Very cool offering tonight from David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet. Do check it out pre-debate:
Some artists defy classification. Detroit’s revolutionary soul man and citizen activist, Nadir, rebels against it.
His solo debut Distorted Soul 2.0 was crowned “Best Funk Album of the Year” by Soul-Patrol.com and earned a Detroit Music Award for “Outstanding Urban Funk/Hip-Hop Recording”, after international spins on Urban A/C, Rock, Urban Contemporary and even Smooth Jazz radio.
Slave: The Remixtape, which offers fourteen very different remixes of Nadir’s award-winning composition “Slave” (and six additional tracks online) – in Crunk, Funk, Hip-hop, Rock, Funky House, Techno styles and more – was a #5 Breakout track on Billboard’s Club Play chart, and took home a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Electronic Dance Recording.
On Nadir’s new album, Workin’ For The Man, revolutionary socio-political commentary collides with explosive funk and hip hop. Nadir describes the album as a “political dance record” designed to make you dance and think at the same time.
Nadir reports on MTV as the Choose or Lose 2008 correspondent to the state of Michigan. Catch his reports at http://www.think.mtv.com/Nadir
“When you get right down to it,” Nadir explains, “I’m all about telling stories, singing songs and making music that moves people – spiritually, emotionally, physically, politically, whatever. Don’t just sit there! Do something!”
