What happens when you take a chainsaw, some fire, a mountain of ants, a lake of soda, a tree trunk, a broken television set and a large dose of insomnia and throw them in a martini shaker with some amazing electronic music and a musician with a lot of extra time on his hands, armed with a video camera?? Well, that is pretty much what went down when Om created Rithma TV. Tune in to Rithma TV to escape boring confines of your cubicle and enter a world where the possibilities for new discovery and destruction are pretty much endless, and usually end in some sort of amusing disaster. Take it from Rithma " A lot of weird shizzle goes down here at ‘Rancho Relaxo’ home of Rithma Music and haven to ridiculous people. Don’t Worry. More on the way."

The most stressful time of year is on its way, and I have found myself a musical remedy, Mushroom Jazz 6 is arriving just in time to get me through. On October 21st, DJ Mark Farina is back again with his signature style, and the 6th installment of the Mushroom Jazz series. Just as life kicks into high gear and the holiday season approaches, Mushroom Jazz 6 swoops in and carries you away into a downtempo mix up of instrumental hip hop sounds and soulful beats. Sitting back with my headphones and listening to Mushroom Jazz 6 has brought me to a level of pure chill contentment. I have just taken a hit of some musical marijuana with Mushroom Jazz 6 and I am coasting off of it’s smooth, soulful, funky flavor. It is rare that an entire album can totally clear your mind, and flip your mood, and this newest edition to the Mushroom Jazz series has captured that. Don’t do drugs kids, just pick up a copy of the long awaited Mushroon Jazz 6 when it drops on October 21st.

Check out the world premier of Black Spade’s first music video for ‘Evil Love’ from his new album “To Serve with Love.” In this new album Black Spade continues to separate himself from mainstream hip-hop artists with his distinctive sound and themes of love, life, and politics. Through his smooth vocals and poetic rhymes, Black Spade reflects on the emotions that come along with human relationships, and his dedication to serving the music game with love. In his video for ‘Evil Love,’ directed by assistants for Sophia Coppola, Spade paints an artistic picture of the struggles, expectations, betrayals, break-ups and make-ups of life with a mix up of home video clips and old war footage. This video combines tender imagery of a sacred love declining with clips of dropping bombs, fighter planes, and explosions. These contradictory themes not only showcase Black Spade’s unique style, but also illustrate the song’s title ‘Evil Love.’
