NEW SAUCE – The Album Is Here. Hip Hop, Salsa, NYC

Click Here

Click Here

Hip Hop and Salsa and NYC just had a baby.

This is the New Sauce album.

It is also the introduction of New Sauce as an original style of music.

There may be parallels to other music, but I’m pretty sure you haven’t heard something quite like this.

For the most part this is really an English language album.

Check Puertored for instance. He’s a Puerto Rican, born and raised in NYC, who is not Spanish speaking. In his household it was English.

I wanna talk about the origins a bit because this thing is really a long time coming.

This idea occurred when I was visiting Puerto Rico in 2000. I had a cassette player, but didn’t bring that much music with me. I walked to the local music store and ended up buying like 5 Hector Lavoe/ Willie Colon albums cuz I’ve always been a big fan.

So I had my Salsa tapes and a handful of Hip Hop tapes. As I’m sitting in a hamoc at my Amazing Titi Sile’s house, I thought of what now has become New Sauce.

I pictured Hip Hop and Salsa combined. Raw, ill, New York Hip Hop… And that raw, I’ll, old school Salsa. I figured it gotta have the Salsa rhythm cuz I wanted people to be able to dance to it. And I pictured kicking it off in English. I really saw it as an idea that came about as a result of growing up in NYC.

Some years later talking with JayMas he was telling me about his music ideas for Hip Hop and Salsa and Latin styles, that was aligned with this new style I had in mind. And through talks over the years we defined it better.

I struggled with a name for it for a long time. Then one day I found a title I liked: New Sauce. A nod to Salsa, but written in English.

It wasn’t till about maybe the end of 2012 that I did the recording with Puertored, for Bodega Down The Block. The Moon was cheese grilling us that night because that’s when it came together. That was the first real New Sauce joint. On that joint is where the production rule book for the style was written. And we wrote down those necessary ingredients.

Another great night for developing the style,was the night we recorded Puertored and JayMas for “La Vida Es Buena” another star aligned type of night.

So throughout parts of ’13 we compiled more songs. And we knew it had to be finalized, NOW, for a 2014 release.

I know it’s a great idea, but I also know that it’s just the luck of the draw. So we had to get this thing out before someone else does.

I think 14 years has been long enough.

Much Love

ATeNATiCa
Well what the hell does that mean?
And The Notes Amplify the Chaos…

I released Chaos Plays the Notes on Feb. 7th of 2012 – the same day the storm set in.
My mind got real heavy on me, and took me to a low state.
And it would fluctuate, but…
As the months went on, and the months went on,
The mind got heavy, and the mind got heavy.

I knew, before I released Chaos Plays the Notes, what the next album would be called.
It went from just a cool follow up title, to a more weighted meaning.
I see everyone around me struggling in one way or another.
And I realize how tough it can be to step forward sometimes.

So I drop this for myself. And I drop this for you. And anyone who will come across it.
It’s a Positive ZAP! TO ALL. (an expression of positive energy)

It can be an impolite sound.
I crafted it to sound distorted, noisy, heavy and dark at times.
Also to show beauty, and forward motion.
Shouts to HANU and The Village Mathematician for helping me out with this.

I hope to uplift.
I hope you Enjoy.
It was a trip.

This is an outtake from the upcoming Rusty Joints album, “ATeNATiCa”.

I love it on it’s own, but It didn’t work for me in context of the other tracks on the album.
So I decided to give it out now.

Grab a copy and slap somebody in the neck with it.
Bring an umbrella. Ella.

And a shout out to Lee for putting me on to the sampled song. šŸ™‚ ZAP!

Track 01 – And The Notes Amplify The Chaos – Artwork

Yes. This is art for the upcoming Rusty Joints album: ATeNATiCa.

But, this is not the album art.

This is the art for Track 01: And The Notes Amplify The Chaos. (ATeNATiCa is a type of abbreviated form of the track 01 title).

So that means each track will have it’s own artwork. There is 15 tracks.

Wish me luck.

NaPoWriMo April 5th – Block in a Box

Block in a Box

Sometimes there are ideas,
But no momentum,

10 or 20 ideas,
Sometimes hundreds,
Sometimes thousands, and tens of thousands,
Hundreds of thousands,
Millions and billions and trillions,
(Not the the one from the Hitchhikers)

The ideas race around like bikers,
They terrorize the establishment,
They instigate,
The break bottles and threaten,
As many ideas as quarks in the broken glass on the floors,
They instigate to make a move,

There is no momentum,

Stuck, stationed,

Ideas never the problem,
Just clutter and motivation,
And too much hesitation,

How is it possible to have a googol ideas,
And still feel no inspiration,

Stuck with a block in a box.

-Rusty Joints
