Theme From 94.7 The Wave's "Making Waves" by DJ Chuck "thE oLd SouL"

Every year, LA radio station 94.7 The Wave produces a segment called "Making Waves." "Making Waves" is dedicated to recognizing status quo movers and shakers in the African-American community from all different professions and purposes.

Along with being assigned to co-produce this year's installment alongside Morning Show Host Pat Prescott, Pat gave me the opportunity to produce the theme music that will be heard under the interview highlights (in radio, we call it a "music bed") that will be aired throughout February on The Wave.

So right as the station is going to commercial, don't touch your dial just yet, lol! That is when these 1 minute production spots will be gracing the airwaves backed by some H.F.P. sonics.

And Then I Saw Her... (From The Motion Picture "Dear White People") By DJ Chuck "thE oLd SouL"

All Instrumentation and Programming By DJ Chuck "thE oLd SouL" For Honor Flow Productions

This past Tuesday night, I finally found time to go to the movies and check out "Dear White People." Man listen... in a status quo were "post race" and stereotypes are a subject of debate, this flick throws that conversation right in your face and makes your laugh in the process. I identified with his movie so much. I can't tell you how many scenes seemed to have came right out my college undergrad years, lol!

Furthermore, personally, I am EXTREMELY proud to be a part of the film's soundtrack! Pay close attention to the scene where Coco is filming her infamous vlog, that is this Honor Flow Productions jam in the back I named "And Then I Saw Her..." because the instrumental just felt like "A Fly Love Song."

My sister and I were hi-fiving in the theater like we just scored a touchtown lol! Super crazy to hear something you cooked up in your bedroom in a movie on the big screen, and then to see your name in the credits!? Wild man.

Lastly, a testimony of listening to your gut; when I was submitting beats for this and other potential projects, this was the only beat that I didn't make before hand in the batch I submitted. Something told me to make a fresh one to complete the group of tracks. And it turns out, this was the one that was placed. I heard this story a million times, but since I've experienced it, I'm firm believer in this saying: it only takes one. But it does takes a couple dozen before you get to that one, lol!
Special thanks to Paul Stewart of Atom Factory Music for the opportunity and go see Dear White People now! And take a couple friends with you!

Backstage Pass # 2- 2014 Taste Of Soul with 94.7 The Wave (10.18.14)

To hear over half a million people... yes, seriously, no exaggeration... A HALF OF MILLION PEOPLE start word for word "sing-a-longs" while your on stage performing is the greatest feeling any DJ or musician can experience. And it happened in masses 3 times this year at Taste of Soul 2014.

1) Greg Mack and I's 3 minute impromptu Funk music revue in this order: George Clinton's "Knee Deep," Zapp's "More Bounce To The Ounce," Brick's "Dazz," Lakeside's "Fantastic Voyage," Parliament's "Flashlight" and Prince's "Head."

2) When The E Family was about to take the stage and we had to pause their introduction for a second because the crowd was still singing part of the 2nd version AND chorus to Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" even though I had just stopped the record about a minute before.

3) Then 35 minutes later at the end of The E Family's set, Stevie Wonder pops on out of no where stage with Shelia E, and sung a piece of "Don't You Worry About A Thing" (A personal favorite of mine in Stevie's catalogue to boot. And yes, thanks to my sister Tyler, we have HD film of that, lol!)
That led to me a 10 minute impromptu mix of all Stevie records. My Lord, if their was going to be an earthquake on Crenshaw Blvd that night, it was close. That crowd energy was at critical mass and I cut the crossfader so much for the crowd to sing back, I honesty could have left the songs completely off and they would have carried the entire tune word for word.

Honestly, my written account doesn't do this justice. You had to be there to experience this. If you ever doubted that music is one of the most powerful pieces of energy in the world and brings us together, "one nation under groove," this is my testimony. I only dreamed of days like this. Feeling euphoria like this. Rocking stages like this. And God willing, hopefully many more to comes. This is why I love why do. I will never forget this day. Thank you Crenshaw Blvd. Love to my crew at 94.7 The Wave... we did that, lol!

Yearbook (The Mount:Year One)

In late September, I received a Facebook message from a college classmate that "wanted to see if I could do something for her since I was all in the music business." Oh boy I thought, messages that start off like this usually result in two kinds of requests: one, to help them get something on the radio or two, concert tickets. Turns out, she asked if I could type out a playlist of some popular mainstream Hip-Hop and R&B songs from our freshman year at Marymount College for a memory box she was complying.

Now, anyone that knows me will tell you, I am always one to soundtrack associate almost every occurrence in my life. From the moment I received that message, the wheels started turning, and I saw myself scribble out a list of over 40 songs the next morning. Once I looked down at my hieroglyphics, bookmarked moments of my freshman year of college; one of the most influential 12 months in my life, started to flashback in my mind. A time in my life when I realized "I knew this world was crazy, but not this crazy." I realized it moves at the speed of light such as the album covers photo; a shot I took of myself one late night on the colleges bus for photography class. Just a written list would not suffice nor do justice, these experiences had to be relived through speakers.

Unlike The Demonstration series, the record selection process was more based on historic context than my own personal taste. It had to be given that this was the soundtrack for that time period, and not just for my own ears (that is another list in itself).

Important to highlight is much of the landscape of what Hip-Hop and R&B music has become presently started to manifest that year. Just listen to Snoop and Akons I Wanna Love You or the Hyphy Movement cuts on this tape and tell me you cant hear its minimalist influence on DJ Mustard; currently spearheading arguably the West Coasts most influential sound since Dr. Dre and Scott Storch unleashed the lowrider Grand Piano and Symphony String bounce of the magnum opus, Still D.R.E. Then there is the affair of Hip-Hop with Dance music. It is a common place now, but later became pop culture foreshadowing heard in, my humble opinion, Timbalands best cover to cover production work outside of Missy and Aaliyah: Justin Timberlakes Future Sex/Love Sounds, Nelly Furtados Loose, and his own Shock Value. All three of those LPs were laced with vibes of Electronic, dance floor driven monsters.

Admittedly, 95% of these songs I jammed from jump, 4% grew on me over time, and one song on here I honesty cringed at including. But I knew I had to given both its popularity and association with one of those hilarious flashbacks I mentioned above. I'll let you try to figure out which song it is.

But that is the power of music. It is a hell of a stimulating sensation. The melody and lyrics are the flux capacitor and our mind is the DeLorean. With that established as the motto, I welcome you to the first installment of my nostalgia trip with no roads. First stop... 30800 Palos Verdes Drive East... Fall of 2006.

These were the sounds, these were the quotes this is the music Yearbook of The Mount: Year One.

Soul Claps & Salutes and Thank You For Listening,

DJ Chuck "thE oLd SouL"

H.F.P. X iStandard Producers LA Showcase (9.15.14)

For those not in the industry know, the iStandard Showcase gives up and coming producers the opportunity to play a set of their beats in front of an elite group of fellow producers and record label A&Rs.

This was an excellent experience and it was a release to finally get to preview some of the new-new we have been working on for over a year and half now to the public. Some of those new jams I played during my set you can hear in this short film.

Thank you to iStandard, thank you to Shawn Barron, Cardiak and Dawaun Parker for the words of wisdom and thank you to everyone who came to The Dragonfly to vibe out with a brotha! Soul Claps and Salutes.
