Dark chocolate, fruit, veggies and beer built this booty. Not even joking. And bicycling I might add.
Water was an astonishing 24 C/75F. What a difference to Boston with only 15C or 60 F at the most.
Of course there was some job to be done when the sun settled in the afternoon. Here I help holding the portable bench in place so Alex could make a groove in one of the frames for the cockpit table with his Stanley 45.
Finally hand tools for finer work comes to good use. This plane was made in 1939.
A beautiful beetle landed on the scribing knife.
Loved being back at sea and fully immerse in the natural elements again. Not many places I feel more at peace.
Currently obsessing hard over otherworldly Shabazz Palaces. A journalist said this about them: “Take the essential elements of gangsta rap: the plainspoken narratives, throbbing bass lines and West Coast sheen. Pack it with today’s trap music, a little dancehall reggae and Afrika Bambaataa’s planet-rocking electro-funk. Crumple it into a ball and fling it to Mars. That’s Shabazz Palaces.”
I have so much music to share with you, albums and artists I want to talk to you about. Many of them are Alex’s mastering clients and he’s been pretty fortunate to work on some real good productions this past year since we got back on land and he started working out of a studio again.
It is mind-blowing what a difference a good master can do to music. Most people don’t realize this step even exists as it is a very low key profession. But it is interesting to know that many artists and producers would have never sounded the way they do wouldn’t it have been with the aid of their chosen ME.
But first these three great reggae tunes by Rampalion, one being a dub version. Incredibly talented band all the way through and with the mastering work by Alex the sound is just impeccable. Seriously speaking. Make sure to listen with very good headphones or sound system please. Transports you back to a hot Caribbean beach…
