Music, What makes you happy?

Serotonin……a bright spot in UK music.

This interview was one I had been looking forward to for a long time since I first heard there music awhile ago. Jay Cobain took time out from the very busy schedule he has had of late tells us about himself and the band.

How did you get started, little history bio basically?
Serotonin was born in the summer of 2007. Myself (Jay) and one of my closest friends, Jody Shinton (Drummer), had been in a band together prior to Serotonin for several years. At the start of 2006, we disbanded and parted ways. Jody went on to work with other musicians in our town, doing various musical projects whilst I took some much needed time out. During this time, I was still writing music, but it wasn’t until mid 2007 that I was ready to “test out” the new material I had written. I called Jody and explained that I had this array of new material and I was desperate to get back into the scene again. The music we wrote in our previous band was very grunge and had a lot of Nirvana influence behind it, but I didn’t want to go back to that as it was getting us nowhere fast. After showing Jody the new music, he loved it and so did I. This was our sound. This was Serotonin.
Jody was good friends with bassist, Dave Chatterley. They had been working together in another band whilst I was taking time off. Their project had not long disbanded and Jody suggested bringing Dave in to play the bass guitar for us. As soon as we all got together it just clicked. We all fed off of each others passion and we were ready. I guess that’s how we were born.

What or who inspired you?
From a very early age it was Nirvana. Kurt Cobain was a huge influence on me and got me into writing music from the start. However, my guitar idol is one Mark Tremonti; the guitarist for Creed and Alter Bridge. Mark is the reason that I became more experimental with my music and made me want to learn to shred and solo more. Corey Taylor (Slipknot & Stone Sour) is another huge influence of mine.
Jody is a huge fan of Bon Jovi and has named Tico Torres as one of his idols, but he has many others such as The Rev (Avenged Sevenfold).
Dave is a big fan of Matt Bellamy from Muse.

What instruments do you play and who manufactured them?
I play guitar. My guitars of choice are Paul Reed Smith guitars (PRS). I absolutely love them. The trouble is that they are very expensive, but worth it.
Dave enjoys his Fender Jazz bass guitars.
Jody plays DW drums.

What do you listen too?
A lot of rock, metal and alternative metal. I like to think that I have an eclectic taste in music, but these genres seem to shine through more. I can’t stand pop music, R&B or drum and bass.

What makes you happy? sad?
Music for both. Music is such a very emotional tool.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love spending time with my fiance and our son. They are a huge part of my life.
I also enjoy directing and editing. This helps when it comes to our music videos. I am a very artistic and creatively driven person, so I channel it all into areas that interest me.

If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
Honestly? Make a living through music for the rest of my life. I understand that a lot of musicians say this, but it’s true. I guess the only difference is that it’s not about the “fame and the fortune” for me. I only need enough to support my family and be able to eat.

Anything else you think people don’t already know about you that you want to share?
This is a good question and a difficult one to answer. I don’t think there is anything… at the moment.

Have you got another album in the works and/or music videos?
There is another record in the works. Actually, we’ve not long finished it. We started working on a new EP last September and finally finished this past spring. It’s called ‘The Missing’ and consists of 5 tracks. There have been talks of releasing a new music video for one of the new songs, but nothing is official yet.
We are planning to begin work on another record soon and I’m also contemplating a possible solo album.

How hard has it been managing your own label and yourself?
We signed to Crash Records who are an independent record label in 2009. Since then we released 2 records through them. However, we have since parted with the label and we have been doing everything ourselves. Our new record (The Missing) will be released through my own label and was even recorded in my home. It’s been challenging doing everything myself, but it’s all a part of the journey.

What’s the new album about?
The new record is easily our darkest to date. The title of the EP is apt because they were songs that didn’t make our first 2 EP’s. We had a lot of requests from fans that wanted copies of songs that weren’t available on our previous records.
The record itself is based around deceit, fate and broken relations. It sounds depressing, but makes for some good music. One of the tracks is called ‘I’m Nothing’ and is actually the first song I ever wrote. I originally wrote it when I was 16 and did nothing with it. It’s changed a little bit since it’s creation, but I am proud of this song.
The inspiration behind the songs on this album?
A lot of the music that I write stems from some form of experience, whether that be past or present. The songs on the new record are based on past experiences and dealing with deceit. I enjoy the way that I wrote the lyrics for the track ‘Twist of Fate’. The first verse is written about the past, but the second verse describes how that fate was changed for the better. It’s hard to explain, but I thought it was a good way to show that everything happens for a reason.
The opening track on this record is an intro track. I wanted something to set the mood for the rest of the record. It’s called ‘Absentia’ which is Latin for ‘absence’. I felt that this was a fitting title as the EP is ‘The Missing’. It’s quite a peaceful track and even has orchestral pieces in it. In my opinion, it certainly sets the tone and the mood for the rest of the record.
When do you hope to have it released? and where?
Originally, we hoped to have it released in June, 2012, but due to unforeseen circumstances, this didn’t happen. We’re now aiming to release it in August.
The release will be digital and will be worldwide. As with our 2 previous records, it can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon and many more.
Once we have the official release date ready, we will announce it on our official Facebook page.
Thanks to Serotonin for the interview and good luck.

Postcards from the Deathbed….talks.

Andrew Gemkow, his solo project is called, “Postcards from the Deathbed.” If you check out all the places on the web to find him you realize that one style of music is not in his vocabulary. Alternative, R&B, Rock, Folk, he has a wide variety of sounds out there, and all of it is great stuff.

His own Bio on ReverbNations says,
“Postcards from the Deathbed is the story of a man who has chosen to hide in plain sight through his use of music to make sense of the world around him and the events of his life that he cannot possibly understand. The purpose of all of this is to allow the truth to flow out though the vehicle of sound; the wording is carefully chosen to protect all who exist within the spaces of these electrons that bind us all as one existence. As the memories slip from the failing mind of an old man in his fate, these postcards may well serve to remind him of memories lost within the chaos of passing time.

The multiple sketches and refinements as they are released here are with the intent to show the evolution of understanding and acceptance of the self and the impact others have had upon his very being. These creations are a shelter within the soul from the storm that rages within the mind. This is me.”

We asked a few questions,
What or who inspired you?
Coming from a family of musicians, they have always been an exceptional source of inspiration to me. My great grandpa Rudy could play anything he heard on the concertina. My uncle Bob played drums in a wedding band. However, my greatest inspiration came from my uncle Ed. Shortly after I began learning violin, he had me stand up on a side table and play the first three songs I ever learned. When I finished, he gave me a dollar, saying, “Now you are a paid professional. It’s up to you to go as far as you want because you can be the best if you work at it.” I keep this in mind whenever I play music for someone else.

What instruments do you play and who manufactured them?
I play any stringed instrument. The physics of a vibrating string has fascinated me since my time studying with Nelle Meintz. She taught me harmonics. Later, when I learned to regulate pedal harps at Lyon and Healy, Peter Wiley introduced me to the bible of tonal physics by Hermann Helmholtz titled, ‘On the Sensation of Tone’.

The instruments I own have been carefully selected for their tonal characteristics and playability within the capabilities of my hands. Let’s just say that it’s unlikely I will ever buy an instrument off the internet.

I play a 2006 Fender Jaguar Bass that I have customized to suit my playing techniques. For example, I played about 30 different jag basses at the time before I selected the one that sounded and played best. It is strung with Thomastick flatwound strings and has a Hipshot D-tuner. I removed the pickguard and custom shaped a rosewood coverplate for the electronics pocket and added a thumb block to accommodate my right hand technique. Everything else is stock.

My guitar is a walnut 1979 Gibson SG. It was a factory “second” from the Norlin era that has had much work done to it over the years by Kagan and Gaines in Chicago and Northwest guitars. After a complete restoration in 2008, I stripped the original body finish to the natural wood and applied a hand-rubbed linseed oil finish. It has the stock “tarback” or T-top pick-up in the bridge and the stock “super humbucker” pickup in the bridge; split series/phase/parallel. Everything is stock except for a bison bone nut.

There are other instruments in the rack, but these two instruments define my sound.

What do you listen too?
My musical taste is eclectic. I listen to all forms of music. My preference is toward music that is innovative and isn’t an emulation of previous artists. “Sound-alikes” bore me. I do enjoy the recognition of an artist’s influences in their compositions; so long as their own style and personality is dominant in their sound.

I also listen intently to what other people are saying. Without this fundamental base in communication, the intent in my own compositions holds no merit.

What makes you happy? sad?

It took me a bit to think about this question. I’m pretty happy most of the time. When I’m not, it usually leads to 3am writing sessions until I can sleep again. It’s the only way that I know how to at least be completely truthful to myself. As long as I have truth, I have happiness. This doesn’t necessarily exclude sorrow, remorse or joy. Truth just happens to be the justification for experiencing all other emotions I feel.

Sadness has come from innumerable directions in my life. It is not an emotion I dwell upon for fear of becoming awash in its consumption. It’s emptiness is the very thing I avoid at all costs. It will have its place in time in its lesser forms, but holds no shelter from the night when it rolls in like a fog. I choose happiness for its limitless reward when continually shared. Sadness brought me nothing but a quick fix, hopelessness and death in all its forms.

But, if one thing makes me sad, it is those who may walk through this life having never known they are alive.

oh… and White Sox fans in a ‘shakin’ my head’ kinda way. Only because they suck so bad at being fans. That’s right, you 35th st. mutts. I said it

We would like to thank Andrew for talking with us and wish him the best of luck.

Steampunk Group from the UK……BB BlackDog, talks.

This group has listed itself as Alternative/Psychedelic/Stoner/SteamPunk as well as Progressive/Rock, what you can say about them is they have a style that is fun and innovative. Dale Rowles was kind enough to give me a little information about the group.

How did you get started, little history bio basically?

Well, not an easy question really, BB BlackDog formed completely by Accident, as with most things that happen to us, I was selling musical instruments for a living, and met a Guitar
builder (Stefan Becker) at a party in Germany, he had been given some studio time by a friend for his Birthday, and said it would be funny to try and make some songs, with just 2
bass and drums, so we found a session drummer, wrote 6 songs in 3 days and recorded them in 2, I thought nothing more of it, until a phone call from Germany, saying they had been
put on the net, people loved them, and we’d better find a Full time Drummer and record more, so Enter “Axel Boldt” (Chief Engineear Axel Boldt) 6’9″ giant of a German Drummer.
We went back to the studio, recorded 2 Albums worth of Material, and booked our first Tour, back in June 2007.
Stefan Left due to other commitments in 2010, replaced By John Ferguson (Baron von Gimphausen). Plus Myself Dale Rowles on the higher bass and vocals.

What or who inspired you?
At the moment the Steampunk Community, We never actually set out to be anything, just write and play songs we like, but were adopted by the steampunk community, mostly after John joined, due to our stage outfits, but since then, we’ve embraced it fully, as it just suits us perfectly. Must be said that without Jack Bruce, Geezer Butler, Geddy Lee, and Chris Squire I wouldn’t have been a bass player.

What instruments do you play and who manufactured them?
We’ve 2 full sets of Kit, but got everything down to a little over 2 flight cases each.
John Plays a Custom Built 5 String Beckergittarrenbau Bass, or a 5 string Stingray Bass we’ve fiddled with a bit.
Axel Plays a Custom Yamaha Drum Kit in Sparkly pink, or a Kit he built himself from Ikea Plant pots !
I play a Rickenbacker 4001, Bass from 1974, without a neck pickup and extended to 24 frets with a crybaby wha and boss blues driver, or a custom built Beckergittarrenbau 4 string bass with built in overdrive and a crybaby wha, Honer Marine Band Harmonica and an AKG D5 Mike.
We also get a bose L1 and 4 B1’s plus a mixer and mikes etc in the 2 box’s, so self contained in 2 flight cases including drums.

What do you listen too?
Quite varied, Axel like’s funk, Prince, grand master Flash and the like, as well as metal and rock, John is a big Pink Floyd and Jazz fan, but he’s very knowledgeable across the board, As for my influences, I grew up in the 70’s so progressed from T Rex and Bowie into Black Sabbath, and Deep purple, the psychedelic Rock scene, then Punk, but I’m quite varied in my listening now, I suppose it all comes through.

What makes you happy? sad?
My Girlfriend would say its whether Derby county win or not, but I think apart from the clichés its when I’m playing that I’m happiest, there’s a lot things I see in this world I’m sad about, but I try and only think about the ones I can do something about, the rest I probably moan about in songs.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
What’s that ?

If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
Pretty much doing it. like to be playing and writing more, but its a reality booking, promo, web sites, labels and the like take more of my time, we’ve a lot of help from some great friends and fans now, but it’s still a full time job organising everything.

Anything else you think people don’t already know about you that you want to share?
We’re 2 bass players, and a drummer, 2 English and a German, with a love of the Steampunk style and philosophy, just trying to make some original honest music, what you get on the recordings is what you get live, we don’t overdub, use click tracks, or Auto tune, just mike everything up and play, of course there’s delay and reverb etc on the recordings, as well as being mixed and mastered but nothing we can’t do live simply and quickly.
3 Simple Men playing simple and hopefully entertaining/humorous music. (we do have dancers, of Burlesque and belly dance in nature, with us at many of our shows, but nothing to graphic, just suggestive, we are Steampunks after all ! )

Have you got another album in the works and/or music videos?
We’ve already recorded the Next Album, artwork on the way, this one is with a 24 page comic book featuring the Band, hopefully out in March.
Actually made a few Music Video’s, latest of which is at, always have a lot of fun, most of them directed and edited at least by Mika Reshoft, our friend from Germany
http://blip.tv/bbblackdog/what-you-need-by-bb-blackdog-5842160
We’ve also made a full feature film “Steal the show” out on DVD with a couple of live concerts as bonus.

Could you tell me a little about your manager and label.
Well, we manage ourselves.
We’ve our own label “Whitedog records” and our own webshop “www.steampunkrecords.com
While I’m doing the cheeky plugs, www.bbblackdog.eu and www.facebook.com/bbblackdog for Gigs and info
Thanks a Lot, its appreciated, Cheers Dale Rowles.

You can also find them at MySpace and YouTube.
And Thank you Dale.


Dream Aria……exciting and awesome from Canada.


Dream Aria made received “Top Band of the Year” from MySpace recently, and with the vibe they send out it’s not surprising. I just recently sat down and listened to their latest album “Fallen Angel” and indeed I was blown away. They are listed as Rock/Progressive/World Music/Alternative
I got the chance to ask Ann a little bit about the band and here is what he shared.

How did you get started, little history bio basically?
Don Stagg (composer/keyboardist/executive producer) started the project in 2003 I believe and I joined the band in April of 2004. Don found me on the internet as a “singer for hire”. I feel very blessed that he contacted me! He was already working with Garry Flint (drummer/engineer/producer) on a number of songs. They had me come in to have a listen and I loved what I heard. I did an audition of sorts and started writing and recording with them that very day. The rest is history! The music started out more classical and evolved to progressive rock with elements of new age, ambient, goth and world music. Don had also hired Jozef Pilasanovic on guitar and Garry was writing and recording bass and drum parts. Our first cd was “In The Wake” as this lineup. For our second cd “Transcend”, we hired new guitarists: Steve Agelakos, Kurt Schefter, Mark Crossley and Tim Welch. We then brought bassist Jon Casselman on board for bass. Lonnie Glass played bass on the song “Compassion” and Alberto Suarez played congas on the same tune. “Transcend” was a bit ‘heavier’ and more of a ‘focused’ sound that truly became our own. “Fallen Angel”, our newest release, is a bit heavier than the others but remained our signature sound. We added even more guitarists to our ‘all-star’ lineup. Kurt and Tim played on quite a few tracks and we also hired Mark Crossley, Rob Masiokas for the song “The Gift”, Mike Phelps on “Abstract Relations”and Mark McClay on “Carnival of Souls”. Dream Aria would not be the same without any of the members of the band. They are all integral creative forces. Their professionalism and awesome personalities add so much to the mix!

What or who inspired you?
Personally, I have many inspirations. Life lessons, artists, animals, dancers, singers and all musicians and music in general! I grew up listening to classical music, then Crystal Gayle, Abba, as well as many of the rock to hard rock bands of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Some of my favorites were Toto, Deep Purple, Streetheart and the Scorpions. I also listened to some New Age including Andreas Vollenweider. As for the rest of the band, I know some of the musical influences are Peter Gabriel, Old Genesis, Debussy, The Beatles, Progressive Rock and more.

What instruments do you play and who manufactured them?
As a singer, I only use a mic, whatever is handy in the studio. I don’t pay attention to the make or model etc. I just sing and let Garry do the engineering.
{Don Stagg keyboard player uses Korg Karma/Roland Fantom/Yamaha Motif}

What do you listen to?
I listen to the bands I listed in question #2. Currently I also listen to Chris Botti, DcTalk, Queen City Kids, Kansas and an ecclectic mix of many others depending on my mood.

What makes you happy? sad?
Many things make me happy, such as good company, great food, all kinds of music (listening to and creating), art (viewing and creating it), dance (watching and also dancing myself), people who overcome obstacles, my family, all animals (especially dogs), learning new things, helping others, inspiring others, warm sunny days, traveling, exploring, reading thrillers and inspirational books, watching good movies, flowers, chocolate, tea and so on! What makes me sad is any kind of abuse towards people, animals and the earth.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Many of the things I listed in question #5, but most of all, spending time with my beautiful angel daughter, my family and my dog.

If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
Have enough money to help everyone who needs it and to inspire and help others as much as possible.

Anything else you think people don’t already know about you that you want to share?
I’m a little ‘firecracker’ but would never hurt a fly!

Thanks again to Ann for taking the time to talk to us.


Broken Tongues……Denver Group with flair.

Floating around the Denver scene I came across this fun group.They list themselves as Alternative/Hip Hop/Jazz/Funk/Progressive.
Their new album Crooked Skyline is available from their website, but I asked them to give me a moment of their time to introduce you to them.

How did you get started, little history bio basically?
Greensleeves: Greensleeves and Zach are brothers who formed the band in 2007 right before they moved back to Denver, Colorado from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Their previous band was breaking up and the brothers decided to take the opportunity to move in a new creative direction. Then in 2008, Loose Change and Greensleeves, both Smoky Hill High grads, met through mutual friends and shared common interests in music. Greens was an engineer at CCM Studios and Loose Change came in to record an initial version of a song he’d just written called “Sunrises” (a current version is on “Crooked Skyline”). The two really vibed so Greensleeves proposed having LC join the group. The three began writing and performing around Denver, but after a couple of shows in early 2009, the three of them realized that they needed to add live instruments to take it to the next level. So they took out some craigslist adds in the Denver area seeking Bass and Drums. Both, Erin and Donny responded and auditioned. The rhythm section, with Zach on guitar, Erin on bass and Donny on drums, formed a nice pocket while Greens and LC scratched and rhymed over vamps. We knew we had something going so the five of us started jamming together regularly. Meanwhile, CC and Zach were working together downtown for a media/music/production firm. They too saw common ground in their musical interests and goals, so Zach invited CC to audition. She killed it and we added her shortly thereafter. Thus, six members. We’ve now been together as a six-piece for just under two years and we just released our debut album titled, Crooked Skyline, which was engineered by Greensleeves at CCM Studios. Be sure to give it a listen, it’s very dynamic and unique. We are very proud of it.

What or who inspired you?
Greens: I would say that we are inspired by lots of things in general, whether it be an emotion that needs appreciation, a situation that deserves attention or just about anything that’s relevant and provokes interesting thoughts. As six members our musical interests and motivations certainly differ, yet keeping an open mind to anything I think is what really helps us find new paths and approaches to song-writing and performing and being people. That’s why we love live-hip-hop as the nucleus of it all, bc it allows us to explore and mix anything we want. I also try to make it a point to find inspiration and motivation in things that are otherwise disagreeable to my opinion of that thing. Whether it be a song or artist I don’t necessarily care for or a crappy weather-day, I think it’s more about being aware of the inspiration that’s always present than dictating where it is and isn’t. I seem to get a lot of random, yet good ideas while doing manual labor too… so does that make it mindless, or mindful work then? haha

Loose Change: My inspirations are very rooted in hiphop culture from the bboys to the graffiti writers. Being friends with some of the best around (RTD, DF Crew, ATT) only makes me want to excel in my area. I’d like to think my style is a melting pot. Inspiration is so hard to pinpoint it could be listening to music and having a great idea or it could be dunking your fries in some ketchup and something just happens to pop up. Everything and nothing is inspiration. I tend to like looking for the dark irony in situations, ’cause, tell ya the truth, I usually like to use the sadness or doubt I might have to express how I feel.

What instruments do you play and who manufactured them?
Loose Change: MC
Greensleeves: MC, Turntables (Technics 1210s & Pioneer DJM 400, Serato), MPD 32 (Akai digital sampler w/ Reason), Macbook Pro, Percussion (shakers, etc)
Christie “CC” Chambers: Vocals, Percussion (djembe, shakers and tambourine)
Zach Warkentin: Guitar (PRS McCarty hard-tail, Vox Tonelab SE, Fender Deluxe amp/speaker)
Erin Angel: Bass, Keys (Fender Jazz Bass, M-Audio Axiom 49 with a Macbook Pro and Logic Mainstage)
Donny Broussard: Drums (Pacific Drums)

What do you listen too?
Greens: Well, we listen to a lot of things! My brother and I grew up on classic rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop, rap, old soul and RnB, metal, comedy albums and everything in between. Remember the Adam Sandler albums? Or when Metallica made great music? Classics! CC grew up on the rock n roll, folk and jam bands,Donny grew up on Bourbon Street, so he’s got that cajun in him, and Ian’s always had a pension for lyrical MCs and hip-hop culture. Personally, I’ve been getting into a lot of the collage-artists and dub-step lately like Bass Nectar, Bonobo, Wax Tailor and Pretty Lights, while I’ve always admired artists like Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, EWF, George Clinton and P Funk, The Roots, John Scofield, Beastie Boys, Atmosphere and the whole Rhymesayers crew, Quannum Projects crew like Blackalicious and Latyrx, Common, RJD2, Beck, J5 and Ozomatli, Cut Chemist, DJ Shadow, Greyboy, Kid Koala, QBert, BK-One… I also really get down to that 90s hip-hop like Big-L, Wu-Tang, Tribe, Lost Boys, Brand Nubian and De La Soul… the list could go on for a while. Hell, as an audio engineer I have country clients, tejano bands and gangster rappers too! We all love music and I think there’s appealing qualities in any of its forms. So long as there’s soul in it, I suppose. I also listen to a lot of KUVO and enjoy the big bands, jazz, and afro-cuban styles. My brother Zach certainly listens to a lot of that and Im sure he’d throw out a few names like Wes Montgomery, Brad Mehldau, Rafael Sadiq, Roy Hargrove, Coltrane and Miles, as well as Mars Volta, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, etc.

LC: As far as certain artists go I would say people like brother Ali, buck 65, living legends, visionaries, I’m really in to that northwest style like sand people, classified, sweatshop union just to name a few. I love the innovators like Wu-tang, or tribe and de la soul there are so many I could write a full page. People always say I like everything when speaking about genres of music. Well I don’t. I can’t stand country music. I also have a strong dislike for techno or house. It’s weird but I got a strange love for 80’s music, maybe because it was primarily up beat even when the content was not.

What makes you happy? or sad?
Successful performances and making awesome music makes us happy while loading and unloading gear makes us sad…

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Greens: I like just being active in life. I hate being stagnant and inactive. I need to be doing something whether it be a project or just a leisure sport. I love snowboarding and volleyball, drinking good beer, working on musical side-projects and practicing instruments. Smoke ‘n a pancake, bowling, air hockey, bocci ball and corn hole make for entertaining drinking w friends…

LC: In my spare time I love to keep active play bball, hit The gym, write pretty much whatever makes me happy besides making music.

If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
Greens: Have a lengthy career making music! No delusions of grandeur or fame, just money to live and do what I do best. I’d also love to tour the world and play sold out shows to people with different native languages. Like, being really popular in obscure countries. That’d be pretty rad.

LC: If I could do anything I want it would most likely be traveling around the world playing music, also owning a clothing store (community service apparel). I would love to have multiple stores all over the country and the world to spread a vision my partners and I have been working very hard on.

Anything else you think people don’t already know about you that you want to share?
Our new album, Crooked Skyline, is ON SALE NOW at our website (www.BrokenTongues.com) and it’s the best live-hip-hop since the Roots! Also, Erin Angel and Greensleeves have a music side-project under the name PRESTOdigitist. We have 3 new eps coming out in the spring of 2012 featuring all sorts of styles ranging from Pretty Lights and RJD2, to Lady Gaga (the good shit) and Jay-Z. We also lease and sell exclusive beats and instrumentals regularly in pretty much any genre.

Also, Loose Change owns a really dope boutique clothing store in Denver, off Broadway, called Community Service Apparel. They offer limited edition clothing and great deals on urban gear other stores will not have. Links to all are below. Oh yea, and we have really good night vision and acute hearing.
