What recession? Fusicology tore it up this year in Miami for Winter Music Conference just as hard as years past. In fact, the slightly smaller attendance only made it more like a giant party vacation with all our close friends and colleagues that are pushing the envelope to revolutionize the music industry right now. Amazing and inspiring! Read the WMC 09 Wrap Up – Events, Top 10 Tunes & fun facts | Photos. Stay tuned next week for more photos and exclusive video from Godfather III James Brown Tribute!

Drawing on the sounds of Phil Spector, 60s girl groups, the J.B.s and a slew of raw, dirty funk for sonic inspiration, Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones is a tribute album to the doo-wop, blues and funk genres that have been so inspiring to the MC. The second in a series of genre-specific releases, Aceyalone & The Lonely Ones is a follow up to his 2007 Lightning Strikes, an ode to his love for Jamaican music. Full big-band sound is coupled with finger snaps, falsetto choruses and Rickenbacker guitar that is a look more towards Motown & the Wall of Sound than today’s by-the-numbers beats. Along with producer Bionik, each song was painstakingly produced to re-create the sound and feel of a long-gone era and augmented with modern flourishes. The result is an album that simultaneously looks forward and back for inspiration myspace.com/aceyalone | Amazon | Aceyalone - The Lonely Ones
