July is right around the corner…I can almost feel the heat now. For the last few months the anticipation for LIB’s lineup was huge. That anticipation is now over. The lineup is out, and as you may have guessed, it’s major! From Eskmo to Rusko… from Desert Dwellers to Emancipator…from Pantyraid to Kastle…only the finest and most original artists have been selected to bring the party to you at the new Lighting In A Bottle location, Lake Skinner, Temecula, California, from July 11th-14th. You’ve still got some time to familiarize yourself with all the artists you don’t know before the festival kicks off…but let’s start off by previewing some tunes by the biggest headliners there this year.
Nevergreen – This is still one of the most chill songs I’ve ever come across in my lifetime. Big ups everyone living in the North West and everywhere else green in this world!
Aye Rusko…Cockney Thug just one time?
Oh you know panties are gonna start dropping…
Having experienced my first Lucent Dossier Experience show in the jungle of Costa Rica in 2012, I will forever have love for the talented Californian performance troop.
The Polish Ambassador – A. Has such a long name he gets his own line on the lineup poster! #winning — and — B. Plays the most upbeat grimy and positive glitch-hop shows around. Big ups his video guy and their jump suits!

The prohibition has ended. Welcome to the second G…. Rush.
For the first time in the history of American capitalism, the tobacco and alcohol industries are going to get some serious competition. Their markets will shrink a substantial amount; may be 25%.
How is this going to happen you might ask?
Very simply: the new kid on the block is called cannabis (C). Its consumption and its trade is now, as we speak, being legalized by the state governments of Washington and Colorado. You can now walk the streets of downtown Seattle while puffing on a (C) cigarette, freely. I was doing so last month one evening. A policeman walked by me. He did not say a word, nor did he even look in my direction. But he for sure smelled it. I suspected he probably smoked it too…
A new society awareness is being invented by the American population. One can draw a direct parallel with the 1930′s when alcohol became finally legal.
Only one must add to this comparison a fact of pure wonder, the one that will change the world as we know it: cannabis acting as the “health angel”, which in turn will prove alcohol (as well as tobacco) as “hell’s angels”. An iconic, societal combat is about to begin.
We will separate our study in two parts:
The first explains how cannabis teaches you the creative process, which starts with the thought process and finishes with the emotional one, while the link is played by the nervous system. Creativity is the voyage between the thought and the emotion. To travel the distance, we depend on the nerve. We ride on it.
We must therefore protect the latter — which is what alcohol (A), tobacco (T) and cannabis (C) do so well — in order to facilitate the creative process. Only we will explain how one of those three actors, (C), does it so much more effectively, because, among other reasons (those two being linked):
It creates much less side effects than the two others; which, in turn, makes (C) a much better actor on neuro-transmitters.
The second part will explain how the (C) makes you physiologically aware of the deficits of (A) and (T), and their taxing on one’s psycho-physical wealth. We all know about how bad those two compounds are for us (except for the moderate consumption of wholesome, pure, synthetics free red wine). But here, we will explore how (C) gets you to the feeling of such deficits, which in turn will subconsciously dictate behavioral and life style changes. And that for the better.

Look out! Naturally thriving in the dead of winter, Eskmo is set for yet another big EP release this season with Ancestor Records. I guess it’s irony that allows one of the world’s coldest producers to reside in sunny southern California. The Terra EP will be the follow up to the recently released EP - Language. The seven song EP will be made available for “pay what you will” purchase via Eskmo.com on January 21, 2012.
If you love this man’s music, be sure to grab the files…
And if he’s landing in your city, don’t miss the show!
