fREE MUSIC...ASEN JAMES :: Henny Float

Our good friend, Asen James recently had dropped a free album called Henny Float referencing Asen's secret recipe involving Hennessy and vanilla ice cream...hmmmm. The Henny Float became the source of inspiration for the album release on General Particular’s Foco Moto imprint. The Album consists of 18 tracks of “chops”, a re-mix art form well known to lovers of modern music. The tunes were (re)created mostly from classic R & B Tunes but include a few surprises as well. The album, produced by James and Executive Produced by Rich Williams, seeks to fill a gap in instrumental hip hop projects. Asen is a Brooklyn-based musician, music producer, and writer. Asen has been known as a producer under the moniker, Ray Beta, lending his production skills for artist who has been labeled "True School", among them X-Clan and YZ.

In recent years Asen has written theme music for Grey Publishing, the company of legendary Marvel and DC comics artist, Grey. He has also scored the films, No Problema, by writer, director Rich Williams and Moral Panic by Documentarian Akintola Hanif. Check the heat

Mamas love...YOUNITY FRESHER! Eco-Street Art Show TOMORROW 10/3 7-11pm

I'll be showing some new work at the new YOUNITY show (will give a sneak peep soon)!

- Third Annual Exhibit Features 40 Female Avant-Garde Artists Who Recycle & Create Art for the Earth -

Queens, NY (September 3, 2009)— Back for its third annual show, YOUNITY presents an eco-art exhibition entitled 
FRESHER!, opening October 3, 2009 at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center in the Lower East Side section of New York City. Running until October 23, 2009, the exhibit is not the average “white-wall” art show; the all-female collective will transform the art space into an eco-funhouse of raw materials and street art. Elements such as graffiti, photography, design and construction are used to connect ideas about consumerism, environmentalism, health, and renewable energy. The private press hour from 6pm-7pm will grant access to notable, oft-unseen artists right before the public unveiling of work at 8pm. FRESHER! features main-stay YOUNITY artists such as Lady Pink, Martha Cooper, and AIKO while introducing emerging artists such as China Morbosa and Amanda Lopez YOUNITY Co-Founders and artists, Alice Mizrachi and TOOFLY, continue to push the collective to new levels of creativity.

Exhibiting works will mask the bi-level art space with a range of colorful hand-styles, creative graphics on natural textures such as wood and abstract riffs. Some of the artworks will focus on messages about greening and preserving the earth, including recycling, pollution and even ideas about social issues. A video montage will display the collective’s latest effort to Refresh the Streets –a collaborative effort to beautify a 60ft outdoor mural in Williamsburg Brooklyn with colorful, green-themed street art by selected members of the YOUNITY. Exhibiting artists at FRESHER! include SHIRO, Diana McClure, Kerri O’Connell, LICHIBAN, Krista Franklin, Kelly Denato, Niz, Paulina Quintana Jornet, and Cece Carpio, to name a few. Only 40 out of 300 female artists were selected to participate in this special exhibit.

“We wanted to provide a working network of opportunity for female artists,” says YOUNITY Co-founder Alice Mizrachi, “and we, as women, need a space to create art exhibitions, murals, books and a much needed archive of women’s urban contemporary art.” YOUNITY Co-founder TOOFLY adds, “Look at recent events that are affecting us and the next generation: the economy, global warming and healthcare, this is the perfect time to put on a show like FRESHER! and express our creative desire to promote green living and the improvement of our community.”

With the success of their premiere exhibit, The C R O S S O V E R, and the second annual Heart and Soul show, YOUNITY has become one of the most sought after all-female collectives to date. With that, they are devoted to passing the torch on to younger female artists through the YOUNITY Youth team. As of now, YOUNITY is in need of continued support to foster its self-publishing endeavors and independent growth. Limited edition YOUNITY t-shirts will be available for sale on opening night and online at We will also have a very limited amount of Heart and Soul books available as well. The limited edition shirts and books will both retail for $20. Any other donations to the collective can be directed to: via PayPal.
