SALUTE! ~4hero – A Few Remixes

Their original work is my future music, period.

Since the mid-1990s, I have been a dedicated fan since ‘Creating Patterns’ dropped.

Although from South-Central L.A., my grandmother and mother thankfully passed on a love of good music and such, no matter the origin…they seemed to focus a lot of the feelings and vibes that their music gave them.

“Tell your mind to Let your ears ‘hear’ “.

Omar at The Jazz Cafe (02 Jul 16)
Sat, Jul 2, 2016
The Jazz Cafe, 5 Parkway, Camden, NW1 7PG, London, UK

Omar has been my favorite musical artist since my UC San Diegocolleague and  friend, Everett Williams [RIP Triton] introduced me to Omar (Lye Fook)back in 1993 or was it 1994?

Well, what I am clear about is that I was an instant fan.  Along with Incognito of the non-Hip Hop (although he has a track with ODP from way, which I own happily.

My point is that my favorite musical artist of the Soul musical genre can not be boxed in nor replicated I have long felt.

I hope he hits L.A. again soon and frequently.

In my view, it took WAY too long to get him here and not frequently.

At this station in life I would love to see an Omar show, I would even to twoshows in one weekend.

I have has my CDs and the great performance at Zanzibar (now Dakota Lounge I think).

to hear and vibe off the feeling.

SALUTE! ~4hero = Decades of ‘Spiritual Electronica’

Outside of my first musical love, Incognito, and independent of the greatness of the artists I grew up listening to then, ths last 20+…

I love 4hero –> yet 4hero’s music must have recalibrated the actual ‘makeup’ of their listeners (the musically privileged)
