palabara Billy y todos!

Just found an error in the vendor code that wouldn't allow our files to work as advertised. It's been vexing me for 2.5 days. I might get home by 10pm (so relieved I don't have to come to work during the weekend). Someone smoke a dutchie for me before I do so myself when I eventually get home.

Avatar Fri. 1/19/18 7:34pm Billy Jam:

for folks who track down any of this music - note that on some songs (marked "EDIT") I might chop out an entire rapper's verse if I am not feeling it - so beware versions may not be the same as u hear here

@Aaron: nah, I just moved to FL from NYC for a job. ngh is just my nom de musique (for djing and live performances). ngh came to me a dadaist wordplay one day. 'north', as I wanted to get as far from the south as possible (I grew up in the South), "guinea' used to be a term for the exotic (think the guineas in equatorial africa, papua new guinea, even former Western Hemisphere colonies anglicized as guinea, the guinea pig, the currency, etc; and the 'hills' just made it pastoral. People took to it, so it took, so it stuck. Doesn't hurt that I'm a geographer. Salud!

Ah, custom edits! Another reason why this show is killer!
Avatar Fri. 1/19/18 7:47pm Billy Jam:

hey Kat u ever seen here in concert?
Avatar Fri. 1/19/18 7:47pm Billy Jam:

@IKE - actually even on that Dessa song in the chorus part there is a part that is too poppy sounding so I chopped it out too LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/19/18 7:47pm Berd:

And a live show next week. You are spoiling us rotten Billy. How does he do it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/19/18 7:48pm Kat in Chicago:

I've never heard her before now but I just put her forthcoming album in my bandcamp wishlist. so I'm gonna want to edit huh :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/19/18 7:48pm northguineahills:

Man, we were spoiled when Billy had a 3-hour show.... Miss dem daze.... (Can't wait to blaze).
Avatar Fri. 1/19/18 7:50pm Billy Jam:

@Kat -no she's great and u wont need to edit - it only a slight tiny bit anyway - I have a bias against overly pop stuff and use of auto tune or styles that embrace that sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/19/18 7:51pm Aaron Hali:

Shit, igotstago! And show’s on fire, too! I’ll check back in on it in a couple hours, tho. Thanks, Billy! Peace y’all! Enjoy!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/19/18 7:52pm Kat in Chicago:

@Billy I have a gig in town coming up in March for an audience that would appreciate the lyrics. I'm sure I can work with it. I found Sammus through this show too, thanks for that!
Avatar Fri. 1/19/18 7:53pm Billy Jam:
