Ayoblud

Adrian Youngblood, known amongst peers of lyricism as Ayoblud, is a conscious hip hop artist proudly planted with his South Florida roots. With the ambition and determination to stay true to the foundation upon what hip hop was based, Ayoblud continuously provides his listeners with the hunger and passion of real life experiences through potent lyricism. In fear of missing a rhyme of importance, Ayoblud gives you the urge to rewind each track in attempts to catch every phrase and punch line. With a humble, yet confident attitude, Adrian Ayoblud YP Youngblood breeched his way into a world of struggle and love.

 

Growing up in various regions of South Florida, church was always a factor in his life. This is where he fell in love with drums, piano, melodies and the word choice of music. Watching his mother in the Choir he always hoped for the voice of an angel but as he grew older, something came over him. Ayoblud made a realization that would change not only his mindset but his life as a whole. He found a distinct satisfaction in the wordplay of rappers and poets. So in 2001 he started writing poetry for personal purposes and by the middle of 2005 he traded in the rhyme schemes and limericks in for bars verses and hooks.

 

Joining his first rap group, Local Circle, his sophomore year of high school he began to find himself being challenged lyrically. Ayoblud was featured on two of the mixtapes distributed under the Local Circle camp. Noticing his progression and crowd reaction, he realized this was something he was destined to do for as long as God willing. During his senior year, rapping became less of a priority and graduating took the place of his pen in paper. He went back to writing poetry to keep his mind stimulated but didn’t release any songs until the summer of 2007. After moving to Tallahassee for college, his rapping career seized to exist. This extinction lasted until someone asked him for a verse in the winter of 2008; it was as if the feeling never left.

Elaborate on your music career.

 

Enrique “Rick “ Santana

 

My name is Enrique Santana but everyone calls me Rick.  I was born in Chicago in 1964.  Moved to Puerto Rico in 1970 and lived there for 7 years when I returned back to Chicago in 1977.  I attended Roberto Clemente HS where I came to be part of our Folkloric Dance group and also became a member of our HS band which is when I started to write songs.

 

I am a singer songwriter since I was a teenager.  I have always had a dream of recording my songs and have participated in contests such as the Hispanic Star Search in Chicago.  I have also been featured as a talent in a music show in the 90s based in Chicago called Salsa, Dip and Chip, performing one of my original songs titled “Spanish Eyes”.   I moved to Tampa Florida in 2007 and have been here since.  I am part of the worship team at my church “Victory Worship Center” in Plant City, Florida.

 

I am also a Registered Nurse and work at Moffitt Cancer Center where I have been a hematology oncology nurse for 11 years since I moved to Tampa in 2007.  Once in a while, I will go up to the in-patient floors in the hospital and play my guitar and sing my songs to our patients.   I love sharing the gospel by reading the bible, praying with them and singing my worship song to and with my patients so that they can be encouraged and be blessed.

 

Recently I have decided that instead of paying a producer, that I would learn how to produce and record my own songs.   I have always had a dream of creating and composing my music and decided to jump into the deep and I am trusting God to take me where he wants me to be.

Dubistry

Dubistry pushes barriers. Drawing on lovers’ rock, punk and jazz, Dubistry combines club music and art music, island sounds and city streets, into brash, warm songs for dancing – and making revolution. The combinations feel organic and fresh, yet never too far from their musical roots.

 

Dubistry’s latest recording “FUEL FOR THE FIRE” continues the band’s maturing trajectory toward a sound that unifies musical genres. From the funk-inflected “Butterfly” to the Lover’s Rock inspired “All Through the Night” to the weighty dub of “Tomorrow”, Dubistry continues to make new sounds while respecting their influences. This is especially apparent in the reimagining of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”, which maintains the original melody while adding classic dub rhythms and effects.

 

Dubistry are –

Ahmondylla Best: Percussion

 

Dunia Best: vocals, flute

 

Todd Nocera: keyboards

 

Rashad Randolph: Drums

 

Aram Sinnreich: bass

 

Matt Urbania: Guitars

TTilawok is a photographer and electronic music producer based in Stockholm, Sweden hailing from San Luis Obispo, California. His photography utilizes double exposure to create unique scenes from both natural and human born landscapes. His musical style ranges from house and techno to lo-fi, minimal, and ambient. Drawing upon a range of influences such as jazz, psych, and synthesizer-based music, TTilawok translates the surreal realms created in his photos and videos with his electronic soundscapes. Combining samples, synthesis, and analog drum machines, he traverses acid, ambient, low-fi and downbeat with his first full-length release, Into Memory.

 

 

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

Music has always intrigued me since it is a timeless form of art that can make connections with people regardless of their background and what language they speak. I make music to help me process and grow as a person, and I want to release music which translates the different feelings and emotions we go through into sound. The reason for committing to this album, “Into Memory”, was to produce a listening experience dedicated to the feelings that come with living and traveling abroad, or simply starting life on your own.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

The songs on the album are mostly instrumental, but there are some sampled vocals on “Changing Color” and “Long Way From Home” which came from searching the deep web for inspiration.

Discuss your life outside the music world.

I’m originally from a small beach town in California and I have been living in Stockholm, Sweden since late 2015. I got the travel bug in college which led me on a trip around Europe and eventually got me a job in Sweden. I really appreciate Scandinavia for being so organized and focused on individual health and happiness. The work-life balance here is great, and I love Scandinavian design. Lately, I’ve been traveling around a lot and just got back from trips to Hawaii and Japan.

Discuss your music career.

I was a drummer for six years until moving away to college. Since I couldn’t move with my drum kit, I stopped drumming and didn’t get back into music until discovering the possibilities of portable gear when living in Copenhagen. I played drums on the guitarist’s midi keyboard and our keyboard player had this little synth that fit in his backpack. This is when I realized I could get a full-on production going with drum machines and synthesizers. Since I’ve been on the road the last four years, I really enjoy being able to make music on a laptop with a few pieces of gear. Apart from working on producing more tracks, I’ll start to play my new album live.

.

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

TTilawok is an anagram based on the word Kilowatt. I use to have a blog called Kilowatt and when I decided to shut that down and spend more time on music and photography I rearranged the name to fit the new medium. It all connects back to the theme of light.

List your five favorite music videos with reasons.

I like “Kiasmos – Gaunt” and “Daniel Avery – Space Echo [From DJ-Kicks]” because of the way the music fits with the environment. They are very surreal and transport you into that reality.

 

“lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to” is a classic. Always live-streaming good tunes.

 

“In Rainbows: From The Basement – Radiohead” – because “In Rainbows” and Thom.

 

“Blue Hawaii Boiler Room LIVE Show” is one of my favorite live boiler rooms to watch or listen to.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your source of inspiration.

I am inspired by people who bring positive change, nature, and clean minimal design.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your impression on dealing with paparazzi.

There is a time and a place I guess. No one wants to be bothered in privacy, but getting recognition for what people achieve is important to foster new ideas.

.

.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

“Rooted” was recorded in Stockholm in October. It was super cold and dark out, but I recently got a new Elektron drum machine. This was pretty exciting for me, so that can probably explain some of the energy behind the song. I decided to change out all the drums previously used for the Elektron. That machine makes such a difference.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your future projects.

I recorded an album with “The Space Wanderer” who traveled from New York to Stockholm for a week-long residency at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion). It was the dead of winter in December 2017, so we housed ourselves up in the studio for a week and the result was the formation of our side project, Rymdeko, which means space echo in Swedish. We will release the album sometime in 2018. The future will mean more music released as TTilawok and Rymdeko.

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

Eimi Tagore-Erwin, Nick Comaratta, Nic Justice, Josh Newport, Joe Camilleri, Alex MacDonald, Nurzada Sultanova, family, friends in Sweden and beyond in no particular order.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

Works for some.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release of songs.

I am more on the quality side. I got rid of a lot of draft songs in the making of “Into Memory”. The whole process took over a year from ideas to recording, production, and mastering, but quality does not always take time. I am quite fond of the tracks we made as Rymdeko and those were all produced at a rate of two songs per day. I know some people release songs with an emphasis on quantity, but I don’t think that always works. It takes a balance. The greatest artists have used both ways so it’s no formula.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

A career is a career, whether it’s in music or not. If you treat music like a 9-5 you can get a lot more done. If you pursue it after your 9-5 you are just working two jobs and it takes a lot of focus and motivation to get anything done.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

I understand the need for genres to categorize music and make it easier for people to find the movements they like. I think genres can be limiting though, if you become genre locked then that can just prevent you from experimenting with things like bpm, song structure, or different instruments. Cross-genre experimentation is what keeps the music interesting, so I don’t think genres should be used as more than a way to group your music with other artists that have similarities.

.

.

.

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

I don’t really like to despise things; I get that people like music totally different than what I would listen to. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt, but personally, I don’t really find any joy in listening to the sub-genre “bro-country.”

.

List your five favorite movies with reasons.

Almost Famous – Totally influenced me as a kid to see the lives of each character and how messing up is a part of life.

 

Across the Universe – Cool to see what life must have been like in my parents’ time.

 

A Clockwork Orange – Because the author made up too many words for the book to make sense. The movie puts things into perspective and calls out a lot of issues with our society.

 

Life Aquatic – Wes Anderson is an all-around wizard. This one, in particular, is great because of the story, soundtrack, and uniforms.

 

Rango – Totally took me off-guard at a time when I thought all hope was lost in humanity and filmmaking.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“Rooted” – To me it describes the feeling of being firmly planted where you are. Swedish winter can be pretty desolate, so having things going for you during that is important. Be it with your relationship, friends, apartment, music gear, etc. Everything makes a difference and feeling rooted is a good thing when things are going your way.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

The album is called “Into Memory” because it tells the story of living abroad and on the road. All ten songs refer back to a memory from the last few years, good or bad. These were the years where life really started, after school and leaving home. “Into Memory” stands for the process of navigating back to those memories, and not forgetting the process.
