“DAYLIGHT” Official Video|Goldfinger & The Butterfly (Electronic Soul)

You are now entering an alternate sound dimension.  Goldfinger & The Butterfly have taken over your soul.

Goldfinger aka Ray Angry (Grammy nominated piano virtuoso / producer) & The Butterfly aka Kendra Foster (Grammy winning singer/songwriter) have teamed up for a seductively tasty treat called “Daylight“.

When I first caught the teaser, the chorus literally echoed in my head for the day and was in my dream that night.  Kendra’s songwriting ability is remarkable to say the least.  Her ability to create memorable songs that are heartfelt and pure, makes her a rare breed in the sea of under talents.

Her voice is one of my favorites with it’s raspy soul, enunciating effortlessly.  It rides the enchanting Ray Angry production symbiotically.

Now the production is minimal, but so filling.  It’s just enough and don’t overstep it’s sonic boundaries.  I love how it’s mix/mastered, the rawness of the sound empowers it’s presence.

After the 2:40mark, the breakdown becomes glorious.  That’s Goldfinger all day, magical and unpredictable.

The landscape is captured in the official video as they share personal energies creatively and colorfully.  The textures have a spiritual undertone, as music is the conduit to alternate dimensions.

Get connected.

Doing what she does best, Kendra and Ray shining…

Goldfinger (Ray Angry) in a Jam session with legends and Master’s of the Craft.   Can you guess who?  If not, you need to study the art of music more.

Peep the connection and level you have to be at to sit in with such a group.

These aren’t microwave musicians, they are professional acoustic rule breakers that have dedicated their life’s time to master their instrument and learn the art of it.  They studied the greats in addition to those that didn’t confirm to music norms.

I mean, this is the type of music you’d want to absorb and learn from.  Then transfer it to sounds that you may produce, sing or compose.  Digesting shit, will give you diarrhea… digesting straberries will give you strawberry fields.  Now which one do you want?

  • Marinate on that… strawberry fields

The point of it all this is, Fuck With This Dopeness for it will raise your consciousness…

And that’s #thebrooklynword.

is steadily nodding her head to the beat.

Headphones on,

headphones off.

Ep.1 part 2

An intimate sound session with Kendra Foster & Maurice “MoBetta” Brown.

Kendra Foster

Singer w/ D’Angelo and the Vanguards + Songwriter on Black Messiah 

voice like butterflies dipped in lace effortlessly serenaded the crowd.  It was at that point that I began to melt.  I’m a tastemaker and music moves me, so I’m pretty picky on what I like and how I want it delivered to my ear.  Premium top shelf quality, no bottom shelf sounds.  If it’s a raw and untamed artist, I bypass the professional sound and focus on the level of passion delivered.  If a pro, then I do expect ‘almost perfection’ with a narrow margin for error.

Her voice is dope and feels good to the soul.  It moves the youth in you,

perfectly balancing its effect evenly among the diverse crowd.

Men and women nodded, in that soulful way that we head nod, to a melodic star.

Maurice “MoBetta” Brown

Grammy Award winning trumpet virtuoso + Producer

When I walked into the spot that night, it was hott.  Dope party hottt, sirens blaring hott.

MoBetta was on stage, trumpet in hand wailing along with the music.

Then swinging it away for quick breaths and the funkiest head nod,

you seen all day.  All of a sudden he started rhyming, spitting bars in between trumpet wails.

I love it, I miss this.  We don’t see guys like this enough.

See MoBetta is one of those trumpet players thats just gives

everything fuxking he got, in every note.

You feel the communication…

It’s that artistry that’s missed.

It’s that level of musicianship that is dying.

That level of dedication to where you are one with your craft’s weapon.

He is one with his trumpet and voice and production.

Let us all strive to these levels and higher.

Good music such this, musicians like this, singer like this, dj’s like this,

spirits lke this

must be preserved!

The Music Revolution Has Begun
