Lemme tell u bout this girl, maybe i shouldn’t ;)

WASHINGTON, DC—In the Abernathy household, the alarm clock was the sounds from dad’s record player followed by the smell of bacon and sausage permeating the house. Downstairs, mom and dad laughed, danced and told jokes as they made breakfast for their three young children. It’s these memories of soul music, soul food and his parent’s love that are behind musician Aaron “Ab” Abernathy’s music, especially his ongoing 45 series.

Paying homage to the classic 7-inch record culture, the 45 series takes you back to an era where love and happiness were constantly on display. On Vol. II Ab continues this tradition as he tells the story of being in love with his woman and shows his willingness to give her the keys to unlock all of his internal possessions. The A-Side ballad “In Love” is a beautiful composition filled with an array of different instruments reminiscent of classic 70s funk band Earth, Wind, and Fire. On the dreamy B-side record “Near”, his soulful lead focuses on her acceptance of his love and he expresses his thankfulness for her longing to be close to him.

“I’m more than certain that the everyday interaction that I witnessed between my parents created the foundation for the type of love I long to possess with someone,” said Ab. “What’s interesting today is the belief that this type of love that we all truly want is foreign. Those beliefs have led to settling for relationships we don’t want. Just like my father’s record player was my soul alarm clock, waking me up to a home filled with endless possibilities of love, I have a tremendous hope that this music will wake up people’s souls in our generation to believe that this type of love isn’t just a love of the past.”

The 45 Series, Vol. II is available for download now at www.aaronabernathy.com.

I’ve always been a fan of the track Spanish Joint by D’Angelo but I felt like the original is fairly mellow and couldn’t find a way to fit it or any D’Angelo for that matter, into my DJ sets. So i remixed this acoustic Spanish Joint with a more vibey dance feel so I can play out. Added new synths, keys, drums, bass, and sound efx.

Thx for listening yall. More remixes coming, follow me on the cloud.

SYNOPSIS

The last time Cleveland P. Jones and I collaborated on a song was over a year ago, in 2012, when he added his sublime vocals and original lyrics to my pre-exisiting song, “Love One Another” to be an added bonus track to my album, ‘The After 2am Sessions LP’. Cleveland would later release his debut album, ‘Ace of Hearts’ earlier this year (2013), but it was our back-to-back-to-back collabs of “Nature Boy”, “Twice”, and most notably, “Sensitive” that brought our musical wonder twin powers together (lol) that caught the attention of various ears around the world.

Well, though long overdue, finally we decided to head back into the studio and record something just as a teaser of things to come, although this is just a cover and we’ll be working on some originals…so this is just a way of saying, “don’t sleep”; 2011 was simply the appetizer ;)

You could call this track a sampler of the first course…100 downloads, then it’s gone (on this page, at least) BUT, we’ll accommodate more copies if the demand is justified…but we went in on this one as I’ve never went this far into my jazz playing before, and Cleveland is really showing the vocal dexterity and chops to pay tribute to his idols, Rachelle Ferrell and Anita Baker (yup…he’s serious, and you’ll hear how so)!

Enjoy and get ready for whatchu ain’t ready for anyway lol
