You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we have an international superstar. His name is Jay Berd. Now, why is he an international superstar? That’s because he’s going to be at The Anthem, opening for the legendary Black Star. That show is April 20 and you — yes, you! — should go. Dead Prez will be there, so you have no excuse not to be. He came by with DJ John Daly to perform “Cap Crunch” and a little something extra as well. And then we talked about everything from that upcoming concert, to Frederick’s hip-hop scene, to the importance of never giving up, and then so much more in between. He’s a funny dude. He’ll make you laugh. Promise.
Now, for more on Jay, you can follow him on Twitter here. For more on Mystery Ton Studios, go visit Kenny’s website, which is radical. And for more on Gypsy Cab Productions, go visit Jordan’s website, and see how great he looks in a tie.
