FOSHO by Mello Mel

mel

Mello Mel’s FOSHO is finally out! I for one am stupidly excited about that.  I have had the pleasure of working with Mel at his studio several times and must say that this individual is really a complete producer.  Never before have I listened to modern instrumental music without trying to imagine my own lyrics over the track.  Correction, I always try to rap over Mel’s Fosho tracks, but the extreme enjoyability of the music slaps me into a trance that only allows me to focus on the instrumentation and not what I may want to add.

The FOSHO album is 2 years in the making.  I am always in the awe of the amount of work that Mel puts in, and the ear for sound that he has.  An ear that could take a drum and base sound, mix it with “elevated” trap a little boom bap, house music, etc.  The outcome is a sound that you can dance to, smoke to, have as good background music as you engage with friends.  Maybe even a good tune to put on when you want to talk to an attractive lady and possibly get some action, as there are less distractions with no lyrics.  So, If you are not in the Jersey area to pick up a physical you can free stream, or support this extremely talented black man by purchasing the album for $9.99 USD on Bandcamp.com.

Evolution of New Jersey Music Culture

So, as many of you lovely individuals may know I am in a music group called Negros Americanos.  You may also know that I am from New Jersey.  We have been living back in this state and country since about 2012, and one thing that I can say is that I have always been chasing the New York scene, and not unlocking all of the fun secrets of Jersey.

However, I have learned from hanging out with Mello mel -who also produced the Negros Americanos-Flowverdose” record, that Jersey has a great scene that needs to be explored further.  I met Mello Mel through his sister Kaylan Jones of the clothing and accessories mark Forever Audatious and Dubois Ashong-director of the movie No Boni, of which I am also featured in.  Hanging out with these guys in Newark has shown me that there is a different type of scene here.

Some of the most enjoyable shows that I have been to as of late, do not involve singing or rapping.  Only a producer, some knobs, and a little “goin dumb” -as they say in the urban community-.  I am learning that it is all you need.  I am also learning that this style of show is growing and people enjoy coming out “getting right”-they also say that in the urban community- and vibing to some good instrumental music like Mel’s!!!
