(Los Angeles, California - May 17, 2011) - After a quarter century of entertaining Southern California, the JazzReggae Festival announces its full lineup, which celebrates its illustrious history while providing a platform for upcoming new artists.  As headliners Steel Pulse and Lupe Fiasco enthusiastically come to UCLA's Intramural field, the 25th Annual JazzReggae Festival at UCLA boasts an innovative and eclectic lineup that will guarantee this year's festival-goers a truly unique experience.
 
This year's festival is excitedly redefining the Jam Day experience on May 29. The festival is proud to announce the debut of The JazzReggae 25 Revue with The 12-piece Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble Featuring Special Guests Talib Kweli, Bilal, Pharoahe Monch, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Quadron, Karriem Riggins and More TBA. One of Los Angeles' most ingenious and experimental young composers, producers, and musicians, Miguel is well-known for composing the Suite for Ma Dukes, a musical tribute inspired by the work of late producer J. Dilla. He has worked with artists such as Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and Wayne Shorter. After two sold out shows in Los Angeles early this year, Swedish sensation Little Dragon is returning to bring their electric soul style to Jam Day. Funk and Soul veterans Lee Fields and the Expressions are sure to please crowds with their classic sound. Recently signed with Stones Throw Records, The Stepkids will be performing for Jam Day audiences, as well as Le J Trio Collective, a UCLA-based jazz group.
 
Jamaica native Gyptian will be following headliner Steel Pulse on Reggae Day, May 30. Tanya Stephens, accompanied by Detour Posse, will be bringing her socially conscious and influential dancehall music to UCLA's Intramural field. Also performing on Reggae Day, Panamanian duo Los Rakas combines bilingual lyricism with a mixture of reggae, hip hop, and dancehall sounds. Also performing on Reggae Day are The Wailing Souls, whose classic reggae roots sound is sure to add to the upbeat vibes of this beautiful Memorial Day spectacle. Southern Californian locals The Expanders and Samoan reggae crooner J-Boog will be performing as well.
 
The JazzReggae Festival is proud to introduce its sponsors S.O.Terik and Grooveshark. Tickets are currently on sale at UCLA's Central Ticket Office and on-line at www.ticketmaster.com.  For further information, visit the 25th Annual JazzReggae Festival on-line at www.jazzreggaefest.com

FROM HIS UPCOMING MIXTAPE

"JEFFE MUSIC - THE G5 EDITION"

JOHN COLUMBO-HELMED VIDEO

COMING SOON!!

Montgomery, AL ~ What do you get when you mix 2 parts New York lyricism and hustler mentality with a healthy shot of southern swag? Eldorado Red; a Harlem-raised, Alabama transplant whose been making quite a noise on the street music scene for the past several years. With a string of mixtapes to his credit and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube for his numerous videos, Rado is readying his next offering, "Jeffe Music - The G5 Edition" for a summer release. Hosted by esteemed Atlanta radio personality, Greg Street, and with assistance from his popular radio single, "Fresh Cut ft. Rich Boy" expectations are "Jeffe Music" will be Rado's biggest release yet.

Rado's influences are not hard to miss. His delivery speaks to his childhood years in Harlem, growing up on that city's 80's rap legends, while his content is evidence of the effect that both the streets of New York and those of Montgomery, Alabama; where his parents sent him as a teen in an attempt to keep him out of the trouble he was so drawn to, have had on his life. The results are not pretty, either visually or sonically. And that's the point. As Rado will tell you, "My music is the backdrop to the pain, trials and tribulations of life as I know it. It's undiluted. Unadulterated. This is my theme music."

Stay tuned for more content and release date info.

MP3: Rift Napalm & Meaty Ogre's Track "Naples Deli"

MP3: Rift Napalm & Meaty Ogre's Track "Naples Deli"

http://www.galapagos4.com/sounds/Closure/Rift_Napalm_and_Meaty_Ogre_-_Naples_Deli.mp3
or

Rift Napalm has been an elusive figure in hip hop. Briefly flirting with his 1st love over sporadic appearances including underground favorite 'Long Dirty Word' produced by Meaty Ogre, there was high hope & anticipation. However, since then, life itself has gotten in the way of making music. Hip hop briefly lost the balancing act, leaving an album's worth of introspective and complex lyrics unrecorded. 'Closure' is an attempt to end that chapter and reverse that trend. Rift makes amends with these 5 songs, once again using Meaty Ogre as the perfect mediator.

This EP celebrates a overdue collaboration of 2 long time G4 contributors. 'Closure' brings back Meaty Ogre's instrumentals from Dreas' cult classic Heardrums label 45s, all which are long sold out and go for top dollar. Over the instrumentals are tracks that Rift's followers may recognize from live performances over the years, including 'Coffee Cold' which had been also previously recorded and saw limited release on G4 tour CDs in the early 2000s. Also included is one newer track, 'Water Sine'. Overall it's a refreshing look at what was, what is, and what can become.
