This experience producing SHAOLIN JAZZ has allowed me to meet a number of innovators, of various disciplines, and one such person is Tewodross Melchishua – the cat who produced the video above for the SHAOLIN JAZZ track “Brew Out.”
In addition to Tewodross’ video production talents he’s also an educator that teaches an in-demand hip-hop course at Bowie State called Art 408 Visual Culture, what he calls “a visual study of hip-hop and B-Boy culture, urban/contemporary art.” And if that wasn’t enough Tewodross also curates a hip-hop exhibition called M3: MCs, Mics and Metaphors.
I’d actually seen Tewodross’ video work at different events, not knowing who he was, but 2-Tone gave me the proper intro as he thought his Live Video Mixing or as Tewodross calls it “Visual Music” would be a perfect addition to our listening parties in addition to him also creating his brand of videos for tracks from SHAOLIN JAZZ.
Tewodross’ “Visual Music,” (a unique blend of vintage pictures, video, verbiage, sounds, and colors) complemented our PHILA Listening Party like he’d been with the team since day one, so lookout for him at our listening parties and we’ll also be releasing a new SHAOLIN JAZZ video of his every month.

Philly has always been a good look for DJ 2-Tone Jones and I and this time was no different. From our discussion about SHAOLIN JAZZ at Temple University to the listening party later that evening at Vivant Art Collection – the SHAOLIN JAZZ activities that went down last weekend were on point!
Lots of people to thank but its very necessary, as 2-Tone and I weren’t expecting to receive half as much love as we thought we would and that’s only due to a list of individuals that worked to help us do so.
Thanks to Jeana (Temple Univ) for inviting us to speak, Madia – for the introduction to Florcy, Florcy (Vivant Art Collection) for hosting the listening party, Alexis (Madison Davenport PR), Supa Tang for the constant spins on your radio show, Aniekan (Live Art), Tewodross – live video mixing (That Soul Cinematic), Chris Carr for shooting (Eat the Cake NYC ), Phil (Accommodations), Ed (Chairman’s Reserve Rum), Robert (vitaminwater), YaYa (Red Bull), Rahsaan (AfroTaino), LaNeshe (Painted Bride Project), Edwin, Meaghan (Uristocrat), Tayyib, Meegan (two.one.five mag), Lindsay, Asia (our lovely bartenders) and everyone that attended.

2-Tone and I will actually be in PHILA earlier that day giving a talk about SHAOLIN JAZZ and since we’ve been wanting to do a listening party in Philly since we dropped the project we felt like what better time than now.
Shouts to Jeana for bringing us out, Madia Willis (Biribelle Fashion) for hooking us up with Florcy of Vivant Art Collection who’ll be hosting the listening party, Mitch at Chairman’s Reserve Rum, Rob at vitaminwater, and Supa Tang for the constant spins of SHAOLIN JAZZ on her radio show and additional ground support.
