"how'd blu end up on the roots album?"


          

I only ask cause about a year ago I used geek/fan boy out and chat to Owen and Kirk on facebook chat. talk about loop pedals with Kirk or royksop with Owen. and one night I introduced Kirk Douglas to blu via facebook chat via YouTube links of blu & exile.
he said he hadnt heard it before, still never mentioned it again.
but when I heard blu's verses on the album; I had some lofty thoughts that maybe I had a part in the colab.

anyone know the real story?

But i would love to hear a full collab album just like they are doing with John Legend. He kills the tracks he is on.

i've listened to below the heavens in amongst the roots in the same settings so many times, hearing them together didn't even stick out until i was on my 3rd listen of the album and was like WaitTF!
had to check the liners just to be sure.
sure enough.

how well i felt they sat together is why i was so keen for kirk to check him out.

i met blu and exile both last year. red bull brought them out to brisbane, after the show, i told blu i'd do whatever i could to help spread the word about him.
he looked at me like i was talking shit. maybe he thought i was gonna hand him my own demo and ask him to do the same for me

still it'd be nice to know if i actually came good on my word.
