fpAccording to Tutu himself, “Family Pants is a blend of sounds from Rock, Soul, to POP and Urban music. I Recorded this EP in my little house studio in Highland park, giving myself a challenge of writing this project and recording it in no more then 2 weeks, so I could capture a true live and rugged feel. That is the idea of Family Pants.

Oldies But Goodies: Te’Amir – L.A. SOUL [EP]

So in the wonderful life that I lead, stumbled upon this gem, and more, after completing a 4-week tour with my homie and good pal Deuce Ellis.  Deuce, who has toured 8 times prior, had the privilege of being on the road with Aloe Blacc a while back, and he had the pleasure of meeting Blacc’s drummer Te’Amir Yohannes Sweeney.

Te’Amir, native to Los Angeles, grew up in Venice Beach, currently resides in Highland Park.  After Deuce’s final show in Las Vegas on 8/2/13, we headed to Califoronria, to unwind and drop me off in my  new home of SoCal.  Te’Amir welcomed Deuce, DJ Tiger, myself and Bun B into his home with open arms and good vibes, some of which happened to some of his own production and sounds.

You may have seen him drumming with Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme, Tutu Sweeney & The Brothers Band, Ethio Cali, Sheera, Mayer Hawthorne and The County, Quadron, Quantic and Allice Russell, SA-RA, Shafiq Husayn, U-N-I, David Kirton, Vikter Duplaix, just to name a few.

Check out this SOULful mix of all easy-listening tunes on this throwback project, entitled L.A. SOUL, which was released in March of 2011.
