De Notes Interview

September 16, 2009

RESIZEDeNotes - Dewitt Moore PicAn old colloquialism goes, “One monkey don’t stop no show.” And if it weren’t true, then DeWitt Moore’s career would’ve ended way too early. As The Sicknotes, he and Bryan “Pep” Johnson laced memorable singles for Obie Trice and D12 (“Cry Now” and “How Come,” respectively) and became some of the most sought-after producers in the state. They would also help boost the careers of Rashad Morgan, who would later sign a deal with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records, and Robert “Magnum” Curry, who is a member of Diddy’s Making The Band group Day 26. But due to what he cites as business issues, Moore split from his longtime partner in 2008 to pursue a solo career.

With his new De Notes company and production team, Moore hasn’t lost a step. He’s retained the duo’s roster of artists and musicians, and added clients like Detroit staple Stretch Money and rap legend MC Lyte to his list of collaborators. The first official De Notes release, Mae Day’s Sade-inspired Cherish The Day mixtape (click here), has garnered national praise from fans and critical acclaim from the likes of The Source, iMeem, and more. Moore let MichiganHipHop sit in on a studio session and hear material from De Notes artists Mae Day, rapper J Cope, girl R&B trio Jaime Summers, and rap group DRG—and if the full, multi-layered samples we heard are consistent with what they release, listeners are in for a treat. In the interview below, Moore speaks about the Sicknotes split, what his team has to offer, and finding artists with the “it” factor.

Karriem Riggins’ Virtuoso Experience “Tergiversation” (Video)

Tergiversation is a song by Gene Perla. Perla was a bass player who performed with legendary drummer Elvin Jones for many years. Tergiversation is a term that describes an evasion of straightforward action of clear-cut statement. Perla dedicated the song to jazz legend Miles Davis, a tergiversationist if there ever was one, who often turned his back towards the audience as he played. Karriem Riggins’ Virtuoso Experience bring these internal jazz dedications and conversations to a new audience.
