Ron Trent Features In Wax Poetics' Travel Series Premiere 'Soul City - Episode 1: Chicago'

Watch my interview as part of the first episode of a new travel series by Wax Poetics, exploring the musical heritage of selected cities. 

"Ronnie Reese explores his home town of South Side, Chicago, first visiting with Todd Mayfield, son of soul icon Curtis Mayfield and writer of the new biography "Traveling Soul" (which was co-authored by Wax Poetics writer Travis Atria). They talk about Curtis's desire to own his own work, which led to starting the record label Curtom. In the second segment, Reese meets with Chicago house icon Ron Trent, where they talk about his rise through the local and international scene, which culminated in cofounding his own label, Prescription Records. In the epilogue, we pop into the (Discogs) Crate Diggers record fair and speak to cofounder Zernell Gillie, as well as chat with Ron Trent again about the joys of record digging." 

The IT - 'Breeze' - New Vinyl Release + Music Video

"The morning dew

The flowers that bloom

The smallest ballerina

Dancing to the tune

Between the leaves

I had talked to trees

In the light of the sun

She leaps...she runs…

Without a care

I wish I could keep her there

Where she only dance with me

But then

No-one else could feel her touch

See her beauty and emotion

The things that I love so much

She leaves to come back

Just to begin

Time and time again

Then

With a blink of an eye

….she’s gone

She’s free

She’s a breeze

A breeze from the wind, you see

She’s a breeze….

 

She’s a breeze

A breeze from the wind, you see

She’s a breeze

 

...She’s a breeze"

'Breeze' (FVW007)

Lyrics written and performed by Harry Dennis

Produced by Ron Trent for Future Vision World
