If you just watched the clip your probably still in awe, The Deluge is a insane all in one portable self contained multi tracking sampler, synth, and sequencer that is exspanding, an is really about to change the game for everyone in the hardware sampler/synth game. A lot of wild tools are popping up everywhere we have our eyes on a lot of new ones and this is the cherry on top. Such a double edged sword sharing amazing tools, tips and techniques. When things are too cool to share, it enevitable that everyone will catch on. So we wanted to give you the insiders look at this monster of a instrument.

Classic Material: Juvenile - 400 Degreez

This week's throwback Thursday (I know it’s Friday) album; first time we heard it way back on BET uncut - for your listening pleasure some of our favorites from the way back, In 1998 it was ahead of its time, the album released on Cash Money / Universal Records. Selling over 5 million copies, it remains one of the top selling projects on Cash Money. Still inspiring new generations of fans (shout out to yunglenox a 7-year-old drawing this classic, working harder than you)

The album still holds up with a recent review on Pitchfork as well, scoring a 9.4 even to today's standard - embed  below is the whole album.

Vynil Factory portrait of Stowns Throw Studios is what we need here in NJ

The Vynil Factory (the most aspirational creative music collective, media house, label, venue, n' archive on the planet), they made - Our synths weigh a ton: Inside Stones Throw Studios Super inspiring film it is a great impression of what makes the new Stones Throw studio work; summed up story is exactly what Peanut butter wolf says “Since we had the studio we have noticed a lot of the artist on Stowns Throw are collaborating and getting to know one another, to me that's a healthy environment, it creates more interesting music” and that's what its all about. Basicly reaffirming what I been trying to get more folks to go in on a crappy brick n mortor n put some elbow grease in; Get out of the bedroom or clean it up and invite folks over! We need to find our Jake Viator or all become more sonically tech savvy and commited to a central gathering point.

We need this so bad. So we can have a haven to keep our projects rolling, collections of gear and controllers safe but getting used, plan IRL adventures, make & ship albums or merch, have workshops with each other, trade skills, and be a collective inspired by what VF and Stonesthrow are causally sharing and motivating everyone to do. We dabbled with a central location at Iron Works in the city of Orange, NJ in ESSEX county way back in 2015 and made time to play and hang with each other; I miss that. I’m working to bring it back if you are.
