My brother from another mother, J-X aka Julian Lozano has just dropped his first album Document 33. The album is pure inspirational, genius, passion and perspition. julian's is hip-hop's answer to the question ... can positive lyricism have the same power as other forms of hip-hop? The answer is a strong ...YES ... Check out Disillusioned -

LOVEBIRDS :: Want you in my soul - And getting your ass up and shaking like it should

The slow sweet beats of this track soon give way to a seriously bouncy demand to get up, get out and get some. Reassign your alarm clock track. Oh and leave your alarm/phone on the other side of the room. Yeah, that's a trick I recently learned. Maybe I'll even start doing it soon.



MORNING GLORY :: Shout (C2C remix) and Sunny (Mercury Edit II) +playlist

Morning Glory parties are springing up everywhere - and they're to be celebrated with friends and strangers alike! These early am dance gatherings are moving the party out of your pants and into the dance studio with free coffee, smoothies, yoga classes and awesome dj's that make you very very happy you got up early (I know people who started getting ready for the party at 4:45 AM). In their own words, Morning Gloryville parties are "immersive morning dance experience(s)  for those who dare to challenge morning culture and start their day in style! We’re on a soul-shaking mission to turn clubbing upside down and transform mornings into something truly remarkable."

I thank all the gods and goddesses of good times and great things that I found out about this week's SF Morning Gloryville get down in time to go to bed early and set my alarm (on the other side of the room), to make sure I got up to get down by 7am.

The dj that really got me going was doing a special house set that his soundcloud doesn't really reflect, but here's the track that got me shaking

And he played this to close out his set and the party itself. 

It was an incredible way to share sober, sunlit and sweaty time with former strangers and new friends and get a groove on... find or start one near you!



LET'S BOUNCE :: James Curd feat. Yeah Boy with a hot Miguel Campbell remix too

I've been a little stuck, looking for something to hook me, pull me, push me out of bed and into the sparkly universe we call home. I bought running shoes. The expensive kind that have little trampolines in them (well that's what they feel like). I got the squishy soft socks too. I got a target, a cool art piece I heard about that's placed on top of a big hill for another few days. But something was still missing.

Not anymore.

This track may be a few months old, but it hit me at just the right time. At first listen, the Miguel Campbell grabbed me by the hips, but then the piano, synth and video game glibs of the original got my head, well.. bouncing. So here are both for you - flip a coin and shake, sway and bounce your tail (or head) accordingly.

I'm heading up that hill!
