It’s been a fairly busy two months since the last post.

Hey everyone. Welcome to another installment of my blog. It’s been two months since my last post and it’s been a fairly busy two months.

From two weeks ago.

I’ve been almost all over the state of New York as well as parts of Connecticut where I’m either on a commercial set or working a road race. With so much travel, it’s been somewhat hard to do anything else. And with the summer upon us, it’s only going to get even more busy. But I’m up to the challenge of keeping my blog updated and filling you in on what’s going on around me.

L-Squad

Because my post will be short today, I will end it with some new music. The song is called “U Already Know,” and it’s by the group, L-Squad. They’re based out of the Hudson Valley and their single is off of their EP titled, #WTT (Watch The Takeover). So watch and share the video and enjoy the rest of this fine week as I will myself.

The end of June: Doppelgangaz, new picture of Chasaity Colon, and a upcoming workshop

29 06 2015

Hey what’s up everyone? Welcome to another installment of my blog. As of late, this month has been a fairly busy one for me. However, I have time today to make this post just as the end of June is upon us.

The Doppelgangaz

The Doppelgangaz

I haven’t spent much time talking about what’s been happening in the music world due to my busy schedule and I’m happy that I have time to do so today. Earlier in the month, The Doppelgangaz released their digital album, “Parts Unknown.” If you go on their website, you’ll be able to download it for free. While this go around only features eight tracks, it’s quality music that’s enough to hold you til their next album release.

And recently, they uploaded the music video to their single, “Rox Wid Her.”

Model Maria Manrique

First up is another addition to my ever growing photography session series. I took this shot of Maria over the weekend and I love the fact that I had her in perfect focus. I had my settings at f/4, 1/125th shutter speed, and 125 ISO for this one and then decided it looked better in black and white when it came to the post production phase.

D.O.C.

D.O.C.

And in the music world, D.O.C. released the music video to his latest single, “Believe.” Give it a watch and also check out his soundcloud page as he has been releasing a lot of good music. I’ll post the link below.

Released yesterday, I worked on this music video alongside Ben Carey (DP), Bryan Schlam (Director), and slew of great crew members. Though I couldn’t stay for the whole shoot, it was a blast helping put it all together. The band was great and the whole atmosphere was very lively. If you want to follow the band, Ill post the links to their facebook page and their tour dates.

1 10 2014

Hey what’s up everyone? Welcome to the first blog of October! What a way to end September for me as I worked on a great short film and ended the last week of the month by working the Bronx 10 mile race. This month is off to a potentially good start as I’ve been contacted by a few production companies about working on their upcoming projects. So while I’m keeping my fingers crossed, here’s a few other things that have been happening as of late.

Soul Food:New Music by E. Joox and Lucid Dreams

10 09 2014

What’s up everyone? Welcome to another installment of my blog. It’s the midway point of the week and we have new music released by a couple artists that you should be familiar with. As you’ll see, I didn’t write much as I believe the music will speak for itself.

E. Joox

E. Joox

Always staying busy and grinding away, E. Joox has had a great 2014 so far. Earlier in the week, he released the video for his single, “Soul Food.” Off of his recent EP, “Black in America,” it’s 4 minutes of storytelling that hits you inside. Definitely worth a listen.

D.O.C.

D.O.C.

Another video to check out is by D.O.C. Although released near the end of last month, “Fire Flies” is off the upcoming project, #thecountdown.

And this was released yesterday. Featuring D.O.C. and D3V, the name of the song is U.A.K. (U Already Know) by Ace Supreme.
