Limited Sublime Shoes Released by Vans

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off

More than 20 years ago, Sublime released one of today’s most iconic albums w/ 40oz to Freedom. The best visual representation of Sublime is the album’s cover with whats referred to as the Sublime Sun. Now, Sublime has teamed up with Vans, putting the Sublime Sun on a limited run of Sk8-Hi shoes!

These are the first ever Sublime shoes, limited to 240 pair at $80 a piece and all signed by the artist, Opie Ortiz. Unfortunately, these shoes sold out before the news of their existence could really hit the mainstream. It’s our hope that this is the first run of many more to come from Vans Sublime.

The sun was placed on Vans’ original high-top with the sun across the canvas quarter panels along with the Sublime logo on the tongue. They were sold exclusively at Vans.com and SublimeLBC.com.

I had the chance to speak with artist, Opie Ortiz, about the Sublime Sun and he explained it’s origin as: “..it’s just imagination. I had Mexican Aztec images in my mind when I was doing that, but I had to put it in a modern day twist. So it’s just like, life death! You look at the flames and they’re kind of like black white they look like sperm almost, you know what I’m saying? Inside is death life rebirth all that. It’s just a combination of images to form a central image”.

When I asked where the concept of the sun came from for the cover, Opie continues that “You have your homies do it instead of going out and having someone else do it, who doesn’t know you. I feel like they were comfortable with me relaying an image that represented them, you know? Miguel Brad saw that in me.” Opie goes on by explaining: “I was airbrushing t-shirts and if you look in the 40oz to Freedom (booklet), you see the picture of Sublime standing in the street Brad is wearing an air-brushed t-shirt that I did a long time ago, around that era – And that’s the image where we got the idea for the sun for 40oz.”

That idea has now become a symbolic image among Sublime fans enthusiasts. It’s on stickers, patches, lighters, jackets, hoodies, t-shirts among every other imaginable accessory and for what’s being boasted as the first time ever, it’s now on officially on Shoes.

No official word if these will be re-released. My guess, or hope, is the first 240 pair were the initial run that included Opie’s signature. Being that these shoes sold out as fast as the double platinum album the sun hails from, we’re betting these shoes will hit the shelves again, but don’t be surprised or bummed if the price goes up due to the demand.

Now if only the powers that be, behind Sublime, officially re-release 40oz to Freedom on vinyl!

MP3 Leak of the Week: Etana

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off

Etana, Jamaica’s Roots Reggae Empress released her fourth studio album titled, I Rise, on Oct 28th via VP Records. She’s giving away her latest single, “Richest Girl”, for FREE we have details over the new milestone of Etana being the first Jamaican female artist to reach the top of the Billboard Reggae charts in more than 20 years…

You can download Etana’s new track, “Richest Girl”, for FREE on our home page under the MP3 Leak of the Week on the right hand column! This Download will only be available until Saturday Nov 22nd, 2014.

Etana – “Richest Girl”
Etana

Etana, whose name means “the strong one”, had a strong release as I Rise topped the Billboard Reggae Album charts in just a week, positioning Etana as one of three Jamaican female artists ever, and the first in nearly two decades (since Diana King and Patra in the mid-90s), to land on top of the Billboard charts.

I Rise was produced by legendary Jamaican multi-instrumentalist and producer Clive Hunt and the release follows Etana’s previous albums with Better Tomorrow, Free Expressions, and The Strong One. This album resonates her true passion for reggae by expressing her deep-rooted spirituality on tracks like the Bob Marley remake of “Selassie Is The Chapel,” the Marcia Griffith’s cover of “Stepping Out Of Babylon” “Emancipation” and “On My Way.” Producer Clive Hunt arranged an all-star team of the island’s musicians to contribute to the album – including himself, Sly and Robbie, Grub Cooper, Handel Tucker, and Dean Fraser.

I Rise includes 15 total songs and you can pick up Etana’s new album on iTunes by clicking HERE!

Etana’s Background:
The beautiful Etana was born in Jamaica and moved to South Florida in the early 90s. After prematurely leaving college, Shauna McKenzie (AKA Etana) joined an all-female vocal group called Gift. She chose not to conform to the music industry’s skimpy standards and moved back home to Kingston, to focus on producing music based on her Rastafarian spirituality and love of Jamaica. Back home she performed background vocals for Richie Spice and Fifth Element and she wrote her first single “Wrong Address” while in studio with some of the band’s musicians. This single reached #1 on several Jamaican charts and was included in her first album The Strong One.

Artist Radar: RDGLDGRN

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off

This week The Pier is bringing you some of the baddest artists around, coming out of the D.C. metro area is RDGLDGRN. These hip-hop, rock, go-go outfit is absolutely taking the country by storm as they look towards their second release.

RDGLDGRN is a three piece band comprised of Green (vocals), Red (guitar), and Gold (bass). They mix heavy alternative sounds with hip-hop verses and go-go drum beats for a wild and interactive live experience that should not go unnoticed. They recorded their first album at the legendary Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California alongside the legendary Dave Grohl, who played drums on the entire album. If that wasn’t enough of a cameo, Pharrell Williams also took over production for the track “Doing the Most”.

Since their first album, RDGLDGRN has toured the country, played at multiple festivals, including California Roots: The Carolina Sessions, where I recently saw them play and has wowed fans with their excitable and unique stage presence. They are now looking towards their second release, which will be an EP set to drop around Thanksgiving.

The Pier was able to hop on the phone with Red for a great conversation about how the guys got the name, playing with Dave Grohl, and everything else in between. So please enjoy…

Artist Radar: RDGLDGRN

The Pier: First of all hope is all well with you guys.
Red: Yeah man, everything is great with us. We have some exciting things coming up.

The Pier: Cool I’ve been dying to ask you, where did you guys come up with the name?
Red: Well when it came time to create a band name the three of us were making music and we realized at some point you need a band name. So we couldn’t think of anything clever like Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., RDGLDGRNCover1 or Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. So we couldn’t think of anything clever and we just settled with things like Peter Bjorn and John, and Crosby, Stills and Nash and we figured on Red Gold Green. In the beginning we had Red Gold and Green, and when we typed it into Google to see what the search revealed, and there was just so many other things so this is gonna be a nightmare to get people to find out our band name. I was like ‘alright lets mastercraft and we’ll just take out the vowels’ and then ‘cool, it looks unique’ and certainly its just us, there’s nothing on the Internet like that and if you type it in, you’ll be able to find everything about us easily. So great, problem solved, but the only problem is we ended up creating a giant problem for ourselves because when you tell people the band is RDGLDGRN but we spell it without the vowels, people are like ‘what?’ is that ‘R…D?’ Now it’s actually harder to find our band name then it wouldn’t have been had we spelled it in English in the first place. (laughs). But it’s all good.

The Pier: That’s great. Now I know you guys go by those names at all times, but did you think of it all ahead of time, like ‘hey this could be something unique’?
Red: Well no, it was actually before the band, as people that’s what we called each other. Here’s the short story…I just started to notice that I felt most comfortable having red things, and my eyes were just drawn to that color. So I slowly over time, maybe around 2006, I started buying red shoes, red shirts, and would come around the others, and compliment them on having something that was red. I began identifying them with me ya know? I’m my own individual and it was my color. That was kind of how that got started. It was separate from any band decision about how we can stand out or anything like that. But we found out about this Japanese band called Peelander Z, whose who thing is having colors too but they have this whole backstory where it’s all sci-fi and fantasy and they come from this planet Peelander and there’s Peelander Green, Peelander Red, and Peelander Black. It was interesting because we first saw them at South By Southwest in 2012 or something like that and that was awesome.

The Pier: So you guys seem to get labeled as “reggae” quite often. Your band colors are red, gold and green, so you obviously get associated with reggae. I have seen and heard your music and it is not reggae, in fact it is actually far from it. What do you guys say to that and how would you describe your music?
Red: You kidding? Of course we’re reggae, have you seen my hair? (laughs). Usually when people come up to us and that comment is made at a show, maybe we’re opening for Pepper or Sublime with Rome and 311, so it’s not really out of pocket for someone in that situation or for someone to say it sounds or feels reggae, ya know? Because of the whole environment of the night and the headlining acts and what not so we really don’t have to say much about it that night or in that sense. Since your asking now, our music is more hip-hop but it has some indie rock sensibilities and it also has some go-go elements and some pop elements, because we all love pop songs and we want to make great songs that are fun to sing and listen to. So it’s actually far from reggae so we basically call it alternative if your going to generalize. But if you want to describe the sound it’s hip-hop it’s a little bit of indie rock and we borrow the go-go drum beat more often then not and we kind of mix it all together. Just like anybody’s music you can kind of tell their influences from different songs and we’re not much different then that really.

The Pier: Yeah, and anymore most artists don’t like to get labeled or pigeon holed, but if I had to describe the sound I get a new age Rage Against the Machine feel, and maybe a little Beastie Boys, but it is fun to listen to you guys and see what kind of new music your going to come out with.
Red: Yeah exactly, it’s almost necessary to give things labels because that’s the easiest way to talk about it, but like you said, when you get into it you can get a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

The Pier: Definitely. Now for the question that I have been dying to ask, how was working with Dave Grohl? Wasn’t the Sound City Documentary being filmed around that time?
Red: Well it was actually simultaneously while he was filming the Sound City documentary, because we were in the studio and as we recorded our first record at Sound City. He was coming though with the film crew and there were actually parts of the documentary where we were in the same room as him and everything as he was at the same time recording the drums for “I Love Lamp” and some of the other songs

The Pier: So did you guys reach out to him ahead of time or did you guys just happen to be there when he was there and it worked out?
Red: No, no, we reached out ahead of time, because they were like ‘who do you guys wanna work with? Just throw out some names and ideas’, and we went strait to the top. Our producer at the time (Kevin Augunas (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Cold War Kids)) actually knew Dave at the time, and it was easy enough for him to throw him and email, where he was like ‘Hey I got these guys coming in and they’re recording here, they’re from Virginia and stuff, what do you think do you want to drum on the record?’ And Dave came back like, ‘yeah man, that’ll be fun,’ and he came in and we were all like ‘Dude!’ (laughs), it was like the craziest day of our lives.
RDGLDGRN1
The Pier: That’s nuts! And on top of it you guys got to work with Pharrell on “Doing the Most”?
Red: Yeah man, same basic thing. We threw his name out there too, and they were like ‘we can actually get in contact with him too’ and we were like ‘word?’ (laughs). It was different though because he was in LA, and he was in the studio along with Jason Derulo and he was playing the role of like doctor where he was peaking in different studios and going from one to the other working really hard. So we were in there with him and basically banged out a song in like 15 minutes, which is crazy.

The Pier: Wow, what a story. So onto your new material, which is going to be your second release correct?
Red: Yeah we are working on an EP. Our first single “Elevators” if off of that EP. We are going to have this one and possibly a second before the album comes out. But were still working on the music and getting the video sorted and getting everything ready. So it’s a little early to set any of that in stone besides the first EP.

The Pier: Is “Cornbread” going to be on that first EP?
Red: It’s too early to tell, let me just say that (laughs)

The Pier: (laughs) Yeah I’m trying to pry information out of you. So for the release of that EP do you guys have a date set?
Red: I’ll give you what I can man. For the release I think we’re talking right around Thanksgiving. We’ll have a seconds single coming out then the EP will soon follow.

The Pier: Now did you guys work with any producers or any other artists on any of the tracks besides Nike Nando on the “Cornbread” track?
Red: So far no, we took this opportunity to get a product together that is completely from us. We worked with people last time and it was great, it was fantastic and there is no question about that. But this time we wanted to also have something that is purely from us so people can get a feel for more of what RDGLDGRN is all about. Yeah so we didn’t want anyone to cloud anyone’s perception of us. Sometimes if you say you work with this person people think you sound like this, or you say you work with that person and people think you sound like that. So if you don’t tell anyone you worked with anybody people will think you sound like you.

The Pier: I like that a lot. As far as the sound goes for the new record, it seems like it’s going to be a little more raw and uncut.
Red: Yeah. Think of it as a scale. On the first record it was a little more rock heavy and then there were a few shining hip-hop moments. So now we’re going to balance the scales a little bit, and turn the rock down and bring the hip-hop more to the forefront.

The Pier: That’s awesome, I’m excited. So are you guys looking at any follow up tours or anything else exciting that you can give me a sneak peak on?
Red: Well, one as long as the zombie apocalypse doesn’t happen we’re definitely going to be touring. We’re looking to do more things at colleges, maybe some events at frat houses. We’re looking to do some east coast stuff but we don’t have anything on the books just yet but were excited to get out to where colleges are and kick it with everybody on like a very informal level. Sometimes on the environment of a show or the environment of a tour are not quite as informal as if we did a house party or a frat and we want to have some fun with it ya know?

The Pier: I was actually down at the Carolina Sessions, and I wanted to ask, what happened to Green’s verse on the last song of your guys set? I noticed he fudged up a little and then started spitting a freestyle?
Red: (Laughs) Well yeah. Here’s a little insight; we all pretty much run on auto pilot so when we start doing something we can multitask. We can start thinking about other things like taking a look into the crowd and even have conversations with people while were playing. But the problem with that is if you are multitasking too hard, you actually forget what you are doing so then when you come back to the main task at hand you forget where you are in the song, and that’s what must have happened with Green. He was thinking about something else and I think it was on the second verse on “A Million Fans” and he came in and was like ‘I’m a color, not another black rock…I’m a black rock,” (laughs) and he forgot the lyrics and was like ‘fuck it’, and he spit a freestyle. That’s not the first time that happened and it won’t be the last, but it doesn’t happen at every show so that if it does happen, everyone should just know they’re in for a special treat.
RDGLDGRN2
The Pier: (Laughs) Yeah man that was awesome and what I noticed from people near by me, was chatter about your guys stage presence. Where people were like ‘Wow!’, these guys are something different. I think when that happened, I was actually pumped that I got to see that and I think a lot of other people were the same way, and just thoroughly impressed.
Red: Well thanks man. When we’re on stage, we’re on stage. And when we’re up there it’s a giant privilege for us to make the music we want to make, and then play it in front of people, and this is our livelihood. So when we’re on stage it’s nothing short of a pure celebration of life. We love it, we live it, and there’s nothing we’d rather be doing. It kind of just naturally shows in what were doing and your right, sometimes you see a show and it seems a little subdued, sometimes it lets you down but sometimes that’s exactly what the music calls for. Our music definitely does call for any type of restraints so we kind of let it all go (laughs).

The Pier: That’s what’s up man. The last question I forgot to ask was whose going to be playing drums on the new release?
Red: Okay, well so far we got our drummer Snacks, our touring drummer, same dude from Carolina Sessions. We’ve only really recorded one drums and we got some demos going so that’s kind of what we’re going to be focusing on this next week. So far it’s just going to be him. We can all play drums but not well enough, and our timing is a little off (laughs). He’s better than that.

The Pier: Well look man, this interview was awesome. Hopefully I’ll catch you guys soon! I appreciate you taking the time out.
Red: No worries man, we’ll probably being see you soon. Thank you.

Destin is Quiet

Posted in Island Enthusiasts | Comments Off

This time of the year is probably the quietest time of the entire year in Destin. The fishing tournament is over, fall breaks have been completed and the snow birds have not descended on the town in full force yet. This is when you can walk into almost any restaurant and get a table at dinner time! LOL

Sunshine Cindy and I didn’t do much this weekend. We are still winding down from our Key West vacation. Thursday night I headed to Landshark Pizza to watch the Browns football game. It was a big game for them against the Bengals who were heavily favored. Paige, Jason and Austin were working. I settled in at the bar with a pizza and a beer. I watched the first half at Landshark. The Browns were kicking butt. I got home in time for the second half and they continued their domination. Wow is all I can say. They look like a real team this year.

Friday Sunshine Cindy and I ran around town doing a bunch of errands. It was mid afternoon when we were done. We decided we wanted some lunch so we headed to the Boathouse. As we walked in someone was waving at us. It was our friends from Southern Illinois. Alan and Jackie are back for the winter. They also had Kistin, Jeff, Cathy and Dale with them. We knew they were in town but we never expected to run into them at the Boathouse on a Friday afternoon. We had a good time catching up with them.

We saw some other friends there too. Gigi was running around making sure everyone was doing their jobs, Kerby was there fixing some things, Paige stopped by with Lela and Bree was there with her child. We had a nice relaxing time there. We left and headed home for the evening. As I was driving home on Main Street, some old guy riding a bicycle in the right hand lane was weaving a little so I moved over to the outside lane. Just as I got to him he turned right in front of me. Good thing I was watching. I slammed on my brakes and avoided the old guy but it scared the crap out of me.

On Saturday Sunshine Cindy and I worked around the house and on Crab Island Mambo stuff. Plus Sunshine Cindy cooked up a pot of potato soup to take to a party we were going to that evening at Julies. The soup turned out fantastic. The party was a lot of fun. It was nice hanging with friends.

We didn’t go to the harbor on Saturday for the Blues, Brews and BBQ festival. From what I have heard they had big crowds. We were there last year and had a fun time so I am sure everyone had fun this year. I have not seen who won the best BBQ but there are some real good BBQ in this town so I am sure it was deserved.

We were very lazy on Sunday. I watched some football. Sunshine Cindy cooked up a great brunch. The only place I went to was Landshark Pizza to visit with our Southern Illinois friends. I wanted to drop off some flyers for Kirstin to take back to her parrot head club for our June “Phlocking of the Phaithful” Trop Rock party in Put in Bay, Ohio. We would love to see some of their club come up and party with us. In fact we love for everyone to join us for this fun time. Here is the link for all the information: http://www.crabislandmambo.com/Crab-Island-Mambo-presents-Phlocking-of-the-Phaithful.html

As I mentioned it is real slow around town right now. Driving home Saturday night there was almost no one on the road. This is such a far cry from just a few weeks ago. But don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining. It is a nice break.

It looks like some colder weather is coming in again later this week. I am ready for summer!!! Have a great week. See ya Thursday.
