My latest mini-documentary endeavour. This time with Diplo. Filmed on a still digital camera at Leandro HBL’s house in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro. Leandro and Wes were screening the almost finished cut of “Favela on Blast” (yes, it DOES exist….I saw a big chunk of it and it’s very cool) for Sany Pitbull and Adriana Pittigliani.

Reggie Watts: Out Of Control from Jakob Lodwick on Vimeo.
Mr. Reggie Watts….he probably doesn’t even remember me, but I remember him. Nor do I know where he is now….wherever he is, he’s doing some cool shit. Part of the “old” school soul funk hip hop crew in Seattle back in the day (Jamabalaya, Sharkskins and alla dem), I met him at a house party where he did his first ever solo performance in the basement for about 10 people. It was killer. Fortunately, he’s still doing his thing. The above clip shows him creating a new track on the fly by sampling himself singing and looping all the instruments, singing on top and tweaking FX in realtime.
In my digital ambulations on vimeo, I found a couple other jaw-dropping-ly cool animated video clips – see above and below.

Science Machine from Chad Pugh on Vimeo.
The second (of three) video clips to accompany the upcoming release, “Archipelagoes” on Soot Records. This was filmed in Dakar, Senegal.
What happens when you take advantage of the MTA strike (this was a while ago – notice WINTER colors).
This lovingly manipulated shot is by the one called Steven Miller.
Oceans away, I just found out via Wes’ blog that Adriana Pittigliani (Pitti), passed away on Sunday. Aside from being a great photographer (she donated her time and energy to help me with some of my first press photos), she was sort of the grand lady of funk behind the scenes. She knew everybody and was always looking to connect people, communicate and help everyone involved in funk grow. She was crazy and fun (she did the bottle dance alongside all the 15 year olds) and had a really positive and excited energy. She invested a lot of time and energy in helping people professionalize their art and get connected with the rest of the Carioca music scene from people just starting out to the old school crew – Mr. Catra, MC Gringo, Diplo, Sany Pitbull, DJ Marlboro and tons of other people (myself included). The photo above was taken at my house during a Sonar Calibrado recording session with Mr. Catra, doing what she did so well – communicating, connecting and facilitating. She will be greatly missed. Adriana descansa em paz.
