Funk For Your Wall: Bootsy Collins Unveils "Eye-Funk"

Highly limited, highly personalized Bootsy fine art pieces now at
Eye-Funk documentary video: v=-AxV0OphsHI .
As the man whose bass guitar magic powered James Brown and Parliament/Funkadelic's creation of the genre, Bootsy Collins, as much as anyone, can comfortably lay claim to creating the sound of funk. According to legions of fans, Professor Bootsy may also have been the first person to transform funk into physical matter through his 'liquid funk' style of playing. And today, Collins takes the music synonymous with his name into yet another realm with the official unveiling of Eye-Funk, his translation of funk into a visual art image.
Eye-Funk is the result of a lengthy process involving photography, greenscreen, found images and archived elements, undertaken with the aim of isolating and visually replicating what's going on in his imagination.  Every piece in this limited-edition line of 300 is a one-of-a-kind collectible, each bearing a unique funk mantra created and applied to the canvas by Bootsy himself. Each piece is numbered and signed, with his handprints added in acrylic paint. Each piece features a number of hidden elements for its owner to discover. 250 of the 300 measure 40" x 30", while the remaining 50 weigh in at a whopping 80" x 60". Bootsy's "Golden Ticket" opportunity treated signees to the early interest list to an advance peek of the piece, but Eye-Funk is now available for all to view and purchase at .
Earlier this year, Collins made waves with the opening of The Funk University (, the online bass guitar academy masterminded and supervised by Collins himself, with help from guest professors Les Claypool, Meshell Ndegeocello, Victor Wooten, George Clinton, T.M. Stevens, John B. Williams, Divinity Roxx, Thee Ram Jam, Frankie "Kash" Waddy, Bakithi Kumalo, P-Nut and Blackbyrd McKnight. Bootsy's Funk University is produced by SceneFour, the L.A. creativity house responsible for projects with Al Gore's Current TV, MTV-U, Nine Inch Nails, the RZA, Marilyn Manson, The Pixies, and Beck.

Cashmere Releases Single "It's My Time"


Emerging New York Hip-Hop artist Cashmere is thrilled to present his brand new single "It's My Time" (prod. by BreezeNY) from his eagerly awaited debut album "Take Me Away", which is set to be released on December 21, 2010 via The Cash Administration.

The thoughtful and in-depth single, "It's My Time", is available for free download and the accompanied video, directed by Carl Bloat, is now available on YouTube - watch: .

When asked about his debut album, Cashmere says, "This album is uplifting -- it's 100% pure positive! Even the negative element you hear in it ends on a positive note and with a positive twist. I'm not telling my people to sell drugs, I'm not telling my people to act with violence -- I'm saying I did that and look where it got me! I found myself in the streets, getting shot and being locked up! Who would want that out of life?"

The project features blazing songs from one of the hottest emcees coming out of the Big Apple including the album's lead single "Where's Cashmere?" - watch: .

Cashmere, introduced to the game by Hip-Hop heavyweights DJ Enuff and DJ Kay Slay, is known for his impressive mic skilz, which have made him one of the most respected and sought-after up-n-coming artists from the East Coast. Soon, Cashmere's name branched out to other known radio personalities including Funkmaster Flex, and DJ Clue. Cashmere has already worked with major artists such as Bun B, Big Daddy Kane, Jim Jones, Lil Boosie, Akon, and Maino.

"Take Me Away" will be released on December 21, 2010 via Cashmere's label, The Cash Administration.
