WRONGLIPS presents: YUKIMI NAGANO

This feature was originally published on Wronglips, the blog, my girl, singer Sarah White & I used to run together. Both Sarah & I were fans of Yukimi's unique voice since the first time we heard her on a track called Blues Alley produced by Ge-ology. After tracking her down, we were tuned into the Little Dragon story---way back since the beginning of their musical journey (circa 2007 myspace days!). Since then, she and her brilliant band have risen to much-deserved  international fame and have conquered hearts all over the world. Yukimi is one of my favorite artists, she's always stayed authentic and true to the craft. Here's a peek into their the world of Little Dragon from the voice of Yukimi.
WHAT DO YOU DO? We do music!
WHERE DO YOU CALL HOME... Good old grey and rainy Gothenburg!
TRUE BEAUTY IS… Arthur Russels Thats Us/Wild Combination
BEATS… are always good to have
TRUE SEXY IS… our boy and girlfriends
MUSIC IS MY… savior
ART DOES NOT…create war
MY NIGHTS ARE…warm and cozy
THESE 3 TURN ME ON..

SELF-KNOWLEDGE … good to have in the right amount
ENOUGH OF … hatred and ugly ducks
MY CREATIVITY IS… mysterious
TRUE POWER IS…Prince I would die for u
LIFE CAN BE THE... most beautiful thing ever.
TO LOVE IS TO… know you
I'VE GOT FLOW BECAUSE…. I have good friends!

Bonnie Banane - M U S C L E S (Official Video)


I was put on this gem recently...she is hilarious.  Muscles is off of Bonnie Banane's Greatest Hits released on the Paris-based underground label weirdata.On sale digitally.

MixSCAN: Groundbreaking Music Technology

I've been a big advocate of creating technologies that benefit and get artists paid while keeping things free for the listeners. Pirating was never cool, but we all did it at some point...in the spirit of sharing, it is time to cut out the middleman (like those corny virus-ridden download sites) and end the era of stealing when there is a way to support your favorite musicians (which is why I prefer to use pandora & spotify that pays licensing fee to the artists in their catalogue after each play). This project is right up in my alley.: innovation bringing DJ music to the fans and royalties to the artists-both the DJ & the original artist. Check their campaign on indiegogo.com.

In a nutshell: They've developed a patented new technology that can for the first time ever identify all of the music in a DJ mix. They then pay royalties to the artists in the mix anytime the mix is streamed. They are also introducing the world's first royalty program specifically for DJs. DJs will now get paid a royalty anytime someone plays their mixes. 

Their DJ Royalty Program will enable them to get all of the world's best DJs on board and achieve their goal to create the world's largest library of DJ mixed music - live sets, recorded mixes, brand new and archived content - for the fans to be able to access anytime and anywhere. Globally. 

FREE DOWNLOAD: Chris Turner 'LOVElife is a Challenge'


With original productions from MeLo-X, Pete Rock, Steve Mckie, J. Most, Matt Stevens, Conley Whitfield, Phantom Lover and collaborations with Moruf & Jesse Boykins III, LOVElife is a Challenge is a proper introduction to Chris Turner's remarkable singing talent. It is hard to believe that he is giving it away for free. Classic yet fresh- this is true soul music.

World Soul Music is what Chris Turner uses as his remedy throughout this journey of life and love. So he presents to you his new project "LOVElife" to add to your collection of remedies that helps you continue to live life in all of its beauty. As a young man, Turner has experienced many worlds through this thing called life performing with musicians/friends such as Jesse Boykins III, ERIMAJ, Bilal, and Esperanza Spalding, as well as being father of two. "I'm blessed to know the feeling of fatherhood and to have a family of my own" says Turner, "It has taken all this time for me to gain the confidence to express what I have been living through this whole time." This project is every aspect and extent of his love; the evolution of emotions expressed from a good man with music as his vessel. The importance of Loving Yourself first and foremost before you can give True Love to a significant other, as well as the world, is key, and is a lesson that Turner has embodied in life directly and musically. 
"I am merely a middle man trying to bring you and true love together. LOVElife is my melodic contribution that highlights the significance of loving yourself, sharing growth, and learning to forgive. Releasing this body of work on this day is my gift to you, for I was born on this day, and life is a precious gift to me." says Turner. LOVElife is a necessary part of an important search to find romance, of which there is no end."
