I recently had an idea to create and collaborate with different artists as I felt like this is what the local community lacked or dare I say , needed. Plus I just wanted to do it for the fun of it! Not that I am a heavy - weight in the community, but I think it is a healthy idea, one which has rarely been done (especially in this context) and an organic process especially when people are on the same wave length. The more organic things are the better the results therefore, making the people involved feel good. And when other people experience the results, they might feel good as well. ( I feel like a hippie right now, but whatever.)
Keeping this concept in mind , I had the idea of putting it in an audio and visual experience in the form of a mixtape well, maybe a digital mixtape, but the concept of the mixtape remains. The mixtapes will be made weekly or bi weekly depending on permission of schedules with artists that will be involved. They will be based on a theme and I will be creating or collaborating with the cover art for every mixtape. The Black Book design mixtapes maybe downloaded on the link right below the track lists.

This particular mixtape (1st) is made by Kiko Escora a.k.a. Kiki Machine, who is a friend and an artist i respect a lot. He is one the creators and DJs of Fluxxe (Thursday nights at 32nd Street Fort Santiago. Come by to see what's up.) and the director of Manila Animal.
