LYRICS: hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring -out in the desert the variety's surprising. RISING from the desolate earth, a live scene is thriving I'VE SEEN everything from mountain lion tracks right beside streams, TO WRITHING earthworms workin the dirt, nature's plow providing. MY THING's settling down to float~while soakin in environments, TIRE TREADS/ -from A-T-V's trace deep lines around these fire pits, WIRE THIN branches handle modern dinosaurs, who climb and soar, --my MINDS UP FOR any creature nature decides that can~be featured toDAY~FOR THESE~EYES-- speak to the skies, keep it disguised, -solo and SILENT, -now diamonds shinin, fiery hides behind horizon, while I AM imMERsed in life's molecules, joinin multiverses in my SOLITUDE echos of intentions, bounce back and sound grand, as they FOLLOW THROUGH hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring -out in the desert the diversity is startling, STARTING with a preservation of life among the starving, MARS GLEAMS over reservations and tribes, on the margin, CLAW-ING at a way of life representin star beings with CAR-VINGS i can see the terraformed bell jar surrounding, ASTOUNDING -stone~satellite exactly orbiting about~these~flesh GROUNDLINGS who have elevated fellow man to a status of BOUNDARY to be overcome, instead of trusted, discovered, and BOUND WITH end of dream- let's dematerialize and ride the entropy, end of dream- let's dematerialize and ride the entropy end of dream--------------ride the entropy

about

Oso Negro (Ontario, OR/Boise) presents the free, not for profit online release of The Doze Project EP, produced by Doze (Sioux Falls, SD). Each beat is sampled and sequenced from one particular Doors song, and then coupled with original lyrics. In general, Oso takes the original theme from the Doors song, and puts his own twist on it. Some lo fi fun with high flying concepts and delivery.

Oso Negro may now be an integral part of the Northwest hip-hop scene, but before his interest in the genre solidified during the golden-age of the early nineties, he was a huge Doors head. After hearing Doze release a string of mash-ups, Oso contacted him about making beats using Doors songs, for which original lyrics would be written. Doze agreed and began to crank out a dozen beats, exluding songs already sampled regularly in the past (LA Woman, The End, 5 to 1, Riders on the Storm, etc.). With great honor, Oso embarked on integrating his world view with flashes of the music he relied on so heavily as a youth, while working to respect the original context in which the Doors were created and existed.

01 "Good Together (Intro)" (sourced from "We Could Be So Good Together") - carnivalesque head nodder sets the mood & soundscape.

02 "U.S. 2.0" (sourced from "Unknown Soldier") - addressing drone warfare and domestic surveillance.

03 "Vilde Khaye" (sourced from "Wild Child") - a little bit of origin story, a little bit of observation & critique of "the scene."

04 "Permanent Fix" (sourced from "Unhappy Girl") - we all know that we are our own worst enemy.

05 "Big Reveal" (sourced from "Wild Child") - a 6/4 rhythm accompanies this diatribe on art and democide.

06 "End of Dream" (sourced from "Yes The River Knows") - a 5/4 rhythm supports this pondering of nature and life.

07 "Icy Refreshers" (sourced from "Alabama Song") - let's hit the bar and be a little misanthropic, shall we?
