The long awaited release of the slyPI music video… a muso-cinematic masterpiece uncovered in the back shed of a freakd out zealot of the beat box gello tambourine… like this was a groove that didnt move for some rotations of the moon… around the earth there was no sound like the one that we The Lucky Few, have now unearthed… uncovered… rebirthed…. discovered… oh yeah baby… even in static text I’m still getting excited!!! Well… I would be if I knew who I was but thats just party semantics…

Katalyst -Say What You Feel

“Say What You Feel” is the second single from Katalyst’s
album “What’s Happening”. Featuring New York soul artist Stephanie
McKay. The video clip was produced by Bernadette Murray. It features
some amazing protest footage from the 60’s, 70’s and current day. The
clip embodies what the tune is about – people having the courage to
express their views and not be dictated to by “the powers that be”.
