R.I.P. Eyedea


The title says it all - R.I.P. Eyedea - but this post has a little more news. Below is an excerpt from the Gimme Noise section of CityPages.com:

---

One of the Twin Cities most beloved musical talents has passed away. Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen, a longtime Rhymesayer, singer, lyricist and fixture in the indie hip-hop scene died early this morning, just a month shy of his 29th birthday.

Friends of Larsen said his mother, Kathy Averill, found him this morning.

"It is with great pain and sadness that I tell you my son Mikey (Eyedea) has passed away," she wrote on his personal Facebook page. "At this time we kindly request your respect and our privacy as we process this devastating loss. On behalf of Mikey's family, close friends and fans, thank you."

MP3: League510 - "Party and Bullshit"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: League510 - "Party and Bullshit"

Latest Party Track from the Gentlemen of League510

The Song:

Oakland Town Techno poster-child League510 is releasing their latest single "Party and Bullshit," an up-tempo party anthem in their distinctive style of techno infused hip-hop.

"Party and Bullshit" is a new-age Left Coast echo of Biggie Small's 90's East Coast have-fun Alma Matter. The playful lyrics mirror the group's innovative approach to life as well as music, embracing a well-known chorus with technological advancement. When asked about the main inspiration for the song League510 responded, "This song is just about living it up, going crazy, doing what you want to do with your life and partying until the day you die, because you only live once."

"Party and Bullshit" comes two months after the release of their mixtape Invasion, Vol. 1, which played off the theme that they are, in fact, aliens from another planet. Currently the team of E.R's (Extraterrestrial Rappers) is preparing for their next phase of world domination, manifesting their plans in the form of their debut album To The Beat, to which we will ultimately find ourselves marching.

Watch out for more information about To The Beat's upcoming release.

The Background:

Emcees TK, Mont, Mr. Knowitall and DJ Blacksmith better known as League510 are pioneers of a sound that is all their own, Town Techno. With a sound that is out of this world, League510's musical journey began in a galaxy far away from ours. After traveling the universe for years, they entered our galaxy and our planet shortly thereafter. With sights on our world, the quartet chose to land in the hills east of Oakland, CA. After hiding their ship deep in the hills they approached this new town with great curiosity and were immediately amazed by the vibrant culture that they found. Adopting the Bay Area scene as their new home, League510 wasted no time in beginning their new musical journey here in our world. Using advanced abilities, the four emcees quickly mastered the art of sound and gave birth to Town Techo, a form of music that would unite the people in heightened awareness; to show them to take action, to appreciate the fun in life, to believe in themselves and to believe in The League.
