In other big news, this past Tuesday (12/15) marked the official release of the long awaited collaboration between PVD & JOHN ROBINSON.  (available everywhere you buy digital music: iTunes, EMusic, Amazon, Napster, etc)  After over two years of performing together, we have compiled an 11 track live record entitled: “ALL THE WAY LIVE”.  *(see footnote)  We are also very excited that the album made it into the “NEW & NOTABLE” feature section of iTunes after only 1 day!

Combining the soulful breakbeat styles of PVD with the conscious and intelligent lyricism of veteran underground MC John Robinson, “ALL THE WAY LIVE” is a raw documentation of how we get down when we join forces to rock the crowd.  John Robinson (aka Lil Sci of hip hop group Scienz of Life) has been releasing albums for over 10 years with the likes of DOOM, Danger Mouse, Madlib, & J. Rawls amongst many others, and has toured internationally, performing across the US , Europe & Japan including a notable performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.  Originally gaining notoriety during the “Fondle Em Records” era alongside hip hop architects Stretch & Bobbito, along with an appearance on the  “Lyricist Lounge Vol. 1 Album”. JR has been a prolific force on the underground hip hop scene for 10+ years.  For more info on JR, check out

In celebration of this digital release, we will be performing at Fire & Ice in Woodbridge, NJ on 12/26 for the official “ALL THE WAY LIVE” NJ Release Party.  I’ll bring along an all star band with me for the event featuring David Stolarz on keys & Josh David on bass.  Stay tuned for the official NYC Release Party.

*due to a technical difficulty with our digital distributer…….. as of right now, the new release is listed solely as “John Robinson:  ALL THE WAY LIVE” Apparently, iTunes and other distributers could not recognize the ampersand (&) sign and, in turn, released the album under a shortened title.  That will change in the next few weeks, but we decided to roll with it rather than delay the official release.

J Rawls & John Robinson present their group JAY ARE, an ode to not only Jazz Music, but the culture that inspired progressive social/political movements as well as a vast array of cultural exploration, in their release “The 1960’s Jazz Revolution Again…” dropping on August 28th, 2009 on Polar/Groove Attack.  Meshing the spirit of the 1960s, both J Rawls and John Robinson explore the genre of Jazz Music, as many would consider it to be the Grandfather of Hip Hop, while participating in a freedom which allowed various artists to come together, vibe out, and produce great music that will be studied for years to come.  Musicians of the 60’s also reacted to their social environment creating art and music that was reflective of their environment and culture, and both J Rawls and John Robinson continue that process as our current political and socio-economic times face much peril.

‘I Am Not for Sale’ is the culmination of over a decade of tireless work from one of Hip Hop’s most slept on MCs and all round renaissance man – John Robinson aka Lil Sci. Many of you will know J.R. from his work with Sol Uprizing or Scienz of Life or from the stellar output of the Shaman Work label which he runs together with Chris Craft and Lamar Gilliam. John’s is also a unique voice you may recognize from a glut of guest appearances for and collaborations with Madlib, Count Bass D, Rawkus Records, MF DOOM, Daedelus, Ammon Contact, Dwight Trible, Jneiro Jarel and Flying Lotus.

Having teased the underground community in the last two years with the widely acclaimed mixtapes ‘The Leak Edition’ Volume 1 & 2 (and subsequent vinyl sampler ‘Leak Edition EP 1’ on Fat City) J.R. is ready to unleash his official debut album release. Production on this project comes from some of the most groundbreaking beat makers around today namely FLYING LOTUS, JNEIRO JAREL & IG CULTURE, perfectly complimenting John’s poetic flow and forward thinking vision.

I Am Not For Sale! This album is a must COP! The Realness is Back…
