about

James, Toga and Pat have spent many Sunday afternoons at The Palms working on their music. A love for Dilla-esque grooves, and love for a little bit of that funky shit, clearly shone through their jams. After a winter and spring of this routine the boys have recorded 8 originals songs, and more importantly, came up with a name for themselves, Jabutí the Tortoise. They will release a track at a time during the remaining months of 2014 as they continue to work on finalizing tunes, keeping in mind the art of practice and growth, and the great tortoise's motto, "Slow and steady wins the race", in hopes to develop a raw, thoughtful album. For now, enjoy Jabutí's first three tracks, Live It With Everybody, Shine It On, and Doowhizzle.

Track Name: Shine It On
I will be grateful, just for today
I will have no worry
Just a couple of principals
Endless worry ain't gon' fill our days

We gon' make it, break it, face it right
We all lie in, ride in, fight in, revive in
You know it, hold it, mold it on us all
Shine it on

Shine it on...
Shine it through our music
Through our sense of duty
Do our work honestly, just for today
I will not be defined.
No, I will not be defined.
Shine ahead, always thinking kind
That's just another way that we gon' survive

We gon' make it, break it, face it right
We all lie in, ride in, fight in, revive in
You know it, hold it, mold it on us all
Shine it on

I'm feeling the sensations of time
Feeling like it's been a long time, too
Reminding me whenever I see you
When you look at me
Your eyes are telling me okay this life is true
I know the pain will come and go
There's no place to go
Only a place to survive

We gon' make it, break it, face it right
We all lie in, ride in, fight in, revive in
You know it, hold it, mold it on us all
Shine it on...
Track Name: Live It With Everybody
We gotta live it with everybody
Got to live it with everybody

Cause right now, all we got is each other
And when we don't know how long
Let's live it good, baby
Cause you know I can create trouble
But if love is in the centre
Then our families are better
And communities will build
To stop destruction of the world

So we can grow it, yeah we know it
We can sew it together
You can call me whenever
It don't matter what weather
We'll be alright

Live it with Everybody
(We gotta live it if we plan to leave our children with it)
We gotta live it with Everybody
(We gotta live it if we plan to leave our children with it)
Live it with Everybody
(We gotta live it if we plan to leave our children with it)
We gotta live it with Everybody
(We gotta live it if we plan to leave our children with it)

We gotta grow it, gotta know it
Gotta sew it together
If you love it, you can leave it
You can call me whenever
It don't matter what weather
We'll be alright

We gotta live it for the gifted, the lifted, the wicked
Don't forget the misfits, religious and the riches
Standing right here, can you tell me are you with me?
I'll take it easy till I know that you can follow me
Keep your eyes open for people across the ocean
Remember where we stand
We'll be sharing the pollution, it's true son
Think about the ocean
Now it's easy everybody shares their story across the ocean
Now it's easy everybody shares their story across the ocean...
Track Name: Doowhizzle (Give Yourself Up)
Doowhizzle in the park, yeah
Doowhizzle from the heart, yeah
Doowhizzle on the train, yeah
Doowhizzle everyday, yeah
Doowhizzle how you can, yeah
Doowhizzle for your man, yeah
Doowhizzle for your girl, yeah
Doowhizzle from the soul, yeah

Nobody knows where the soul lies
Everybody is right to see a view in their eye
Even hear a reply, go 'head and ask yourself why
Why am I on a path working to perfect a craft?
Cause you'll be due, you'll be ready on time
And I'll tell it through and through
While I be droppin' these rhymes
You could laugh at me just as much as you like
Plan to put it in my heart and take a look at the signs, and keep
Redefining what I'm finding to be, ya see
A lot of motion, lot of growing around me
I see what you can be, you're my perfect queen
You're all my blessings from above, I admit
There are times I should shut the fuck up
Most times, I'm a sensitive one
Another track, keep the quality up
That's why most of them cuts are rough cause...

Gotta get it out of today
Feel a little lighter tomorrow
Lot of words, a lot to say
Give yourself up

Watching you eat, watching you sleep
Thinkin' bout your little feet kicking
While I'm sitting on the train thinking about you
There's always something in you real about you
I'm sorry that I made a mess and treated you less
Hit you on the chest, slowed you down
Goin' around, spend too many nights in town
Nothing to be found, nothing worth the meaning of forever
With all of us together, we be the baddest people ever, yeah?
We could be travelers, we could be good teachers
It's a thin line, I hope you're feeling fine
I see the damage, but we're building up a new stage
A mix of the old, a mix of the new age
Back in routine where everyday we meditate
There's only love carrying our self-esteem
Simple now, write it down, wash it clean

Gotta get it out of today
Feel a little lighter tomorrow
Lot of words, a lot to say
Give yourself up

Doowhizzle it up...
