Green Chile In The Air, Vol. 8 Out now!!

Green Chile In The Air, Vol. 8

The annual international collaborative album created by Diles at Central Root in Albuquerque, NM. Presented by Visceral View Entertainment this series continues to deliver timely music each year with vibes and topics encapsulating the specific time period during the creation of each project. Much like a batch of green Chile every year offers subtle differences but overall you can begin to expect a certain frequency when playing these records. Speaking of frequency this is the 8 consecutive year of the project which makes it the longest standing series to come out of New Mexico and perhaps ever. Having featured artists from around the USA and more than 6 countries around the world, GCITA is starting to show promise as a true export of New Mexican flavor and vibe. This year stays true to the series being a platform for emerging artists and veteran professionals all at once. Most notably are features from Moka Only (founder of Swollen Members/Battle Axe Records which sold hundreds of thousands of records and won consecutive Juno awards which are the Canadian Grammy equivalent) and Scarub of the famed Living Legends crew who were pioneers in early underground Hip-Hop music worldwide. Also, Illuminati Congo is a notable name and upcoming artist who has emerged as one of Hip-Hop/Reggae’s freshest voices with a prolific work ethic. Rounding out the album is mostly the hometown hero cast of Ras Elijah Tafari, Hakim Be, Ras Illy, Laura Cruz, Simatic, Eli Del Puerto, and Kayohes. Also, Po.10.Cee from Taos, NM brought some authentic New Mexico vibes, Alphounce Wolfe from neighboring Phoenix, AZ contributed a verse and also a new voice in Keren Kmanwey from Havana who brought some Cuban flavor to the project. Another batch for the freezer!

There are several traditions you count on every fall in New Mexico. The Albuquerque international balloon festival; where 1000′s of balloons from around the world fill the sky every morning for two weeks.

Nearly every street corner boasting a chile roasting stand where New Mexico’s prized possession of green chile is roasted, bagged, and taken home to be peeled and frozen to ensure locals have it on stock until the next harvest year, and…

Albuquerque producer Diles’ (@diles_tellem) annual album “Green Chile In The Air” which continually features artists from ABQ, across the U.S.A and countries around the globe. This year marks the 5th year in the series and could be the most potent batch yet.

Having featured artists from cities such as Denver, Colorado Springs, Vancouver,Taos, LA, Chicago, Libreville (Africa), Luasanne (Switzerland), Port-of-Spain (Trinidad), Bordeaux (France), Bluefields (Nicaragua) and more… the Green Chile In The Air series is doing its part in sending New Mexico vibes out into the world via sound waves instead of our traditional export (Green Chile itself).

Green Chile In The Air, Vol. 4 available now

This is the 4th installment of the annual album Green Chile In The Air from Albuquerque producer Diles, with Visceral View Entertainment. This year brought the focus closer to home yet still represents an array of artists from L.A., Denver, Colorado Springs, Chicago, and of course Albuquerque. This year features local heavyweights and veterans of the music scene such as Jungle One, Def-I, Darbstar, Eph Sharp, Kayohes, Ras Elijah Tafari and former Albuquerque Poet Laureatte Hakim Bellamy, as well as up and coming rising artists such as Dremon and Ras Illy. There is also a handful of national and international recording artists such as Illuminati Congo, Mike Wird, Idris Goodwin, Charles Ex, Lucy LaForge, Anacron, and Raashan Ahmad to round out this years batch.
In keeping with tradition, the majority of the songs (crop) were conceived (planted), recorded (cultivated) and mixed (harvested) during “Chile Season”, which occurs during the fall every year in New Mexico. Out of town artists record their songs in their respective cities and files are sent to Diles at Central Root Studios, where the songs are arranged, compiled, and mixed. Much like the process of harvesting chile, this is Diles’ “labor of love” and ensuring consistency and quality is of upmost importance.
Look out for another prolific year from Visceral View Entertainment in 2015 by Diles with a handful of collaborative projects with artists such as Anacron, Z-Man, Hakim Be, Charles Ex, Jungle One, Molina Speaks, Idris Goodwin and even more. Plant it, pick it, roast it, peel it, bag it, freeze it, dethaw it, put IT on everything. #GreenChileInTheAir
