Playing With Dirt
May 15, 2014 5 Comments
Since releasing 25th Album, I’ve been enjoying being ‘in between albums’ and just making music for the sake of making music. I’ve been playing with a few bands here and there and I’m working on some new tunes with Fascinoma which I’m very excited about.
But my main focus right now is a project with rapper Dirt Brown. You might remember his voice from the track “Daydreamin.” We also did a presentation together a few months back about the creation of the song.
Mehul(his real name) is of Indian ancestry and we share a love for the music of India. I approached him a few months back about creating some new music together. He loved the idea and I was thrilled when he suggested we infuse a bit of Bollywood into the tracks. The result has been bouncy, funky cuts with a distinct Indian flavor. His rhyme topics have spanned from being drunk in the club to rapping about the challenges faced by Indian-Americans living in the US.
