It was quite exhilarating making this edit. NASA has released a huge collection of archived footage from the Apollo missions. I sifted through hours of 16MM film to find imagery not often seen..

Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program
1. Back On the Planet
Sun Ra once spoke a future where the mere thought of a place would take somebody there. In the past future of today, Ras G explores space and time through his ancient/futuristic music. Dusty, ethereal and bugged out, the Crate Creator’s beats bring the past to the future. Back On The Planet, _G’s first Brainfeeder release in years, finds the blunted master of the beat guiding his Afrikan Space Program further out than ever.
Since his arrival on the planet, Ras G has called Los Angeles his base. Growing in South Central, _G was tapping into his innate knowledge while having the earthly experience of living in the “ghetto.” Gravitating towards the turntables early, _G spent formative years DJing spots like Project Blowed and Five On The Black Hand Side in Leimert Park until his cousin Wolverine introduced him to the SP-1200 and thoughts of production became realities. Equally informed by the looped-up dust of classic boom-bap and the avant-garde esotericism of free jazz, _G began paving his own path in the beats. He cut his teeth in the early days of Low End Theory and in precursor nights like JuJu and Sketchbook. Day long hangouts at record spots like Aaron’s (RIP) and Poo Bah’s laid the foundation for projects, live experimentations and new experiences. A key pillar in the Los Angeles community, _G is the power-forward of the Brainfeeder crew, down since day one.
After amassing a sizable discography of 7″s, EPs and digital releases on a host of platforms, Ras G & The Alkebulan Space Program are Back On The Planet for their most complete demonstration to date. The countless nights at SpaceBase behind the MPC and SP-303 have seen _G come fully into his own. On this project past experiments in chest-rattling bass, terse loops and bugged-out field noise come full circle. Ancient Afrikan poly-drum rhythms meet outer-synth splashes of white noise and intuitive experimentation meld with deep sub-harmonics for an otherworldly experience. “Asteroid Storm” captures the pulsating energy of The ASP’s live demonstrations while “Natural Melanin Being…” finds _G’s Uncle Ra sharing a few words of wisdom that go very well with the therapeutic tones of the meditative “All Is Well…”. Back On The Planet is The ASP at it’s most confident, shedding all barriers for an open and honest manifestation. Drawing from a source beyond the ego and dealing with the eternal, Ras G & The Ancient Space Program are a cosmic outfit, eternally elsewhere but always in tune.
