To Kujuu: dreamer of the second dream 
 
We met walking the web,
And that once we breathed the same sea air…
Now I think of you forever and never;
The 
Qu’en of all my futures, passed,
Tonight the moon is ringed with your name written in chrome, 
Your splendor enthroned betrothed to my every thought for endless tomorrows,
I wish we one day soon to lift up
our selves together out of the data mines… 
And with the children, 
To taste the gilded air of Purple Cliffs and once again,
In log off forever…

 
“Effeminence” was produced and recorded by The Palaceer Lazaro and Sonny Levine at Dror Lord Studios, with mixing by Levine and Kamal Humphrey at Kamal’s House.

…And Quazarz asked of Jules ‘Voz Brillo to exalt
and raise a joy cry with on this beat;
And Jules said “I shall” and did so, and in his heart,
he bade 
Quazarz well.
And for Shabazz, he laid up a crown of light, ‘beyond’ was his ascending refrain, and it was icy;
Alas, 
Quazarz waking lucid inside a Jules diamond dream,  pondered deeply the celestial humectation of his most favorite fruit.

And an “ode to a bad” is born.

Shabazz Palaces Share New Track “Since C.A.Y.A.” from Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star (out July 14)

Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines will be available worldwide July 14th.


Shabazz Palaces have another track to share: “Since C.A.Y.A.” is an elastic and transportive selection from the group’s forthcoming Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star – the extra-spatial twin to Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines – available July 14th worldwide from Sub Pop.
 
“Since C.A.Y.A.” features dazzlingly funky bass licks by the magnificent Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner and was produced by Knife Knights (aka Ishmael Butler and Erik Blood), recorded and mixed by Blood at Protect and Exalt Labs: A Black Space in Seattle.
 
In this newly discovered excerpt from the renowned underground publication Purple Cliffs Quarterly,* The Palaceer reminisces to singer/writer Lou Monk about the epiphany he had at the C.A.Y.A. community center:
 
“In the era of Quazarz youth, The Central District of Seattle, Washington shone wildly vibrant and pulsed strong like the muscles of the heart. Brave Forerunners, from warm points south, had arrived settled and soon began to born and unleash dazzle of all sorts from this green remote. It was here on a sunny, July day over a free lunch at the C.A.Y.A. baseball field watching the Frontiersman smash an east side club to dust, that Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star – with confused terror then resolute determination – first looked his dreams in the eye. Thee rest as they say,  is mystery. The Heritage House, Lowe’s Grocery and One Stop Burgers are gone;  fact is, from that glorious epoch there remain few vestiges… I’m one of them.”


 
Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines will be released on July 14th on CD / LP / DL / CS and are now available for preorder from Sub Pop right over here.  LP pre-orders for each album from megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers, will receive the limited “Loser” edition on colored vinyl (…Jealous Machines on mashed-up purple; …Born on a Gangster Star on aluminum).

Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines is a second, fully-realized album of new material that expands the Quazarz universe, and tells the tales of Quazarz, that sent sentient from some elsewhere. A wave warrior wielding his sonic sword. Posted to the turnt-up states of Amurderca here on the Gangster Star to chronicle, explore and enjoy as a musical emissary. He discovers a world where humankind’s relationship with their tech-devices has become weirdly sensual, seducing a sedentary seamlessness with humans, while capturing and incarcerating the results of their imagination. Quazarz vs The Jealous Machines finds our protagonist with his dazzling cohorts rising a collective Nah to the device and the guilds that proliferate them.

Shabazz Palaces Announce New Album, Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star (out July 14th), Share Video For Lead Track “Shine A Light”

Plus They’ve Got 2017 North American tour dates.

Today in spectral news: Shabazz Palaces will release Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star - follow up to Lese Majesty, the group’s critically acclaimed album - worldwide on July 14th through yours truly, Sub Pop Records. The new album featuring highlights “Shine A Light” (ft. Thaddillac), “Since Caya,” and “Moon Whip Quaz” (ft. Darrius) was produced by Knife Knights (aka Ishmael Butler and Erik Blood), recorded and mixed by Blood at Protect and Exalt Labs: A Black Space in Seattle.

The “Shine A Light” lyric video (as seen above) was directed by Cristina T. Bercovitz and Jonathan Snipes of Clipping.



Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star serves as both an introduction and tells the tale of Quazarz, a sentient being from somewhere else, an observer sent here to Amurderca to chronicle and explore as a musical emissary. What he finds in our world is a cutthroat place, a landscape where someone like him could never quite feel comfortable amidst all the brutality and alternative facts and death masquerading as connectivity.
 
The Palaceer of Shabazz Palaces says of his extraterrestrial persona:  “I, QuazarzBorn On A Gangster Star, son only of Barbara Dream Caster and Reginald The Dark Hoper - he who rides on light - dreamer of the seventh dream and kissed eternal by Awet the Sun Scented - who far from home I found my same self differents in those constellies that be Dai at my weap-side immediate and all us Water Guild affiliates who revelries in the futures passed recordings and ceremonies flexing resplendent in the Paradise Sportif armor -  raising these musics a joy/cry that way into these aquadescent diamondized ethers of the Migosphere here on Drake world. Welcome To Quazarz.”
 
Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star is now available for preorder on CD / LP / DL / CS from Sub Pop right over here. LP pre-orders through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers, will receive the limited Loser edition on colored vinyl. There will also be a new T-shirt design available.
