Happy New Year comrades! We hope that yours was a safe one, spent with good friends and family, amazing food, strong liquor, and just the right music.
As another page turns, it's natural to reflect. There can be no denying that 2008 was a year of deep transformation. From electing our first Black president, to watching the economy collapse in slow motion, nothing seems shocking or impossible anymore. Let's hope that 2009 brings the kind of change we can stand behind.
At Asita Headquarters we have been hard at work on a whole host of new endeavors including a brand new web site and digital distribution for all of our releases, both new and old. On the music front Joe has been working tirelessly on the Contra Band - PRAISE DIRT album, which I can say with certainty, will not disappoint. 2009 is the year for less talk and more action, so I'll let the album speak for itself, when it hits shelves in the early part of this year.
To those who have just tuned in, and to those who have stuck with us through the years; our family and friends, THANK YOU, for all of your support! Your presence define the good days and make the bad days tolerable. We promise big things are on the horizon, in this electronic world, and beyond.
Here is a taste of some of what we've been cooking up in the studio...
Check out the brand new Joe and Mestizo exclusive up on the Asita Myspace
page. Not sure of the title, though I've been calling it "808," listen to it, and see why! Song appears on Mestizo's
new tour cd.
