Fallout Shelter Elevator Music Volume 1: Bassment Level Review

Hey all, the BASSment Level got a review blurbie on the I Can’t Call it Blogsite

“I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don’t do things half-heartedly. Because if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.”-Michael Jordan

The Fallout Shelters latest efforts (helmed by super-producer & MC Dynamics Plus, along with multiple personalities Domino Grey, Drew Spence, and Xodus Phoenix) is the realization of a dream being reached, a path that puzzled many fans of the producers former hip-hop efforts. However, with any adversity, great opportunity can come out of it.

Elevator Music Volume 1: Bassment Level is the “soundtrack to a new film” in the Dynamic Plus universe (not an actual film, but more of a collection of valuable music in his already immense catalog). Overall, the growth he continues to display as a producer is earning him the acclaim of being the name used as a standard for producers of all genres to follow. On top of this all, he’s just scratching the surface.

 

Don’t know what they’re talking about? Peep this.

Behind the Take Ova Shea the Doll and Nae B The Take Over Mixtape

Download Shea the Doll Nae B The Take Over album

The Take Over is taking over.

“This is an anthem for all the women who have decided to say ‘Enough, no more’. They are sharing the deepest aspects of their lives and I doubt anyone will listen to this and not be moved.”

Shea the Doll and Nae B drop a powerful mixtape that may change your life.

I don’t even know is I should be sharing this, but meh, let’s see where this goes. For the last couple of weeks I have been locked away in the lower levels of the Fallout Shelter recording Shea the Doll and Nae B. They are solo R&B recording artists putting together a free mixtape called The Take Over. Normally this would be no big deal since I record all sorts of projects, but things quickly took a left turn.

Well, let’s go back a bit. Shea, who I’ve known for many years, is no stranger to hear me doin my thang. She was featured on the Album Doctor Atomics and the Fortress of Solitude “Machine Slave” and my most recent Domino Grey music. Now, years later, it was time for me to sit back and watch her do her thang. She’s always had a powerful voice and most people describe it as raw and emotive. I kept hearing how ill Nae B was for a while, but never met her until now. They are both solo song writers/artists who have come together for this first project. They usually sell songs to other artists and have done tons of spot work singing and writing hooks for rap songs, but now they’ve decided to make their own music and take it to the world.

Shea the Doll and Nae B

Strong Women, Strong Voices, Strong Message

There are a few times I spun around at the desk and asked “Do you really want to say that?” Oh yeah, it gets pretty raw. This is an anthem for all the women who have decided to say ‘Enough, no more’. They are sharing the deepest aspects of their lives and I doubt anyone will listen to this and not be moved. When we were near the end, Shea asked me “What do you think?” I answered; “This is going to change things”. She said “No, what do you think of the songs.” I replied “I just told you.”

I take no credit in the creation of this project. They came, they saw, they recorded their vision. All I did was donate my facility and time, to which, they said was a rare act of…

Hold on. What are we all here for? How can you not want to be involved with this kind of music? Do you say you love good music? Are you haunted by shadows from your past? Are you working your way through a world of struggles? Do you have hope and faith that you can make it through? Are you going to look at yourself and say that it’s time for a change? New Years is fast-approaching and that will be time when all of us reflect and decide to make personal changes in how we move about in the world. I suggest you turn it into more than a night of personal promises and vows. I say you commit to Take Over your life and use this album as your inspiration.

Syntax 3: My Syntax Runs Tracks Across Your Veins

Syntax 3, a lost joint from the archives
I found this piece while digging through one of my folders. Kinda liked it, thought I’d share it. There’s a spot for a second verse that even had ad-libs recorded in place so I know this is some kind of unfinished track, but since I hate adding on way after the initial inspiration, I’ve chosen to leave it at 1 verse.

Dynamics Plus presents the Falling Planets Soundtrack

Falling Planets, the Soundtrack

This is man’s first step into the larger universe.

 

 Our warp drive will open a new frontier.

This is man’s first step into the larger universe.

We will stumble over our humanity.

 

Falling Planets is the soundtrack inspired by the Graphic Novel.

 

 

I spend most of my time hunched over something; it’s either my computer or synthesizer keyboard. When I think about it, it was always this way. – Hidden away in my room drawing up adventure stories about heroic characters from far off worlds. Come to think of it, my music tends to follow that theme too. It makes sense since I used to play music while I drew my comics. The idea hit me to use my music as a soundtrack to a graphic novel. So, you are supposed to read the book while the music plays in the background. That’s the experience I was trying to create.

I actually sat on this comic for a long time. Every so often I would get the urge to read it again and remember how different the graphics were or put the soundtrack on while I worked. It just struck me to put it out, yeah and drop the soundtrack too. While looking for the original files, I stumbled across a video version of the novel with the soundtrack behind it and decided to upload that too.

Story Synopsis:

A team is sent discover the fate of Earth’s first unmanned, warp-drive capable, space probe. They will discover their own humanity… and also be discovered!

10 Types of posts I don’t want to see on Facebook anymore

November 18, 2011 Leave a comment

10 Types of posts I don’t want to see on Facebook anymore

Failure to Communicate

We’re all on Facebook, but for many different reasons. Some are here to Socially Network and meet new people with similar interests. Some just want to pass the time. Some want to catch up with or reconnect with old friends. Some want to push their business and find new customers and increase their brand awareness. Yeah so…this weird mix of purposes and profiles has lead to a  few reoccurring themes I’m tired of seeing.

1. Get Money … We don’t need someone on they hustle or grind reminding us of their greed. Show us you got money by spending it on something meaningful to us. Constantly talking about money doesn’t convince anyone that you have money, a better plan to get money or that you’re about to get some more. And since you aint spending it on me, I must admit, I don’t really care.

2. Things that are likely to change soon- like Dating Status Updates. I know, I know. You’re rubbing it in the face of your ex (or current) that ‘Thangs done changed’. Well, those of us that know you know what your real status is and those that don’t have the same odds as they did before. All it says is that you’re fighting. Don’t do it. You’ll look silly a day later when you change it back.

3. The “I’m single and lonely” post also known as ‘Hot chick is having an ugly day and needs some flattery to boost her self esteem.” This one usually comes from gurlz lamenting that they can’t find anyone. Meanwhile they’ve got 4,998 friends and at least 347 guys salivating over their every post/pic. Oh I remember, you’re looking for a sensitive, caring man who will love you always. Maybe you should consider that guy who talks to you everyday and ignore the 4,997 horn-dogs who friended you after you uploaded that Cleavage-heavy Profile Pic. I’m just saying.

4. Thank you God for giving me crap. I remember reading in the bible about how the rich and shallow people would pray. They would speak very loud and thank the Lord for every single worldly possession they own. “Thank you Lawd for making me one of the rich ones”. It doesn’t bring glory or attention to God. It’s prideful boasting.

5. I’m going to dump some friends. All this tells us is- you are unhappy about the amount of attention your posts get so you are threatening your ‘friends’ into action. Stop using your main profile as a fan page. Speaking of which…

6. To my Fans: What?! So okay, you friended me and you are comin at me like I’m a fan? What’s on your wall worthy of making me a fan again? These are the same people who never read other people’s posts, check their links and expect all kinds of support for their hustle. These types are prone to post 1s, 4s and 5s from above. Consider me a fan when I click the Like Button on your FAN PAGE.

7. Half a conversation and cryptic posts. “I know, but maybe they’ll call you.” What do you know?  Who are they? Call about what? C’mon, do that in an IM or explain everything to us. Damn, aint we supposed to be friends? I also hate reading half an argument. At least tell us who you’re fighting with so we can friend them too and see the other half.

8. If you don’t repost this…WTF? Is this a Chain Letter? Like little puppies in [insert far away and foreign-sounding country] will be tortured if I don’t repost your daily concern. “Grandma has gout. We need to rally against gout. I know most of you don’t have the courage to…” And you just insulted me. Thanks.

9. Things you haven’t researched. “Oh no, Facebook added a new button to show all your credit card numbers?!!”  Thanks for warning me…um wait…where did you hear this from again?

10. Facebook sucks and any kind of complaining about facebook users or how it’s a waste of time or you got haters. De-friend people you don’t like or care about or Deactivate your account. Solved.

I think this is serious stuff and I bet most of you won’t repost this because you are all a bunch of…oh wait.
