Known nationally and internationally as a producer, Blaak Lung aka EayGee now enters the world of performing combining his talents in music and song in the chapters of "To The Souls From Old" a new CD currently being released through Green Sphere Records.
A native to California, Blaak Lung began playing music at age 6 focusing on the drums. By age 10 he was on to the clarinet and performing in school bands. He picked up piano at age 12 and moved on to producing the following year. His skills as a producer were much sought after in the Hip Hop, Reggae and R&B worlds. Singing was always a part of his repertoire. Blaak Lung characterizes his singing style through a form, which he refers to as "EngJay" a combination of spoken word, dub poetry and DJ'ing.
Blaak Lung has a lot to say in his premier CD as a singer, the unspoken wasn't being spoken so he decided to put out the message. The message includes a range of issues including: the condition of all Africans in the world today (especially those in the Americas) and the negative messages we are being given. The messages in his music are "edutainment" or in plane speak - educational entertainment. You are assured to receive messages about life, people, and the promotion of 'Livity'.
Some of the cuts on the CD are: "To the Souls of Old", paying homage to the elders who gave us the direction of where and whom we are suppose to be; "Tell the Youth the Truth" sends a message to the youth about conditions that are really going on in the world today; "Judgment Day" wakes us up now, as we will all face our judgment day; and "What a Lovely Day" focuses on all Africans collectively rising up out of the state of confusion that we are finding ourselves in.
Past musical endeavors have included working with artist such as: Soul Rebel, Wadi Gad, Mikey Dread, Mahad Mahan, Turbulence, Dugsy Ranks, Andrew Tosh, to name a few. As producing is his life and first love, Blaak Lung will continue to produce while he tours his CD. We can expect to hear the words of Blaak Lung on tour throughout the western region.
