Solid album from the one and only Mestizo. What I always loved about Mestizo was his ability to be poetic with out being soft. Check some songs out on his myspace page.

After a 2 year hiatus, a core member of Galapagos4's West Coast operation, MESTIZO, is back with his official homecoming album. “Dream State” is MESTIZO's interpretation of his native land of California, which is a dream world in itself, filled with eccentric beings entranced in a dream state.

This album is entirely produced by the new super duo Julian Code, made up of Sean Julian (best known for the highly successful Psych Rock LP "Trap Door” on Groove Merchant Records) and DJ Morse Code, the San Francisco native better known for his club monster DJ status as part of the Super Friends crew. DJ Morse Code has also been caught DJing side by side with DJ AM, Steve Aoki, A-TRAK and The RUB DJ's to name a few, but here he is letting the world in on his gritty 12-bit SP-1200 production style.

MESTIZO has gained tremendous respect from his peers and elders alike as a passionate writer, amazing performer, and stern leader of the next generation of artist. Lyrically, MESTIZO teamed up with JOE DUB, ISAIAH, QWEL, 2MEX AND MURS and although, DREAM STATE is an album that needed no features, each individual that contributed to the album gladly added to its magnificence. Together they have created classic duets in honor of the golden state sound. MESTIZO embodies the true sound and style of a California heavy weight and is sure be a mogul to many and this album the future blueprint of how the West Coast Rocks.

New songs ft. Ghesol, Painkillers, and How Many Pt 2!

These are early unmastered copies, but the songs, will eventually appear on a project that we have planned for later this year.

Some background:
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The first one, features Hawaii and Human Amusement's own Ghesol, Shanon, and Joe Dub, with EVS on production. It's called "Night Mode," and I like to call it the "lightsleepers" song. It's basically about Honolulu nightlife.

The second song is a Painkillers, until now, unreleased album track called Thursday Service. It was produced by Alex 75 and features a rough reggae style beat and echoplex.

Last but not least is a sequel of sorts to the "How Many" posse cut song that Tommy V released on 7" in 2001. It features all of the la2thebay mainstays, including:

Amazing Archive of Blowed videos

Check out the homie Dzstereo's amazing collection of Westcoast underground You Tube (mostly Blowed, Westcoast Workforce, and Legends) when you get a chance. D and I have been trading tape and video footage since the mid - late 90's and I would say he has one of the nicest collections out there. At the risk of sounding old and overly nostalgic...those were the days!

I remember the Hawaii boys rolled out the 99 B-boy summit all wearing matching aloha shirts. Here is a short clip of the day the police started harassing people with rubber bullets and shotguns. See how many faces you recognize.

Project Blowed - 5 - NgaFish, Busdriver, PuzoozooWatt, PEACE

Now the world waits for him to rip the early 90's sessions at the Good Life Cafe.

If anyone knows how to rip VHS to computer please get at me. I have tons of stuff I 'd like to digitize and share.
