As a lover of all genres of music, I was extremely excited to find out that Timeless, Mochilla’s epic Composer/Arranger series was screening in DC, with JRocc of the World Famous Beat Junkies, Director B+ and Co-Director Eric Coleman.
Now remind you that the films (three in total) are all 75 minutes long, so I wondered what creative way they were going to show the film and keep the essence.
What they put together was the perfect combination of all three films, weaved together by the music of the film and JRocc finessing his DJ/VJ skills. There are so many words I could use to describe the emotion of the room, especially during the “Suite for Ma Dukes”—the JDilla film. The room was filled with sounds of “Ahhhhs” and “Ohhhhhs”, accompanied by head nods and handclaps—it was really beautiful to hear Hip-Hop in a different light.
I also discovered Ethiopian Jazz artist Mulatu, I’ve heard his name but never listened to his music –this film has made me look for his works. Now, Brazilian Artist Arthur Verocai –him I have heard and loved for quite some time, some Hip-Hop heads might know his work, artists such as; Little Brother and MF Doom have sampled Verocai. I think it’s great to see Verocai finally get the recognition for his contribution to Brazilian music.
Everyone it would behoove you to support this and films like Timeless, especially if you are seeking out a musical change or to expand your knowledge of music. Educational films like the Timeless series should be shown in our schools and communities to inform the youth that there’s a plethora of music out there.
wonderful masterpiece to DC! Great job gentlemen…I applaud you!
