General Discussion / Re: THE AG ALBUM Project

Word!
Time for some real talk.

March came and is about gone. Unfortunately over the past month we didnt get the influx of new material that was much needed to propel the project foward. Therefore I have to sadly announce that the project was a fail.  :(

All in all we had 6 Track entries. (The instrumental version of the project might be a cla**ic though  8) )

I personally no longer have that much time to invest in the project. The idea was great but it seems that it was a little too late as the traffic here is practically dead.

Nevertheless there's a bright side because the few entries that we did get were all of good to great quality. The networking was great. Also I made new connections and I hope to collaborate with you on some level in the future.

Special Shoutout to: Trompie, Rushay, Naturelle, San, Syklik, Tang, Zeb, JD, BC, Madei, Ekks & everyone else involved in the prroject and/or discussion.

All the best AG.

the idea was indeed a noble and benevolent one, the unfortunate thing is that its often misconstrued and discounted the amount of work that actually goes into producing an album, especially if its one that comprises of various artists stationed from around the world.

to be brutally honest, not that much organisation went into the album creation, it was much easier to speak on "wanting to make an album" than it was to actually a**ign tasks and responsibility to people in order to ensure its materialisation and accountability. at the end of the day, the blame lands squarely on the shoulders of the one person, who in fact initiated the idea. thats not a goodlook and it never helps progress let alone motivation moving forward.

in light of this, like Fahfee has said above, the idea was not a complete failure, since it shone light on the realities; it is always a plus when you know who you can rely on when you need things done and who you need to cut off immediatly they open their mouth because they never deliver on shit...!

Not Easy At All

The Holstar and Poison Hertz Present Universal Language; a 10 track project that is a collaborative effort a few years in the making.

Poison Hertz and The Holstar first met on myspace in 2008 and did a few songs together including the cla**ic “Take Us There” featuring Dope G.

Hip Hop is their “Universal Language” as The Holstar from Zambia and Poison Hertz from Argentina use google translator to communicate but the music making process doesn’t need any translation.

Official Release Date: Friday April 26th 2013

Calling All Zimbabwe/Zambia based Emcees and Singers:- Slam Dunk Records TV of Zambia and Da Grapevine TV of Zimbabwe bring to you the UNWTO 2013 Mixtape. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. In August this year both countries will jointly be hosting the general a**embly.
Slam Dunk Records TV and Da Grapevine TV saw it fit to share with the rest of the world our culture through music, tackling various topics and vices in both societies. This Mixtape will be the first of its kind and will serve as an outlet for Zambian and Zimbabwean youth to voice their opinions and stories of today’s happenings.

The a**embly will have up to 4 000 participants that are expected to attend from the 180 member countries, making this one of the most prestigious events of the year. Zambia and Zimbabwe both have a rich history and share a world heritage site, namely the Victoria Falls which is the biggest waterfalls in the world. This will be a great opportunity not only for tourists to experience the sites but also the versatile and diverse sounds that exist in both lands.

If you would like to submit your music for consideration email:- unwtomixtape@gmail.com before June 30th 2013. We will also be uploading beats from participating producers. Be creative, talk about your surroundings and your reality, try and fuse in different elements such as local instruments and dialect where you can. We would also like to encourage collaborations between Zambians and Zimbabweans through this project.

Regards
