Urban Verbs set to kick off Revolutions film festival!

“Be” by Hakim Be out now!!!

“Be, the freshman spoken word album by 2-time National Champion Slam Poet Hakim Be, is a mix of story and statement. As a freelance journalist by education and trade, this album is an intriguing balance of creative non-fiction and manifesto. Always traversing that dangerous tightrope between the political and the personal, Hakim Be takes that tightrope and ties it up into the inseparable knot it is. He continues to tighten that knot throughout this album that is as much autobiography as it is cultural analysis and critique. As a Hip-Hop generation practitioner, Hakim Be has a way of taking current events and content from the third-grade reading level of the newspaper pages to the University level in concept. Yet still deliver it with a swagger and lyricism that makes it relevant and fresh to those street intellectuals who never pick up a newspaper and don’t trust the classroom. This album is like a textbook that’s required reading for your ears and combined with the jazzy, soulful production by Diles, is also food for the body. With musical arrangement and composition that covers multiple genres and could sometimes even be described as “experimental”, Diles and Hakim Be have put together a product that continues to expand, elevate and challenge the notion of what is and what isn’t Hip Hop. Call it what you want, at the end of the day this album has something for the compulsive café poet, the underground hip hop lyricist, the cultural critic, the funk fanatic, the pipe-wielding thinker and the beat junkee. Just like the motley crew of trend setters and individualist who will critically acclaim this album, Be won’t fit into the box of rap nor the poetry sectionsat your local record store or booksellers. It’ll just be what it be.”

“A collaborative compilation featuring some of New Mexico’s top spoken word poets and Hip-Hop emcees, in addition to several notable guest spots from out-of-state.

The compilation is titled Mood Static. Diles quietly released the instrumental album online in July of 2010, sharing the album mostly with friends and associates in the Albuquerque music scene. Diles began reaching out to local and national artists in an effort to transform Mood Static into an innovative music production, highlighting his friends’ vocal talents.

Mood Static features New Mexican artists Zack Freeman, Jungle One, Patch, Xian, Esme Vaandrager, Nick Fury, Solar, and Hakim Bellamy. Hip-Hop emcees Molina of Colorado and Jondis of New York round out the talent, and Diles drops some of his own flows on the Hip-Hop/Nu-Jazz compilation.

Mood Static (The instrumental album) was intended to be lounge music, or background music, providing a soundtrack to people’s everyday lives. The vocal talent adds poetic and philosophical elements, elevating the artistry of mood static through creative collaboration. The Mood Static compilation will be released online on December 21st, with a physical release and a collaborative album release party following sometime in March of 2011.

Diles is a freelance beat maker, recording and studio engineer. He is also the founder of Visceral View Enterainment, a professional and business-oriented arts collective that supports and nourishes the development of independent artists.”
