EarWaxx Sessions Week 4 recap

                        Going…going…STRONG! And a legend surprises all.

words by Drew Spence

I would never say that I hate on something, but I am a skeptic. I mean, when news about the EarWaxxSessions first hit my Editor’s desk I said “Every damn week?! These kids crazy. It’s Long Island; you can’t get kids offa that couch and outta that house EVERY week. Nah, son, they need to do this joint monthly.” I was wrong and I can admit it.

Crowd still strong? Yes.

Still enthusiastic? Yes.

Still well-organized and starting on time? Yes.

Tight Acts? Yessir

 

So, now that I see this engine has got no quits in it, let’s recap, rewind and reflect on week 4 for Long Island’s freshest artist/producer/talent showcase. The night opens with hosts @ChadLaw & @Rah_licious welcoming the crowd at exactly 10pm. [Yep, they be starting on time] After a few barbs and well-deserved attention to the lovely Rah_licious, ChadLaw brought out Fallout Shelter for the opening producer showcase part. Conflict of interest aside (ahem), it was a live hybrid-set of beats, bumpers and skits. The energy of rap arrived right after as Keez, YRA, CASTLE HEAD and the crowd that is Frank Buick by himself, tore up the stage.  Shaun Sutton got the ladies going with some sultry R&B. A.T.E BOYZ and AMA rounded things off before a surprise appearance by rap veteran and Juice Crew member Craig-G dropped his science for a new generation that’s more trappy than backpacky. It was an angry old man showing showmanship and why you still want a few veterans active in every war. Now that they’ve added guest appearances to the mix, there’s no telling what you’ll get next week.

Why should you care?

Every artist and entertainer needs a place to show out and the EarWaxxSessions is providing a dope atmosphere by having a dope crowd assemble to enjoy and support good music. If you was thinking of doing it, get it together and do it there. Finally, we have a growing spot that combines generations, genres and future greats. Make Tuesday more than the day that follows Monday. They have.

 

Born-on-date a little early? Don’t know as much about hip hop as you should? Read into the history and career of rap veteran Craig G. There’s a lot more than the legendary verse on Marley Marl’s posse cut “The Symphony” and his own rap classic “Dropping Science”. Oh and if you are a fan of those battle rap leagues, this guy was doing it when it was raw.

Sign Up and Show Out

The Challenge: Bring together a whole host of talented folks, put their gifts on display and watch the networking and sharing begin. Create a music scene on the disconnected island where quality connects can collect.

 

The Clear Choice: Every Tuesday going forward, you bring yourself down to the Amityville Music Hall. Take part and be a part.

 

Who’s Doing the Damn Thing?

Alex Yake taps MSFTZ Ent and brings together a huge cast of talent. The event was run by hosts: the engaging frontman @Chad_Law and the sexy and stylish @Rah_Licious. DJ Shuttle kept the tunes on point with a mix of today’s hottest joints and some popular classics. Wristbands were bandied about so all ages were welcome at the watering hole.

 

So what’s it like inside?

The Amityville Music Center is like a slice of Manhattan. You know what happens when you wander down any side avenue of the culturally rich east side and pop your head in a funky bar. The crowd is mixed in mind, but matched in mutual love for all things musical. You’ll get that here, at the AMC. It’s a long bar with a dance floor and stage. There’s an outdoor patio to cool out, cool off and chop it up with your new friends. There are vendor stations where you could peep some fly dresses for your missus by Claudana Designs. [if you was drooling over hostess Rah_Licious in that white joint, yeah Claudana did that] There were tables with slick tees from Brand Rockstar, Dinner Land and I Seen Thos. There was also a huge table in the back with numerous business cards.

A-List of performers

From freestyle to fashion, the Ear Wax Sessions delivers front and center.

The night started off with the producer showcase as Mike Marshian played his bangas followed by beats_by_lawrence who did a live show, manipulating his music via controller. A few crowd cyphers broke out and yeah, beats is in the building. The performance section started strong with Civil Satellite and ending just as strongly with a set by One Take Carter. Afterwards, the open mic section, where events usually fall off, was thankfully populated with artists worthy of attention. So all in all, it was a great night of music and entertainment. Bookmark your Tuesday nights for the Ear Wax Sessions.

So yeah, as we sit around the campfire and wonder what it would take to change the dire direction of music and return Long Island to a launching point for talent…the Ear Wax Sessions says ‘bring it’. And you should do just that. Bring yourself for the pure enjoyment of talent. Bring yourself to share your work and passion. Bring yourself to perform in front of a supportive crowd. Bring yourself to network and tap into undiscovered resources. Bring yourself to be part of Long Island’s best showcase for talent.

 

As Local as Local News Gets

What’s the point? Well, this is the kind of event that’s needed locally to connect artists to a supportive network. There are lots of places that do not have an active music scene or any engine in place to develop and push talent. This event and these kinds of showcases are vitally important for the future of our art. Supporting the arts is supporting yourself. Git down, come on down.
