New music from Moka Only by way of the mosaically laid and organically wavy LP Martian XMAS 2017 – which is arguably the most bumping Christmas themed album you can pump through the speakerbox during this holiday season. Standout cuts include the buttery free-thought jam “Dress Better”, a cruising cool-out exercise called “Just Hold Tight”, some jazzy collabo brilliance with producer Astrological called “Astromartian”, and a personal favorite called “Timepieces” that loosely speaks on one of my favorite subjects. You can listen to (and buy) the album via the links listed below as well as catch up on the latest music and news from Moka by making sure that you’re connected to him via the social links provided.
This season marks my 13th edition of martian xmas. Crazy, and with my schedule this fall it’s a wonder that I was able to pull it off. I’ve been going back through previous editions and listening to the evolution of martian albums over the years. Many of the earlier ones had a lot more silliness in the lyrics and over the years that silliness switched from the lyrics into the dialog samples and bits moreso. This year’s martian is a real mixed bag. Eclectic. In addition to all the newly crafted tracks, I was able to comb the vaults and found a few extra leftovers from the last two years as well and, I was able to do some edits to bring them ‘up to date’, so to speak.
