DJ GAL-VanIZed We Are I.E. Remix ft. Ahman

Galvanized.Kontrol

They say multi-tasking kills creativity but in this case, listening to two types of audio generated an idea for jungle beats mixed with a Sunday sermon. This Lenny De Ice track, (We are I.E.) is mixed with sound snippets from a rousing sermon by Ahman titled Mental Fast. It will give you permission to question religious practices that manipulate and limit the mind of a spiritual seeker.

Unorthodox by Wretch 32 ft. Example on DJ GAL-VanIZed Jukebox

Be unorthodox.

Unorthodox lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Yeah
I gotta good heart
I born on beat that’s a good start
I had a feeling I’ll pass push pass
So now I feel like I’m the reason I should last
I move like my ish don’t stink
Gotta em all in a trance no hypnosis
This is all from the heart impro no script (yeah)
I’m just about writing it down
So now I don’t sleep man I miss those nights
Take planes like trains I don’t miss no flights
I’m the type of guy that would have no life
Just so I could shine like disco lights
And I sound sad but I’m happy
And the only plans to stay scatty
Unorthodox I make the bar so I call the shots

[Chorus]
We don’t follow no crowd
They follow us
Don’t follow no sound
It follows us
Don’t sit in hell
Look down that wishing well
Unorthodox we call our own shots

[Verse 2]
Yeah
I gotta good vibe
I ain’t trying to be bait with my hook lines
I had a feeling could fly
Before I hopped on a plane or I knew sky
Yeah
I’m a good guy and if you heard otherwise its a true lie
I’m hype I don’t do shy
I bark up every tree and I do bite (hahaha)
Yeah
I’m only playing
We all got freedom of speech
I’m only saying
I ain’t got time for beef I’m on the way in
So the 8th day of the weeks my only lay in
And I sound sad but I’m happy
And the only plans to stay scatty
Unorthodox I make the bar so I call the shots

[Chorus 2]
We don’t follow no crowd
They follow us
Don’t follow no sound
It follows us
Don’t sit in hell
Look down that wishing well
Unorthodox we call our own shots

[Bridge]
No one can hold us down again
No one will touch our crown again
No one can hold us down again (no way)
No one will touch our crown again

[Outro]
We don’t follow no crowd (no way)
They follow us
Don’t follow no sound
It follows us
Don’t sit in hell
Look down that wishing well
Unorthodox we call our own shots
We don’t follow no crowd
They follow us
Don’t follow no sound
It follows us
Don’t sit in hell
Look down that wishing well
Unorthodox we call our own shots
No one can hold us down again
No one will touch our crown again
No one can hold us down again (no way)
No one will touch our crown again

Between Music & Medicine: Robert Gupta TED Talk

Join Robert Gupta as he discusses the power of music to heal various mental conditions including Alzheimer’s and PTSD. When considering his career choices, he wasn’t sure if he should become an M.D. or a musician. Ultimately it was his work the mentally ill that helped him realize that music is medicine.

Robert Gupta played music with Nathaniel Ayers on Skid Row. You may remember the story as told through the movie The Soloist starring Jamie Foxx. What came out of this experience was the founding of an organization called Street Symphony that helps other homeless people on Skid Row to find healing and sanity through playing and listening to music.

Fight Riff by EULA on DJ GAL-VaniZed Jukebox

This week’s GALVaniZed Jukebox song is Fight Riff by EULA. Singer Elyse exudes an artistic flair with punk rock edge. It’s a fun song with a strong beat and great to have on my iPod and listen to while I’m out for a walk. See the YouTube video here.

I like DIY feel of the video, reminiscent of the Clash and other artists from London who used the desert or an industrial wasteland as their set.
