First single from the upcoming Martian XMAS 2017 dropping December 8th.
mx2017. This season marks my 13th edition of martian xmas. Crazy, and with my schedule this fall it’s a wonder that I was able to pull it off. I’ve been going back through previous editions and listening to the evolution of martian albums over the years. Many of the earlier ones had a lot more silliness in the lyrics and over the years that silliness switched from the lyrics into the dialog samples and bits moreso. This year’s martian is a real mixed bag. Eclectic. In addition to all the newly crafted tracks, I was able to comb the vaults and found a few extra leftovers from the last two years as well and, I was able to do some edits to bring them ‘up to date’, so to speak. Dave Psy made a new contribution but, I couldn’t seem to make it work within the context of the album. Jingbell of Yaggfu front was slated to make an appearance too but, I simply ran out of time. You may notice that this time around there are some tracks that are more topical than the usual random fare such as ‘timepieces’, ‘astromartian’ and ‘dress better’. I don’t feel it was an intentional effort to focus on clearer subject matter, just a natural progression. All in all, I’m happy with the outcome of this project and, I hope you will be too. Til next time… The Martian’ aka Kareem Serene, aka Moke. November 26,2017.
