LES Open mic featuring UNDAKOVA freestyles

Star Love told me about an open mic she was going to perform at in the LES. Naturally I went there to support and connect with her on her latest music that she was performing. Turns out she signed me up as the last act when no one else was around really and I was able to let some ideas off my chest. It was a great 20 minute set of new and old tunes but overall it was an opening to doing more open mice like this with Star Love and getting back into performing again daily. Check out the first 6 minutes of the set getting warmed up.

Allow me to introduce myself

In my lifetime I have experienced the african american with slave heritage embrace commercialism and capitalism, I have experienced the american american's occupy the space of the minority, the athiest occupy the mindset of the dogmatic religious figure, the privileged one occupy the desert like a colorful festive native american, the female occupy the space of the male dominating ego and opportunist, the religious guru occupy the space of the freakish rockstar, the gay and bi occupy the struggle of the married couple, and the human being aim to occupy the space of the alien in foreign worlds. Those spaces have already been occupied already by others and sufferd through. How about something new? If there was a new paradigm that hadn't been occupied before by another group in time what would it be? I only heard of few who said I just want to occupy the space of nirvana and pure happiness and peace always. For the next years of my life I am only attracting and multiplying with …

"Introduce Me" sounds of Srikology in the mix.

Introducing to you the sound of a one of a kind Brooklynite by the name of Srikala. This positive brother has always generated the most high frequency in communication as long as I have known him. I am honor'd to introduce a man who truly resonates such blessed vibes that he needs no introduction from me at all. You already know. Click the link below and listen to

Introduce Me


Recently signed to "Black Swan Sounds" they have been thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Srikalogy's NEW PARADIGM. Coming May 20th, the album is loaded with hip hop insight, dancehall vibes, earthly textures and otherworldly rhythms.

As diverse as Srikalogy's hometown of Brooklyn, this eclectic and electrifying set of tracks finds it integral groove in the artist's One Love philosophy, and leads the way towards a fresh vision for unity through music.

In celebration of Gaura Purnima -- the Golden Full Moon -- and to introduce you to Srikalogy's astounding breakthrough in …

Undakova Helps Raise Funds at ABC Sanctuary

This Valentine's Day and Full Moon I joined up with some of the community yogi's and teachers for a  party to help us raise money for ABC Sanctuary and La Plaza Cultural Community Garden.

The tickets were $20 and done free entry to the raffle and a free drink.

I was there as DJ Undakova ( http://djundakova.com/events.html ) and spun some great tunes from 8pm until. There was a bar, and raffle with cool prizes of private yoga classes and massages that myself and Star Love helped to announce. Every now and then after my DJ set I would go into a freestyle and eventually present the raffle winner with STAR LOVE by my side making the announcements. It was a lot of fun.

All money raised went to help us build an altar for the studio and to help La Plaza Cultural community garden provide a mural for the neighborhood.

Volunteer Spotlight : Written by Chauncey Dandridge on February 13, 2014

http://danceparade.org/wp/music/volspotdavidjasonwilliams/How did you first find out about Dance Parade?   I first heard about Dance Parade a number of times randomly because of living in the lower east side where the parade ends up in Tompkins Square park. In the process of growing as an artist I met Princess Lockerooo she told me about the dance parade and said that there would be a possibility I could DJ for her and the Waacktion heroes on an Ovation sponsored float and stand for a TV channel that supported the arts on television while also representing Disco, Waacking, Soul Train and the international dancers all around the world. This is when Dance parade first popped up on my radar as something I wanted to partake in, helping to gain sponsorship and recognition for these art forms. What is your current role in Dance Parade? I am a volunteer in Dance Parade who specializes in marketing and graphic design. I continuously help with my DJing as well as in developing socia…
