New Music Alert! Polish Ambassador – Gathering of the Tribes Remix

It’s been a while but it’s new music time! In response to the Polish Ambassador’s “Pushing Through the Pavement” remix contest, I’m proud to present the Lumagrove remix of “Gathering of the Tribes”! This one is a blend of hip hop and dub centered around a bouncy linear drum groove, and a low driving bass line mixed with a blend of syncopated stabs and samples from the original tune. Whether your feet want to move, or you’re just kicking back to put one up, throw it on some good speakers, turn it up and enjoy :)

 

Best Year Yet!

2014 was, without a doubt, the best year in Lumagrove history! Played 4x as many shows as last year and had so many dreams come true I can’t believe it: playing the Spirit of the Suwannee music park for Hulaween, being able to bring the music to 5 different states around the US on multiple tours, putting out my first live EP, playing with some of my biggest inspirations and best acts around including The Malah, Futexture, Moon Hooch, UV Hippo, ThazDope, and more! Plus pool side sets, silent discos, playing guerrilla-style at 5 am in geodesic domes, and meeting all of you beautiful people! The list could go on and on! Thank you all for already making this project a success! 2015 is looking to be transformative year for Lumagrove and I can’t wait for you all to join in. Love you all!

Spoiled Nation Tour up and running!

After the first stop last night in Tampa, things are already rolling! The visuals, the people, and that BASS! Next stop is Tallahassee to keep the party going with the ThazDope crew! Want to know if we’ll be in YOUR town, check the dates below and come boogie with us!

Suwannee Hulaween!

2014 Suwannee Hulaween

I can’t believe I get to type these words but I’ll finally be making my way to the Southeast’s premiere festival spot, Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park!! And not only that but it’s for possibly their biggest production to date, String Cheese Incident’s Suwannee Hulaween!!  7 sets of SCI, plus Big Gigantic, Thievery Corporation, the New Deal, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Shpongle, and more?! I’ve been going to festivals at SOSMP for years and had some of the best times of my life there and could not be more excited! I’ll be rocking a special PA set at 3am Halloween night right after the debut performance from LAVA on the Silent Disco stage. Thank you all for the love and support, I wouldn’t have made it this far without you!!  Things are gonna get spooky!

Hello world! After an inspiring and head-clearing Earthdance Florida, I’ve been busy gearing up for this November. First I’ll be joining Pass the Good Entertainment in Pensacola for a monumental event that I’m honored to be a part of. This year, Floridians will be voting on two state constitutional amendments that should and can be passed. Amendement 1 promotes funding for Florida’s wilderness and natural treasures like the beaches, Everglades, springs, and more through already implemented state taxes that will be reallocated toward this great cause. Amendement 2 provides qualified Floridians the choice for alternative health options through various forms of medical cannabis. This event will be held in support of both amendements on November 4th following the closing of the voting polls with results being played throughout the venue…how awesome is that?!

After a couple weeks rest, I’ll be hoping on the Spoiled Nation tour with ThazDope Records! I could not be more pumped to be joining these guys after the year they’ve been having. I’ll be hoping on the Southeast leg of the tour with stops in Miami, Tampa, Tallahassee, Mobile, Lafayette, and finishing in Pensacola at the picturesque campground/venue Hadji Shrine. I’ve got a ton of treats for you all that I can’t wait to share! So stoked to get back on the road to see you all! Much Love!!

Gearing up for Earthdance Florida

In a few short weeks Earthdance Florida kicks off in Lakeland, FL featuring Phutureprimative, Random Rab, Govinda, The Human Experience and some of Florida’s best bands including Applebutter Express, Lucky Costello, The Funky Nuggets, Greenhouse Lounge, and Cope.

I’ll be taking the Main Stage Thursday night at 7pm for a special sunset slot! I’ll also be doing a late-night DJ set in the C4 Dome Saturday night! This weekend is gonna be one for the books so grab your tickets now and be a part of this unique and  transformational event!

100% of “Human Being Being Human” proceeds going to Yes on 1

Have you had a chance to check out the new album “Human Being Being Human”?? If not, this might be a bit more incentive. Starting now until the voting on November 4th, 100% of the name-your-price proceeds from “Human Being Being Human” will be donated to Florida’s Water and Land Legacy in support of the “Yes on 1” campaign. This is the perfect way to get involved! This amendment will aid immensely in the conservation efforts of Florida’s best features including our fresh water, the Everglades, springs, shoreline, beaches, parks and more without raising any taxes (for all the info visit http://www.voteyeson1fl.org/). 

All you have to do is click the link below, put in the amount you’d like to pay for the album, hit submit, and it’ll get automatically donated to the campaign! You don’t even have to get off your couch to make a difference! So please share this around and tell your friends and let’s raise some money!

Operation Greenfire Fundraising Kick-off Event

Operation Greenfire Fundraising Kick-off Event

C4Collective are beyond excited to be hosting our first C4SociALL event in our local music community at 1904 Music Hall on July 10th. This will be a night of Music, Fashion, Art, and Dance featuring Herd Of Watts and a fashion show made of all upcycled material by Jamila Designs. It will also be a night and dance of Art featuring Cory Ponz and Brian Bernard and a hip-hop dance performance by a local dance school. More bands TBA!

Entry is on a sliding scale from $5-15. That is $5 to get in with an additional suggested $5-10 donation.

The main intention of this event is to raise funds to install a string of 5 permaculture gardens in the local communities. We are calling this initiative Operation Greenfire. Operation Greenfire is a direct-action initiative of C4Collective. Using the ethics and principles of Permaculture, the action plan is to install a string of 5 ecologically designed gardens at private residences in the low-income areas of Jacksonville. We will then use these 5 residential gardens as educational examples to spread the knowledge of growing your own food, gardening, and permaculture. We will continue to have a fund solely dedicated to installing these ecological gardens.
