when 1999's Legacy was distributed by the small, independent Street Solid label, Atlantic Starr unveiled yet another lineup—one that consisted of two Lewis Brothers (Wayne and Jonathan) as well as Oliver (who had returned and replaced Tanner) and a new male singer named DeWayne Woods. Although Legacy received little attention, Atlantic Starr still continues to perform today and released their 14th album, Metamorphosis in 2017, featuring L'john Epps and Melessa Pierce.

Newban/Atlantic Starr's original Personal Manager was Earl Cole of Cole Classic Management. Earl Cole moved with the group from White Plains, New York. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, California, the group was introduced to their Business Manager, Earl Harris of Harris Management in 1977 by Mr. Harris' nephew, Al Scaife of Enter-Prizin' Management. Earl Harris eventually acquired the role of Personal and Business management for the group and remains their manager to this day.

Original members
After leaving Atlantic Starr, original drummer and founding bandmember Porter Carroll, Jr. released a self-titled solo album (Porter Carroll II) in 1986. This album featured contributions from several prominent musicians, including Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, and former Starr bandmate Sharon Bryant. He has continued to do session work since that time, and is currently playing percussion in Daryl Hall's live band.Following her exit from Atlantic Starr, singer Bryant embarked on a solo career and released an album in 1989, scoring several big hits on the R&B charts, as well as a minor Pop hit from the project. Original saxophonist Damon Rentie went on to a solo career of his own, releasing his first solo album, Designated Hitter in 1985. His second and third solo albums followed in each successive year (1986 and 1987, respectively). He had also previously done session work with DeBarge. Original trumpeter William Sudderth continues to follow an active schedule in the music business, performing in many diverse settings and having become one of the most sought-after horn players in the industry.Bassist Clifford Archer currently resides in Tokyo, Japan where he performs regularly as a musician and session player. Original member Albert "Duke" Jones remains involved in the music industry. Joseph Phillips, original percussionist and flautist is currently working with the Reverend Bryan Oakley, producing gospel music.

 Atlantic Starr was still trying to get its sound together when this, its first album to the hit the charts, was released. The nine-piece band had an impressive showing on the Billboard R&B charts with "Stand Up" and "Keep It Comin'." The former, led by Wayne Lewis, is a hand-clapping affair with a humpin' funk groove. The latter, led by Sharon Bryant and David Lewis, is a decent effort. Respectively, they both peaked at 16 and 49 on the charts. "(I'll Never Miss) The Love I Never Had" is a notable number. David Lewis comes across with a more convincing delivery than on the other selections he is featured on. The most engaging number is "With Your Love I Come Alive," which showcases Porter Carroll Jr. on lead. His tenor is brawny yet agile and his delivery comes with an unrehearsed feel. Wayne Lewis' vocals were still in a developmental stage, and he had not yet grasped that imposing tone he would later master.

These days, most A&R people at major labels (as opposed to indies) no longer believe in honest-to-God artist development -- if an artist's first album isn't a hit, he/she gets dropped. But back in the '70s, major label A&R people were, as a rule, a lot more patient. They were more likely to view the artist as a long-term investment, which is why three- or four-album contracts weren't uncommon -- labels reasoned that if an artist's first or second album wasn't a hit, the third or fourth just might be. Atlantic Starr is a perfect example of a band that benefited from insightful, smart A&R. In the late '70s, Atlantic Starr was a diamond in the rough that needed to be developed -- thankfully, A&M's A&R department was wise enough (and patient enough) to develop the East Coast outfit. One hears a lot of potential on Atlantic Starr's second album Straight to the Point, which Bobby Eli produced at Philadelphia's legendary Sigma Sound Studios. From the funky single "(Let's) Rock 'N' Roll" to the slick "Let the Sprit Move Ya" (which has a Euro-disco flavor) and the soul ballad "Losin' You," this 1979 release is a generally decent (if slightly uneven) sophomore effort. But it isn't fantastic or mind-blowing, and not until 1981's Radiance did Atlantic Starr really start to live up to its creative and commercial potential. In 1979, Atlantic Starr was like a student who was getting Bs and Cs on his/her report card but had the potential to bring home a lot of As -- the potential for excellence was there, and thank God A&M helped the band make the transition from decent to excellent. Although not among Atlantic Starr's essential releases, Straight to the Point is an LP that hardcore fans will find interesting.

Atlantic Starr on Radiant was amazingly consistent.
They were a certain rare bird who could do disco, funk, pop and ballads equally well. Even if just the uptempo songs were good, this would be a worthwhile album for "When Love Calls" and "Mystery Girl" alone. The album opener, "When Love Calls" hits all the right spots with rhythm section and straightforward keys the perfect counter to Sharon Bryant's solid singing. A true masterpiece of soul disco. "Mystery Girl" meanwhile is one of those chance meeting type songs and another sure fire winner.

"Think About That" shows funk is still a part of the game, and most importantly for the ballads, the songwriting brought in some of the best teaming up with Sam Dee for the Quiet Storm dedication numbers "Send For Me" and "Am I Dreaming". ....Not to be missed.

Atlantic Starr returned with James Carmichael producing, bringing more good stuff on Brilliance which reached number one on the R&B album chart. Lead single "Circles" with its smooth disco soul is more excellence both from the tight rhythm section and the stirring vocal from Sharon Bryant.

Meanwhile other dance numbers are firmly in 1982 with the funk slap was more pronounced as heard on the falsetto vocalized, "Love Moves" and the exciting "Sexy Dancer". Sam Dees and Harold Johnson are also back contributing the songwriting on another winning slow jams "Your Love Finally Ran Out" and "Let's Get Closer".
Again forget about the crossover "Always" this was the peak for Atlantic Starr.

Before Einstein created his unique theorems on relativity, deflating Newton’s theories on gravity, Nikola Tesla posited the idea that electricity and energy were responsible for almost all cosmic phenomena. Tesla saw energy and electricity as an “incompressible fluid” of constant quantity that could neither be destroyed nor created.

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.

The so-called “god particle” is most likely an illusion.

The idea of a Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was originally proposed early in the 1980s. Since the Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP) was at the end of its life, and a machine capable of generating more power was needed, a 20 nation consortium, all members of CERN (Conseil Europeen pour la Recherche Nucleaire), started design work in 1994.

The LHC straddles the border between Switzerland and France, occupying a 27 kilometer long, circular tunnel. Its electromagnets force protons into a narrow beam, split it in two, and then send the two streams of charged particles around the ring in opposite directions, causing the twin beams to collide head on.

Although the LHC was built to carry out a number of experiments, most particle physicists will admit that the $10 billion was spent to find the Higgs boson.

Physicists postulate that matter is built from twelve fundamental particles, six quarks and six leptons. Note that protons and neutrons are not considered “fundamental,” since they are made of quarks. Quarks are defined as elementary particles with electric charges one-third or two-thirds that of the electron. Leptons are a group of elementary particles (and antiparticles), such as electrons, muons, or neutrinos that are affected by electromagnetic and weak interactions.

According to the standard theory of quantum mechanics, quarks are “colored” and “flavored,” but a detailed explanation of those fields of influence is not germane to this account. The quark flavors are up, down, bottom, top, strange, and charm. Each of the six quark flavors can have three different colors, red, green, or blue. The lepton table includes the electron, electron-neutrino, muon, muon-neutrino, tau, and tau-neutrino. The muon and the tau leptons are not stable, however, and quickly decay.

While leptons are thought to participate in weak atomic interactions, other particles such as mesons, baryons, and hadrons are more massive and are affected by strong force influences. Quantum mechanics proposes that there are four forces at work in nature: the strong force, which holds atomic nuclei together; the electromagnetic force, which holds atoms and molecules together; the weak force, which governs radioactive decay; and the gravitational force, which attracts matter to itself in an inverse square relationship over infinite distance.

According to nuclear physicists, a “force” is more like an exchange. When the strong force binds an atomic nucleus together, for example, the particles exchange “carrier particles,” called bosons. Each force requires its own boson. It is the photon that supposedly carries the electromagnetic force, and “gluons” carry the strong force. An ongoing problem for physicists is the detection of “gravitons” that supposedly carry the gravitational force.

In 1964, Peter Higgs speculated that space is permeated by a “field,” similar to an electromagnetic field. When particles travel through space, they encounter this field, acquiring “mass.” The concept can be illustrated by particles moving through a viscous fluid: the greater interaction of particles with the field, the greater their mass. The existence of the Higgs field is an essential component of his hypothesis.

As previously mentioned, quantum theory requires that fields be associated with carrier particles, so the expectation is that there must be a particle carrying the Higgs field: the Higgs boson. For the last few years, LHC’s focus has been to “find” the Higgs boson and determine if this mass origin hypothesis is correct.

Recently, physicists announced that LHC had shown hints that the Higgs-Boson was “real.” However, experiments in the 145 billion to 466 billion electron volt range have excluded the boson’s existence. As Dmitri Denisov of Fermilab said: “We do not see the signal. If it existed, we would see it. But when we look at our data, we basically see nothing.”

Electric Universe advocates propose that the entire quantum mechanical universe requires a new viewpoint. Since it is the electric force that governs the cosmos, the behavior, origin, and structure of matter needs to be revised. One of the most interesting aspects of this premise is the clues that exist within quantum mechanics, itself.

Plasma’s electrical and physical properties are scalable over many orders of magnitude. Laboratory experiments can model what is observed in space. Gravity’s force falls off with the square of the distance, while the attraction between electrified plasma filaments is linear and up to 39 orders of magnitude greater than gravity. Looking at the four hypothetical quantum forces, it can be seen that the strong force is also 39 orders of magnitude greater than gravity. Perhaps that relationship is better explained with the electric force.

Virtual models operating within computer algorithms have replaced direct observation in recent years: the natural philosophy of science has been abandoned. Computer models are used to build other models, which, in turn, are used to “confirm” further models. Physics used to mean investigating the nature and properties of matter and energy. Instead, it has become the handmaiden to mathematics.

SAFIRE is an experiment to explore possible electrical attributes of the Sun. Though there are thousands of papers published every year about our Sun, making a direct connection between satellite data and a small chamber in a laboratory is extremely difficult. Michael will help us understand why a profusion of data may not automatically lead to a right understanding. He will also present some of the first experiments SAFIRE will use to bridge the gap to NASA/ESA data.

Michael received his PhD in physics from Brandeis University, studying the biological and statistical behavior of proteins. He spent several years studying binary pulsars at the Arecibo radio telescope. He has lectured on discoveries in the areas of fractional calculus, fractals, and chaotic systems. His lectures have shown many news ways to understand relativity and dimensions, metaphysics in biology, and transformation in supernova. Dr. Clarage is currently a lead scientist with the SAFIRE Project.

The Expanse is a series of science fiction novels (and related novellas and short stories) by James S. A. Corey, the joint pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The first novel, Leviathan Wakes, was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2012. The series as a whole was nominated for the Best Series Hugo Award in 2017.

As of 2019, The Expanse is made up of eight novels and eight shorter works - three short stories and five novellas. At least nine novels were planned, as well as two more novellas. The series was adapted for television by the Syfy Network, also under the title of The Expanse, then they dropped the ball despite the succes of the series, i suspect the whole thing got too serious (expensive) so once again Syfy network proved they can't handle success. Anyway fans were outraged and got Amazon Prime to pick it up for a fourth and fifth series and considering the mountain of money Jeff Bezos sits on i suspect several more as long as the fans keep cheering.

The Expanse is set in a future in which humanity has colonized much of the Solar System, but does not have interstellar travel. In the asteroid belt and beyond, tensions are rising between Earth's United Nations, Mars, and the outer planets.

The series initially takes place in the Solar System, using many real locations such as Ceres and Eros in the asteroid belt, several moons of Jupiter, with Ganymede and Europa the most developed, and small science bases as far out as Phoebe around Saturn and Titania around Uranus, as well as well-established domed settlements on Mars and the Moon.

As the series progresses, humanity gains access to thousands of new worlds by use of the ring, an artificially sustained Einstein-Rosen bridge or wormhole, created by a long dead alien race. The ring in our solar system is two AU from the orbit of Uranus, and passing through it leads to a hub of starless space approximately one million kilometers across, with more than 1,300 other rings, each with a star system on the other side. In the center of the hub, which is also referred to as the "slow zone", an alien space station controls the gates and can also set instantaneous speed limits on objects inside of the hub as a means of defense.


The story is told through multiple main point-of-view characters. There are two POV characters in the first book and four in books 2 through 5. In the sixth and seventh books, the number of POV characters increases, with several characters having only one or two chapters. Tiamat's Wrath returns to a more limited number with five. Every book also begins and ends with a prologue and epilogue told from a unique character's perspective.

Cibola Burn is a 2014 science fiction novel by James S. A. Corey (pen name of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) and the fourth book in The Expanse series. It follows the crew of the Rocinante as they join the flood of humanity out into the galaxy, using the gates built by the ancient civilization that also produced the protomolecule. At the release of Cibola Burn, Orbit Books announced that James S. A. Corey would write three additional books in the series (adding to two that were already planned) to bring the series to nine novels and various short stories.

After the events of Abaddon's Gate, humanity has gained entry to thousands of new worlds and solar systems through the gate networks. At the start of Cibola Burn the United Nations, Martian and Outer Planets Alliance governments have thus far restricted exploration and colonization efforts to one corporate scientific survey mission to one of these planets. Complicating matters is the existence of a colonial settlement already on the planet from before the military blockade of the rings came into effect. Both sides claim ownership in a confrontation reflecting many colonial interactions throughout history. Jim Holden is sent to mediate the interactions between the colonists and scientists when political and racial tensions culminate in violence.

Still dogged by the disembodied presence of Miller, who wishes to investigate the disappearance of the planet's former inhabitants, Holden arrives on a world on the verge of war. Yet the biggest danger to the colonists, scientists and Holden is not the human disagreements that they have brought with them but the frontier. As with the settling of the American West and many colonial projects of Earth's past, the frontier into which humanity has ventured is vast, uncontrolled and full of dangers. When a mysterious disease and horrific disaster strike at the same time and threaten the lives of the colonists and those in orbit, Holden and Miller must brave the ruins of an alien civilization in search of the one thing that might save them all.
Major character arcs

Basia Merton is one of the refugees from Ganymede refused safe harbor in the Solar System. His ship pushed through the gate to be the first to settle a new planet. Called Ilus by the inhabitants, they found a rich vein of lithium that could provide a valuable trading commodity with other systems. The United Nations sends a scientific party to the planet with a legal charter to the land. This drives Basia to actions he never thought he would do, and it seems like he has a never-ending set of decisions between bad choices, while he's only trying to do what he thinks is best for his family.

Elvi Okoye is a scientist on the team sent by the United Nations. Her original task was to try to survey the planet in a pristine state but events make that impossible. Later, she tries to gain insight into the incredible things happening on the planet that make it seem like the most hospitable biosphere found away from Earth may kill them all.

Dmitri Havelock was Miller's partner on Ceres and is now deputy security chief for the UN mission to New Terra. Remaining aboard the ship that brought him while the security chief relocates to the surface, he becomes increasingly concerned about the actions of his supervisor. Later, the fortunate capture of a prisoner from the Rocinante sets a chain of events into motion with long-term repercussions for humanity.

James Holden Sensing trouble brewing on Ilus/New Terra, Chrisjen Avasarala sees the need for someone perceived as unbiased to negotiate and report on events there and chooses Jim Holden. After making the journey, the crew tries their best to balance colonial claims, government priority and the awakening creatures on the planet within a crisis greater than all their earlier concerns.

Miller is still trying to figure out his role within the alien construct, while maintaining his connection with Holden. Eventual clues come together allowing him to shut down the alien machinery and potentially save everyone. However, both the remnants of Miller and the Investigator are killed in the process.

Abaddon's Gate was adapted into episodes 7 to 13 of the third season of the television series The Expanse in 2018, with its title taken for the final episode of that season. It was the last book in the series to be adapted before the show's move from Syfy to Amazon Prime. Meanwhile Amazon has signed a contract to film the complete series season 5,6 and possibly 7, btw season 5 starts this week....

Hello,  bit late today and then i picked an artist who trusts facebook to drop the biography, well i said no to them in 2007 so no biography here

Today's Artist is the electronic/ambient music project of Liam Blackburn, from Manchester, UK. ...... N'Joy

xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx

The birth of Ancestral Voices represents a new path for an established and highly respected producer. Liam Blackburn carved out a singular musical voice as Indigo, and also more recently as half of acclaimed duo Akkord. Inevitably a new approach to creating music has developed into a new identity: seeping with textures, loaded with a taut energy that whispers tales of shamanism and transformative life experiences. Stripping back an already unique creative process proved a challenge that has paid off, and Blackburn's evolving sound has no immediate sonic comparison. With distinct resonances of his musical heritage flowing through a more mature filter, there is a mystical atmosphere that resounds through the LP as you hear Ancestral Voices emerge triumphantly into the world. The Ancestral Voices debut LP is an insight into a subconscious journey; fully formed as one accomplished 'Night Of Visions'.

*2 x 180g LP's housed in printed inners, debossed jacket and Houndstooth-printed PVC sleeve** Aerobic mystics, Joe McBride (Synkro), and Liam Blackburn (Indigo) aka Akkord, present a slickly engrossing debut album for Fabric's sister label Houndstooth. It's the definitive manifest of their convergent interests in sacred geometry, mathematics, minimalism and bassbins, deftly balancing dancefloor appeal with the sort of detailed production appreciated by headphone and home listeners.

Over its ten tarcks the genes of jungle, dubstep, techno and ambient electronics are spun out and re-encoded with razor-sharp grasp of spatial dynamics and rhythmic aptitude, presenting a perspective on 2013 warehouse sounds which conversely takes as much inspiration from the organic and pastoral as synthetic, man-made structures.

DJs and dancers will discover deadly wares in the ductile dubstep-techno flux of '3dOS', in the determined, brutalist slam of 'Conveyor', and the clipped 2-step contours of 'Navigate', but the album's most unique offerings are subtler counterpoints such as the icy halfsteppers' sound design of 'Rocendal', co-constructed with Biome, or the Demdike-esque para-dimensional dread of 'Torr Vale', and the crushing/crushed, Emptyset-like texturing of closer 'Undertow'.

Liam Blackburn ov Akkord inhabits new, arcane ambient dimensions with his debut full length offering under the Ancestral Voices alter ego, finding sympathetic company amongst Samurai Horo’s searching roster.


 Liam Blackburn, the man behind the Ancestral Voices moniker, has often seemed like a pretty gifted producer searching for a genre that would best suit his undoubted talent. He's given techno, ambient and IDM a whirl but kept returning to drum & bass in one form another, culminating in last year's "Night of Visions", a generally well received album and one of the last on Samurai Horo before the parent imprint decided to merge its offshoots. It was a lengthy affair that swung from washes of doom-laden ambience to full bore 170bpm meltdowns with effortless dexterity. Inspired by shamanic experiences in the Amazon and an expanding, spiritual weltanschauung, Night of Visions represents an enlightened new path trailing beyond the fringes of post-dubstep, techno, and electro-acoustic music to explore instinctive urges and impressionistic projections thru a more mature production palette.His latest EP "Old Earth Voodoo", is, in the opinion of this aging d&b fanatic, a far more satisfying affair. The track tempos have been slowed down dramatically to a soporific-sounding 85bpm, but take it from me, the tunes themselves are teeming with the sort of dubbed up incandescence that would have a dance floor heaving were an enterprising DJ to drop one into his set. If "Old Earth Voodoo" is an indication of where Ancestral Voices are headed next, goodies aplenty lie in store. And for god's sake someone introduce Liam Blackburn to Kevin Martin: an Ancestral Voices / The Bug collaboration would have the potential to ... well, just use your imagination

‘Divination’ is the second LP to come from Liam Blackburn’s Ancestral Voices project. Where his debut LP ‘Night of Visions’, reconstructed his rhythmic approach into a primal framework, ‘Divination’ sheds the beats almost entirely and focuses on soaring drones and Liam’s refined approach to ambience. There is moments of tempered elation (Revelation, Inscriptions, Cleromancy), contrasted with black hole soundtracks (Geomancy, Hieratic) with the overall feel of ‘Divination’ becoming a gently traversing voyage through a revolving mood-scape. With ‘Divination’ following more beat oriented EP’s for Samurai Music and Horo, Liam redefines the sound of Ancestral Voices with every release. ’Divination’ is a glistening example of the singular voice he provides to electronic music.

Liam Blackburn’s Ancestral Voices project is a nomadic journey of self discovery, exploring expansion of consciousness through sound. Since it’s inception in 2016 the project has traversed from transcendent ambient to jagged 170 bpm beat experiments over the course of 2 full length LP’s and 3 EP’s. In 2018 Liam launched his own label ‘The Fifth Kingdom’ with the entirely beatless release -

Liam Blackburn’s Ancestral Voices project has been consistently hard to pin down to any genre as he progresses through his new musical experiment. Taking hunks of his formative style developed as Indigo and stretching it into uncharted forms, most of his new work is underpinned by a skill at sound design that has endeared him to the sync community and recently saw his music soundtracking a trailer for Paramount Pictures 2018 thriller ‘A Quiet Place’ -
To launch his own label ‘The Fifth Kingdom’, Liam has stripped away the rhythms and percussion entirely for a full 6 track ambient release that soars and glides on a bed of cloud like haze.

A soundtrack for flotation, Mycelia opens an exciting new outlet for conscious music from one of electronica’s more daring creators.

B.T. Express (originally named Brooklyn Transit Express) was an American funk/disco group, that had a number of successful songs during the 1970s.
Contents

According to a Record World article in March, 1975, the King Davis House Rockers begat The Madison Street Express which begat Brothers Trucking which begat B.T. Express. At the time the group consisted of Rich Thompson on lead guitar and Bill Risbrook on tenor saxophone who were the nucleus of King House Rockers. Also in the group were Louis Risbrook on bass who was the brother of Bill on solo flute, alto sax, piccolo and clarinet. There was also Olando T. Woods on drums and singer Barbara Joyce Lomas. The latest member was Dennis Rowe on congas. Carlos Wards who was born in Panama had played with The John Coltrane Octet, Don Cherry, Pharoah Sanders, and McCoy Tyner.[2] Barbara Joyce Lomas who came from Alabama had been with the Uptights and sang on their single, "Free At Last" b/w "You Git’s None Of This", released on Skye Records
Beginnings

The group was part of the "Brooklyn sound" of the early 1970s, formed from three players of the group King Davis House Rockers. The House Rockers were a local dance band who had released a couple of obscure singles (1967's "We All Make Mistakes Sometimes" on Verve Records, 1972's "Rum Punch")

The single, "Baby You Satisfy Me" b/w "We All Make Mistakes Sometimes" was credited to King Davis House Rockers featuring Richard Thomas, and was released on Verve VK 10492 in February 1967. In 1969, the King Davis produced "What Do I Have To Do" b/w "We All Make Mistakes Sometimes", credited to Rick Thompson was released on Columbia 4-44880. There was also a single by The Visitors, "Holiday in Love" b/w "Rum Punch" which was released on Airways LK-2000. It was composed by L. Risbrook, C. Ward and C. Stephenson. It was co-produced by Stephenson and King Davis.[ It was also released on Straker's Records S-0046 with "Rum Punch" as the A side.[


The three players (guitarist Richard Thompson, tenor sax player Bill Risbrook, and alto sax player Carlos Ward) formed Madison Street Express along with bassist Louis Risbrook (later Muslim-monickered Jamal Rasool), percussionist Dennis Rowe, drummer Terrell Wood, and vocalist Barbara Wood.
Career

The members of Madison Street Express along with producer Jeff Lane signed with production company Roadshow Records to record writer Billy Nichols "Do It ('Til You're Satisfied)". The record was shopped around to major labels until it was accepted at Scepter Records. Scepter suggested the group change its name from Madison Street Express, hence the Brooklyn Transit Express. The single was released in August 1974, and reached the top 10. Lane took the group back into the studios at that point to record a second single and pitch a full album to the label. Scepter agreed to the LP and to Roadshow Records having its own label within Scepter Records.

The first two singles were hits, both number 1 R&B releases and both Top 5 pop singles in the US. The album hit number 1 on the R&B album chart and number 5 on the Pop album chart of the US. These recordings were also hits in the spreading disco culture, "Do It" peaking on club playlists before Billboard started a separate disco chart, but the follow-up single sat for five weeks at number 1. They were certified gold releases.

BT Express released an album per year through 1978. With the third album, Leslie Ming was brought in as drummer and Michael Jones was added as keyboardist. Jamal, who had converted to Islam, gave Jones the name Kashif Saleem, which he used after departing the group, in 1979, to pursue producing ("Mighty M Productions" with Morrie Brown and Paul Laurence Jones) and solo recording ventures. That year songwriter Billy Nichols and drummer Leslie Ming also departed the group. In 1976 Scepter records was experiencing business difficulties that soon ended the company, and BT Express was given a distribution deal with Columbia Records, which, though it gave them greater exposure, resulted in less attention being paid to their production, since they had so many acts to concentrate on. The group did not achieve the level of radio or sales success on Columbia that they had on the more nurturing but by-then defunct Scepter. They stayed with Columbia for five years, with Lane producing through 1978, then Nichols producing their fifth album before he departed for solo work, and Morrie Brown producing the sixth LP and several follow-up tracks. The group switched labels to Coast To Coast Records for the 1982 LP, to Earthtone Records for a later 1982 single, and to manager King Davis' own label in 1985.

Michael Jones, later known as Kashif died at his home in the Playa del Rey neighborhood of Los Angeles, on September 25, 2016, at age 59.

Do It ('Til You're Satisfied) features two million sellers by the New York natives; the title track and "Express" are funky, irresistible disco gems. Produced by Jeff Lane and mixed by Tom Moulton, the two dancefloor classics features hypnotic basslines, handclaps on alternate beats, and the coolest congas on the planet, all combined with masterfully mixed guitars, saxophones, flutes, strings, Barbara Joyce Lomas' blaring lead, Louis Risbrooks' bass vocal retorts, and Richard Thompson's support vocals. Lane was never able to repeat the tightness of the two tracks on subsequent albums or even on this one. "If I Don't Turn You On" and "Do You Like It" come close, but "Once You Get It," "Do It," "This House Is Smoking," and "Mental Telepathy" do not. Good, because of the two classics, but a greatest-hits collection would be even better.

When one thinks of the cultural contributions that Brooklyn's African-American neighborhoods made in the 1980s and 1990s, the people who immediately come to mind range from director Spike Lee to major rappers (the Fat Boys, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte, Biz Markie, among many others) to soul/urban contemporary singer James "D-Train" Williams. But back in the 1970s, Brooklyn was known for its disco-minded brand of funk. Brooklyn funk wasn't the kind of hardcore funk that you expected from James Brown, George Clinton's P-funk empire (Parliament/Funkadelic, Bootsy Collins, the Brides of Funkenstein, etc.), the Gap Band, Rick James, or the Ohio Players -- it was funk-disco, and Brooklyn outfits like B.T. Express, the Crown Heights Affair, and Skyy were huge in the clubs (especially black clubs). When B.T. Express' second album, Non-Stop, came out in 1975, Scepter assumed that it would fare well in dance clubs -- and sure enough, club DJs went wild over this record. However, Non-Stop contained some major radio hits as well, including "Peace Pipe" and "Give It What You Got" (both of which reached number five on Billboard's R&B singles chart). Meanwhile, "Still Good, Still Like It" and "Discotizer" are among that tracks that weren't big radio hits but grabbed the attention of club jocks. The LP's only ballad is a cover of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David favorite "Close to You"; although B.T. Express' version is pleasant enough, the fact remains that romantic ballads were never its strong point. Up-tempo material is what defines Non-Stop and makes it one of the band's finest, most essential albums.

B.T. Express' third album, Energy to Burn, marked two firsts for the Brooklyn residents: It was their first album for Columbia, and it marked the arrival of keyboardist Michael Jones, aka Kashif. Not that Kashif's arrival was a major event for R&B fans of 1976, the year in which this album came out. It wasn't until 1981, when Kashif wrote "I'm in Love" for Evelyn "Champagne" King, that he became famous as a producer/songwriter -- and his first solo album didn't come out until 1983. Besides, Energy to Burn (which was lead singer Barbara Joyce's last album with B.T. Express) doesn't sound anything like the smooth, sophisticated urban contemporary that Kashif wrote or produced for King, George Benson, Howard Johnson, Melba Moore, and others in the early 1980s; this LP is state-of-the-art B.T. Express. Although the band's work was uneven in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Energy to Burn is generally excellent. Those who had grooved to B.T. Express' two previous albums weren't disappointed by hypnotic funk-disco smokers like "Can't Stop Groovin' Now," "Wanna Do It Some More" (which reached number six on Billboard's R&B singles charts), "Depend on Yourself," and the title song (which was only a number 37 R&B hit but was a favorite in clubs). One of the album's most unorthodox tracks is "Herbs," an instrumental that successfully fuses B.T. Express' trademark funk-disco sound with the sort of sweet reggae that prevailed in Jamaica during the rocksteady era. And not surprisingly, the album's least inspired track is a cover of Gamble and Huff's "Now That We've Found Love" -- romantic ballads and slow jams were never B.T. Express' strong point. But other than that, Energy to Burn is one of the band's strongest albums.

When lead vocalist Barbara Joyce left B.T. Express after its third album, Energy to Burn, the Brooklyn combo didn't search for another female singer -- instead, it decided to carry on as an all-male outfit. Joyce was an appealing, talented singer, but losing her was hardly a fatal blow for B.T. Express. Unlike the Commodores, L.T.D., or Earth, Wind & Fire, B.T. Express never went out of its way to push a superstar vocalist -- its 1970s albums were about the overall sound of the band, not any particular singer. Function at the Junction was B.T. Express' first post-Joyce LP, but it isn't much different from the New Yorkers' three previous albums. With Jeff Lane (the guy who produced Brass Construction in the 1970s) producing, B.T. Express continue to mine the same funk-disco waters on club-friendly tracks like "Expose Yourself," "We Got It Together," and "Funky Music." Overall, this is a decent record, although it is mildly uneven and falls short of the excellence of B.T. Express' previous releases. And that isn't because of Joyce's departure; Columbia was bringing in more and more outside songwriters, which made its post-1976 albums inconsistent and less focused. Columbia assumed that those outside songwriters would be an asset, but they turned out to be something of a distraction. Nonetheless, Function at the Junction has more pluses than minuses, and is worth hearing if you're among B.T. Express' hardcore fans.
