This Dude is Mad as a Hatter: Femi the Drifish

Do you take your Doom, with a side of Kool Keith and the thrash of Jack White's guitar? That's as close as I can currently get to describing what Femi the Drifish brings to the stage, to music, and to art in general. And yes that's a question not acutally a description. The album art gives you an indication of the challenge; he's the mad man artist you meet that makes you question whether it really is the rest of us that are crazy. This isn't music for the faint of heart not the faint of mind.
The Drifish has created his own niche that incorporates rock, spoken word, and hip hop into a delicious mix. This is music for those who love lyrics, love the unexpected and love live music. You'll be tempted to just rock out with the melodies and sing along with his band the Out of Water Experience. Do that but then go back and listen to lyrics. This is where you see the real genius of Femi the Drifish. Those lyrics at first blush sound as if he were simply spitting nonsense ala Lewis Carroll or the actual hatters high off of factory fumes but very much like DOOM everything makes perfect sense.

Tune in; don't miss our interview of the high energy, skillful lyrical wordsmith. Hopefully we don't end up tied up or in straight jackets :) Listen to the live interview Saturday @11 am EST here:

Yes it's live so tweet questions, comments, and thoughts to @GMGPShow and @TheDrifish!

Matter of fact for now you just have to hear him for yourself:


Pick up the albums Mad as a Hatter and The Clown with No Circus here: or on ITunes. Femi the Drifish and the Out of Water Experience will be at the Fells Point Festival today Oct. 6, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. Check them out if you're in the area.

The Evolution of the Emcee and Poet

Call 911! Alert the authorities. The hosts have been kidnapped and a takeover is happening. Matter of fact just tell everyone you know to tune in! Ananamas and Eight sense will be holding down the host spots and taking you on a journey. The Last Born child will share his projects The Consumer 360 Project and The Evolution of the Emcee. The Evolution of the Emcee does as promised and takes the listener through time and space. This is a head nod, listen carefully, he said what, some real lyrical nest, shit. Interspersed throughout the EP are interludes that include the beats behind classics like "Memory Lane", "98 Till Infinity", "Chiefrocker", "Reminisce" and more. Last Born takes you inside the soul of an emcee and the soul of all true hip hop heads through descriptions of falling for this form and connects it to other elements like djing, poetry and more.He's also featured on The Consumer 360 Project which is another one to cop. I know you all heard that "Passing Me Boy-2012" joint. There is much more on this mixtape.  Check it out here:

And if that's not enough his big sis who he credits for introducing him to the form, Miss Sharon "IMATELLMUVA" herself will be in the studio! She is a writer, poet, artist, and jewelry designer. She has made leather cuffs and accessories for Craig G, Captain Lou of Consumer Voice, OOH of Brownfish, Kane Mayfield, Eightsense, our Shameeka Dream and other notables.

Home is Where the Art Is... Substantial is Coming to GMGPSHOW!

His lyrics have Substance for a reason. Substantial has been extremely productive these last few years.  Blazing stages and booths consistently from Brooklyn to PG to Japan for over 10 years now. We are very grateful that the emcee with the unique flow, ill production, tight graphic design, and allaroundtheworld dope collabos is gracing us with his presence this Saturday.  Be sure to cop his newest project- Home is Where the Art Is, in advance so you can ask questions, send some love, or just get some GOOD MUSIC in your eardrums!

For more on Substantial, visit www.the QN5 website and check out the mini-doc on his album release party.

8orMas Reasons to Tune In!

Let me count the ways:
1) Anonamas the showstopping singer who like Lauryn rips many mics on a daily whether for a full house or pedestrians on the street will be holding it down!
2) Eightsense the rapper/producer extraordinaire who creates that boom bap sound will bless us with his freestyle skills.
3) To find out what Anonamas means when says "Music should develop as life develops..."
4) To hear more music like this:

5) this:

6) and this:

7) Because as great as the tracks above are, there's nothing like actually seeing 8ormas perform.  Those who know, know and those who don't will soon.
8) Because we'll have more of that GOOD GOOD music from artists around the world who still care about making great music.
9)To find out why this is not that and how you can get to be part of this.
10) You already know you love the show!

Hood Metal, Comedy and that GOOD GOOD Music

This Saturday we plan to laugh our assess off, bang our heads, and stomp our feet. You may have seen him on BET's Hip Hop Awards in 2009,  or on BET's Comic View. He's been in commercials for addidas and popeye's chicken; maybe you even heard him on the Live Wire Show or on the Big Phat Morning Show as Gerard. If you haven't trust us you don't want to be absent when Larry Lancaster makes his appearance. Prepare to laugh until it's too hard to breathe.

Also, we plan to have one of the originators of Hood Metal. If you have no idea what that is, think Jimmy Hendrix meets Public Enemy meets Fish Bone and you get close to the idea. Natru lead emcee of Band 209 will be in the lab.

And of course we'll have more of that GOOD GOOD music. Stay tuned into that GOOD GOOD show this Sat. August 18th @11AM EST as we have an out of body experience from laughing and banging our heads against the table with comedian Larry Lancaster and @Natru of Band 209.

Check out Band 209 performing "Slum Lord" at Judah's Juke Joint:

In the Studio with Destiny: Ama Chandra and Bangla

This Saturday is going to be a musical experience to remember.  We will be having BOTH Ama Chandra and Bangla (of the Bangladesh Project) in the studio to share their music with us.

So.... ladies first.  Ama Chandra will be visiting us for the second time. Her first visit last year, left us amazed by her singing prowess, musical ingenuity and inspiring persona. She was working on an album and film while continuing to bring healing to the community through her work as a natural healer and nurse. She walked into our lab that day with music pouring out of her, literally singing all the parts to a song--jazz singer style--she was working on. We were dancing before the interview started.

If you've been listening to the show since we've gone live, you've been getting to know Bangla. Bangla first visited us a few months ago with two core members of the Bangladesh Project--Radio Rom, bass guitarist and vocalist, and Supaman, drummer, and then again to perform live with the fantastic Anonamas Grooves on the mic. Just so you know Bangla heads two bands--The Bangladesh Project and SeeWEED (started by him and OOH of BROWNFISH). On top of that he's the producer behind some of the magical tracks you've heard on the show--"Big Wheels" which features OOH and M.E. and "Bounce" which features female lyricist the Real B-Fly--to name a few.

What happens when you bring together a powerful songstress on level with the big leagues (Patti, Diana, Nina...I know but trust me, what I'm saying is no exaggeration) and an extraordinary producer and musician?'ll just have to tune in this Saturday, August 11th @ 11 am EST to that GOOD GOOD Show. Don't miss this one.
