OnPlanetZu IS #FLYAH

 
"One day, it was decided that dub step needed to express its insane, danceable, funkable, thrashable alter ego."
OnPlanetZu is a self-contained entity, who's music crosses into a genre-confused electronic hip-hop/reggae/rock/you-name-it maelstrom of bass, beat and energy.  Their original, self-created sounds and 'no pre-recorded samples' approach to songwriting presents a fun, fresh high-energy blast compared to the follow-suit trend in today's music. Their songs contain an element of unpredictability-changing flow at any given turn.  OnPlanetZu's popular debut single, "Speakers" hit Earth with force, followed by their heavily base-infused "Fire." Both tracks are featured on the 2014 album "Adventures of Yo Mama."  Distributed through Sony RED to all major online retailers via Skee-Lo Musik, "Adventures of Yo Mama" has won rapidly wide appeal and has captured the attention of some respectable names in the music scene.  
Zu Tha Greatone, singer/songwriter for LA bands,'OnPlanetZu' and 'Bazerk' joins forces with producer, Cori Jacobs (Fader) to inspire an original and heavy new approach to electronic music. With over a decade of history in the music industry, the members of OnPlanetZu have an almost seamless way of working together.  Fader's affinity for OnPlanetZu has added a vital element of cohesiveness between the ideas in Zu's head and the outcome of the recorded song. His versatility as a live DJ insures him integral to the structure of OnPlanetZu.  Live shows consistently energize the crowd, drawing people to the dance floor.  OnPlanetZu performances might be Zu as a solo artist- proving his gift at entertainment- or he may be joined by DJ Fader and members of Bazerk.  Either way, the band never fails to deliver.
OnPlanetZu are big on collaborations.  They have many underway with Redman, Skee-Lo, Darcy Donnovan, Blackburner, Galilee, Supa, and more. They are inculded in a 2014 Trap music box set out of Cleopatra Records, which features a number of remixed tracks from OnPlanetZu.  OPZ's music is played around the world on a multitude of internet and FM radio stations as well as video channels.  They were recently invited to open up the BET Idols and Icons Awards after-party.    
During his musical career, Zu has performed with such names as: Blackburner, Dawn of Ashes, Ludacris, KRS One, Prince, Dr. Mad Vibe (Angelo Moore of Fishbone), The Black Eyed Peas, 311 and George Clinton.  He is endorsed by LinkedIn members DJ Evil E (Ice T's dj) and Anthony Andrews of Lickwit Entertainment (responsible for underground Hip Hop acts: King Tee, NAS, Tha Alkaholiks, Xzibit, Defari, Dilated People, Stylisik Jones and Lootpack).  Zu's music has been featured in  MTV Top 10, MTV Pranked, Animal Planet, Alcoholics Anonymous commercials, PlayStation 3 Commercials and Clown voice-over, 2012 feature film, "Donner's Pass." OnPlanetZu is currently sponsored by Rude Boy Clothing and Zutra Water.
Tone Toven, film director and long-time friend, has contributed to many of Zu's videos, including the smash hit video by OnPlanetZu, "Speakers,"  which earned over 100k views on YouTube within its first month.  "Speakers" has won OnPlanetZu a number of gold, silver and bronze medals for song/video production on beat100.com.  Tone's understanding of Zu's artistic style contributes to a visual presentation as in your face and out-of-the-box as the music itself.  
Stay tuned, OPZ's got nothin' but HYPE transmitting to your neighborhood!

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…

Alla P. Gakuba - A Person is a Product of Time Place and Circumstances

Alla P. Gakuba's short stories are lengthy and full of information whether from historical periods to relate to current times. The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements.

In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
