The Meaning Of It All


The focus of this album is Love.

Half way through the recording process I had some close losses in my family. I became very uninspired and just about gave up on putting anything out ever again.

With the support and enthusiasm of my great friend John Gray [who Produced this album] I was inspired in time of despair to keep going and push through to the light in the darkness.

And after the emotional pain storm I can say I'm glad we are putting this out and what perfect timing----Valentines Day! The Day of Love----or was it a Massacre? hmmm Either way, they go hand in hand at times.

Please listen with an open mind.....This album is laid back and very chilled and we hope you can do just that when you listen to it. The main thing I got out of this whole project is that no matter the struggle you should always keep those loved ones close. Be there for them in their times of pain or doubt. And know tomorrow is never promised.

This album is Dedicated to my Uncles who are now in Paradise . Rest in Peace Richard "Dick" M. Gnoth March 2, 1951 - Aug. 8, 2012 and Robert "Bobby" A. Gnoth Dec. 25, 1958 - Oct. 28, 2012.

Dub Knowledge


(Johnny Cosmic)

KB07 and I have always been huge fans of reggae music and all the off shoot styles. That's what really brought us together and has been the glue bonding all of the different styles we bring to the table. The common thread is always a love for reggae.

Normally, you won't hear it out right in the music. It's always subtle hue. We love so many different sounds and styles that there's not enough time or space to dwell on one sound for too long.

What this dub remix album did was allow us to step back as artists and experience the music more as fans. Getting a chance to bring GooZe, Tommy Dubs, Doctor Echo and Frank (FCP) aboard and really dig into the reggae side of things. This process has been extremely exciting and we hope you enjoy the island twist.
