the big 09er

By Mochilla | January 6, 2009

Happy New year to all the friends and fam world wide. 09 will be a big one here at Mochilla. We have been busy setting things up for the beginning of this year and are very excited to announce them here.
Firstly we are proud to be finally be able to realize Timeless: A Composer Arranger Series in collaboration with Vtech at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex on the Campus of Cal State LA. The series will pay homage to the great composer arrangers that have influenced the music of this generation. All the shows will have full orchestra. The first one is on February 1st with Mulatu Astatke from Ethiopia. Cut Chemist, Quantic and Egon will provide the musical frame.
There is three more concerts in the series and at this moment we cant announce those details – needless to say it will be jawdropping line-up. Stay tuned.
Secondly on February the 22nd we will be releasing Suite For Ma Dukes. It is an Orchestral tribute to the music of one of our favorite producers. The music was composed and arranged by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and produced by Carlos Nino and Benjamin Tierney – it is amazing. All strings, horns and reids. You’ve never heard hiphop like this before.
Finally Dickies Europe have published a book of the campaign we did for them. PowerHouse will publish and distribute in the States. Watch this space.
