STARS

  • Just 5 days until Noah 23 drops this massive release he has been hinting toward via his social media, down below we have an unbelievable track listing. Its 33 tracks long, and regardless how ethereal that is alone, its unheard of really for this many artists to be on this tape at once!  Set to release this coming Saturday, the 23rd. Noah 23 along side the onslaught of artists on this monumental feature. Witch may very well break the game. fortunately. Any zag we pull down into the neither world to listen to this may jeopardize the upper crust of mainstream culture, causing a shift into this Void Wave masterpiece.

    I have got a NVR GIFT for you brought to you by Noah 23, Pictureplane, & Dylan Ross. A track called RUNNING THRU YR HEAD ft. DYLAN ROSS (PROD. BY PICTUREPLANE)

    The newest kids on the block aren’t as “NU” as you’re thinking. When grind long enough zag, everything can feel like forever, in your mental. Just something to consider is the fact that these players have been logging in more hours than lumber jack made of your adolescent meebo instant messenger. Anyone who supports this kind of entertainment I’m sure to be really expecting something that this album actually delivers on. I haven’t heard the entire thing but get ready for this great production – some flows so icy & relentless (even) on a colossus mega deck, & to mention, there will be a physical release. Where we find many a unique flow from artists like the main zag Noah 23 but spanning across the crypt with unlock-able listens

    “So is here the official track list. It is insanely monstrous and also comes with instructions on listening in 2 pieces. Side (B) begins on track 16.” – NOAH 23

  • : FIRST LOOK :: M I N T GALLERY :::

    A collective of young artists just last year, have gathered enough resources, to aid them in adding a very necessary installation in the Columbus night life scene. Known as  M I N T, ( the gallery is located 42 W Jenkins, Columbus Ohio), this gallery stands to truly become a significant relic as not only a “safe space”, (and) not only one for artists, but one free to grow to have a deep connection with artistic youth of Columbus, as they grow inside of inside of it. 

    Fed up, with seemingly infinite limitations throughout the of end the adolescent years, that struggle has invoked a sort of “Go Big or Go Home” mentality. Everyone supports each other here, regardless of their differences.

    Columbus is mainly stuffed with a gigantic college campus, OSU, the iconic dive-bars that only locals know to go, and hidden eateries scattered a bout, the few music halls (generally only book larger bands, leaving little room for lesser known collectives). So most of the urban landscape can be imagined as a very barren place, in an aesthetic sense. It can be hard to place oneself, especially those with such overly active [millennial] minds. Who view it with less accessibility to those whom have somehow “adjusted” into the area. 

    [For those who are not enrolled students in a campus, with those types of resources or businessmen and women who are financing their own offices, boutiques, and trinket stores, it can appear to be a bit dismal at times, trying to attempt to become something bigger than everything around you.] 

    These youths come from such a long history of  house parties/events, and a multitude of LGBT safe houses that have come and gone, but ultimately continue to make to the necessary leaps needed, into beneficial circumstances such as their own first commercial art space, where they rent the space out for curation and cultivation of all kinds, wether it be commercial or otherwise. 

    NN: Would you care to tell me about the Mint Gallery; Mission, Affiliations, Members, Programs Offered, and Hours: 

    CJ Brazleton: MINT is an art space that was once a meat processing factory. It is occupied by a group of emerging artists in Columbus Ohio. We are located on the south side of Columbus in Merion Village at 47 W Jenkins Avenue. 

    Our goal is as a collective is to encourage and cultivate collaboration and new modes of thinking. MINT gives these artists an affordable place to make their work, while at the same time being a core piece to a much bigger picture; a responsive movement for the Columbus’ Arts community.

    Right now I think MINT an incredible thing because it is such a temporal space. Alternative art spaces like ours are everywhere, and they usually have short life spans. These spaces are usually ran by artists who need to create their work, and it is also a vessel that will allow them to do what their local galleries or institutions are too afraid to do. So to have that mentality, everything you do in that activated space becomes precious to you.

    After the artist(s) showcase, their is typically a performance artist post show, featured ‘Ground Is Lava’

    We have members in a lot of different fields. We have members who are responsible for Night Mode Sound System, a key collection of djs in the city. A lot of the future projects and collaborations are in the works, but I can assure you they will be diverse as hell in what they offer.

    Currently, MINT has an art gallery, music space, and studios. The way we program our events seems to be pretty open. Interested in working with us? Contact any member and they will propose that idea to the group.

    NN: What is the event history as to date – Roster of Past Exhibitions ?

    CJ Brazelton: We’ve had five art exhibitions thus far. Our inaugural show was titled Influx, featuring Walter Sutin, Noah Markoe, Ben Pederson, and Zachary Armstrong. That was a key show because it made us realize what it took to install in what used to be a chicken processing room. So when it was time for Dark Matter, HARD/SOFT, and Refigural, we knew how to go about it with those concrete walls.

    NN: How long are each of the exhibitions ?

    CJ Brazelton: Each show on average seems to run about two and a half weeks. Our gallery hours currently are Thursday through Saturday, from 6pm – 10 pm.

    NN: You have artist talks, as well during each showcase. I enjoyed very much. Interactivity intellectually & and thereafter – live music and musical performances.

    CJ Brazelton: Interactivity intellectually & and thereafter – live music and musical performances. 

    NN: Main points of focus and/or interests as reference, for first time guests/visitors

    CJ Brazelton: I think the main point is to give the first time guests and visitors a unique experience within the space. To make it known that the building they are in has a history and is being appropriated into this cultural structure. All the signs from the meat factory are still up and the murkiness is still there. So it’s interesting to see the visitors react to the artwork reacting to the space

    FOXXY NEWPORT

    Currently reading: Uzumakimi
    Most listened to artists: Aural Vampire, The Smiths, Crystal Waters
    Currently watching: Finally getting around to Neon Genesis Evangelion

    NN: FOXXY !

    FOXXY: Just finished “Neutral”  & some next level-ish with SADWRIST. Plotting a trip out of The Bay Area sometime in Spring. Being a dark phreak and walking the line. 

    NN: Care to shine some light on what “Neutral”, is that a full length album ?

    Here is a preview of FoxxyNewports album Neutral, “Stars”. 

     

    FOXXY: Yes, Neutral is my new full length produced by MR.KITTY. I wanted to give listeners the full spectrum. The BLVCKLODGE EP is something I hold dearly, but Laura Palmer was the muse. With Neutral I wanted to open up about my life. My sex, my sadness. I wanted to take my own issues and make narratives others could relate too.

    Alexander, you work as an independent artist ?

    I am a member of Oaklands Post Primal Collective and affiliated with Chiles Equilateral Records, but no label holds me exclusively.

    The previously released track BLVCKLODGE, by MR.KITTY

    ‘BLVCKLODGE’ cover artwork by San Fransico, Jody Jock

    NN: “SADWRIST” iz a local Oakland homie ov yurs ?

    FOXXY: SADWRIST is an extremely talented South – American based Witchhouse act that is also with Equilateral Records.

    NN: What a siq collaboration Alexander. What’s the ‘ETA’ for the material coming from this particular release ?

    FOXXY: Within the first quarter of next year. I am open to an independent release but I would appreciate a label assisting with distribution. The quality will be professional. The project deserves the attention.

    NN: What exactly is being a “dark freq” … How close to that line do you find yourself ?

    FOXXY: Being a dark phreak is taking everything somber and reveling in it. I celebrate my tragedies because they don’t hurt me. They made me stronger.

    NN: Been in a tremendous trouble recently ?

    FOXXY: As for trouble I am rather clean. I am the only member of my family to not have a mugshot or rehab sentence. But I walk the line because societal expectations mean nothing to me. When I die my body will decompose into the Earth. I stay Neutral. Art is what keeps me going.

    NN: For those in the audience who don’t know who Laura Palmer, “OPPC”, or Chiles Equilateral Records, what would you like to say ?

    FOXXY: Laura Palmer is iconic. Her narrative within Twin Peaks is such a great commentary on glamorizing death, keeping secrets, and duality.
    Post Primal is great. Metal Mother has worked herself to the bone to offer a support platform for multimedia artists in the Bay and around the world. Equilateral Records is a fantastic net label. Denzi, is a true professional and I applaud how he has worked to gather unique artists from around the globe and put us out there.

    NN: I apologize for my randominity, but eye trust yu can answer this in an interesting way; In the dark the light could appear brighter, in comparison ?

    FOXXY: Darkness and light are very relative things and their perception varies by the person but you are right.

    I’ve given up chasing the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. My destiny is my own and it will go the way it needs to go. Being with Neutral Death has awoken a fire in me. To fight for the queers, the freaks, the misunderstood and represented.

    NN: Really excited to hear what you have coming! Fantastic news really. Thanks for taking the time to chat with me.

    FOXXY: You are so kind. All thanks to you and those have stood by and want to help with this. We are all family here.
