"The long overdue post from the most memorable day of my life..."

This is how the "Movement Music" works...
My Cousin Dugee F. summoned my presence at a recent studio session, that was inspiring for anyone who is into he world of the Arts. The amount of creative energy flowing through the room was surreal. Mr. Fairmont Heights was doing the Production thing on the iMac, Dugee was in the booth, and of course I was doing the graphic design thing on Photoshop CS4.!

This is the outcome of the creative 'aura' that was surging through the room.!
*based off of an original painting by Shaymar W. Higgs*

[back to movement music]...
This track will probably be the ONE track that I remember until the day that I get put into a Retirement Home. If I told you the story that goes with the track, you wouldn't believe it. Just know that a certain street officer with the PG County Police Department commented on how he enjoyed the song, and how it has a 'club feel.' So Thanks Mr. Officer for the extra blogging material.! We appreciate what you'll do.!

So without future ado, I present to you "Makin' Flips" by Dugee F. Buller.

Stay tuned for the link to listen in to our first radio show on IM4RadioDC.com's 'The Flow.'

Until Later.... [My Proof of Gods Existence] "I am a servant of the images and thoughts in my mind. There is only one person that could put such thoughts in my mind. That one person is God; therefore God must be real." --Shaymar W. Higgs (based on a recent read "Conversations With God" by Neale Donald Walsch)

Well deserved....

Your body deserves to just take a second sit back and listen to "Make Noise" by Maryland 'Movement' Artist, Shov....



Every time I hear the track I pick up different metaphors and in my mind puts me into Artists such as Beatles. Thus far in his journey of connecting everyone by their passions, Shov seems to sample and mix from all genres of the wide world of music.! I am sure I could speak for everyone here and with the team, we are definitely looking out for more.!
So for all of you music lovers, I am sure you enjoyed it the first time around. So just download it, and tell them Dude sent you.! [lol]. {DOWNLOAD LINK HERE}

Until Later...... "You only lose when you quit on yourself." -Mike V.

"You Should Already Know My Name...."


When I think of the new voices of DMV hip hop, or what the style of hip hop should be, I think of a couple of names... One of those guys that stand out in my mind just goes by the name: Shov. (http://eeshov.wordpress.com/)

His latest single, "Candle Eyes" was sampled from Massachucet's own Indie-Electric band, Passion Pit, and definitely shows the more chill, emotional side of the DMV artist. Don't just take my word for it, zone out to it yourself. [Click HERE]
Through a short email, Shov described his new concept that is pretty synonymous with that of Dude Skateboards:
"That first pic is like the explanation to this whole "Passion Knit" thing i'm doing with this song and songs that will soon be released. In a way its the cover art."
I am sure Shov would appreciate the love on Twitter and his Blog.!!!
Make sure to tell him DUDE Skateboards sent you.!!!


Until later........ "You can't change the wind; you can, however, adjust your sails" --Unknown



Here is an extra gift Fam... Shov's mixtape.!

"Skinny Jeans... Fitted Caps... Sick Beat..."

After my home boy Malcolm was dancing around on webcam to this song and then seeing my fellow hip-hop blogger, Elitaste, post the song on his blog, I figured we might as well blog about the video as well.! The New Kids.... Lets just say that they are LA's coolest scene-kids.!!!
For those of you who cannot dig the skinny jeans trend, look out for the next post.... For the rest of the world that is open-minded, enjoy "You're A Jerk" by The New Kids.!
